Splurge or Save: Crystal Bow Clutches

0 comments
I recently came across this cute little Ted Baker clutch on Pinterest and while I loved it, I knew there just had to be a similar and less-expensive version out there somewhere. I found it in Modcloth's 'Sweet Structure clutch'. While both are adorable, the Modcloth version is a great choice if you're looking to save a few dollars.

Splurge (Ted Baker Clutch, $170) / Save (Modcloth Sweet Structure Clutch, $49.99)

Artist Kim Holland at Wild Hand Workspace

1 comment
Kim Holland is one of those friends that I've had since kindergarten. We both went our separate ways after graduating high school in PA (where she was voted Most Artistic!), yet somehow we ended up near each other again in DC. Now, my talented friend is having her first solo art exhibition at Wild Hand Workspace in Brookland. The opening reception will be on May 8 and is not to be missed!


From Wild Hand Workspace:

"Join us Thursday, May 8th from 6-9PM for the opening of artist + painter Kim Holland's solo show at Wild Hand Workspace. Her recent work re-imagines the dreamscape of the fictional flower and the conjured 1980’s graveyard. Applying intuitive responses to her work, she evokes beautiful, organic elements of natural selection in shape and color. Each canvas and watercolor tells a story of surprise, discovery, and our mind’s relationship with fantasized living life forms. The show will be on display daily from May 8th through May 25th."

Styled By Shell B

11 comments
Styled By Shell B - it's a concept that started in the mind of my friend Shelby and finally came to fruition one Sunday in Georgetown at Malmaison.  Shelby's concept: styling the already-stylish... fashion bloggers around the DMV.

Have a 'trouble' item in your closet? Something you never wear, or can't find an occasion for, or are just stuck on? Shelby, stylist extraordinaire, will help you style it.

Fourteen DC-area style bloggers participated in the project, and it was a huge success. Shelby and Waverly did all the styling - all I had to do was show up with my camera and capture the resulting outfits.
