Happy Monday!
Well, the Fashion Bomb train stopped in Washington D.C. last Friday, with our last Cocktails with Claire extravaganza!

I was literally overwhelmed and overjoyed by the enthusiasm and sheer style at Eighteenth Street Lounge. D.C. had our highest number of RSVP’s out of any city, and DMV definitely blew me away!

And a skirt and shirt were given a saucy twist with a cinched belt and red accents.

As for me, I wore a Michael Van der Ham printed shirt and a Marni skirt, accessorized by my Jimmy Choo Anouk Suede Pumps.

I am honestly just one to sit behind my computer and write all the live long day. I wasn’t sure how these would turn out, but I have been so humbled by your support and honored by your presence in all cities. I can’t thank you enough for stopping by–and I can’t wait to do these again!

And I said, these aren’t about me: it’s about networking, having fun, and socializing in the name of fashion. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did.

    You know that thing where you get choked up when you see someone dressed nicely? Yeah, that happened to me while scrolling down all these stunning pics. DC, I just didn’t know all that about you! Looks like a great event filled with fun folks. Giggles at the duck face selfie.

    Said it for one of the earlier events but co-signing now with KIYOSHA TEIXEIRA for a Canadian venue. Toronto would be nice (or Montreal, s’il vous plait, since you like French anyways. D’accord?). There’s a good amount of FBD readers Up North too so please don’t forget us!
