Something I don't talk about much is how the ME collection is produced in an ethical, sustainable manner. It's a very important aspect of the brand and I wanted to share more about what it means.
I've wanted a fixed or faux wrap dress for years. YEARS. But, I was never able to find that fit my long torso and was work appropriate. Also, for some unknown reason, most wrap dresses are offered in a thin jersey material.
Our family photos turned out so well this year, I had the hardest time selecting just one for our holiday card. So, I figured I'd share some of my favorites on here and wish everyone who celebrates, a Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays to all!
The design and sample making process is a wild ride. Sometimes, a design comes to life exactly as I had imagined. Sometimes a piece turns out even better than I could have imagined. But, sometimes, the initial sample just doesn't live up to my dreams. So, I have to work and re-work the design or fabric selection until it's perfect.
This week I'm sharing some of my favorite businesses in the DC area that are filled with great gift ideas. Many you can shop online too, so you don't have to be local to the DC area to pick up some awesome goodies from these small businesses.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me note that I never start my holiday shopping until December. Thanksgiving always sneaks up on me and we usually spend the weekend traveling and/or decorating for Christmas (this year we were late). So, shopping just isn't on my agenda on Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday.
New arrivals are being released this week! Shop new arrivals, including this dress, at Bishop Boutique in Alexandria, VA this Saturday, November 25 (Small Business Saturday) and get 20% off your purchase. Complete details are below (and you can always find information on upcoming events and stockists here).
Today I thought I'd share ten facts with y'all that you may not know about me. I always love reading these types of posts, so I hope you enjoy. I'd love to get to know you better, so please feel free to share something in the comments or my latest Instagram or Facebook post.
1. I'm from Raleigh, North Carolina. I moved to Washington, DC in May 2015 after I got married.
2. I attended UNC and met my husband through a good friend of mine who was also his cousin while he was at Duke. My friend and I (his cousin) were born a day apart in the same hospital and went to kindergarten (and later high school) together. We were always the two tallest kids in class.
Tops, blazers, and cardigans with belts are everywhere these days. I think the trend works really well for tall women when the belt falls at the correct place. A well-placed belt or waistline of any kind helps create visual interest while creating a flattering silhouette.
But, tying a belt can be tricky. So, I figured I'd share a few tips on how to tie a bow (or loop).
I'm not a good cook. I'm a better baker, but it's all relative which means I'm an alright baker. I'm easily discouraged in the kitchen when a recipe I try turns out poorly and I don't necessarily enjoy the process. Plus, what takes thirty minutes to prepare takes five to eat which seems entirely unreasonable.
I am, however, really good at following recipes (maybe this is why I'm better at baking?). And once I find a good recipe, I'm happy to make it over and over again. Below are three recipes that I've tried and love this time of year!
