I’m still in a reality haze since returning home from St. Lucia. I haven’t unpacked my bags, done the laundry or basically accepted that our trip is over. And yet, I’m already knee deep in planning our next adventure.
When I proposed to my husband on the plane ride home, ‘how about Paris next?’ he laughed.
“We haven’t even finished this trip and you’re already onto the next one?”
What can I say? I’m a dreamer.
I’ve found that being a dreamer constantly influences my style choices. I want the softest fabrics, the prettiest silhouettes and perfectly versatile pieces, unapologetically. Even if I don’t find my Paris in the next few months, I want to wear clothes that give me the feeling that I’m in Paris - pussybow blouses, buttery leather handbags, a perfect trench. Because I never want to stop dreaming, imagining, of the moment I get to step out in front of that Eiffel tower in the prettiest dress of all time, i.e. the dress I’m wearing here. Can you guys imagine? THIS DRESS on a windy day? Dreamy.
This dress is from Alice + Olivia and when you step foot into their Georgetown location (right next to Georgetown Cupcakes), that’s exactly what you think - DREAMY. Stacey Bendet has totally outdone herself this season with an attention to detail unlike any other. Racks of romantic lace, jewel-toned dresses and a feather skirt that's been selling like hotcakes. Her timeless pieces are outrageously gorgeous, totally wearable, and BOLD. But don’t take my word for it. Come see it for yourself!
I’ll be hosting an event at their Georgetown location NEXT TUESDAY, September 22! It’s the day before the pope arrives, so you’re good on traffic ;) Well, as good as one can be in this area, ha!
The event goes from 5-8 and will be filled with champagne and yummy treats. You’ll also receive 10% off your purchase (!!!) and 10% of proceeds from the event will go towards one of my favorite charities, The Tigerlily Foundation. Since my mom was diagnosed with cancer last year (but she’s cancer free now, hooray!), I’ve felt very passionate about this cause. I hope you’ll join me in supporting this awesome cause and checking out the new Fall collection at Alice + Olivia. Spoiler alert: you’ll want everything, guaranteed.
Alice + Olivia
3303 M St NW, Washington, DC 20007

You can RSVP to Georgetownstore@aliceandolivia.com. If you'd like to dine at Nick's Riverside Grill before, they're donating a portion of the evening's proceeds to the Tigerlily Foundation in honor of the event as well. When you RSVP for the event, they'll handle all the dinner reservations for you too.
Hope to see you there!
