Where to Wear: Wedding to Date Night

yall. fact: we spend a lot of cashmoney on our weddings.
(thanks mom & dad) 
 try to invest in accessories you can re-wear throughout your honeymoon, futurewife&hubbydatenights, girly nights out on the town and even those eleven other weddings you.have.this.year...
 the best part of this 'dollar-per-wear' strategy is showcasing your very special bridal pieces with everyday wear and getting to relive the most amazing day of your life.

MLK Weekend Giveaway!

Where to Wear

the district of columbia is a work hard/play hard city, where for forty hours a week...errr... let's be honest, way more than forty hours...y'all work your booty off. whenever quitting time strikes, nothing sounds more appealing than a martini or two or three with your girlfriends (no judgement here).

mastering the work-to-happy-hour-outfit transition is a little tricky, but there are easy ways to rock your workday accessories into your going-out-gear.  because let's be honest, with goodies like these, we wouldn't even be surprised if y'all slept in them.

Golden Globes 2014

its the most magical time of the year: awards season. 

the golden globes last night were quite entertaining. our fave funny ladies, tina fey & amy poehler hosted and they had us laughing all night long.

the red carpet was our favorite part, of course, and we're here to share our picks for best dressed as well as some trends that we noticed. so let's get goin'!!

"my top three looks were lupita nyong'o in ralph lauren (not an original choice, but totally deserving), emilia clarke in proenza schouler & the lovely anna gunn in donna karan atelier. i love all the structured, simple looks that these women wore & the styling was perfect. sometimes, less is more."
xo, bry

"i love a red carpet. i love the posing, the silly interviews, the mishaps but, yall, the fashion, its just so hollywood. i am still giddy over all the good that we saw last night, seriously, im counting down the days till the Oscars! per the usual you cant have the good without the, no red carpet would be complete without the dreadful ( moments, <straight up side eye to you: lena, drew, PAULA, and julia's button down> but i digress, cause bry and i already tweeted about those moments. since i couldn't just pick three favorites, bry let me have four. "
xo, kelly

of course, the ever chic, ever classic black & white. this trend is here to stay, and we are so happy about it. 

metallic always & forever. neutrals with some shimmer. love.

monochromatic color blocking. all over. plus, lots of our 2014 pantone, radiant orchid. embrace it.

this is the first of many red carpets, and we can't wait to watch them all with you!

make sure to follow us on twitter for the full red carpet experience: @bishopboutique & @bryarly

Ilse Jacobsen

this winter is already quite challenging, and we have mixed feelings about it at bb...bry gets giddy at the smallest flurry, bri can take it or leave it, margaret doesn't care what the weather is as long as new shoes are involved and kelly (insert expletive) hates it. BUT we are all obsessed with our ilse jacobsen all-weather boots! yes, we all have a pair (some of us have multiple) and we take any opportunity to wear them. 10% chance of rain? you best believe we'll be in our boots.

soo, this begs the question: do you have the proper winter wonderland gear? kelly stumbled upon this brand in a small store in nantucket & quickly fell in love with ilse jacobsen's perfect combination of sophistication & edginess. so you can quit huntin' for your new bad weather besties, cause we found 'em! get yours here.

learn more about the line: 

The well-known Danish designer Ilse Jacobsen was tired of bad smelling rubber boots and wanted to create some nice and comfortable boots ideal for outdoor activities. 

Today the hand-made rubber boots designed by ILSE JACOBSEN • Hornbæk have become a design icon in Scandinavia. The most famous style being the rubber boots with the laced-up fronts. The individual rubber boots vary in their design but they all share the same basic philosophy. They are made of 100% natural rubber and the cotton-fleece lining makes them both warm and comfortable to wear. The soles are warm isolating and very light. The rubber boots are ideal for outdoor activities, rainy or snowy days in both urban and suburban settings.
