Old Town Blogger Crawl

we love getting to know local bloggers especially bloggers who love shoes&accessories as much
as we do. thanks to the efforts by Carlis Sanchez (Spicy Candy DC) and
Jessica Hoy (Neuprofile/Ink Blot Army), we had an excuse to throw a glitter party.

donuts & champagne seemed appropriate.

all the bloggers that participated were treated to a glitter filled evening, and a heavy dose of swag from some of our favorite brands! a giant thank you to all of the amazing and generous vendors that were able to make our guests feel special! everybody went home with the following goodies: Hollywood fashion tape & Emi Jay hair ties courtesy of Duchess M  (our amazing new neighbors! haved yall met them yet?), key fobs from Elaine Turner, the taner bar necklace from Gorjana, various travel bags from Kestrel, iPhone cases and nail accessories from MILLY, and nail polish from Sugar House Day Spa and Salon.  and, of course no party would be complete without a custom bb koozie.

our blogger ambassador, Kelley from Stylesmiths, was an absolute doll. in true bb fashion, we let out all the stops and showered her with some of our favorite styles of the season! 

stay tuned for upcoming posts of Kelley sporting this seasons hottest looks from:

the best part about changing seasons, 
is changing your wardrobe.

Rowen makes the cut as one of our favorites with the Mccann

Style Tips For Buying an Investment/Everyday Handbag

using her favorite picks from Fall 2014 inventory, Naina Singla
 shows how the right handbag is worth a little extra thought.
bishop boutique carries a variety of price points
 to fit the needs of customers on any budget. 

need a good every day bag for under $100? Danielle Nicole provides 
non leather options (hello vegans) at price points and color options
that'll make you do a double take. check out the nude and black
color blocking on the new Lexie!

Milly answers your fashion prayers with a buttery leather mid size version 
of their popular Blake Satchel, in caramel toffee brown. 
neutral enough for all year wear, this durable bag provides versatility
 with top handles and optional cross body straps.

lk bennett kicks it up a notch with high end pebbled italian leather,
spanish production, and house hold name recognition. gold hard wear, top handles,
 and adjustable cross body straps take the jessica bag from day to night with ease.
 a bag with structure creates a clean line
that no doubt will hide the chaos of your life within.
sometimes its worth the investment for a
statement bag that will keep you looking chic for the next 15 years.
remember, you can't take it with you...
 but you can take a great handbag anywhere!
