Remember that episode of the office? One of my faves. Anyway... behold this cute little logo for the Urban Chic Fashion Show 2011 Urban Chic is my absolutely favorite place to shop in Georgetown. Seriously, its like my second home. I even worked there for a summer when I first graduated and promptly spent every penny I earned on clothes there. They have launched a yearly fashion show that has been a huge hit each year and I am sure this show will be just as great. Their theme is sort of a play on the styles of the 70's, but with a modern, urban, chicness to it of course. The show is going to be held at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore this fall. Follow Urban Chic on the book to get updates about the show if you are in the area!

So occasionally I am behind on things. BIG things. Like I didn't get around to trying a strawberry until I was 21 years old. And I still haven't seen Ghostbusters or Full House. And yet again, this morning, I discovered I was embarrassingly late to the party... The Glamourai party. Apparently this amazingly chic blog has been around since 2008. Woops. While I scrambled through her gorgeous outfit posts to get caught up so I'd be hip and in-the-know, I found this one in particular to be illustration worthy. I love her short hair and her crazy necklace with that neutral-ish out fit. (see previous post to get caught up on how much I like bright accents on otherwise simple outfits) And the scrawled proclamation of love behind her took me back to my days of eating gelato studying in Rome. Occasionally while wandering the beautifully decrepit cobblestone streets I'd notice "buongiorno principessa" scratched graffiti-style into one of the equally beautifully decrepit store fronts or church walls. I always loved that. Because before going to Italy I only imagined Italians said things like "buongiorno principessa" and figured it was too cliche to actually be true. But luckily Italy's collective testosterone level prevents it from having any sense of irony or cliche and everyone actually does go around screaming 'ciao bella' and 'buongiorno principessa' at everyone else and scratching it on church walls. Ohh l'amore! #RAMBLING #sorry Anyway, thank you to the glamourai for providing such a cool piece of inspiration for me today!
