Lots of new faces…

I have to say, the dressing room walls at the Georgetown Barney's Co-op are pretty gosh-darn awesome. Even better? Every little silhouette is named and has a funny identifying characteristic.
So tonight was the big DC Scout anniversary party, which turned out (for me) to also be a big fun blogger meet-n-greet. After months of reading their blogs, I finally got to actually meet Pandahead and DC Celine and Righteous (re)Style and BabsieD and Project Beltway and they were all as much fun as they are online. (Em and Johanna, you were missed! And discussed!) I'm sure some fun pictures will surface -- Maria in particular had me trying on a bunch of cool eco-designs (including a gorgeous and I-can't-breathe-in-this!-teensy Phillip Lim gown) for a mini-photo shoot around the store, which was definitely a good time. (I mean, running around Barney's in Phillip Lim? She definitely didn't have to ask twice.)
Tonight's outfit included the following: lace-ruffle-front vintage cardigan (a $3 Goodwill find years ago), patterned vintage circle skirt ($10 from Park Slope flea market), skinny belt (2 for $5 at a wide variety of Singapore street stalls), my favorite patent purse (Goodwill) and quilted patent peep toes (Steve Madden, when the near-identical Calvin Klein version proved to be too uncomfortably tall to actually wear).
(Sorry about the poor lighting. It's late! The bloggers, naturally, were the last to leave the party.)
Oh and also these Jessica Elliot "natural" stacked rings, from the May 2008 Lucky. (Plus! You get 25% off with the Lucky Breaks code "lucky02".) *Love.*
