Refinery 29 has finally made it to DC!! Last night was the launch party at Madewell in Georgetown. I spent it with my fabulous friend, Carrie, of Plums in the Icebox.  She introduced me to Tania of What Would a Nerd Wear and Lauren of My Closet in Sketches. I am already addicted to their blogs. You have to check them out! It was a great time of shopping and meeting new people. They even had a fun photo booth set up and we couldn't pass up getting ours taken! I, of course, was lusting after the Alexa Chung for Madewell collection. Instead, I picked up something from the sale rack. Gotta remember those bills that need to be paid! Drinks were being served and a DJ was playing. It was a great night.

So.. here is an official welcome to DC, Refinery 29! xoxo
