DEAN'S LIST :: 10/16/17

DEAN'S LIST :: 10/16/17

A Gin & Tonic Festival, some old prints I found at a local flea market, a rowing blazer that I've come to love, another piece of trash fiction that's actually not that trashy, and a new collaboration with Ladurée.

Harriman Recap

Harriman Recap

Another Harriman Cup is penciled in the history books with Summer 2017 coming to a final close.  It's hard to believe that this was my fifth match marking half a decade's worth of boarding the LIRR in my loudest of clothes

33rd Harriman Cup

33rd Harriman Cup

The Harriman Cup: It's the yearly match between UVA and Yale where alumni (and wannabes like myself) storm Penn Station and board the LIRR for a day of polo dressed in blindingly colorful outfits and a never-ending flow of libations.

Dumbarton Oaks

Dumbarton Oaks

I hate (hate) being photographed - it's why I started the profile series and haven't done a post that involves an #OOTD since 2015.  But my good friend Alina (who's wildly talented behind the lens) has been begging to do a shoot with me for over a year.  I've declined more times than I can count, but when she came down from New York for a weekend she forced my hand and dragged me to Dumbarton Oaks tucked away in Georgetown.

2017 Washington Winter Show

2017 Washington Winter Show

It's one of the coolest events that I attend here in DC.  I love antiques and anything that has some history to it particularly with prints from the late 1890s and early 1900s.  While my budget doesn't allow for the purchase of a Chippendale sideboard (yet), the Washington Winter Show serves as an opportunity for interior inspiration and to see (or lust over) pieces that are highly sought out drawing vendors, collectors, and spectators from all over the United States.

Orlando Guide

Orlando Guide

Orlando: The last time I was there was probably a decade or so ago when my parents took me on that ever-so-important childhood trip to Disney World.  Even at the age of twelve, I wasn’t a big fan of the experience – long lines, hot weather, and those massive turkey legs that are larger than a child’s torso.  Perhaps I’ve become sour with old age, but the pictures that sit in the family scrapbook of the excursion features a child (me) with a not-so-pleasant facial expression.

32nd Harriman Cup

32nd Harriman Cup

Drinks were poured (in amounts that would make your Mother consider sending you to Passages Malibu), divots were stomped (one bro put on a dance show on the field sponsored by his intake of bourbon - should have snapped a video), and awards were given because the players shouldn't be the only ones who are allowed to compete.

MIAMI GUIDE

MIAMI GUIDE

Last month I (spontaneously) went to Miami for a long weekend.  While I still came back to DC whiter than rice, I did stop into some awesome restaurants and a couple cool shops worth noting.

DC Brunch Guide

DC Brunch Guide

Brunch:  Some people call it #basic, but I call paying $35 for endless booze and food to be a smart investment.  Having lived in DC for (almost) four years now, I thought I'd share my favorite spots.  All - clearly - are bottomless.

Read Wall

Read Wall

Read Wall - it's the name of the brand and owner.  I met Read awhile back (possibly when I was a freshman in college) at a random holiday pop-up in Georgetown with Tuckernuck, Chubbies, and a collection of other local, small brands.  We've kept in touch ever since and when I heard about his new storefront in Shaw, I popped in for a visit.
