NYC Guide 2

NYC Guide 2

I was in NYC in April, but didn't have any time to put together my "guide" from when I went.  Unfortunately most of the things I did involved eating and drinking (shocker), but I did venture out to Williamsburg to this AWESOME consignment shop.  It's featured as #6 - if you're ever in the city I HIGHLY recommend going.  Enjoy.

New York City: Guide 1

New York City: Guide 1

I go to NYC pretty frequently – part for fun, part for work, and sometimes completely at random.  It’s a 3.5 hour ride on the Amtrak and if you book far enough in advance you can pay less than $100 round trip (not bad).

Spring Reading List

Spring Reading List

Since coming back to school in January, I think I’ve been in DC for three out of the twelve(?) weekends.  I love traveling and always bring a book – or two – to read on a plane or train.  After polishing off another three a couple weekends ago while I was in the Dominican Republic, I thought I’d put together a quick list of some greats I’ve read along with my current reading list.

Abercrombie & Fitch

Abercrombie & Fitch

Abercrombie. We all know the brand and (if you’re like me) immediately think of over-powering cologne, pre-pubescent teens, and bizarre advertisements with lots of man-on-man wrestling. The brand is the butt of an endless number of jokes – especially in “Prep World” – even though we all begged our parents to buy those horribly tight t-shirts with broken up paint that retailed for $60 a pop at some point in our lives (my deepest condolences, Mother).

The New Year

2015:  It’s hard to believe another twelve months, four seasons, and 365 days have come and gone in what feels like the blink of an eye.  It’s cliché but time isn’t just just moving by, it’s flying by.  And with another year in the history books, January 1st always seems to be that “big day” where our excitement is the highest with the yearly chance for a fresh, clean slate. While I admit I don’t consider myself an “excited” person, I’m glad (very glad) to have the chance to start at square one once again.

Washington Winter Show

Washington Winter Show

Over the past couple of years, I’ve come to develop this interest/passion/obsession with antiques (i.e. fantastic one-of-a-kind things I have no room for in the tiny place I call “home” up in DC). From vintage Hermès ties to prints from the early 1920s to LV luggage that’s older than my parents, I’ve picked up some pretty fantastic things that you just don’t come across anymore.

The Preppy Manifesto

Preppy.  It’s a word that many of us use to describe our personality, style, and overall exterior character with the purpose of differentiating ourselves. People have dedicated their time – and even lives – to defining, explaining, and curating this word that can be found in books, magazines, and even the occasional television show.
