twenty twelve

1a 2 1 4 3 6 10 9 7 11

2012 was a big year for this girl. District Sparkle was created. G.L.A.M. hosted its first inaugural fashion show. I became a momma to the sweetest pup on the planet. Pup & I moved into our own place. I landed my dream job. I've met some amazing people through this little blog in the past 9 months that have become life-long friends.
I'm hopeful that there are more wonderful things to come in the years ahead.
Thank you for your loyalty & support in what has been one of the best years of my life.

merry happy

celebrate with champagne

Christmas day has come & gone but that's no reason to end the holiday celebrations. In hopes of keeping spirits merry & bright, Andotherbrands & I are teaming up to give two lucky readers one of my absolute favorite necessities in a few of my favorite colors.
These little life savers are my go-to hair accessory whether I'm sporting one in my hair at the gym or as part of my arm party for those just-in-case moments out on the town.

I'm currently loving the Fine Featherheads purple haze & champagne fly ties sets & with four colors to choose from in each set I'm covered in any situation. 
Lucky for you, Andotherbrands is giving away TWO sets of champagne fly ties! The perfect color set to ring in the new year & to accompany that gold arm party :)

a christmas story

At this point, even my Christmas shopping is finished so godspeed to those of you still on the road today. A word to the wise: Avoid Tysons. 
We're hours out, folks. Hours out from my most favorite day which always seems to go by a little more quickly every year. When my brother & I were younger we'd spend hours talking about what we'd leave for Santa & how we'd sneak attack the presents under the tree in the morning. There was only one way to get downstairs but that didn't stop us from constructing a brightly colored map year after year.
As we get older, Christmas day is celebrated weeks early with family members that live far away, for multiple days with friends that share the same affinity for Elf & twinkle lights, & up until New Years with the ones that have been traveling. Christmas day is something so different than it used to be. I so enjoy holding on to little pieces that are the same but I wouldn't give up these new celebrations & traditions for the world.

Old or new, what are your favorite holiday traditions?


a little sparkle

Two posts in one day!? What gives?
I recently acquired this beauty & now have sparkle on my mind. To be fair, when is sparkle not on my mind... So, whilst you finish up your last minute holiday shopping I leave you with the images that I'm currently crushing on.

this & that

While Wendell does not enjoy modeling he was quite pleased with how our holiday cards turned out.

casual friday

Fridays are a favorite of mine simply for the fact that I can ditch the suit pants & don something a little more fun. I knew these wide had to be mine from the moment I laid my eyes on them. Since they have joined my closet they've been out to drinks, brunch, & have kept me cozy & casual at work. Hands down my favorite piece of the moment.


charity chic

This past weekend, a few of my favorites & I put on our best holiday threads & ventured out for a night of friendship, fun, & charity. Lacey, Alison, & I hosted the 4th Annual District Gala's Best Dressed portion of the evening & had an absolute blast. 

As an active advocate for children, I was thrilled to support an event where proceeds from the evening benefited Horton's Kids - an organization dedicated to educate & empower the children of Washington, DC’s Ward 8 by providing comprehensive, direct services which improve the quality of their daily lives & nurture their desire & ability to succeed. Thanks to the new friends we made, the rocking dance moves we learned, & the cause we were all there to support, this is sure to be an annual event for us.

a very bevel christmas

You all know how much I adore finding new & beautiful gems & thanks to Bevel I have found my latest accessory obsession. Bevel is a new startup that hosts up and coming designers in online trunkshows. To help kick off their new website, just in time for the holiday season, I'm teaming up with them for Bevel's 12 Days of Christmas. It was love at first sight when I spotted these EK gems as I cruised Bevel's website. I'm a sucker for gold accessories & the tassel detailing is too unique to pass up. I've quickly incorporated my EK tassel bracelet into my every day arm party & love the accent it adds to any outfit, night or day. The quality is amazing & with so many colors to choose from these EK bracelets make the perfect stocking stuffer this holday season!

After reading about the type of woman Emily envisions wearing her pieces, I knew this was an absolute perfect match: "The E.Kammeyer woman loves accessories.  She likes to find pieces that update her wardrobe without having to break the bank.  She follows trends, but isn’t a slave to fashion that doesn’t work for her look.  She loves vintage, uniqueness, and finding pieces that make people stop and ask, “Where did you get that?” -E.K.

District Sparkle readers can get an exclusive look into Bevel here with code NYC10. Make someone's holiday sparkle this season with fresh new jewels courtesy of Bevel.

As a thank you to my amazing readers Bevel, Emily, & I are teaming up to give one lucky reader an Emily Kammeyer Leather Triple Wrap Bracelet with gold tassel detail in Bronze.
