November 29th - mark it in your Outlook calendars

Though I'd like nothing more than to claim my post-work plans always include shopping and a neverending flow of Champagne with a boutique hotel backdrop, the truth is, I've never actually gotten my shop on while under the influence.

At least not under that influence and not in a public setting.

And considering I was able to somehow justify using both Bop's and Saks' 20%-off online coupons last week (for serious, I so needed a new black daybag) with nary a sip of the sauce, I think keeping my credit card and my beer bottle separate is in my holiday shopping budget's best interest.

But as we all well know, exceptions must be made, and if you enjoy indulging in some permutation of Champagne imbing, dessert forgoing (it'll be just after Thanksgiving, after all), clothing and accessory purchasing, blue leather furniture lounging, raffle prize winning, and my favorite, DC BFD watching, please to mark your calendars "TAKEN" for the evening of Monday, November 29th and come join the DC Style family and their fashionable friends from 6-9pm at the Topaz Hotel in Dupont Circle.

See you there!

Sounds fab!

So spill the beans... what did you splurge on last week?

dara said...

So coming! Thanks!

Hooray for the DC BFD-watching!

BFD? Wassat?

I bet your legs look AMAZING today. In heels, I presume?

BFD = Big F**KING Deal

(i.e., those on DC's social scene who have a Ron Burgundy sense of self-importance)

Johanna said...

Oh and yes, BFFiC, yes *of course* I'm in heels. Hobbling a bit, but doing so stylishly and at 5'11".

I'm so proud of you. You deserve whatever overpriced Bop handbag you purchased!

I admit, I used Bop's code as well last week. $120 off a $600 bag isn't a bargain, but sure it does take the sting off. Either way, a Botkier is an investment piece, as you like to say. I know I'll have it forever.

I'm on Saks mailing list and I didn't get a 20% coupon last week :( No fair!

I wish I could come :(

BFDs are the worst. Manhattan is full of 'em.

I'd love a dinner of nothing but Champagne and dessert! Add shopping to that, and I'm in heaven.

Topaz allows pets, you know...you should bring Monte along and even put his face on the invites. Now *that* would bring a crowd!

Can't wait to finally meet you!

if Monte's there, I'm there.

Couldn't stay away, could you?

In addition to the 4000 or so calories, did you lose any toenails?

I'm in DC the weekend after this party of yours. Too bad. I'm with the others - bring the 'Squieu.
