A Hiatus...

Today I was obliged to fulfill my DC resident duties and renew my driver's license. If any of you have gone to the DMV before, any DMV, you must know how excruciating these trips can be. Since I am leaving for the Holidays soon, and I do not have a valid license in my home country either, this was a MAJOR to-do item in my list. I left work early and I mentally prepared myself for what I thought was going to be 2 to 3 hours of staring at the walls, and sometimes funny people, while sitting in a stone-like chair. To my surprise, the experience was nothing more than exciting. It took me 30 minutes to give my information and get my ID and once it was in my hands I was like a teenager who just got his driver's permit. Oh to be young! Anyway, I had an hour and a half of time to kill before my next errand (... gym) so I hit the shops in Georgetown to get some early birthday gifts for myself. I won't ruin the surprise but here's one of my gifts which I will be wearing tomorrow... Anyone wanna take a guess???

On another note, I am obsessing over the Clare Vivier clutches featured in Refinery29. If you need a clutch to wear on a casual setting these could be the perfect option. The brown one with the yellow neon strap is definitely my top pick, I guess I'll have to wait and see if the parents get the hint after this post. Wish me luck! Got a favorite??


  1. I had that same experience last time at the DMV. I thought it was going to be the worst thing ever, but it was quick.

  2. I think I like the black animal print! Understated but stand-out at the same time. And I can't believe it only took you 30 minutes at the DMV... when I lived in Arlington, I spent 3 hours trying to register my car. You must have good luck!
