PhotobucketOur first blog sponsored event! We love all the support we got when putting it together and we connected with some wonderful ladies who we now call blogger bff's - check out Tammy, Erika and Natty! We didn't event talk at that time but they came to support and that is how our friendship started. Check out the entire post HERE!

 The Release of our first ever big collab with South Moon Under & a dream come true hosting the party with Dani Stahl. When it was time to pick our team for this lookbook we were happy to work with Marshall and Carla of TPWP who did an amazing job capturing what we had in mind. We also learned that modeling is not easy, especially in 30 degree weather by the beach haha. Check out the entire lookbook and lookbook video HERE! Photos of the event HERE!

Attending fashion week alone was challenging without Katya, but it was still a lot of fun. Every time we go we meet new people in the fashion industry, this last time I got the pleasure of meeting Ms. Piggy her self, insta flash back HERE! I was also lucky enough to meet my fashion Icon Miroslova Duma - she is even more gorgeous in person ;)

Since our first lookbook collab with Violet boutique had such an overwhelming response, July gave us another opportunity to work with her. This time we teamed up with Caroline Lacey and we are so happy we did because the end product was amazing! Check out the video of this lookbook HERE

Our second partnership with South Moon Under was another amazing experience! This time we worked behind the lens directing and coming up with the concept -- we obviously teamed up with our fav blogger BFFs and partners, TPWP for the project. Check out the video lookbook HERE!

We were so happy when Net A Porter contacted us and asked us to join them for brunch earlier this month. It feels good to know that DC is on the radar of companies such as Net-A-Porter.  Read more about this post HERE!

Marie Claire January 2013 'What I Love About Me' feature. This was a nice end of the year surprise. It's great to be featured along so many of our blogger friends - looks like DC is once again on the fashion radar of large publications such as Marie Claire! ;)

So needless to say after looking back at this year in review that it has been one heck of a year for us!!!  We are beyond thankful to all of you for your continuous support, for all of the opportunities that our blog keeps giving us, and most importantly for all of the sweet people that we met and keep on meeting during this journey of ours. We hope 2013 is just as amazing. So cheers to 2013 and to all of those dreams you want to come true ;)
