Hello Dolls,

Last Saturday, I was invited by a good friend Sim Khan from Brimble & Clark to walk in the Green Cup Polo fashion show at the Capitol Polo Club. It has probably been at least 10 years since I last walked down a runway, so it’s safe to say I had a bit of rust to shake off. I absolutely love blazers, and no one does them better then our very own DC native Sim Khan. Brimble & Clark has truly emerged as a top contender for custom tailored suits and blazers. The fabric choices range from DC conservative, to NY Chic, to Miami vice – so whatever your style, there is a good chance Sim has you covered.  I am extremely selective in the clothes that I wear, and often find it hard to find something that truly catches my eye. Most of the time I can imagine an outfit in my head, but can’t always find it in stores which is why I love custom made items. I have been a witness to the Brimble & Clark process because my husband has purchased quiet a few suits and they are all the epitome of perfection. You can never have enough blazers because adding one to your outfit can always spice things up whether your goal is to appear more professional or fun and sassy. Needless to say, I cannot wait to get my own blazer made, or maybe even a few!

The first piece that I wore was this amazing orange and gold embroidered one-button blazer. Lots of pop and vibrance in an very clean and chic look. This would be perfect if you wanted to take any outfit from simple to fabulous for any occasion from a work function to a night out.

The second one was a more sophisticated houndstooth blazer with slanted pockets, and a pink satin inner lining. Being pink obsessed as I am – I couldn’t get enough of the lining.

This was an event at the Capitol Polo Club so we went with an equestrian chic theme. Under the blazers I wore high waisted leggings , a corset crop top , riding boots, and pearls. I love mixing different styles and I loved the contrast of the corset crop top and pearls. Washington, DC is the epitome of conservative so I had so much fun shocking everyone with a corset under my blazer. I am anything, but conservative so that was one of my favorite parts of the show.

These are no longer available, and this color was very hard to track down in the first place, but there are a few similar ones available this season. I’ll include my favorites at the bottom of the post.

My hubby was also in the show so we got to wear matching blazers which I adored!IMG_046310623304_10154559425700582_4556524191609776689_o 10620047_10154559425925582_2085929123087727175_o

Hello Dolls,

Yesterday my husband and I were invited to model in the Brimble & Clark fashion show at the Green Cup Polo Match at the Capitol Polo Club. It was an amazing event and we were very honored to be a part of it. I will have to dedicate a separate post to the fashion show itself because it was amazing, but I am waiting for the professional pictures of the event. For now, I will just share the outfit that I wore outside of my modeling. How can anyone ever pass up a chance to wear a fabulous hat? I procrastinated a little on looking for one, so when I couldn’t find anything I went to etsy.com and had a hat rush delivered. I chose to accessorized with pearls and simple diamond studs to make my outfit even more polo chic. Washington, DC is conservative to begin with, so the look I was going for was sophisticated, classy, and chic.

Hello Dolls,

I can never pass up a chance to get my makeup done. If I was a morning person, I would probably go to work looking like this on the regular, so obvi this weekend was the perfect excuse to pamper my face given it was hubby’s birthday. Every time I get my makeup done, I feel like a kid at Toys R Us, and I want to go home with all the flashy dolls and toys. I am absolutely obsessed with my makeup artist, Jane So. I have gone to a lot of different artists in the area, and she is the only one I can’t get enough of. I think when looking for a makeup artist, you have to find someone who’s personality matches your own. This way you don’t have to go into great detail to describe the look you are going for. And Jane just gets me…….it’s really that simple.

This time we decided on a sexy and sultry look to go with my sexy, yet classy outfit. I am not afraid of makeup, I love it and the more the merrier. My skin is a bit sensitive, so I try to stay lighter on my face. Jane uses skincare products from either Nars or Smashbox. This look she used Nars tinted moisturizer pure radiant and Smashbox photo finish foundation primer because my skin is oily. I absolutely looove, love, LOVE eyeliner, eyeshadow, and lashes. I can’t leave the house without eyeliner, and I cannot go out without my lashes… ever! Smokey eyes is probably my go to look because I like to make my eyes pop. On the eyes we used MAC electric cool shadow in “pure flash” and “love power” and MAC matte shadow in “carbon” with Stila stay all day liquid liner and Lilly lashes “Paris. On the lips we went with a berry shade to compliment my outfit, so we chose Mineralize rich lipstick by MAC in “Good Taste” and lip pencil in “Magenta”. I have to say this is the first MAC lipstick that didn’t dry my lips. I was so in love with this look when I got home I didn’t want to wash my face, but I did.  I thought I would share it with you all especially as we are going into the weekend.

Hello Dolls, This weekend was my husband’s birthday, and in true Movsessian fashion, we celebrated all weekend long. I kind of like to make all our birthdays a really big deal!  We kicked off the weekend with a dinner with our closest friends. Friday night we went to Richard Sandoval’s new restaurant and lounge called Toro Toro . The food was delicious and the service was great, especially for Washington, DC, but the lounge wasn’t really happening so we ended our night at Lima.  I don’t know if its because it was Labor day weekend or if everyone has realized that DC nightlife really isn’t all that, but the ambiance at Lima didn’t fare any better. Anyways, on to more important things like what I was wearing: I am usually a skirt or a dress person, but this year because I don’t like to be predictable, I decided I would switch it up and wear shorts. I wanted a classy outfit that was appropriate for dinner, but sexy enough for a night out. Also, being that it was labor day weekend, I wanted something really fun and summeresque before we transition into the season of jackets, scarves, and boots. (stay tuned for lots of that in the coming weeks) Let me know what you think! xo Masha IMG_0280

Hello Dolls,

My husband’s birthday is coming up on September 1st, and I am so excited about the upcoming festivities! Birthdays in our household are kind of a big deal! As I was looking for what I am going to wear this weekend, I was remembering his birthday last year. I loved my fabulous dress from last year so much that I almost wish I could wear it again ;). I got it from Bebe probably a month before his birthday, so when his birthday rolled around, I felt that it was perfect for a dinner with friends and a night out to celebrate my amazing hubby. I loved the studs and the open back with crisscross straps. I paired the dress with white shoes from Aldo that I had also just gotten a few weeks before while my cousin was visiting me from LA. We went to one of DC’s hotspots, Fujimar and were pleasantly surprised by how amazing their service was and how much fun we had – not to mention the food was delicious. Stay tuned for what we do this weekend.

Hello World!

I am so excited to finally launch my blog! I have been working for months to get it up, and I am so happy to share with you my new logo and brand, Masha Gabriella. You will notice a number of changes and tweaks in the coming weeks, so bare with me as I shape my blog into what I hope to be the ultimate domain for all things Fashion. As the summer comes to a close, I have the absolute honor of announcing that I will be an auntie when my sister gives birth to her daughter in early October. From multiple weddings, my trip to Las Vegas, meeting an amazing makeup artist, and going blonder, this has been a very eventful summer and I can’t wait to fill you all in on it.

Here is a little sneak peak of what I have been up to:

My blog will be about me and how I take life one fashionable day at a time. Fashion is my addiction so you will see a lot about outfits that I put together, find online, in stores, and pieces that I think everyone should have. Do you read magazines, online blogs, watch TV and see outfits and then wonder how can you bring that into your closet? Well let me be your guide! Check back often because I’ll be posting lots of fashion advice and talking about the things that are in my closet, how I update my closet every season without spending a fortune, and how I keep my style fresh.
