One of the things I always look forward to in the fall is the nail polish colors. Sometime mid September I started texting my friends like “is it too soon for dark polish!?” because I can’t wait for my dark fall hues. Don’t get me wrong, I love my summer lilacs and brights, but the earthy polish colors are my favorite.
It is Wednesday night as I’m writing this (hello last minute people) and I just spent all day fasting and packing. We are moving on Sunday, which I’m so excited about! But the packing…not so much.
Since I didn’t eat all day I basically packed in a zombie stupor. Luckily I labeled the boxes when I felt compelled to.
To my Jewish friends, happy new year! Last week Dan and I celebrated the Jewish new year by going to a restaurant downtown and having some traditional Jewish food. I wore this lace over the shoulder top since it was a fancy-er occasion.
We consider ourselves to be very culturally Jewish; not necessarily religious. To us, that means we enjoy the traditions, food, and values and don’t stress much about going to temple and praying.

Denim on denim, once a fashion no-no, has become popular to wear in the fashion world, and among celebrities. Big names like Gigi Hadid, Dakota Fanning, Rachel Bilson, and other well-known models, actresses, and even bloggers have all jumped on board the trend train. Not only is it comfy and convenient given that many of us have several denim pieces in our closets already, but it can look really chic and effortless when done correctly. Although the pairing can be a tad intimidating, being clad head-to-toe in the look can quickly become overwhelming, I have several tips and tricks that will have you wearing denim on denim like a pro!

This week was a whirlwind for me. I woke up super early to get to work by 7 am so I could leave earlier, which was kind of nice. But last night I was messing around with the back end of my website. I tweaked something and Glass of Glam disappeared. I was so afraid that it was a fatal mistake and that I had lost everything!
I was devastated, but I poured myself a glass of wine, took a deep breath, and called support. The nice tech guy on the phone ended up figuring it out, thank god!
The whole mess got me thinking. This website and all you Glammers mean so much to me. I come home from working all day and I thrust my heart into this. This little piece of the earth is my creative soul. I really truly love it. If I had lost all that I worked to create since January, I would have been so crushed.
So since Glass of Glam was saved, I decided to choose a lighthearted theme for today’s Friday Fizz! Blush has to be one of my favorite colors. See all the prettiness below!
First of all, let me point out the insane deals. These braided ankle strap sandals are just $20. Charlotte Russe is awesome like that. Comfy sweaters like this $19 soft knit waterfall cardigan are key to a cozy weekend outfit (or for keeping in the office because offices don’t believe in temperature regulation.) Also this gorgeous blush trench coat is only $62. Not terrible for a coat.
I hope you have a lovely weekend. I am headed to Hershey PA for a family reunion! Check out my Instagram Story (@GlassofGlam) if you want to follow along!

I absolutely love living in downtown Washington, D.C. We recently sold our car because we are so dedicated to city living. We didn’t use our car that much. Plus, the parking fees at our apartment are astronomical, not to mention maintenance costs, insurance, etc. Adulting is fun.
While selling our car was a liberating experience, there are times where even a die-hard city dweller needs a vehicle. Taking my precious Elwood to the vet was one of those instances.
Velvet is probably my favorite of all the fall trends. Not just any velvet, but the crushed variety. It like that is a throwback to the 90’s. I remember I had a burgundy cocktail-type dress when I was 14. I should have kept that darn thing, because, HECK, the trend is back!
