About Lacey

Lacey Maffettone is currently one of many young professionals trying to make it in the crazy career path we call politics in Washington, DC. Not willing to sacrifice her love of fashion in our nation’s politically drenched capital, Lacey began to write about items she is coveting and documenting her personal style via outfit posts on her blog, A Lacey Perspective, in June of 2010.

In addition, Maffettone is a Co-Founder of CapFABB (Capital Area Fashion & Beauty Bloggers) a group created to give DC Metropolitan area fashion and beauty bloggers a place to communicate, collaborate and meet. With 700+ members, CapFABB is making DC one stylish city.

When she’s not providing readers with her fashion favs - you can find her sipping on champagne with her girlfriends, snuggling with her pug, lounging with her husband, cheering on the Florida State Seminoles or exploring the great city of Washington, DC.

    Hiii!

    So, I totally stumbled across your blog while looking for other fellow DMV area fashion bloggers. I love your concept and theme–I feel like I’m forever trying to convince people that our little corner of the world can be stylish too! I live in Northern Virginia, and just wanted to say HI and keep up the good work!

    Hi Lacey,
    Glad I stumbled on your blog! I just moved to DC from San Francisco and am culture-shocked by the different fashion. Excited to learn about the ins and outs of “proper” dressing in this town, so I know how to follow and break the rules. Will subscribe :)

    Hi lacey,

    So I’m not quite sure how I came across your blog one day. But I’m happy I did. It really is inspiring – (once I creeped all the way back to your beginning posts) to see how you grew and how quickly you did. ) I’ve been seeing you mention dcfabb, do you know of any groups like this in NYC? I will be moving there from chicago in December.
    Thanks!

    Hi Lacey!

    I’m so glad I discovered your blog (and the other DCFABB girls’) because I’ve spent the last 2.5 years despairing about the fashion of DC and its wonderful to see that there are people in this city who care about it! I’m trying to man up and start posting my own outfits, but I’m still chickening out (and figuring out how to get the best pictures on my own).

    Thanks for a great blog!
    Shay

      Awww thank you so much! I am so glad you love the blog! The first step to taking outfit posts is just doing it. Really. That simple. Just take the leap. They will get better with time…

      XOXO

    I just found your blog today and have loved looking through all your posts! Ive lived in Northern Virginia (Fairfax to be exact) my whole life and absolutely love it! Im finishing up my last semester at Auburn University in Alabama right now but cannot wait to get back to the DC/NOVA area this may! I just started my own blog and found it so inspiring to discover other fashion/lifestyle blogs from this area! Im still getting the hang of blogging but check out my blog if you get a chance!

    Hi Lacey! Just came across your blog from Refinery 29. So happy to find another (somewhat) local blogger. I’m going back through your archives now – love your blog!

    Any other Baltimoreans out there?

    So glad to have discovered your blog! It jumped out at me because we are both named Lacey, and spell it the same– both of which are pretty unusual! Love the quote about lace on the top right. Look forward to reading more in the future. :) xx Lacey

    I love your blog! I used to live in DC and always used to think how the fashion was so off. You look fabulous always and are doing such a great job :) Love seeing your amazing outfits.

    Hi Lacey!

    I recently stumbled upon your blog and I’m loving it! I am from the DMV area originally, but lived in Florida among a sea of Noles for the past 3 years and I’ve directed all of them to your awesome game-day digs. I just moved back to DC and worked up the confidence to start a style blog last week after years of following other brave girls…

    Thanks for being an inspiration! I’d love to learn more about CapFabb as I’m getting things started!
