As you know, last week the Cobblestone Runway Lookbook debuted, and with features on the Washingtonian blog and Northern Virginia Magazine I'd say it was a smashing success!

What's more, the folks at Zoe Boutique and Bishop Boutique were incredibly accommodating when I requested that the majority of my outfits adhere to the ethics of my blog. In fact, it was easy for them, as both stores carry an array of beautiful clothing and accessories that are handmade, and/or made in the USA.

In fact, I was psyched to discover a few new brands that I didn't realize were made in the USA, such as Loren Hope's jewelry line and Eva Franco's apparel.

We shot at the Morrison House (below), a member of the Kimpton family, one of my favorite boutique hotel chains, and at Jackson 20 (above), famous in Old Town for their "yappy hour,"  where you can bring your pup to enjoy the open air while you enjoy excellent drink specials.

This is by far my favorite behind-the-scenes shot. Britta was a little bit of a diva, and was done with the photo shoot about one minute after it began.

Last but not least, in addition to the dresses you see above, I put together a collection of my favorites from the made in the USA brands that were featured. Shop them all below by clicking on the arrow buttons:
