Today’s featured blogger is the lovely Waverly of Pich & Roor. Take it away, Waverly!
Tell us a bit about your blog (and how long you have been blogging):
I started my blog back in December of 2010, it’s crazy to think that these past 3 years of blogging have gone by so fast! I guess it’s only natural that a fashion website inspired me to create a “fashion” (food/diy/random) blog as I’m sure is the case with many bloggers. Back in 2010 I would spend nearly every evening scouring the Lookbook.nu website checking out the newest looks that had been posted & getting totally inspired. Most of the popular looks that were posted were connected to fashion blogs which I really enjoyed reading & got me to thinking that hey this is something I could totally do! I’m pretty bad at posting regularly, but I have some exciting moving plans coming up which should result in a lot more posts!
How long have you been a CapFABB member and what is your favorite CapFABB memory?
I’ve been a CapFABB member since Aug of 2011 when I went to my first CapFABB meet-up at Violet boutique. It’s so funny to look back at this post recapping my first event, because many of the ladies I met that night have become some of my closest friends. It’s hard to pick one favorite memory, but I think that my favorite thing about CapFABB has been getting to meet so many phenomenal ladies who not only have a killer sense of fashion, but are also some of the nicest and most talented people I’ve ever met .. & I get to call them my friends :)
If you could give any advice to other bloggers what would it be? OR what advice are you looking for from other bloggers?
I don’t have any ground breaking advice for other bloggers other than make sure to stay true to yourself & your personal beliefs, don’t conform just to gain new followers. Also, to make sure that you’re being present in the moment, it’s ok to put down your iphone & upload your foodie instagram post later so that you can focus on your convo with your friend (I’m speaking to myself too)!
Tell us about yourself…
I’ll give you the basics first — age 24, married, work for a police department, midwestern transplant, permanent travel itch, foodie, chatterbox, foul mouth, jokester, extrovert, & next Fall I will be a college graduate… finally!!
Hidden talent or quirky factoid about yourself…
Ohhh gosh this question reminds me of my childhood when guests would come over & my Mom would ask me to draw animals to show them my “talent”, the only thing is that I CAN’T draw so they were hideous & the only way you’d know what type of animal is was would be if I told you. Back to the question at hand, I’d say my talent is that I’m really good at reenacting moments from my life that were very dull/pointless and finding a way to make them extremely dramatic & funny aka it’s the closest I’ll ever get to the big screen (thanks to my friends who put up with this).
What is your favorite part about living in DC?
I live right outside of DC, but I still get to enjoy it regularly and absolutely love having such a diverse bustling city right in my backyard. I really enjoy just walking around and taking everything in as well as exploring new restaurants, particularly bottomless brunch spots!

What type of blogger are you? Ohh gosh, ehh lifestyle I guess. I love cooking so I do a food post every Tuesday, along with sporadic outfit posts, & fun little D.I.Y.s every once in a while.
