I reviewed the store right before we all had that conversation about jeans…skinny jeans in particular. Update: I bought a pair! Not from Denim Bar though…don’t kill me Mauro! I found a pair I liked at Zara actually, for around $80. I loved the Iron Army jeans I tried on at Denim Bar, but they sat a little too low on the waist for me. Don’t worry though Mr. Farinelli, I’ll be back for those Joe’s.keep looking »
This came as such a shock this morning. I was there yesterday, and I spent a wonderful leisurely afternoon enjoying what everyone loves about the place: sampling and buying delicious fruits and vegetables, digging through bins of vintage linens and daydreaming about the home I might decorate someday, and people watching of course. As a small-town transplant, I’ve always treasured the laid-back, neighborhood vibe at the Market and the family-owned businesses in particular. I can’t get the face of the man who sold me fresh pasta yesterday out of my head.
Keep reading for some more pictures from the last Sunday at Eastern Market. I suspect it won’t be the same for a long time.keep looking »
This photo really shows the variety of styles that you might see at an Ethiopian wedding celebration. The older women on the left are wearing the more traditional dresses, while the other two women wear more modern, Westernized outfits. All of their outfits were custom-made by local Ethiopian dressmakers; the woman in the short dress had hers made at a clothier on 14th Street.
I love the pink color of the dress on the right…it reminds me of the cherry blossom petals, which have begun to shed and layer the sidewalks in a kind of Spring snow:
SoooOoOoOO……took me long enough, have are the pictures, finally, from STYLEistics! A whole host of things kept me from posting these till now: screwy computers issues, forgetting to upload them…sheer laziness! Saturday night’s STYLEistics over at the Rock & Roll Hotel was a display of, as one partygoer noted, everyone in their “hipster best.” Lots of offbeat vintage, cool hair, and just original, fun personal style.
My Saturday night really reinforced all that I have come to love about Washington. I went from snapping pictures of presidential candidates, women in elegant gowns, and important journalists at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner to capturing local independent designers and the young shoppers who love them….check out more here, and enjoy!keep looking »
