What’s Goin’ On….

Setchi is closing, and after being open for what only seemed like a few months. Business was going swimmingly, but it turns out the male half of the husband & wife team, Albert, got transferred back up to NYC for his “real” job. So off they go! If you haven’t yet been to Setchi, tomorrow’s a good time to head over: their chic and eco-friendly clothes and accessories have all been marked down a whopping 50% off! Setchi will be liquidating all of its merchandise at next week’s District Sample Sale, along with Alex Boutique, which I’m sad to say announced its closing just yesterday. Alex carries beautiful things including some very cool designer vintage, but it was the old location, location, location adage that ultimately did them in. I know part-owner Liberty Jones is staying busy with Apres Peau though, and timing with the District Sample Sale couldn’t be better for all of us who’re dying to update our wardrobes. Speaking of the District Sample Sale, have any of you SEEN their list of auction items?! A-Mazing. I WANT IT ALL. A few of the offerings from the “Haute Pursuit:”

Fashion 101 + 10: You and nine guests will be feted at Cusp in Georgetown for light bites and drinks, a private fashion presentation and complimentary favors. You, as uber-hostess, will also receive a $250 handbag of your choice. Value: $750
…I do desperately need a new bag. The scratched-up tote I’ve been carrying has GOT to go.

The New Pink: In celebration of their upcoming April trunk show at Harriet Kassman, Pink Tartan offers up this spring cardigan from their Spring/Summer 2008 runway collection, size M for Mahvelous. Value: $249.
…Ohhhh man. I’m in love. With every.single.outfit. from this line. Harriet Kassman may have just become my favorite boutique.

South Beach for Spring: enjoy a two-day stay in a suite at the oceanfront Sagamore, cited as one of the Top 20 Beach Hotels in the World by Conde Nast. Known as “The Art Hotel,” the Sagamore is home to exclusive club Social Miami and to the renowned contemporary art space, the Sagamore Collection. Value: $1,200

…YEYAHH, how HOTT is that. I love hotels – even sorta crappy ones actually, but ugh, drooooool. The hotels in South Beach are amazing.

Not to mention the Creme de la Mer package (I’m the first person to think that ridiculously pricey creams are total BS…but I’ve always been a bit fascinated by this one) and the R. Nichols print (I have the Washington Monument cards – they are so single-girl-in-the-city….OUR city!)….

Also click-worthy: StoreAdore launched in Washington….

And DC Fashion Week kicks off this weekend. I’ll be going to shows Saturday and Sunday – I’m excited to give you all the full report.
