I’m Still Here….& Haute Time in the City.

It’s been a while since I posted, eep! Sorry I’ve been gone you guys. While I was out I:

…donated no less than EIGHT bags of clothing to Martha’s Table

…entered every available contest on Lucky’s website. In this economy, who wouldn’t want a shopping spree in San Francisco or this floaty, feminine dress Zooey Deschanel wore on the July cover?! (*little known fact: my mom wanted to name me Zooey. My dad hated it.)

…saw one of my photos published in TIME magazine (a few months ago…it had John McCain on the cover) and just the other day, on Gourmet.com (hi Ruth)! The photo is a hunger-inducing shot of the burger at Westend Bistro by Eric Ripert – easily the best burger in town, if you ask me.

Let me make my absence up to you: here’s the dish on two local designer trunk shows/parties happening this week. Happy hour near U Street today – one is in just a few hours!

UPDATE: I had typed Policy’s trunk show as August 31 but it’s July 31 – *this* Thursday. I hear t-shirts are less than $20. So – affordable. yay!



What: Rochelle Behrens Collection
Who: Rochelle Behrens, lobbyist by day, designer by night. She started her line after becoming frustrated by button-down shirts that didn't fit (mind the gap!).
When: Tonight, starting at 6
Where: The designer's Logan Circle apartment. More details here.
Buying: Credit cards accepted; garments are sizes 0-12. Sorry, I'm not sure what the word is on pricing, but I'll let you know if I hear before 6.


What: DC mixed-media artist Billy Colbert launches Policy, a line of urban pop clothing for men and women.
Who: Presented by Philippa over at The Pink Line Project, and sponsored by PN Hoffman, Busboys & Poets and Utrecht Art Supplies.

* yes, that is Sheldon.
**Can't seem to get much out of Policy's site (maybe it's my computer?), but see some additional images here & here.
