Weekend Winner & More


What a whirlwind of a weekend! Saturday night’s opening of Flaunt was a huge success: the photos are amazing – I can’t wait to tell you more about the designers and the back-stories of some of these collaborations. June 6, when we hold the fashion presentation, is going to be a great night. Save the date. And then Dana’s show yesterday was packed. Photos galore coming….

In the meantime, I want to announce the winner of the Freebie Weekend contest for the Chickdowntown top and scarf as Mary, who envisioned herself wearing the scarf at home, around her head a la Little Edie, for a Saturday morning on the couch. I loved reading everyone’s styling ideas, and thought it was great that some of you suggested wearing the scarf as a belt, on the head and around the wrist. You all had great ideas for this contest – I’m insanely jealous of the handful of you going abroad in the coming weeks – send me photos! Buy some great cheap scarves while you’re there! This contest gave me some serious shoppinglust, and now I can’t stop drooling over these unapologetically sweet earrings from Rachel Leigh and the summery sandals from Mystique.

A now, a few things:

++14th Street boutique Redeem is throwing one of their fun, DJ-infused, Red Stripe-sponsored parties called Three Labels Three Cities on Saturday, May 2. You’ll meet the faces behind New York line Love Brigade, Ohio-based men’s label Wrath Arcane, and DC’s own Plastic Heaven, launching a line of dresses inspired by the book The Secret Garden by Francess Hodgson Burnett.

++Dupont boutique Terra is presenting “Fashionably Fit: Style For Your Body on Your Budget” tomorrow from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Darlington House (1610 20th St. NW, 3rd floor). RSVP hello@shopterradc.com.
