ReadySet DC is throwing the fashion:district event tomorrow night at Stroga (which incidentally, is the most beautiful yoga studio I’ve ever seen) aaaand I’m “modeling” in it. Eeep. I’m trying not to feel intimidated by the willowy model-models who are also part of the show and know how to walk (most of the other models aren’t model-models, either, thankfully). I’m wearing clothes from one of my favorite local vintage boutiques, Mercedes Bien, and I had such a blast this Saturday picking out and styling my outfit (after I ate bacon-stuffed pancakes at The Diner). It’s a bit fifties, perfect for fall and I’m kiiind of in love with each and every piece. It’s feeling a bit like the fall 2010 Loius Vuitton show, very ladylike:


and I’m wearing a huge fox fur capelet that looks something like those that were shown at Dolce & Gabbana Fall09:



(it doesn’t look anything like that second pic, but I felt the need to post it. how amazing is that outfit, that photograph, everything?!??)

so. you can’t buy tickets at the door, and they sell out in less than 24 hours. so get one, and say hi!

Even if you aren’t an avid Rachel Zoe Project watcher, you can’t escape her Rachel-isms and near-patented boho look. Apparently her new obsession is having a baby, or not having a baby, or at least talking about the fact that everyone in Hollywood is sporting baby bumps. This parody video will have you laughing til you, you know, I Die.

Party at Wonderbox

DC arts maven Philippa Hughes celebrated her birthday party last night at a space called Wonderbox – I got so lost trying to get there, it was pathetic – which is maybe an artist studio, nobody seemed to know, but it’s certainly not rentable to the general masses. It added a sense of surprise into the party, which was full of interesting people and breakdancing and music and food and goodies. I wore a new vintage jumpsuit and snapped amazing half-finished tattoos and a sparkly 20s-inspired outfit.
