Style It-List.

Thursday, August 16, 2012

It’s that time of the year when fall events are about to hit, to add these events to your calendar now and don’t miss them! I’m on the host committee for both this year.



Fashion’s Night Out Georgetown takes place across the country on September 6 (turns out Old Town is getting into the game, too). Businesses throughout Georgetown will be offering discounts, freebies, music and probably more Champagne and cupcakes than you could ever imagine. But it’s not going to be all about conspicuous consumption: my friends over at BYT will be hosting a clothing drive for Goodwill. You get to clear out your closet and feel less guilty about stocking it with new fall things. Win-win.

Stop what you’re doing, right now, and go to the District Sample Sale’s site and buy a ticket. You’ll score gorgeous clothes for up to 90% off (!!!) what they were in all of your favorite local boutiques. I always get at least one thing, and that one thing always becomes a wardrobe staple. Your charitable contribution in the form of a $40, $100, or $250 ticket gets you access to these deals, plus more wine, food, cupcakes (there we go again!), free on-site blowouts, etc than you can imagine.

I’m incredibly honored to be on the committee this year – nearly everything for the event is donated (the space, all of that food, etc etc) so the charity each season walks away with 100% of the proceeds (more than $260K donated since ’06). This year’s charity is Sitar Arts Center, which provides arts education and after-school programming to local, underserved kids.

So: buy a ticket. Spring for the VIP or Benefactress. You will have donated to charity, and you’ll get in a full hour before the masses. Trust me, it’s worth it.


Last but not least, a quick PSA: for those of you who love a good vintage find, Washington vintage institution Meeps is back! And it’s now owned by Cathy and Katerina of Treasury! (and way back in the day, Listopad–read an interview I did with them in ’07 ohmygawd). The store officially opens tomorrow at noon, and a buy/sell/trade program starts Monday.

    You can certainly see your skills in the work you write. The sector hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart. “Faith in the ability of a leader is of slight service unless it be united with faith in his justice.” by George Goethals.

    Everything published was actually very reasonable.
    But, think on this, what if you composed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your information isn’t good., however suppose you
    added a title to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Style It-List.
    : project beltway is kinda vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they
    create news titles to get people to click. You might add a
    related video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what
    you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little

    certainly like your web-site however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I’ll surely come again again.
