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.

    I have a website I will be updating a few times a week with original animations and short films along with concept art for the animations and other kinds of media. How can I copyright everything on my site so that the copyright info I have on the bottom of every page “All original content (C) 2008 (My Name)” actually means something? Will my logo, site name, all content be copyrighted?.

    Thanks for your article odpdoss. What I want to point out is that while searching for a good online electronics store, look for a web page with full information on critical indicators such as the security statement, safety measures details, payment guidelines, along with terms and also policies. Often take time to read the help as well as FAQ pieces to get a superior idea of the way the shop operates, what they are capable of doing for you, and how you can make use of the features.
