Fashionable Happenings, Fall Edition

It’s fall, and with the cooler temps and changing leaves come chunky knits and a whole lot of fashionable to-dos for your calendar. Grab a pumpkin-spice beverage and get ready. Here are some things I’m interested in this week:


Spanx’s new line of legwear. Wax-coated jeans have always sounded really cool and edgy but also um, painful to wear. So when Spanx alerted me to their new line of legwear, which includes waxed-denim leggings, I was intrigued. I suppose you could call them jeggings, but apparently these come with butt-enhancing qualities! And how great with oversized knits up top? Sign me up, yall. There’s an event tomorrow at Tyson’s with bloggers from Spicy Candy DC hosting. I plan to get my hands on a pair and dutifully report back.



Thread at Union Market. Union Market, which already features fancy sodas and oysters and cheeses is testing out the retail game with Thread, “an expertly curated retail salon” that will bring together “local independent retailers and national brands, and will feature a variety of participants in the fashion, beauty, lifestyle, art and home arenas.” Sounds uuuuuuuhhawesome. The pop-up extends over the weekend of November 29 – December 1 and kicks things off with a concert by D.C. natives The Walkmen. Above: The “Prince” necklace from St. Clair Jewelry, a friend and one of the vendors. #want!




DeNada’s Autumn/Winter line. Local designer Virginia Arrisueno’s line of alpaca knits are super chunky, super luxurious and completely perfect for the season. Despite a cold (and the cold), I made it out last night to her studio to congratulate her on the line and her new gorgeous website. Virginia is so stinkin’ nice that you wanna buy everything for just that reason alone. Spotted at the party: Washingtonian style editor Michelle Thomas in amazing boots from this season’s District Sample Sale.
