Washingtonian’s Style Setters Party

Monday, September 29, 2014


{Linda Daschle, as photographed for Washingtonian‘s 2014 Style Setters list}

On Thursday, Washingtonian magazine held its annual Style Setters party, a private fete to honor the 10 lucky locals selected for this year’s list of the city’s stylish. The party was at Pinea, the new restaurant at the W Hotel that replaces J&G Steakhouse, that will open to the public on October 1. I’m sure the new concept will have good food and a fresh, young vibe, but all I was able to digest other than outfits and a steady stream of fashionable friends was how seriously awesome the new bright blue walls are.


The walls (which actually look jade green in this photo–also a great color) were a perfect backdrop for capturing fellow Style Setters alumna (before it was called Style Setters) Lesley Benn, who is back in town in all of her raven-haired, sculptural-outfit glory after spending the last few years in Chicago.

Here I am sharing a laugh with the fabulous Mel Burgos. I wore a favorite vintage brocade midi skirt with a cropped backless sweater, leopard pumps, and some awesome big 80s earrings scored on my latest thrifting trip.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time
    selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers

  12. canandaigua ny 14424 May 24, 2016 7:40 am

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work? I am brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    Unlike ready-made shirts, you are providing your measurement to the tailor.
    They can take your ideas and run with them or they can easily fix your design to the point where it
    will work. However, you should avoid wearing this if you have a wide or round face.

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!|

    Hence good lines and adequate arrangement needs to be made by the provider of hosting services.
    There are many types of web hosting, such as free hosting, reseller hosting, shared hosting and many others.
    The good thing is you are permitted to handle your data through
    remote management tools like File Transfer Protocol.
