Washingtonian’s Style Setters Party

Monday, September 29, 2014

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.

    Se eu tivesse pegado do destreza que colocaram
    nas redes sociais, tinha oferecido tudo inexacto, mas fiz do jeito dele e
    também ficou divino.
