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.

Yes, that Margiela, in this Washington. Writer Robin Givhan does justice to the news in this recent Washington Post piece, so I won’t attempt to best her storytelling.
The gist? There is a pop-up Margiela store now open at Georgetown’s Relish, fully staged by the Maison team, in tandem with store owner Nancy Pearlstein. It will be open for a year, and for about another week, you can check out an exhibition dedicated to the house’s iconic “Tabi” shoe.
I stopped by the pre-public preview last Thursday to scope out the space and stylish attendees.
If you have never been to Relish before, and you love fashion (Dries, Marni, Sacai), you should definitely GO!

Robin Givhan, recently back (yay!) in a full-time role at The Washington Post reporting on fashion (“as a business, as a cultural institution, and as pure pleasure”) has a great piece about the design collaboration between Virginia-based swimwear designer/line Karla Colletto and District-based creative agency DESIGN ARMY.
Since it came out, I have been in love with this playful, stylish video the duo collaborated on for line’s Cruise 2014 line–and with summer here in full force, what better time to share.
