Flapper Fashion at the Phillips

Flapper Fashion at the Phillips

It's the Phillips Collection's 90th anniversary! The art museum launched a year-long celebration with a marvelous event thrown by The Phillips Contemporaries entitled, "Speakeasy: 90 Years on 21st Street." The best thing about the event? The fashion, of course! Participants were encouraged to dress in vintage styles from the 1920's. The results were amazing!

Your One Fashion Resolution for 2011

Your One Fashion Resolution for 2011

If you only have one fashion resolution for the New Year, let it be this: only buy things that make you feel fantastic. It may sound simplistic, but many times people purchase things that they are just "eh" about. Sometimes those purchases are made for very practical reasons - lack of time / money / energy, or it is just difficult to find clothing that fits correctly. But, one purchase that is just "okay" leads to more purchases that "will do"....and that leads to an entire closet of "meh" clothing. It's one of the reasons people can have an entire closet full of clothes, yet feel like they have nothing to wear.

You know you’re a Washingtonian If……

John Kelly, Washington Post Staff Writer, wrote an article a few weeks ago asking us to test our knowledge about the DC area.  Kelly asks questions ranging from how the northern snakeheads got in a Crofton pond to what outfit was the hatchet wielding man attacking motorists and others in Fairfax County was wearing.  As one who was born and raised in Washington, DC, I pretty much failed the test.

Pretty Party Style

New Year's Eve is a time to party, but it can also be a time of fashion frustration. If you are already stressing about what to wear on the last night of 2010, here are a few suggestions so you can ring in 2011 in style. 

1. Oh, Betsey Johnson, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. The Evening Organza with Flowers Strapless Dress reminds me of a shorter version of Audrey Hepburn's black and white dress in Roman Holiday. A modern, flirty update on a classic dress. 

Store: Betsey Johnson

Multiple Locations: 3029 M Street, NW (Georgetown); 1809 G International Drive (Tyson's); online

Price: $388.00 - get 40% off on the Betsey Johnson website for a limited time. 

DC Cold Weather Style

One thing is for certain: DC is freezing cold these days. Whether you are holed up in a roasty-toasty apartment or still trying to make your way back to the District after the holidays, you will most certainly need warm clothing throughout the next few weeks. These clothing options are fashionable, warm, and can be found in local DC boutiques. (Or, if you don't want to venture outside, these boutiques are also online!) 

Resort Wear 2011

Resort Wear 2011

It's hard to think about short sleeves, blouses, and sundresses while there is still snow on the ground, but the latest designer Resort Wear lines are now available. 

Resort Wear was originally marketed to people who were going to spend December and January traveling to warm, tropical climates. Now it is seen as a year-round look that is especially useful to those who live in sunny parts of the United States and abroad. 

As we sit in DC wrapped in layers of clothing and wearing accessories like mittens and faux fur hats, it's nice to take a break and imagine sunshine and mild breezes. 

Here's a look at one of my favorite pieces from the Alice + Olivia Resort line. It's called the Denim Roxanna Bustier Dress and it retails for $297. I love that bright green color on such a classic shape! 

Are you one of the lucky ones that will be traveling somewhere warm in the coming weeks? If so, do tell! 

One Is the Magic Number: One Lounge Celebrates One Year Anniversary

One Is the Magic Number: One Lounge Celebrates One Year Anniversary

It's hard to believe that Dupont Circle's very own, One Lounge has only been open for just one year. In this short time, the restaurant and lounge has managed to become a hot spot destination for dining and special events alike, welcoming in some of DC's most high-profile personalities.

On Tuesday night, Washington Capitals' stars Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Semyon Varlamov joined One Lounge co-owners Niko Papademtriou, Seth McClelland, Filipp Zeldin and Daniel Kramer to make a toast to the restaurant's one-year anniversary. Guests were privy to passed hors d'oeuvres and a four hour open bar sponsored by Perrier-Jouet, Red Bull and Svedka featuring One Lounge's new winter cocktails.
