Sometimes the most fashion-y attention DC can garner is this. The girls at Jezebel are wondering why Robin Givhan, who won a Pulitzer for her fashion musings, even cares about Hillary’s boobs (the article came out a bit ago). Seriously, worrying about boobs on the president is like talking about female presidents’ getting PMS and [...]
Our recommendations: Monday: Screen on the Green “Wait Until Dark” 8pm Tuesday: The Lives of Others (Ulrich Mühe just passed away) and Purple Rain at AFI Wednesday: Pow Wow at Spy Lounge 10pm Thursday: Crowd Control at DC9 with the Committee Boys 9pm Movies and music…two of my favorite things.
Last night, Kata and I enjoyed a night out at Fort Reno to see Antelope. It was one of those perfect D.C. summer nights – great music, friends, perfect weather. If you haven’t been to Fort Reno, there are still free shows left this summer. We packed a dinner of always delectable sandwiches from Dupont [...]
One of the best parts about living in DC is the sheer amount of, er, educational opportunities presented to us. And by that I mean musuems. DC is the HQ of Smithsonian, in addition to other privately-funded musuems–which means lots and lots of education, plus the special added benefit of every world-renowned museum/institution: the museum [...]
Thanks so much to everyone that came out last night! The party was so much fun and we had a great time meeting everyone. The wine was flowing and people were beautiful. We were so happy to introduce a lot of people to Mercedes’ store for the first time and to help people find that [...]
More DC musak! Chris Burns, man about town and busiest DJ in the area, just posted a new House/Disco/Italo/Boogie mix online…check it out! And check out his nights at Dahlak, Rock n Roll Hotel and every other bar in DC. Trax: 1. JT “I Love Music”2. One Way “Shine On Me (M&M; mix)”3. Oliver Cheatham [...]
DC’s own Wale, rapper extraordinaire, just released his new mixtape…you may have caught him at Crowd Control in March, you may have seen him chilling with Mark Ronson (now his label boss) but you better catch on now cause dude is blowing up! Nick Catchdubs produced the mix…from what he told me this shit is [...]
I just read this interesting piece on fashion blogs and street style, which I think lightly touches upon in surge in the DIY fashion reporting and street style trendsetting of late (um, yeah, I realize I started this blog mere weeks ago). Since it’s written for a small paper, the focus is very local (see [...]
I know this is supposed to be DC-style blog, I’ve just been slow on repping DC style so far–I’m getting there. For all the streetwear heads out there, Supreme’s last summer drop is coming to Commonwealth tomorrow at 11 a.m. Don’t sleep–earlier this season the line was around the block for these joints. I’m pretty [...]
Eco-fashion is all over the media nowdays, but most of it is either frumpy hemp hippy clothing or hyped-up poseur wear. Take Bono’s clothing line Edun for example….that shit ain’t even 100% organic, yet is constantly touted as eco-fashion. Just like buying organic produce (flown in from South Africa) from Wal-Mart makes sense…wait, it doesn’t. [...]
Jane magazine is over…I never really liked the rag, but I guess it was important to some people?
You don’t normally think of the above when you here the word ACNE, but if you’ve got your fashion thinking cap on, Ambition to Create Novel Expressions must come to mind. This minimalist Swedish label is known for their flattering denim cuts–their jeans have a cult-like following. But beyond the hip jeans is a decidedly [...]

Let’s admit it, American Apparel is everywhere. Looking like a hipster is as ubiquitous as Old Navy in the Midwest. It’s sad for real hipsters, who are retreating into the world ghetto glam (which can still be sexy). Still, I won’t deny it–I love American Apparel. Here are my picks from the new stuff: Menswear [...]
