Yes, DC’s very own streetwear mini mall is taking shape on Florida Ave, and they’re celebrating with a party at Chloe this Thursday! Get there early!
Thanks, Flickrer Eric Carl. The book of 70s logos and typefaces that you uploaded to your account are making me freak out! (With joy, duh.) Some highlights:
I probs don’t need to tell anyone that the National Cherry Blossom Festival starts tomorrow. (Is March seriously, like, over? Jesus!) However, feel free to ignore the schedule that the Man has imposed on these trees. They’ve already started blooming, and they’re all over the city. Save yourself the hassle of the Metro (sure to [...]
Do I only love this because it’s a vintage knock-off? Do I love or hate the idea of vintage knock-offs? Why does buying at American Apparel cause all sorts of moral quandries? pic from AA site
You’re the cutest little Edie Laura Courtney Beale Ingalls Love Wilder I e’er did see.
Our buddies at Yellow Fever are spinning a reggae set at 18th st Lounge tonight from 10pm on….everyone knows the weekend starts on Thursday! Get into it if you love a) asianz b) reggae or c) all of the above. pic from their awesome myspace
Looking to do some hip-swiveling this weekend? If so, I suggest that you attend Friday’s Soiree Disco at Chroma. It will be, in the words of DJ Chris Burns, “very sexy.” Dress how he describesthe club: “proper with lazers.” Capiche? Please note the classic acrylic nails that the model is sporting! You must RSVP for [...]
Ugh–getting out of bed in the morning. What a horrendous activity. It’s become slightly less harrowing now that the weather is lightening up, but for me, it will always be a challenge–which I why I like to give myself little things to look forward to in the morning, like Intelligenstia coffee (available at Sticky Fingers), [...]
Zoe Strauss makes the best pictures. I could not wait to post this item because I am so obsessed with her poetic and razor-sharp images. One of my favorite pictures; the first one of hers that I ever saw. I am pretty sure this woman is dead now. You can see her and ten other [...]
Michael Haneke’s new film “Funny Games” has been getting a lot of attention since it came out–and rightfully so. Dude rules at making movies. But don’t let the hullaballoo surrounding this release distract from his excellent past work–which, lucky for us DC folks, has been playing at the Goethe Institute for the past month! Unlucky [...]
Welcome Emily, our newest blog poster extraodinaire! (She also happens to accomplish amazing outfits with vintage pieces and does not scoff at the Olsens’ fashion sensibilities). See post below re: the sage Sartorialist.
In honor of the Sartorialist’s show at the Adamson Gallery, I am going to post some of my favorite (seasonally appropriate) Sartorialist shots. The show ends April 26th. Go!
If it hasn’t been made apparent yet, I love them for all their coldness and quirkiness. Lykke Li has stolen my heart with her bun and beautiful song. Is there too much music on this blog lately? It’s because all my records are still packed after moving and I have to troll the internet for [...]
I saw you at the bodega last night! I am pretty sure you were buying food. Good for you!
Plan it now.Thursday: DJ Name Names (Ian Svenonius) “Bohemian Groove” at Bourbon Ian is part of a new line-up of DJ’s every Thursday at Bourbon. Expect great tunes to get D.C. dancing again.
Is mono-chromatic uniforms in shades of gray/grey with a heavy militaristic vibe, while we do the bidding of the robots that control us. Thanks for getting us a bit closer, Santi. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9JI0GXkARQ]
Yes, yes, we know ethnic prints are in, so let’s talk about the best way to incorporate them chicly, without looking like a peace corps kid gone overboard. Spring scarves are a great way to brighten an outfit and make you feel like the sun. You can get gorgeous woven ones, dripping with color, from [...]
pic from their myspace Glass Candy have left the Shattered Theater, and its post-punk guitars, and re-vamped themselves as disco divas. Their new tracks are totally awesome–not to mention their stylin’ update to disco fashion. Somebody book them at Garutachi!
Because you should buy these from me:
Hand-numbered clothes? Limited production with the environment in mind? Yes, please! Jesse Kamm produces only 50 garments of each of her design and preaches quality over quantity. pic by abbey druckere
Did you miss this amazing and touching exhibit of photographs at the National Portrait Gallery? It’s alright, the Smithsonian put it up online too, so you can browse at your leisure. The pics are gorgeous and after seeing them, I immediately went home to google a lot of the subjects that I didn’t recognize. Don’t [...]
Ok, so I would never wear anything that was all-over print designer logos. And I am pretty sure I won’t ever buy a bag for thousands of dollars because Nicole Richie did–I don’t need her to think I am cool. But I do want a beautiful, unique, well-made bag to house all the shit i [...]
Sorry for the absence, but I’m back now. I still love Listopad and you should too!
