Next Thursday at NWMA there is a film screening for “a.k.a. Nikki S. Lee.” Phillips Collection screened this last year and I was bummed I missed it; the word from Kata was it was great. Lee will be there to discuss the film. Following this screening, there is another for “Before the Summer Passes Away” [...]
Tuesday (tonight): Spaghetti Bros 6-9 pm. Our buddy Gina, a gifted artist, will be performing an installation piece, or maybe we should call it an “artistic party,” in front of Smith Hall on the GW campus. Saturday: Brightest Young Things Re-launch Party 6pm-your lights go out. BYT (as the kids call it) is rejuvenating their [...]
The inspiration behind Listopad Mix #2: Nassau, New Orleans & New York; men hollering at women on the street, deep orange, sweat, the state of the US economy (see “We’ve Had Enough”), and colorful sundresses in the city. Baby Dayliner “The Morning Sun”Sunshine Anderson “Something I Wanna Give You”Foxy “Mademoiselle”Cymande “Bra”Arnie Love & The Lovettes [...]
Robin Givhan. Ever the thoughtful fashion observer.
Ok, I know everyone is probably like: Emily. Stop posting people’s Flickr accounts. Believe me, I want to branch out to other parts of the Internet, but how could I not share user stripper_polaroids with yins? Banish all thoughts of the metaphoric connotations of this username. It’s a collection of 50 polaroids — of strippers! [...]
liebemarlene vintage posted some beautiful early-40s snapshots (from the stern, lush Charles Cushman collection) of some seriously alabaster bathing beauties on Lake Michigan. Here is an excerpt from a excellent essay on Cushman by Indiana University professor Eric Sandweiss. (Please explore the site. The breadth and depth of Cushman’s work — well, read what the [...]
My BFF’s asked me to contribute to this blog, so here I am. I’ll be updating occasionally with some music-related tidbits– a mix here, an mp3 file there, etc. I don’t know if you readers knew this, but the ladies of Listopad are music fiends. Fiona is a virtuoso musician. Cathy has an excellent record [...]
Listopad Spring Patio Party at Marvin this past Saturday: perfect weather, beautiful location. It was a great afternoon for us to see people, hang, and show our Spring collection. It honestly didn’t feel like work at all! Thanks to Chris Burns for dj’ing, everyone who came, friends who always support us, and especially the staff [...]
Sunday. Rainy. Slow. Browsing Flickr. Came across user thombeau59 and his set of gorgeous vintage magazine covers. In other news, we had such unbelievable fun at Marvin on Saturday! Massive, massive thanks to Marvin, Chris, and everyone that came out. Stay tuned for a proper post with more details and sunny pics of our lovely [...]
The lovely Morgan took time out of her busy and stylin’ schedule to ask us a few questions over at BYT….thanks for the love, Morgan!
I have been trolling the web for weeks looking for a better picture of this outfit, but since it occurred pre-paparazzi-infested awards shows, I don’t know if one is going to turn up. The best I could find was this YouTube video. So: here is Diane Keaton accepting an Oscar for Annie Hall in 1978. [...]
Alyson Fox is now available at Jumelle!
The Black Cat has a great lineup this week. Dead Meadow plays Wednesday night and electronic mindfuck Autechre plays on Thursday. (Friday, of course, you’ll be going to bed early, to prepare for Listopad’s champagne-and-vintage-extravaganza on Saturday!)
We’re stoked that Marvin got covered in Sunday Styles today! Good job, dudes! We can’t wait to take over their patio on Saturday…..
I am digging on these lil’ puffy culotte-ish jawns from Greasywaitress Vintage. They’ll go with my summer uniform of huaraches (or maybe Kata’s ballet flats) and shrunken, paper-thin button-downs—that rarest of thrift-store birds. And hoops, of course.
I just love these pic from creatures of comfort
A petite peek into some items we will be offering to all you wonderful DC people at our April 19 event…expect handmade streetwear (!), wonderful colorful accesories and beautifully detailed “ethnic” items. We are in love with all of our stock this season, so it will be hard to part with. We hope you can [...]

Ornament as Art: Avant-Garde Jewelry from the Helen Williams Drutt Collection, an exhibit featuring pieces dating from 1963 to 2006, will be at the Renwick Gallery until July 6th.
Having never experienced it for myself, I cannot vouch for the quality of Rachel Perry‘s skincare line. I can, however, vouch for the appeal of her cosmic, disco-tinted Art Deco aesthetic vibe! Look at these sexy little pots!
Our favorite moral-quandary-inducing retailer is in some hot water. Again! Woody Allen is suing American Apparel.
I normally love APC‘s casual-chic duds, but I’m gonna have to call some bullshit. Evidence: bermuda shorts, silver sack dress and pink J. Crewish shirt.
…But I was at a friend’s house, flipping thru channels when I stumbled upon the Sucker-Free countdown on MTV2, and had to stop because our own Tabi Bonney was kicking everyone’s ass. Shoo, I can’t deny that I’m a fan, but how can you not have DC pride after hearing/watching this: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvDsYUu1HFQ]
We’re very excited to annouce the next Listopad Vintage Cocktail party! This time we’re going all out for the early birds: brunch at Marvin, our favorite new restaurant/bar in DC on April 19, from 12-4pm. Expect champagne, great vintage finds for your spring wardrobe and the sweet disco tunes of our buddy Chris Burns. More [...]
Disco City is on Friday and it will be hot/hott/haute/etc. Max Dunbar is back from the netherworld (San Francisco). Just throw on some tight jeans with your purple boots and drive to Rock and Roll Hotel with your windows down, because it’s going to be in the 60s on Friday.
