Fashion in Washington


Black Halo dress and Janis Savitt jewelry from my client, Terra boutique.


It was great running into stylist, Pamela Burns at last week’s Innocents at Risk fundraiser. She is writing a fun new blog about fashion in Washington that gives the do’s and don’t that Glamour magazine made famous. Watch out because she is out and about taking photos of do’s AND don’ts. We have FBI, CIA, Secret Service, and now DC has Fashion Police. The good news is that she will crop your head out of the photo, if you’re a don’t. Fortunately, she caught me on a good day, and I was a “Do”. Pamela is also working for The Georgetowner magazine, and was very sweet to include me in their next issue and her Fashion Around The Mall blog post today on fashion in Washington, DC.

Speaking of fashion in Washington, well it may have officially arrived in the Nation’s capital today. Vogue magazine came to town, and hosted “Evenings in Vogue” tonight at Oya restaurant & lounge, which is one of my favorite spots in the city — such great food and beautiful atmosphere.

Vogue has been hosting these events in cities around the country, and I think I speak for all Washington fashionistas when I say we were thrilled to welcome Vogue to the Nation’s capital and to have their attention! As much as they were hosting us, I think we were all celebrating their arrival in Washington. Some other members of The Vogue 100 were there such as event  hostess, Michelle Fenty, although some like my friend Katie Rost were sadly unable to attend. I was hoping that Desiree Rogers would stop by, but I didn’t see her. Mayor Adrian Fenty arrived just as I was leaving, but it was great to see him.

As much as Washington women are jaded when it comes to Presidential motorcades or seeing a politician around town, I think we all get giddy with excitement at the thought of the high fashion and glamour synonymous with Vogue magazine. I hope that they will come back again soon! It was such a treat to have something like this in the District. I hope that they will come back again soon! We need them here! We crave their raw glamour and sophistication! I will have photos from tonight for you all soon!
