Hey there! Welcome to the fifth edition of District StyleFile. In case you missed us last time, each week we’ll be featuring the news, events, people, and stores that are putting STYLE back into this buttoned-up city.

Fashion News

We checked out the International Spy Museum’s Stealth Eye for the Spy (a title which I believe is supposed to invoke a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy reference, way to keep things relevant and timely guys!) It was supposed to be about the fashion of espionage, instead it was about strong martinis.

There is a FENDI pop-up shop in Georgetown TODAY November 11th (11 a.m. – 6 p.m.). We’ll let you make your own Kreayshawn joke.

In invitations we all wish we had gotten news: There was an Oscar De La Renta discussion and fashion event at the Freer|Sackler Gallery with Andre Leon Talley. #FOMO

Coming to Tyson’s from the friendly (we assume) folks at Ann Taylor LOFT is their new concept: Lou & Grey. I wonder if Hipster Business Name Generator will sue for copyright infringement.

Alexander Wang is collaborating with It Boy of the moment The Weeknd (can he do anything wrong?). Let us hope it turns out better than Wang’s last collaboration.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show taped last night, since you know, it’s that time of the year when we pretend that we are all only three kale chips away from being Victoria’s Secret models.

Wear it Washington: The Sample SaleDock 5 at Union Market – December 13 – $30 / $50 VIP
This event seems fairly worthwhile because it is essentially the Washingtonian cleaning out their closet and having a yard sale. Except classier and less negotiating with the strange people who show up in your front yard.

Cool D.C. Fashion Instagrammer of the Week: James Majewski
When you think men’s fashion in D.C., does the vision of a politician in a tailored suit swim to the forefront of your brain? Me too. Fortunately, men like James Majewski, as well as stores like Hugh and Crye are working to change that. This GQ Insider’s feed will instantly make you crave a cup of hot cocoa in the woods somewhere while you watch your  sexy bearded lumberjack boyfriend chop wood for your cozy mountain cabin. Or something.

Store of the Week: S3 Active
I both love and hate the “atheleisure wear” trend. On one hand, it’s nice that working out has gotten slightly more fashionable. On the other hand, I think we all now feel a slight twinge of not being stylish enough when we show up to morning yoga wearing a Greene Turtle St. Patty’s Day shirt and old cheerleading spandex (I have an excuse, it was laundry day!). Another problem? I’m pretty sure everyone at the 6am yoga sculpt has the exact same pair of Lululemon leggings. This is where the just-opened, S3 Active comes in. Hard to find brands like Michi and Koral Activewear line the racks at the Union Market stall. Prices are about what you’d expect to find at yoga clothing stores, but it seems worth the splurge.

And you are now all caught up on the D.C. fashion scene! Until next week…
