In case you missed us last time, we feature the news, events, people, and stores that are putting STYLE back into this buttoned-up city. Also, check out our 2016 Style Round Up for all the best in D.C. style from the most stylish people in town.
Tunes We’re Jamming To This Week
I can’t get this song out of my head. The intro sounds like those weird birds from that Pixar short, and I love it. I’ve been running around singing “COUNT ON ME WHEN YOU CAN’T STOP THE TEARS FROM FALLING DOWN EEE EEEE EEEE EEEE” and no one’s stopped me yet so…
Saturday 2/25 + Sunday 2/26: Made in the USA clothing brand Domestic Clothing Co. is hosting a pop up shop at Union Market’s Lab 1270 this weekend. Featuring new clothes, items you can’t get online, as well as live music and “tailor-made tips” by a guy named Everett (so you know he’s legit). More information here. 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
There’s a new MICROBLADING salon on Florida Ave. If you’re into the sort of thing…
Dollistic: 1409 Florida Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20009
We mostly love Madewell, there’s a new Madewell on 14th St (which is 100% closer to the NEW BYT OFFICE and therefore amazing), bye bye paycheck, hello all denim everything.
Madewell 1919 14th Street, Northwest Washington DC
New York Fashion Week happened, and according to Page Six, some guy pretended to be Sisqo and got invited to all the FROWS and parties and WAS ONLY STOPPED when he tried to get on someone’s private jet, and his passport proved that he was not, in fact, the famed singer of The Thong Song. The only advice I can glean from this is always be yourself, unless you can pretend to be Sisqo, in which case be Sisqo so you can have the MOST fun at NYFW.
By the time you read this London Fashion Week for AW17 will be over, but the only show you NEED to care about is Sophia Webster. Check out more photos from possibly the COOLEST (pun intended.. you’ll understand) fashion show I’ve seen in a hot second.
IN OTHER FASHION NEWS People Magazine published this article about how to pronounce designer’s names. I am embarrassed at how many I’ve been pronouncing wrong this whole time (see: Vetements: VET-MOHN). Check out the full article here
And now for this week’s feature:

From the BYT Archives
So one thing about Brightest Young Things, we’ve been pretty involved in all things STYLE since the website began more than 10 years go. Each week I’ll go through and highlight something cool from the STYLE ARCHIVES.
This week: A Madewell Fall
Original Run Date: November 18th, 2010
The run-down: BYT was sent a box of Madewell clothes prior to the new store opening in Georgetown, so NATURALLY they decided to invite some cool DC ladies over for a night of photoshoots, clothes and St. Germain cocktails. Read it here.
And that’s it for this week! Stay stylish D.C.!
