Weekly rundown of DC fashion events+links to love on style blogs+other inspirational stuff we think you may enjoy. Cool? Cool. Have an event coming up/something you find worthy of mention? Let me know in the comments sections, or find me on Twitter @mel_jennie.
July 31st: Facon Magazine’s monthly Fashion and Style Network Happy Hour is at the Jin Lounge.
Also this Thursday: the boutiques in Old Town Alexandria are “up late.” Head over and take advantage of extended store hours.
August 3rd: Fashion and Wellness Expo 2014 will feature a fashion show, wellness segment, networking opportunities, live music, makeup giveaways, body painting, local vendor shopping, and more.
INSPIRATIONAL LINKS, ETC.
Lucky: Cruelty-free ways to wear animals
Glamour: One NYC shoe designer is advertising shoes with graffiti. Neat.
Vogue: I wore a white sweater the other day and spilled coffee all over it. If you’re more graceful than me (you are), try an all-white summer look inspired by these celebs:
Elle: Dress like a Draper
Refinery29: Loose bottoms and bold prints are better solutions for hiding sweat than covering your body in antiperspirant.
WhoWhatWear: A bunch of easy outfits to copy and where to get the pieces
Have a fabulous week!
