Set the Office Ablaze(r)

Fun colors, great quality, interesting shapes. Lately it has been almost impossible for us to find all three of these attributes in one great suit. That is until our friend Liza Collis invited us to check out the new showroom she was managing in the Shaw neighborhood of DC. We walked in the doors of Argent and immediately knew this would become a go-to for us and our clients. . . Argent was founded in 2016 by a tech employee, Sali Christeson, and a former designer at J.Crew and Tory Burch, Eleanor Turner. They saw a gap in the current workwear …

Working Women of DC Rejoice, MM.LaFleur is Here

. Do you remember when I went to the MM.LaFleur pop-up shop at the Jefferson Hotel?  Exactly a year ago, I set up an appointment to try on some of my favorite offerings from the online shop.

I was at first shocked by the seeming simplicity of Melania’s Inaugural Ball gown, as it wasn’t much of a gown. However, I’ve come to realize how well she was expressing her true …

A Few of Our Favorite Things from One of Our Favorite Stores

Kyle and I have been trying to keep the Virginia boutique, Take 5 Boutique, a stylists’ secret (all DC stylists shop there!), but we can’t hold back from our readers any longer. The clothes are so good, we send them to our clients in New York too. Sakina Iskendar, the owner, has an incredible taste level which she channels into her boutiques at Tyson’s Corner Center and the Mosaic District. She finds designers from Turkey and France (Sakina is from Azerbaijan originally) that you’ve never heard of but make clothes you want at reasonable prices. Let’s just say I did …

Want to Steal my Job?

Did you see my article in the Washington Post Express this week? I have always said it is pretty amazing that I get paid to make women (and some men) feel good about themselves. Apparently the Washington Post agrees and featured me in their Steal this Job column. Thanks again Betsy Fisher for letting us do the photo shoot at your fabulous store!
