For those on the east coast, I know you are probably pretty well versed in this hurricane Sandy business. Here in the DC area, it’s supposed to hit land any minute now. Everyone please be safe!! I hope our power doesn’t go out (fingers crossed) , in the case that it does…see yall when power’s back.
Washington DC is known for lots of things, but fashion it is not. DC is the nation’s capital, and government seat, and so of course it is definitely “suit city”. Suits are usually considered to be conservative wear, but I think a lot of people would be surprised to hear that DC is a very liberal town. And even though we’re not a NYC or even an LA, we do love to shop. DC happens to contain one of the country’s richest streets, Wisconsin Avenue. Wisconsin Ave starts in Georgetown, which houses everything from the Betsey Johnson store to Lacoste. Going towards Maryland, Wisconsin Ave crosses into Chevy Chase, and Chevy Chase is the town that houses the coveted Mazza Gallerie. There’s a Neiman’s, a Bloomies, a Jimmy Choo, a LV, a Gucci, and the list goes on! I love when I have the opportunity (and frankly a couple of extra dollars) to be able to scamper over to Mazza Gallerie.
My love and I had a date day for the National Zoo, in DC yesterday. It was lots of fun looking at all the animals and looots of walking! (my calves are feeling it today!) Enjoy a few pictures.
