29 Feb

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On February 28 Chanel at Saks Fifth Avenue Chevy Chase hosted a trunk show, presenting new spring fashions straight from the runway, and new sample bags and shoes. Models dressed in exquisite garments with 5-number price tags, walked around  to please the eyes of very few. Champagne and sweets were provided to spice up your shopping (or spectating) experience.

Enjoy some pictures.

Neiman Marcus Spring Preview

27 Feb

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Neiman Marcus of Tysons Galleria presented spring preview showcase on February 22. Guests first enjoyed refreshments and finger foods in NM cafe, and then proceeded to a fashion show.

We celebrate prints  – bolds or demures, graphics or florals; and color – pink is greeted back, neons are on! What appeared to me most and what I always loved – print jackets! Oh, and of course, “yellow is the new neutral”! Sunny, bright, uplifting color is very well appreciated this season. Hurray! Who thought, but sport is truly fashionable now – it surfaces even on dresses, which makes them more accessible and multipurposed.

Enjoy the pictures with commentaries, hope you will find handy information for you. And, let’s have fashion fun this spring (which starts whatever you decide, even if it’s freezing February!)

Gilt City’s warehouse/closet revealed

14 Feb

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Friday the 10th Gilt City DC gave access to its treasured warehouse to the VIP/press, with following sale event on Saturday for the public. Long View gallery was buzzing and babbling with excitement of privileged shoppers, digging through goods and sipping on the campaign. Rivers of designers garments, shoes, accessories and whatnot were filtered by DC fashionistas, leaving messy piles behind like 3 year-olds on Halloween playdate. Yours truly attended the first part and it was scary to imagine what has actually happened on Saturday night with about 1000 people RSVPd for the event.

Enjoy some pics which I could not help but treat in randomly vintage-y style. Oh and by the way those granola bars were beyond amazing. What was the brand again? Were eaten ruthlessly.

Tons and tons of stuff! I wonder if there is anything left now?

Excitment sprinkling
