Fashion Agenda: Beauty on a Budget, Suit Appointments With Armani
Your guide to the week’s most fashionable events.
Fashion Benefit at the Huxley
Fairfax’s First Impressions salon hosts a benefit this week for local cancer patient Lyla Juarez. Featuring a fashion show with designs from local labels such as Erika Schreiber and a silent auction, all proceeds from the event will be donated to the family in need. Tickets ($45 for general admission or $75 for VIP, which gets you a beauty swag bag) are available online.
7:30 Thursday. 1730 M St., NW. Update: this event has been canceled by the host.
Money & Manicures at Nival Salon
Keeping up with regular manicures, spa treatments, haircuts, and the like gets expensive, especially in Washington. To help, financial coach Dominique Broadway will be at Nival Salon & Spa for her first-ever Beauty on a Budget talk, in which she’ll teach you how to maintain your beauty routine with limited cash. A $25 ticket gets you access to the event, a mini manicure, raffle tickets, and refreshments. Thursday 6 to 8. 5481 Wisconsin Ave., Chevy Chase.
Made-to-Measure Suits at Saks
Call or stop by the men’s floor at Saks Tysons this week to make an appointment with a suiting specialist from Canali, Armani Collezioni, or Ike Behar. Receive expert tailoring advice and get measured for a new suit from one of the high-end labels. Saturday noon to 5. 2051 International Dr., First Floor, McLean.
Sip & Swap at Wonderland Ballroom
Eco-conscious duo Luri & Wilma host their second Sew, Stitch, Save clothing swap of the year over cocktails and light brunch, this time at Columbia Heights’ Wonderland Ballroom. Unlike the first swap, this event is free, but an online RSVP and five garments to trade are required for entry. Leave the accessories at home—a separate swap for handbags, jewelry, and the like is in the works for a later date. Sunday 1 to 3. 1101 Kenyon St., NW.
