Alright ladies, no point in denying it. Last September we reported that DC ranks first in wine consumption, so we know we’ll see more than a few of you at the two major wine events going down this weekend: the buzzy, young professional-friendly Wine Riot at DAR ($50, tickets available at website), and the waterfront Wine and Food Festival at National Harbor ($40 and up, tickets available on location). In anticipation for this weekend’s festivities (is it Saturday yet?), we whipped up a few outfits in our favorite shades of vino. So go forth, sip, look stylish, and don’t feel too guilty about it—we hear red wine can prevent fat formation.
