You two are adorable—please tell us we’re not the first to notice.
Trey: “My only other fashion accolade was getting “best dressed” in high school, but that was because I decided to wear a tie every day for over a year for absolutely no reason. It was after I got a ton of them from my grandpa, and I have a pretty good collection: striped, paisley, holiday—you name it.”
Any thoughts on how your better half dresses?
Donna: “I like that he doesn’t stress at all about what he wears. He just knows exactly what he likes and what works for him, and he sticks to it.”
Trey: “She wears a lot of cool, colorful floral prints, bracelets, and dangling necklaces and a lot of her mom’s and grandma’s dresses. So I guess that’s vintage. And motherly.”
What’s the best dinner date in DC?
Trey: “Harmony Cafe (3287 M St., NW) in Georgetown. Great, cheap pan-Asian food. There’s a vegetarian version of all the non-vegetarian dishes. And the service is an incredible one-woman show. Nicest woman alive. I also used to joke about taking Donna to Citronelle, especially since the Obamas went there. It’s a bit pricey, but we’re accepting donations if any readers feel so compelled.”
It’s always interesting to see how a couple’s commonalities play out in their wardrobe choices. Donna and Trey have an admirable appreciation of the people and places that have shaped their lives, and it’s fantastic to see them both carry those experiences in their clothing. We also like that they sweetly complement each other without matching—their Southern-infused vintage stands out without shouting in Georgetown, a neighborhood often dominated by J. Crew ensembles.
