Movers & Shoppers
District style: D.C. style blogger Morgan Hungerford (who we profiled last year) launched her newest web project on Monday—the online quarterly fashion publication Panda Head Magazine. Check it out for fantastic style features based around the emerging D.C. fashion scene.
Love at first scent: We're completely smitten with Indulge, a new Dupont Circle shop specializing in an amazing range of designer candles, which is quickly becoming our go-to spot for great gifts, fresh scents and more.
Perfectly prep-tastic: If whale-emblazoned shorts are for you (ironically or not), here's good news: the New England prep-heavy clothier Vineyard Vines has finally arrived in Georgetown, and it's fully stocked with all kinds of Madras-related goodness.
Turn to the left: U Street's stylish shopping destinations continue to creep eastward with the recent opening of upscale boutique Profile (at 11th Street). Look for edgy-chic labels like Corey Lynn Calter and John Varvatos for Converse in a stylish townhouse location.
