Wednesday, July 23: Raise your bubbly! Muleh hosts a trunk show for local jewelry designer Paula Mendoza from 6-9pm, complete with snacks and champagne. We're seriously in love with the Colombian-born designer's strikingly chic pieces in rich gold—and while you're there, be sure to check out the store's impressively tempting sales racks as well.
When you get home, don't forget to catch Project Runway at 9pm on Bravo! We recapped last week over here and will be back Thursday morning with another play-by-play. Personally, we just can't wait to see why drives Tim Gunn to call out, "Holla at your boy!"
Thursday, July 24: The word of the night is Barney's! The store's Georgetown Co-op outpost is the site of the kick-off for Fashion Fights Poverty's "Dress Responsibly With Style" event, which runs from 6-8pm. Get a peek at Barney's new fall eco-designs while enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
Oh, but that's not all. Down the road at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Barney's New York Creative Director Simon Doonan will be holding court with a talk and book signing startng at 7:30pm. We love Doonan's appreciation of all things wacky—his latest book is titled Eccentric Glamour: Creating an Insanely More Fabulous You"—and can't wait to hear what personal style advice he doles out.
Saturday, July 26: Traveling vintage shop Listopad is teaming up with Red Onion Records and Books in Adams Morgan for a big sidewalk sale. Check out music, books, and plenty of retro finds at the corner of 18th and T streets NW from 12-4.
Also on Saturday, super-chic local online store Lily-Lily!, along with local lines Manu and Yinibini, will host a super-sale at the brand-new Huron Condos from 1-9pm. They'll be taking over the second floor with a cocktail suite and discounts up to 40 percent. Fab!
Monday, July 28: Downtown eco-spa Natural Body was just awarded for their environmentally friendly design, and they're throwing themselves a party from 4:30-7:30pm at their 24th and L location. There will be treatment sampling, organic food and drinks, and swag bags for the first 75 attendees. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
