“I don’t have tons of time to shop,” says Alyson Seiz, a special-events assistant for the Smithsonian American Art Museum. We spotted Seiz on her way home from work, looking impeccable in a shirt-and-pleated-skirt ensemble from Banana Republic. We can only imagine what she’d look like with more time on her hands. In fact, we’re imagining it right now—and we’re jealous.
Seiz, who describes her style as “trendy enough but trying to be timeless,” is originally from Louisville, Kentucky, and had plenty to share with our Sidewalk Style camera about Washington’s fashion compared with that of her hometown as well as her take on one of the District’s biggest fashion faux pas.
