Episode one of Style in the City, a show that's all about styleand lifestylein and around the Nation's Capitol, first aired this week. And if you have access to Fairfax Public Access Chanel 10, it should be easy enough to catch or DVR (since it's showing more than thirty times this month!).

The show's cast comprises Leesburg resident, Leigh Macdonald, DC's Stefanie Ball, and two Middleburg women, Cindy Bapst and Elizabeth Miller. The show's director, Kristin Rustom, resides in both Middleburg and DC. The show focuses on distinctions between the life in the District and life in nearby Hunt Country, and much of the first episode was filmed on location at Delaplane Cellars in Delaplane, VA.

5 Winter Boots for Men

5 Winter Boots for Men

Like much of the Northeast, DC got hit hard by winter storms yesterday. Bundling up and preparing to go out in the cold is of great importance, especially when it comes to shoes. (Have you slipped on that ice? Ouch! It's brutal!). Here are 5 different winter boot options to get guys through the next part of winter.

1. For the Winter Sports Guy

In what has to be one of the greatest innovations ever for the winter shoe, this Columbia Bugathermo Boot is heated. Yup, it contains a heating system with rechargeable batteries. It's also waterproof and has a temperature display on the exterior of the boot.

2. For the Urban Cowboy

This X-Lace Boot by John Varvatos has a rough and tumble feel. It's currently on sale at Neiman Marcus for $359, down from its original $789 price tag.

3. For the Guy Who Likes to Mix it Up

Some of the Best, Affordable Art in Washington

Some of the Best, Affordable Art in Washington

Nestled in the back of The Art League Gallery is a small gallery that is absolutely stuffed with artwork. Some people think this is the clearance room, or the room that contains artwork that is not yet worthy of primetime wall space. This is hardly the case. The Bin Gallery (named for all the bins of artwork the room contains) is home to some of the area’s most talented artists and some of the most affordable artwork in the region.

To exhibit in the Bin Gallery, an Art League artist must be accepted into three juried exhibitions within the League’s calendar year. Out of the 1,000 member artists, 275 are currently “Bin” members. These are some of the most proficient artists in the Gallery. The works in this gallery are small, and therefore, more affordable. Framed and unframed works are featured, as well as small sculptures. The works on the wall rotate monthly, so there is always something new to see.
