DC Cold Weather Style

DC Cold Weather Style

One thing is for certain: DC is freezing cold these days. Whether you are holed up in a roasty-toasty apartment or still trying to make your way back to the District after the holidays, you will most certainly need warm clothing throughout the next few weeks. These clothing options are fashionable, warm, and can be found in local DC boutiques. (Or, if you don't want to venture outside, these boutiques are also online!) 

Attend the Red Carpet Premiere of Collide

Attend the Red Carpet Premiere of Collide

Collide, the new motion picture from DMV filmmaker Master June Daguiso, will premiere this Sunday at the Burke Theater. Collide is the latest action film from the Virginia resident and martial arts expert, who also stars. The movie tells the story of three criminals from different cultures whose paths inexorably cross in the U.S. Although an indie film, Collide has been three years in the making and was partially shot on location in El Salvador.

Collide will have its red carpet premiere this Sunday December 19 with showings at 11AM and 2PM. As of this writing, the 11AM showing is nearly sold out. Tickets are $15, but contact me for info on how to get in for half price.

Awesomely Bad Holiday Sweaters

Awesomely Bad Holiday Sweaters

The golden years of horrible holiday sweaters may be behind us. The 1980's were an excellent decade for tacky Christmas wear. Even in the 90's everyone and their mother (and grandmother) started sporting a holiday sweater the day after Thanksgiving - and it was considered cool. Alas, the holiday sweater has been relegated to hipsters and / or the ironic Holiday Sweater Party. 

As a fashion consultant I'm very thankful that stores are carrying fewer Christmas cardigans each year. But, there is a part of me that is quite nostalgic for the joy a really bad sweater can bring. Thus, I recently searched for an awful sweater contender that is a) currently on the market b) displays the true spirit of the holidays in sweater form.

Oooh, did I hit gold.
