Nashville Scenes

One of my favorite discoveries in Nashville was the denim shop (also a design studio/production space) Imogene + Willie. It’s in a converted auto body shop and has the rustic-meets-luxe look that I find myself totally into these days. So much fun to be walking by and stumble on this idyllic creative scene – old boots lined up on aged wooden benches, paper patterns and old flour sacks hanging like slabs of meat from the rafters, the owners’ dog sitting in the open doorway. When we popped in, they were working on a small run of waistcoats for RRL, Ralph Lauren’s line of limited-edition pieces for men.

The-Inside-Source

eBay recently launched a new style/culture/shopping Web site (check out the NYT article here) – The Inside Source – the idea being a fun editorial online mag that sources the cool stuff on eBay so you don’t have to. I’m proud to have represented Washington through a street-style set.

I teamed up with McLean over at Deacon Does DC, who shared 10 great picks for holiday shopping and fun in the District (can’t wait to check out #8!).

It’s all a part of eBay’s Mobile Boutique Tour, taking place TODAY AND TOMORROW inside Union Station, offering a unique virtual shopping experience for everything you’ll be looking to buy this holiday season – for yourself or for others on your list. Shopping stations will showcase the most coveted items on eBay, so you can find top items purchase right on the spot. I only recently began shopping on eBay – and it’s very rapidly becoming a problem – so I’m loving the site, chock-full of great fashiony articles, like this one on pairing tough and feminine items, and especially this piece on ideas for an “antiquarian Thanksgiving” through the words of one of my very favorite bloggers, Hollister Hovey.

Lost Boys Fall Winter  09

Lost Boys Fall Winter  09

Lost Boys owner Kelly Muccio knows great clothes, and she clearly knows what men will look great in them – namely, the droves of Washington men who shop there – and now, the (very attractive and ahem, agile) men of our hometown soccer team, DC United. Muccio gathered the team, some of the best new clothes of the season, and shot them for the store’s fall lookbook – being unveiled tonight, in just a few short hours, at the Georgetown shop. The details on the party: Rodney (top – love this look) and Devon (love the fingerless gloves! not so sure about the cargos, but he had me at the lumberjack shirt) will be there with the team starting at 8, and then the crew heads over to the Degrees Bar at the Ritz, where the boys will guest bartend in style.

Loving these cheeky street-chic tees from homespun line One Vs Many. I’d happily channel my inner Carrie Bradshaw and proudly profess my tempestuous love relationship with my city neighborhood with this tee.
