Dar Be Dar is a luxury swimwear line and this event showcased the <a href="http://darbedar.net/collections/resort-2014"><u>2014/2015 resort collection</u></a>. We enjoyed signature drinks, hors d’oeuvres, a pop-up shop and great music (the <a href="http://www.eastcoastentertainment.com/artist/cyrus-reel"><u>electric cellist</u></a> was a fantastic touch). Proceeds from the show benefited Autism Speaks. I hope you enjoy these images from the evening!<br /><br /><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ZbsG0uyqcDs/VC3pLusXLnI/AAAAAAAAG10/xeSSL6n4mqs/s1600/DSC_0092.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ZbsG0uyqcDs/VC3pLusXLnI/AAAAAAAAG10/xeSSL6n4mqs/s1600/DSC_0092.jpg" height="424" width="640" /></a><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-861kDCEij5w/VC3pPt7lrxI/AAAAAAAAG2E/BXSSqV1zHoU/s1600/DSC_0117.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-861kDCEij5w/VC3pPt7lrxI/AAAAAAAAG2E/BXSSqV1zHoU/s1600/DSC_0117.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-iPSR_ZADbzI/VC3pUPEx3XI/AAAAAAAAG2M/8lpPj9jcR88/s1600/DSC_0122.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-iPSR_ZADbzI/VC3pUPEx3XI/AAAAAAAAG2M/8lpPj9jcR88/s1600/DSC_0122.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EzHBCcyIm-U/VC3prU8b6DI/AAAAAAAAG28/NiwYIsTKEE8/s1600/DSC_0210.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EzHBCcyIm-U/VC3prU8b6DI/AAAAAAAAG28/NiwYIsTKEE8/s1600/DSC_0210.jpg" height="400" width="266" /></a><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Zb06aPV3jok/VC3pXlYOrjI/AAAAAAAAG2U/JEPnkeLZ8K8/s1600/DSC_0143.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Zb06aPV3jok/VC3pXlYOrjI/AAAAAAAAG2U/JEPnkeLZ8K8/s1600/DSC_0143.jpg" height="400" width="265" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-k-POQe1Lt_4/VC3pfpTCqCI/AAAAAAAAG2s/uMz292xrG7M/s1600/DSC_0173.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-k-POQe1Lt_4/VC3pfpTCqCI/AAAAAAAAG2s/uMz292xrG7M/s1600/DSC_0173.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ijSXXds-9a0/VC3pcxm3rTI/AAAAAAAAG2k/ccTYCgQvcE4/s1600/DSC_0176.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ijSXXds-9a0/VC3pcxm3rTI/AAAAAAAAG2k/ccTYCgQvcE4/s1600/DSC_0176.jpg" height="424" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WNSHrJT0gso/VC3pjT9DNQI/AAAAAAAAG20/mf17uq-dm9o/s1600/DSC_0183.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WNSHrJT0gso/VC3pjT9DNQI/AAAAAAAAG20/mf17uq-dm9o/s1600/DSC_0183.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></a><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-CYxi_zGbCKI/VC3p-NAtBSI/AAAAAAAAG3U/B4w5g6eZc9g/s1600/DSC_0256.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-CYxi_zGbCKI/VC3p-NAtBSI/AAAAAAAAG3U/B4w5g6eZc9g/s1600/DSC_0256.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div>Ashley Lettichhttps://plus.google.com/102442042532714383945noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3148247538723672671.post-78226432462273859572014-10-02T06:00:00.000-04:002014-10-02T06:00:09.333-04:00The Weekend Agenda | October 3-5, 2014<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.behance.net/gallery/Welcome-to-the-Weekend/10664339"><img alt="https://www.behance.net/gallery/Welcome-to-the-Weekend/10664339" border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-wBbVzWkwGBE/VCR4Ka11A7I/AAAAAAAAG0M/pTz3UHbSSLw/s1600/b8ce71172161138d0fa3ba5e11dad096.jpg" height="320" width="320" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Image via <a href="https://www.behance.net/danielpalacios"><u>Daniel Palacios</u></a>.</span></div><br /><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: inherit;">Looking for something to do this weekend in the DMV?

When I think 'mule', I think clunky, 90s styles - but 2014's mules are much more polished and sleek. Enter this pair from <a href="http://bit.ly/1vr6DLF"><u>Gianvito Rossi</u></a>. They're gorgeous, but at $677, a little unattainable for most of us.

Sidenote for my DMV fashion blogger friends... this would make a fabulous backdrop for outfit posts!<br /><br />Read more <a href="http://www.crystalcity.org/artful/art-walls/crystal-wynwood-mural"><u>here</u></a>.<br /><br /><div style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Crystal Wynwood Mural" height="2288" src="https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3891/14799823446_42c8f244ef_o.jpg" width="631" /></div>Ashley Lettichhttps://plus.google.com/102442042532714383945noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3148247538723672671.post-416538934802613622014-07-14T16:33:00.000-04:002014-07-14T16:33:00.323-04:00Bethesda Row Summer Sidewalk Sale (July 18-20, 2014)Bethesda Row is always a fun place to check out - but this weekend, it's about to get better!
