Last night, we got to introduce Of Mercer, the amazingly chic work-wear brand, to the D.C. scene. We (and a bevy of stylish attendees) spent the evening at Urban Chic in Georgetown, shopping the online-only collection in person. From perfectly structured dresses to cool, modern jewelry and belts, these duds are tailor-made for Washington's professional set.
In addition to enjoying tasty food and drinks, guests got to try out a lip-gloss bar by Nival Salon — we saw so many gorgeous pouts during the night! Among the attendees were some of the DMV's chicest bloggers: E of District of Chic, Meaghan of District Sparkle, Cheralee of Miss Lyle Style, Tammy of A Loyal Love, Lindsay of 2nd & L, and Alina of The Hyperbalist.
If you couldn't make it last night, don’t fret: You still have two more opportunities to check out Of Mercer in person. Tonight and tomorrow, the brand will make appearances at the Capitol Hill Hotel and the AKA White House, respectively. If you've already got plans, you can always shop the collection online from the comfort of your couch.
