Weekend Buzz: Trunk Shows, PJ Parties, & Wide-Leg Love



1
In our opinion, it's never too early to start planning the perfect weekend, so mark your calendar for next Saturday. Women's clothing line By SMITH will host a trunk show in Kalorama Heights, where you can stock up on rich patterned pieces and luxe Thai silk confections. (By SMITH Collection)

We're crazy about booties over here at R29, but we'll admit they're not always the most practical shoe — hence our lust for these utilitarian gems that are equal parts rugged and chic. (The Daybook)

Cupcakes have had their day in the sun for, well, a while now, so we think it's time for them to step aside and make room for the new gotta-have-it sweet trend: The doughnut. Get your fill of all things cake, cruller, and more at next weekend's DC Donut Fest, where you can munch on the best fried treats from all over the District. Plus, the (brunch) cocktails will be flowing. (DC Donut Fest)

Forget the fancy Oscar parties — why not spend the night in your PJs? Hit up the awesome pajama party hosted by DC Shorts, where you'll be able to watch the show on a two-story HD screen while you enjoy snacks and soda creations from Buffalo & Bergen's Gina Chersevani. And, remember: Snuggies encouraged. (DC Shorts)

We love the idea of wide-leg pants, but they can be a little tricky to pull off. Luckily, our fair city is home to tons of trailblazing style bloggers, and this gorgeous outfit has us totally rethinking our skinny-leg-only mantra. (Skinny Hipster)
