D.C.'s Coolest Bloggers (& Locals!) Hit Up Our Modern/Vintage Mashup

When we invited all you D.C. Refinery29 fans to a night of styling, shopping, and cocktail sipping at our Modern/Vintage Mashup at the Gap in Georgetown, we were geared up for some serious fun. And, as promised, we seriously delivered: Classic cocktails were served up with a modern twist, your oh-so-chic D.C. editor, Holly Thomas, helped style outfits with vintage accessories and brand-spanking-new Gap pieces, and DJ Neekola spun a few classic sets. If that weren't enough, the hippest local bloggers came out to say hello, while shoppers went in deep for chambray shirts, colorful denim, and end-of-summer neon pieces. A few lucky attendees also scored blazers, blouses, jeans, and totes from the three extra-cute transitional outfits Holly whipped up. So, thanks for making it a brand-new classic, D.C., and be sure to click on the slideshow for some stunning snaps from the evening.
