    September is still two days away, but we've officially got fall on the brain — and the buzz around next Thursday's Fashion's Night Out events is only boosting our anticipation for the upcoming season. We've got a full roundup of all things FNO coming down the pipeline, but we wanted to give you a little sneak peek at what is, in our book, the must-visit event of the night: the Hu's Wear and Hu's Shoes sales (hosted by your very own D.C. editor!).

    Amazing items from the store's spring '12 and fall '11 inventory are marked down by 80% — that's right, 80%. Think Lanvin, Balenciaga, The Row, Isabel Marant, all insanely discounted — it's going to be a literal madhouse, but we can guarantee you it will be worth it. We stopped in yesterday to curate a rack of our favorite pieces that are oh-so-perfect for D.C. ladies (and, ahem, bought a few things for ourselves) — click through for the highlights from both stores.

    And, if you're just dying to get in first, you can score a $45 VIP ticket to shop the sale from 5 to 7 p.m. from Gilt City.

    When: Thursday, September 6, from 5-9 p.m.
    Where: Hu's Wear, 2906 M Street NW, 202-342-2020; Hu's Shoes, 3005 M Street NW, 202-342-0202.

Chunky knits! Statement coats! Knee-high boots! Meanwhile, in sunny Los Angeles, "winter" is more like a slightly cooler extension read


29 Pics From Our Insane Holiday Bazaar

Well, that was insanely fun! Tinseltown, R29's annual holiday pop-up bazaar, was in full swing over one all-too-brief weekend — so much so that we're still not over it. From December 13 to 14, we teamed up with the incomparable design mavens at e-zine Sight Unseen to curate up-and-coming brands and take over Openhouse, read
