    UPDATE: Heading out for some weekend shopping? Take a cruise through this local lady's closet for some serious wardrobe inspiration. This story was originally published on August 30.

    To say we're fond of Thievery Corporation and the group's lead singer, LouLou Ghelichkhani, is putting it mildly. ESL Music has been a player in the D.C.'s nightlife and entertainment scenes for as long as we can remember, from the late-night institution that is Eighteenth Street Lounge to its body of musical work that could soundtrack our parties for life.

    And vocalist LouLou is a lyrical muse if ever we've seen one—her style swings between rock-'n'-roll badass (complete with face paint) when she's on stage to well-traveled bohemian artiste when she's at home in her Bloomingdale digs. With roots in Paris and Iran, the multi-talented singer has one of the coolest wardrobes around, stocked with vintage gowns, towering platforms, and jewelry sourced from some truly rad under-the-radar designers.

    We caught up with LouLou right after she returned from a sold-out Thievery show at Colorado's Red Rocks, and got the skinny on her life as a recording artist, her favorite D.C. hangouts, and where she gets those sick statement pieces. Click through to get a firsthand look at some seriously awesome style.

They are equally important, but we tend to place greater value on the latter because, well, they'll never go out of style. While you probably have many of these in your arsenal already — the LBD, the pumps, and the read
