    There's no better way to explore a city than with the help of a sartorially savvy, food-loving gal pal by your side — especially when that friend happens to know every cool spot in town. Such is the case with Marissa Schneider, Gilt City's D.C. ambassador and a stylish girl-about-town, if ever there were such a thing.

    With a day job that requires her to know the ins and outs of Washington nightlife, dining, drinking, and shopping, she criss-crosses the city like a champ — and in killer heels, no less.
