We're approaching that odd point in the middle of summer when we start to look forward to fall, but we're still really enjoying the sunshine and pool days — which means the time is right for a trunk show that features the best of both worlds. Starting Friday, Old Town boutique Hysteria is hosting a three-day trunk show for NYC-based bag line MZ Wallace, spotlighting new pre-fall styles and so-right-now sequined canvas totes. We've got our eye on the cushy Metro totes, and the perfectly practical Belle satchels. (Is there a more appropriate bag for a D.C. working girl? We think not.)The event includes two drawings for gifts from the brand, plus everyone who scoops up a bag will get a special coupon to use later this summer. Sweetening the deal even more? The ongoing discount we told you about last week will be ramped up to 40% off this weekend. Click through to see our favorite bag buys, and mark your calendars for this perfectly timed shop-portunity (sorry, couldn't help it). When: Friday, June 29, through Sunday, July 1.
Where: Hysteria, 125 South Fairfax Street, Alexandria; 703-548-1615.
