    January is hard, you guys. Christmas is over, the weather is awful, and we've got the stress of our date-less Valentine's Day looming ahead. Instead of self-medicating with Homeland marathons and entire logs of store-bought cookie dough, we've decided to treat ourselves with everyone's favorite pick-me-up: shopping. And, there's nothing more special than finding that one-of-a-kind vintage treasure that truly makes your heart soar.

    Luckily, local collective Quarter Life is teaming up with artisan boutique Ginger Root Design to bring District style lovers one awesome secondhand collection. The pieces will be handpicked by Lisa Rowan of Quarter Life, and styled by the experts at Ginger Root. Plus, this Friday, the shop will be hosting a cocktail party to kick off the partnership. We've got a sneak peek at some of the looks from the evening, so click through to check them out — and hands off the DVR, ladies!

    When: Friday, January 11, from 6 to 9 p.m.
    Where: Ginger Root Design, 1530 U Street NW; 202-567-7668.
