While we normally always recommend fiscal responsibility over fashion splurges, tonight might be the one occasion where we struggle with our own practicality. Why? Because Hu's Wear is showcasing the Céline Spring '12 RTW collection, with help from local stylists Tara Luizzi, Jen Roberti, and Alison Lukes. So, basically, you can expect really beautiful clothes paired with practical advice on how you can actually wear them — otherwise known as a one-two punch. Phoebe Philo's ultra-luxe, blissfully minimalist designs for spring will be on display, and the style mavens at Hu's Wear are hoping that the District's working girls will fall for the tailored trousers, structured tops, and fashion-forward florals. At the very least, you'll enjoy a bit of Parisian eye candy and some free personalized advice from the pros. But, should you opt to splurge on a perfect blazer and then have to resign yourself to eating ramen for a month, we won't judge. When: Today, May 18, from 5 to 8 p.m.
Where: Hu's Wear, 2906 M Street NW; 202-342-2020.
