We're firm believers that good things come in pairs, particularly when it comes to fashionable families. Mary-Kate and Ashley, Theodora and Alexandra Richards, Elle and Dakota, Laura and Kate Mulleavy — you see where we're going with this, right? So, we're doubly elated that D.C. has gotten its very own shot of sisterly style—with a brand-new storefront to boot.
Meet Christina and Natalie Albina, girl-crush-worthy stylists and shop owners who were born and bred in Bethesda, and plan to call it home for the long haul. Each half of this sartorial set has a distinct way of dressing: One is edgy, tough, and eclectic with a penchant for arm-partying; while the other is polished and feminine with a preference for minimalism. But they both share a passion for helping their clients build badass wardrobes, and they gave us a special peek at their own favorite looks during a special tour of Style Etoile
, their Rockville boutique. Click through to get to know this dynamic duo and peep some unreal eye candy. (You might wanna stash that credit card away first. Just sayin'…)
