    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'…)
