Weekend Buzz: NYFW Controversy, Street Fests, & Patriotic TOMS

How's this for a little morning controversy? Fresh off the heels of the Washington Post Express's anti-style blogger story that ruffled more than a few feathers, the Post Style section published an article that poses the question: "If you go to Fashion Week and no one takes your picture, were you ever really there?" What do you think: Is posing for street-style photogs "desperation," or a way to show off your best duds? (Washington Post)
On the (very long) list of things we wish we could cook, lobster is definitely near the top. While we're a little skeptical of our own ability to recreate this grill feast — despite step-by-step instructions — we think it's worth trying, regardless. (Bitches Who Brunch)
Just because summer's over, it doesn't mean that the festivals have to end. Head on over to H Street today to boogie down to live music on five different stages, catch fashion shows and street parades, and so much more. (H Street)
Not one to miss out on a political opportunity, TOMS has created election-themed slip-ons. Show off your pride for the GOP or the Dems, or just go neutral with the VOTE version. (Capitol Hill Style)
One of D.C.'s most glamorous style stars, Aureta Thomollari, made the most of NYFW, and she's chronicling her adventures for Washingtonian's Shop Around blog. (Washingtonian)
