Weekend Buzz: Spring Shades, Coachella Dreamin', & Local Shops

It's no secret we love shopping, but it gets even better when we can spend our hard-earned dollars for a good cause. Hit up Fashion For A Cure on April 28 to stock up on designer duds, all in the name of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. (EventBrite)
One of the best things about the District is the awesome array of local mom-and-pop shops — whether it's a boutique chock full of treasures or your corner restaurant. Check out the story behind the latest establishment to hit the scene, and learn about the allure of sustainable groceries. (Washington Post)
What's the best part about spring, you ask? Well, besides spending every possible second outside, we're crazy about rocking the season's bold, bright colors — and we're lusting after this perfectly peach frock. (District Sparkle)
