Get your fashion, art, and design fix all in one dose at FAD Georgetown, a weekend-long celebration of all things aesthetically pleasing. Hit up your favorite Gtown shops, like Madewell, Alex & Ani, and Urban Chic, on Friday night; learn about the art and design work going on in the District on Saturday; and enjoy delicious food and cocktails around the 'hood from Thursday through Saturday. Sounds like a totally awesome weekend to us.
Thursday, October 10 through Saturday, October 12. Various locations; see a full schedule of events here.
The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City is the place to be these next two weekends. On Friday, catch the grand opening of the new C. Wonder store, where one lucky customer will get to spin the "Wheel of Wonder" to win C. Wonder products. Not a winner? Don't worry: The first 100 customers on Friday and Saturday will get mystery cards worth a discount of up to 50% off.
Friday, October 10, and Saturday, October 11, from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. 1100 South Hayes Street; 703-413-7046.
To prove our above point: The Topshop outpost inside the Pentagon City Nordstrom opened yesterday. If you aren't dying to get over there already, the stores have partnered with local blog A Lacey Perspective to host an afternoon soiree next Saturday, October 19. There'll be a photog and a DJ to help bring out your inner model, and the first 100 attendees will get a sweet swag bag.
Saturday, October 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. Nordstrom, Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, 1400 South Hayes Street; 703-415-1121.
Ever wish you'd been born in the '60s? You can still fake it: Don your best Andy Warhol-inspired attire and get ready for the "Night of 1,000 Andys" dance party at Artisphere. First, check out the Andy Warhol: Silver Clouds exhibit at Artisphere, then jump into the groovy festivities with comedian Andrew Bucket, DJ Baby Alcatraz, the MarchFourth Marching Band, and a pop-art photo station.
