The Sentimentalist has graciously agreed to be a collecting agent for this worthy project. Stop by the bridal boutique at 1655 Defoor Avenue, NW between now and December 21st and swap your frock for a special thank you gift. Hours are from 10 am to 6 pm Tuesdays through Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 pm.
Beth Ann Taratoot has been a friend of this blog from its early days, so when she invited me to see this Touchstone trunk show,
I had to post about it. Such shopping is an education. Her friend Veronica Kaplan is a curator of folk art rarities, many of which are on display today and tomorrow at the Irby Avenue boutique. Gentlemen: the Rib Ranch is nearby, but you should spend a few momements in awe of the artistry before withdrawing. Ladies: while some of the prices do reflect the offerings' unique natures,
all are good values and start from $30.

More than just eye catching, some outfits tell wonderful stories, too. She remembers mending this thrifted coat while waiting for a train in France. Her repurposed bag began life as a Polaroid accessories case. The boots were won from an eBay auction and the dress was found at a Youngblood Gallery clothing swap.

It was my good fortune to have attended ArtCAN as a media guest. The evening of dance, music, fine art and hors d'oeuvres benefited pancreatic cancer research and took place in the Atlanta Ballet's Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre. Their coordinating heels, handkerchief and bowtie make a charming statement of solidarity.
