Fashion is art, and it’s a form of art that I particularly enjoy. A new dress can really uplift my spirits — I think retail therapy is very much a real thing. There’s something about feeling good in your own skin that makes the world a little bit brighter. And these favorite designers and stores definitely perk up my world (and my wardrobe).
One of my favorite designers is Meg Kinney, who is based in New York. Her great shapes and fabulous fabrics can go from casual to elegant with a simple change of accessories. I love that Meg is woman-owned, American-made and constructed with care for the environment. And the best part: her clothes all go in the washing machine!
Hands down, my favorite store in D.C. is GoodWood. Anna Kahoe has a great eye, stocks ethically made clothes, and brings a well-made, European quality to her store. I can always find something unique that fits well and suits my style. Somehow, Anna manages to have something for everyone.
Check out Meg and GoodWood for some new treasures for yourself!
