Because the day was bright, but my head felt dim, I decided that no true work would be accomplished today and headed over to Marvin for the Listopad vintage sale/event (thanks Ms. Spinach for the heads up).
It must have been the limited amount of sleep I got last night (Howard U. students throwing their end of semester out-of-control shindig 3 doors down - and the subsequent police sirens - did not allow for much sleep), but I just was too tired to to be inspired when I got there. I saw a few interesting things (like the bright coral grecian dress below. . .which, come to think of it, I should have bought - would have looked amazing with a tan!) and a DVF dress (the blue and white one).
But, what impressed me most was the HUGE patio at Marvin (who knew?). I have a neighbor who works there and, of course, I have heard all the hoopla, but I haven't had a chance to head over before this afternoon. It reminded me a lot of the 18th Street Lounge. It was not too crowded and after 2 mimosas and a bit of chatting I headed home.
But, the utmost best part of the whole thing is that I ran into my hairdresser from years ago who just moved back to DC!! I have not had a decent cut since she left over 2 years ago. I actually gave her a hug, I was so excited. (I am sure she thinks I am weird.) Oh well. As long as she cuts my hair! Here are some pics (sorry if they are less-than-stellar . . . I am feeling less-than-stellar today):
On my bike ride home, I was photographed by Graeme King for a project he is doing for Artomatic. He is documenting 24 hours on 14th street. If you have time, go say "hi", he'll be there until 9 AM on Sunday (he was near Pulp on 14th street).
