Home again, home again, jiggedy jog…

After 11 days in New York, four days at the New Jersey shore, and one pit-stop to see the parents in Delaware, I'm now back in DC for the foreseeable future. (Oh, wardrobe, how I've missed you!) The timing couldn't be better, as there's lots of fun fashiony things going on right now that I definitely didn't want to miss.
First up was the press dinner for Nanette Lepore last night at Indebleu. (Did you see the great article on Nanette in last week's WSJ?) She was totally charming and funny and very candid about fashion and the fashion process, which was completely refreshing and also somewhat educational. Tonight's the official launch of her Chevy Chase boutique – complete with fun dancey mariachi-esque band, I hear -- which should be great fun. I especially loved her saturated abstract florals from her spring show the other week (above) – the show in which I also sat right behind Lauren Conrad and blatantly admired her expensive highlights.
And then! On Wednesday, we'll be heading up to Ginger in Bethesda for the Saja fall collection trunk show. The trunk show runs all day, but cocktails and finger foods will be served between 6-9pm (and you know how we love cocktails and finger foods). We were just up at the store the other day, and they're stocking some really incredibly drool-worthy items for fall...
Plus: If you do head up to Ginger, don't miss the new shop Lou Lou just across the way – it's absolutely crammed with fun jewelry and other accessories. (We may have just gotten an awesome bow headband there that we will probably rock sometime this week.) Who'da thunk that Bethesda would become our favorite go-to shopping destination?
And then! Sugar's Fall Bash! Fashion Fights Poverty! Crafty Bastards! There's more info here on all those happenings.
And now, if you'll excuse us, we've got some unpacking and wardrobe planning to do.
