and jump on the fashion bandwagon at the same time.
Ports 1961 has been getting tons of blog and "regular" press - and for good reason. There's a certain retrp aesthetic - one that everyone from Ann to J. Crew is copying (and J. Crew is doing a right good job of it, mind you - see Ms. Spinach's take on their spring collection) - but that's distinctly modern.
To get a glimpse of drool-worthy dresses, like the portrait-collared dress shown here, hit Sangaree's Spring Fashion Fete...
What: Fashion Show, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres - always a lovely combination - and portions of proceeds going to Suited for Change (a favorite charity of mine). Ports 1961 & Alvin Valley spring 2008 collections.
Where: Sangaree - 3288 M Street NW
When: Thursday, 7 February, 6-9pm, show starts at 7.
