We all know I'm a hopeless romantic. And I dare say a few of you out there are, too. So here's your chance to indulge that Philippa Gregory-Louisa May Alcott-Dickensian (though his "heroines" rarely are)-leaning. Alicia Bell's ultra contemporary blouses and dresses pack an undeniable heroine aesthetic: ruffles, bows, fitted like the shirtwaist you know you always wanted to wear. Oh, and miracle of miracles, she actually designs shirts for most women, even those above a size 2...her styles go up to a 16.
What: Alicia Bell Custom Trunk Show
Where: Daisy Too, 4940 St. Elmo Avenue, Bethesda
When: Thursday, 17 April 12-6pm
Why: Because custom anything is oh, so cool (and ready-to-wear styles are in the store, as well). It's a perfect way to blow that loan you just got back from the Government (the clothes don't come cheap, but hey! they're custom!)
