Meet Will Simon. Will Simon is bringing some DC pride to our every day fashion choices with his DC inspired Socks. Currently, Simon is working to fund his new fashion sock line, LINEDWEAR, on Kickstarter. As an early investor we hear you’ll be the first to receive a pair as they are already in the process of being manufactured. When we asked Simon what inspired his venture, he responded by noting that even though we may all be from elsewhere, everyone is incredibly proud of the place we now call home. We couldn’t agree more. Below is the quick story behind LINEDWEAR and how you can get a pair of these amazing socks. Check out LINEDWEAR’s awesome Kickstarter
Meet Rochelle Behrens. Rochelle Behrens was working in politics in DC when she created The Shirt – a button down shirt that doesn’t gape at the bust. If you’re a professional lady in DC, you have been there, but have never had a solution outside of tape or flashing your co-workers on the regular. Knowing that she wasn’t the only one facing this problem, Behrens created The Shirt which quickly gained popularity and sells in higher end boutique stores. Recently however, The Shirt team has launched a kickstarter campaign to make it more readily available. Behrens was able to sit down with FamousDC for a quick chat on how she’s revolutionizing DC women’s fashion and how YOU can help by supporting your local shirt designer on kickstarter.
Feasting Famously with Necessary & Proper
Feasting Famously with Necessary & Proper Fashion-Forward Founders Lauren & Van Dish about Cooking, Hosting, and Entertaining As I’m walking to PJ Clarke’s Sidecar to meet the founders of the popular DC-based fashion blog Necessary & Proper, Lauren and Van, I find myself oddly nervous. Am I dressed appropriately (that’s silly, of course), will they be nice, down-to-earth, absurdly well dressed, and easy to talk to? The answer to all of the above, as I soon found out, is a resounding “yes.” Launched in January 2012 as a site to showcase their personal fashion sense, trending styles, local brands and entertaining concepts, Necessary & Proper soon became a top blog for social-style in the District. Not taking themselves too seriously, Lauren & Van show the masses how to combine patterns, colors, and textured fabrics into cohesive outfits. Haven’t we all struggled with what is the proper attire when walking through the park in the snow? Or what to wear when playing in a pile of leaves? Is my Smith Point outfit acceptable to wear again to Martin’s Tavern brunch (the answer is no)? These are some of the fun and admitting outlandish, photo-shoots (sans the last one) that Lauren and Van use to showcase their fashionable combinations.
