We're lucky enough in D.C. to have two outposts of Cusp, a Neiman Marcus spin off. They've edited out all the filler and frumpy clothes, and hand picked gorgeous, stylish tops, dresses, and jeans. They've even laid out their favorite handbags, shoes, perfume, and makeup. It's a great place to score good deals when they're having sales too-- we just bought a gorgeous alice & olivia top and a Marc Jacobs dress!
This weekend Cusp opened their on-line shopping site (previously just a blog-but a fave of ours for their great fashion advice) and they've just announced that Lauren Merkin will be at the Cusp in Georgetown (3030 M St. NW) on Thursday, April 3rd from 6:00 to 8:00. She makes the best clutches from denim to leather to sequin. (We've featured them on JSG!) We would love to meet her and to sweeten the deal, Cusp is throwing in a free gift with purchase.
