dc hot spots

I've been getting loads upon loads of emails asking for my go-to spots in DC so I'm dishing the dirt on my favorites. My guide to DC goodness will be a permanent fixture here at District Sparkle & can be found in the navigation bar above.

pretty people vintage (alexandria, va) - hands down best vintage
secondi - some of my best pieces have come from digging thru their racks
buffalo exchange - new to dc & well worth the wait
second affair - my favorite hidden gem
meeps - my favorite neighborhood shop

clothing care

darlington house - super yummy menu with a great atmosphere
sette - best italian
acqua al 2 - fine italian
shake shack - favorite burger joint
dean & deluca - georgetown refuel

southern hospitality - hands down favorite for any meal, any occasion, any time
dgs delicatessen - restaurant style serving delicious deli foods
scion - best bellini bar in town
the front page - buffet. 'nuff said.

lady maintenance
mimosa salon - mani/pedi
bliss - day spa experience
blue mercury - the works
salon cielo - ask for jasmine [hair]

after hours
veritas wine bar - cozy nook for low key nights
russia house - it's exactly what you'd expect from the name; a house full of russians. & vodka.
madhatter - when all you want to do is dance like you're a junior in college
napolean - one step up from napolean with a european edge

eastern market - my haven for unique jewelry, bags, furniture & gallery wall additions. make a day of it & stay for the food
dupont market - neighborhood market for fresh produce & blooms

  4. Love the new feature! But I went to Scion a few weeks ago and they said they were getting rid of their Bellinis :-(

  5. Did you mean Urbana instead of Scion for the best bellini bar?


Go ahead. Make my day sparkle!
