08/10/11 And now for another edition of SnarkInfested’s exploration of DC street fashion – Snark Street! By a huge stroke of luck, I caught my smart and stylish [I first met her at a fashion show she hosted] friend Andrea walking her noble looking pooch at Rosedale – a secret gem of a park, btw – on Sunday afternoon. They both agreed to pose for a few photos and Andrea answered some questions:
Q. Who are you wearing?
A. No idea. I bought this dress for $20- $30 at the airport in Las Vegas.
Q. Does DC have a particular sense of street style?
A. Yes, however, I am not wearing it as I am just out walking the dog. DC has a very professional, conservative atmosphere.
Q. Which DC neighborhood is most fashionable?
A. Embassy Row. DC is a very international city and I really enjoy seeing the different dresses by European designers which women wear at Embassy receptions. It’s nice to see something other than what’s on the Ann Taylor rack.
