I visited DC last month and met up with Cee, my favorite local, for some Ethiopian fare at Zenebech Injera,
a hole in the wall near Howard University.



Cee wouldn’t let me include her
in my picture of the food and when I suggested that she pose with the food she ducked instinctively to the corner. Other than being completely uncooperative with photos, she was the perfect dining companion–impeccably dressed, great table manners, willing to engage random topics I imposed on her, and laughed at even a hint of humor
(she even brought me a cupcake!)

A quick word about the fit of the topper. It is loose-fitting and the petite XXS that I wore here will comfortably accommodate someone up to a size 4 so take a size (or two) down from your usual size.

I like the Sloan Sheath Dress and wish it came in more colors. Other styles that I find interesting include the Gemma Windowpane Wrap Dress, Rugby-Stripe Dress, Double-Breasted Coat, and Flared Trench.


Happy shopping!
