Saturday we checked out Esprit de Noel which was held on the Georgetown Visitation School campus.Â This bazaar features boutique vendors from all over Washington selling their wares at a major discount.Â Friend of the Punch and Visitation alum, Kathlin Argiro, was there with tons of her beautiful dress designs for sale.
(Pictured above: some of Kathlin’s wrap dresses for sale; below: the designer and me as we gather up some purchases)
While I was lucky to make it out of there with a few pieces for this season’s parties, my FAVORITE new item is her “Dressong”.Â It’s basically at least 6 dresses in one.Â Made of kind of a spandex-y/Lycra material and beautiful vibrant colors and patterns, a woman can wear these dresses/sarongs tied in various ways, which are VERY flattering and VERY sexy.Â I knew I was planning on donning them while traveling this winter to warmer, fairer weather, but I was too excited to wait.Â So, Saturday evening I created a little twist halter look, threw on a long black knit sweater and black pants and off I went.Â It was daring, but it worked because I got tons of compliments and “Where did you get that?” of course, I directed them to Kathlin Argiro.com.Â
Check out these versatile pieces in other press pieces:
