D.C. does Fashion's Night Out

Presumably because the economy hasn't recovered well enough to go back to ignoring the common folk, organizers of New York Fashion Week's Fashion's Night Out event promise an even glitzier second round of consumer-friendly festivities Friday evening.

But at least for tonight, forget about the clack of stilettos at Lincoln Center and the celebrity hobnobbing your NYC friends will surely be bragging about tomorrow. Try to focus on D.C.: Georgetown merchants have pulled together a lineup of economy-stimulating activities for local fashionistas. (Curious? Going Out Guide to tonight.)

Since I'm relatively new to D.C., I figured some of the best research on fashion tendencies in Georgetown could be found in Alexandra Garcia's "Scene In: D.C.'s Style Scene" video series. (Garcia visited the Georgetown Waterfront. Here's what she found.)

I'll sum up what I saw for you in 140 characters or less -- because that's kind of what I do around here: No secret, Georgetown's the shiny side of D.C. It's decidedly less edgy and more self-aware. Look for pearls, parasols and prepsters.

Now give me Your Take: Where's your neighborhood and what's the message it sends to the world through clothing, accessories and attitude? Rubber ducky tattoos and combat boots? Big silver hoops and obnoxious aviators? Do tell. Better yet, do tweet. Send @washingtonpost your replies and we'll feature the best right here in this blog.

(And if you're going out tonight, you can follow Georgetown's FNO event on Twitter here.)
