This Season's Must-Haves

By Fritz Hahn

Now that the weather has finally -- finally -- turned, it's time to start thinking about your spring wardrobe. Some of us are feeling a little light after paying taxes earlier this week, but there is a way to look stylish and stand out from the crowd without having to live on ramen to support your fashion habit.

Listopad is an online vintage store run by D.C. residents Cathy Chung and Katerina Herodotou, specializing in chic wardrobe essentials that could work as well for the office as a night of hot-and-heavy dancing at the Rock and Roll Hotel. Since buying gently-used clothes online is full of trepidation -- least of which is gauging the fit without seeing the garment in question -- Listopad also hosts seasonal parties so shoppers can examine the goods up close and personal and do a little socializing on the side.

Tomorrow afternoon at Marvin, Listopad is hosting a Vintage Springtime Event with what the women promise is a "carefully curated" selection of seasonal dresses, tops, shoes and accessories displayed on the patio. Even better, Chung promises that "at least one third of the items are for the men," which is (rare) music to my ears. (Take a look at the Listopad blog for sneak previews.)

Oh, and to top it all off, there's free champagne from noon to 1, and music all afternoon from DJ Chris Burns, whose deep house grooves and funky selections make his Disco City night one of the best dance parties in town. If that doesn't get you in the mood for browsing, nothing will.

Hi there,

I read about the event at Marvin but couldn't make it. Will there be any other upcoming events? Also, is there any way to work to get my business or vintage looks bags associated with Listopad or the ladies? Please see www.KuraDesign.com for photos. I can help coordinate an event as well and good job on the menswear!
