DC Poetry: Conference Calls

Words by Rebecca Rouse, styling by Juliet Vedral   they’re like, ok tell us your ideas, group of people who have never met and can’t see each other and then there is silence   i am still not 100% who these people are who convened this call i just said something now there is silence…

Ms. Vedral Goes to Washington: Where To Get Your Nails Did

It’s been widely documented on these pages that I like to get my grooming on. Eyebrow threadings, waxing, mani/pedis–as Lindsay Bluth Funke would rightly point out, “these are some real costs, Michael.” And boy are they real. I moved here a little over nine months ago on a tight budget, only to find that the…

Fashion’s Night Out: DC Style

Whoever described Washington as “Hollywood for ugly people” clearly never visited Fashion’s Night Out: Georgetown. This past Thursday, September 6th, M Street played host to a variety of fashion-centric events, deals, parties, and well, some frankly beautiful people. DC Style Is Real was on hand to capture some of those faces and stories and to…

Ms.Vedral Goes to Washington: Flats are for…

About a year ago, when I first began telling my friends and family that I was considering a move from my native New York City to Washington DC, the first argument against it–without fail–would be “but you have so much style.” I’ll admit, I didn’t disagree with their concern.

Ms. Vedral Goes to Washington: Have You Met Ted?

I’ve been waiting to do a review of Ted’s Bulletin, almost since I first moved down here. But there was no way that one meal could do it justice, so after four visits (with definitely more to come), here is my take on Ted’s. For those living in North or Southeast, Ted’s should become a…

Ms. Vedral Goes to Washington: 31 Going On 13

One of the most defining moments of my life was a watching Stephane Matteau score the game (and series) winning goal in double overtime against the New Jersey Devils. This goal sent the New York Rangers to the finals where they broke their 54 year curse and won the 1994 Stanley Cup. This goal solidified…

Ms. Vedral Goes to Washington: Glasses Off, Lights Out, Song 1

Author’s note: I’m about to mix up some metaphors here. In previous posts, I’ve referred to DC as a nerdy guy and also as the girl next door. Since I’m assuming you’re reading this at work because someone posted it as their g-chat status, I’ll refrain from getting into a discussion about the social constructs…
