The rules of hair care are simple and finite. Any Cosmo girl would have known. In 8 weeks ~88% of blondes will be extinct. Reverse grey is the new ombré, so THE SHOP AT SHAW got to the root of the problem ➡️ INSERT MY DYE [divine shine] custom color kits - literally “lipgloss for your hair”. Strip brassiness, refresh your color until your next visit, or try out a quarantine fantasy color. Send a DM to @theshopatshaw on Instagram for more details. #DCITYstyle

They say life happens in the kitchen. If that's the case, we certainly wouldn't mind spending it here. Springing up this spring in Shaw: bright and airy, balanced living designed to keep comfort levels high and stress even lower. See what's coming to the neighborhood at 901W and The Wren. #DCITYstyle
Seek and you shall find. While neighborhood staples like Lettie Gooch remain physically closed, it hasn't stopped us from looking for some new [zoom-appropriate] clothes - online. Glad we scooped these up early - visit LettieGooch.com for *new arrivals* - including Mono B Clothing's flowy mineral-wash short-sleeve and triangle cutout hoodies (almost sold out). What are you wearing to the living room tomorrow? #DCITYstyle

Home is where the 💛 is.
Torie Partridge of @cherryblossomhq encapsulates this age-old adage through the Neighborhood Maps Project. In her own words:
“It’s not just about loving your city, it’s about loving the city within the city. It’s about knowing your neighbors, supporting the businesses just outside your doorstep, and creating community where you live. Neighborhood pride helps to bring us all together.”
Each hand-drawn map is designed and illustrated by Torie and features a color palette as unique as the neighborhood itself. Local love, to the letter. #DCITYstyle @ Shaw, Washington, D.C.
Tapestry. Textiles. Ceramics. Quillwork. Printmaking. Photography. Art. Women. The majority of Native art was, and is, female-made. It fills our hearts - and the Renwick Gallery - through May 17. #DCITYstyle

Style as fresh as a daisy. Pop into @rewilddc this weekend and mark it down: VDAY = #winning. If their selection of house plants, succulents, floral bouquets (+ DIY terrarium bar) can't plant the seed with your Valentine, we're not sure what to tell ya. But, if you buy a 10" plant you get 50% off a pot to go with it - and as always, @rewilddc will pot your plant for free. See? #stillwinning. Head to the link below for REWILD's website and vibe. ☮ 💚🌱 #DCITYstyle
