This sounds fascinating. From Sunday Source and DC Scout:
Get a crash course on the power of style during a talk with Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan, Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth and author A'Lelia Bundles. The discussion will cover sartorial history from the time of Bundles's great-grandmother, Harlem Renaissance-era socialite A'Lelia Walker, to today's political power brokers. Friday at 7 p.m. Barnes & Noble, 3040 M St. NW. Free. 202-965-9880.
