FAIRFAX—Mega-popular blogger Jacey Duprie's site, Damsel in Dior, is a full-on fashion and lifestyle resource. And despite what her brand name implies, Duprie's wardrobe selections don't always come with a couture price tag. Enter her latest collab with casual, ready-to-wear brand Splendid. Together, they've created a limited edition collection packed with classic cotton pieces like a perfect shirtdress, a stripey tee that fulfills our francophile fantasies, super soft lounge pants, and more easy-to-wear goodies you'd expect from Splendid. Get your first look at all the breezy basics this Thursday when the store's The Grove location (189 The Grove Drive) hosts an event with the Damsel herself from 6:30-8pm. The first ten guests to make a purchase during the event will score a free Splendid x Damsel tee. Attendees are asked to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance.
FAIRFAX—Late last week we let you know about Nordstrom's current Beauty Trend Week at The Grove (189 The Grove Drive), which is loaded with beauty-boosting events through Saturday. Thursday's offerings include a Giorgio Armani fall styling session from 3-7pm, a Diptyque master class at 7pm in which guests will learn the best ways to layer their fave fragrances while sipping wine and enjoying light bites, hand and arm massages courtesy of Jo Malone from 11am-7pm, and all day "finishing touches" from DryBar's tress experts—plus so much more. Make sure to check in with a beauty adviser at the department store for full details and to make your appointment.
