Fall Day Trips with Marc

Fall day trips with Marc Joseph, that is. Starting on Friday, we are having a three-day-long Marc Joseph trunk show. The first reason to get excited is the 20% discount on all trunk show items. The second reason is the remarkable wearability of Marc Joseph’s designs. Yep, wearability. (It’s a word. I looked it up.) […]

My husband and I use to cross the river to Your Nation’s Capital to go to dinner exactly twice a year: Valentine’s Day and our wedding anniversary.
