A Box, A Box!

Our UPS guy has lost muscle tone. Instead of the deluge of April merchandise, he brings the occasional sad, flat box.

Outdressing has acquired a second meaning. The first, to dress more stylishly than someone else, still applies, but now it also means to dress as if you were actually going to go outside.

Do Wear This at Home

Awkward Video No. 1

Minimum Basic Operations

From March 26th - April 24th, we’re shifting to Minimum Basic Operations as required by DC law.  We took yesterday to prepare ways to stay in touch despite closed doors. We hope you’ll enjoy upcoming Looks, Videos, and our first Virtual Trunk Show.  

As the pj’s and workout clothes lose their 24/7 appeal, we’re at the other end of Facetime and What’s App to help navigate the way out of the legging and sweatshirt maze. Delivery service will allow at-home comfort and style comparisons, and many of our brands are ready for the shutdown showdown.

Please reach out via phone or text -  202 785 1975 - or email any of us at your convenience: 

Betsy betsy@betsyfisher.com, Emilie, emilie@betsyfisher.com, Melissa, melissa@betsyfisher.com Jamie, jamie@betsyfisher.com and Suzanne, suzanne@betsyfsher.com

Until the 24th - virtual hugs and telekisses!
