Sweet sights of summer

I recently chatted with Mauro Farinelli, former owner of Bethesda's Denim Bar, now owner of Farinelli's in Clarendon who says he's trying his hardest to improve the landscape of the DC area fashion scene but is feeling a little dejected. The fashion-forward Farinelli wants women to please break out of the knit-dress-khaki-capri box and try some clothes that say summer in a fresh, new way. And he's got the goods on hand. Let's throw him a bone and check out a few of his faves--especially because he's having a Memorial Day sale with reductions of up to 40 percent. I like the peachy Chelsea bohemian froth with a touch of rhinestone glitz. And what says summer like navy blue and white stripes? Catherine Holstein's tailored jumpsuit is classic. (Oh, and by the way, he says the menswear is flying out of the shop. Are we going to let them actually beat us at shopping?) Above : Chelsea dress.
