A doorman, a waiter proffering drinks and these macaroons welcomed guests to M29 Lifestyle's grand opening party Monday night. The new Georgetown boutique at--surprise--29th and M carries a little of everything from home goods to apparel to jewelry. We especially loved jewelry designer and Ralph Lauren alumnus Carol Workinger's trunk show and were grateful she could manage an appearance just a week before her wedding. Other faves include winsome cloth dolls from Jess Brown, tissue-weight tee's and cardigans from Marika Charles and sequined clutches from Indian designer Moyna. If you need to find a birthday or housewarming gift for someone who has everything, chances are good you'll find it here.
