    We're not gonna say this stuff is Mobama-inspired, but ... yes, it is.

    Michelle Obama's still in Europe, so someone's gotta be in charge of District fashion while she's gone. And we refuse to take on that much responsibility. Just look at the state of our house plants.

    However. The doors of the new Lettie Gooch location "officially" open Friday night at 1517 U St. N.W., with a third-birthday party for the designer shop. From 6-9 p.m., you'll find the prerequisite champagne and cupcakes (not that we'd EVER complain about champagne and cupcakes), DJ Quazare spinning, and plenty of new spring items. A fashion show kicks off at 7:30 p.m.

    Can't make it Friday night? We know how hard it is to pass up a plan of kalamata-olive pizza and a stack of Netflix'ed "Lost" DVDs ... or maybe that's just us. Designer trunk shows will be happening Saturday and Sunday as well. Check out Analili's mod silhouettes and Mobama-esque patterns, and Fresh Ink Denim's infinity-plus-one brands of designer jeans.
