The LBD:  The Little Black Dress as created by Coco for her lover’s funeral and worn by Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffany’s… this staple piece remains an icon.  Always classy, understated, elegant and finished with pearls, oy!  This piece has withstood the ages because it is a staple in every woman’s wardrobe and can be worn day or night, with heels or flats.  And it never fails to enchant!

Let’s be honest, shopping for fit is not fun. Well, for the exception of 2% of the population that can wear anything off the rack and those who intuitively knows what works for their body type. But fit is not a science. The first step is to recognize the fact that numbers are relative in the fashion industry. It invented vanity sizing after all! Rather, learning what works for your body type ensures a more pleasant shopping experience.

On Tuesday, April 28, TERRA will host a one-hour seminar aptly called Capital Style: Back to the Basics. The lecture aims to empower women by giving them the tools to create their own style – effortless style, that is. TERRA owner, Oriana Khatso, will impart a few ground rules on how to dress for your body type and how to shop for pieces that can be mixed and matched to create a versatile wardrobe. Guests will leave with a roadmap to shopping for fit and style.

The event will be held at the stylish Darlington House in Dupont Circle from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., presentation at 7 p.m. Complimentary food and drink will be served. Please RSVP at by Monday, April 27, 2009.

This seminar kicks off a series of seminars scheduled throughout the year so stay tuned for future events!

TERRA is a clothing, accessories and jewelry boutique located at 1706 Connecticut Avenue, NW, in the heart of Dupont Circle, downtown Washington DC.  We handpick every item in our store based upon the lifestyles of our clients, the beauty and quality of the piece, its versatility and we ensure that every item fits the bill ‘bang for your buck’! ——————————————————————————————————————————

At TERRA, we believe in ‘effortless style’ – any woman can be the best dressed woman in any room – with the right pieces in her wardrobe AND it doesn’t have to be so difficult to achieve.  TERRA STYLE will delve into dicey topics like jeans, dresses, accessories, and shoes – we admire many beautiful things – ‘but do they match ANYTHING in our closet and what works best for ME?’! 


We’d like to help you touch-up your wardrobe and work as a team to create a style that’s just right for you. 


We plan to conquer a new topic every month and we’d love your feedback!
