I was in DC over the weekend for my brother and nephew/godson's birthday party at Lincoln Park on the Hill, so I got an eyeful.

Ha ha ... I spent most of my 20s in pantyhose. PANTYHOSE. We moved straight from DC to "the OC" right when I turned 30, and I haven't touched a pair since. My husband has about 25 suits that are basically taking up space in the guest room closet. But you spend that much money at Brooks Brothers, it's hard to get rid of them.
Anyway, DC Duh: I met my husband in DC. He was a Colorado transplant, just like me, so we understood each other. We are there no longer, obviously. Fun while it lasted, glad to be gone. One of his good buddies became a lobbyist, and now splits time between DC and Jackson Hole. He represents the heliski industry, and spends much of his winter and spring, uh, accepting favors?
(Sorry, he's married already.)
So, all is not lost. You might find what you need there, just gotta know where to look.
