District Dish Is Back!

I kind of feel like District Dish is like the Alexandria version of Game of Thrones; we have been on hiatus so long that folks are wondering when will we return. I mean, I know the anticipation has been driving folks crazy. All kidding aside (I mean, a few folks did ask), we are finally back and better than ever. How could we be better, you ask? Well, we have invited some of our favorite Alexandrians to help model some of spring’s biggest trends for our comeback episodes.

I have to admit, I have enjoyed collaborating with Kelly from Bishop Boutique. She really is a hoot. My younger self would probably have been worried when a second shoe store opened. But my theory in later years has always been water makes all ship rise, and this has been true since she opened seven years ago. The more great stores we have in Old Town, the better.

So mark your calendars, pour your coffee, and hang out with us on Instagram Stories the following days and times.


And you to get you excited for all things spring, we thought we would share our three favorite spring trends that we have a both stores, because great minds think alike.

I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
