Stephanie Parkes in Work-to-Weekend Wear

Stephanie Parkes wearing Gemini Pant Gingham by Veronica Beard, Short Sleeve Baseball Tee by Nili Lotan, Malana by Sofft, Cayman Tote by Hat Attack and Adriatic Earrings by Lizzie Fortunato.

Okay, so if you know Stephanie Parkes you know she always looks amazing. I know many of us know her because her dog, Tanner (follow him on Instagram at @golden_tannerpup). He actually is a dog model. However, I think it is time for someone to sign Stephanie on the dotted line.

She has always been beautiful but a few months back I saw a photo of her on Instagram, or maybe it was a Story, and I was like “what in the world, somehow she is looking even better than ever!” I am talking abs – the girl had abs – along with a glow and confidence about her that I envied. I, of course, emailed her and did that can-I-please-have-whatever-you-are-having-because-you-look-amazing (once again, not that she didn’t look great before). Of course, it was that super-secret equation of working out (thank you, sculp’d of Alexandria) and cleaning up her diet.

When we wanted to do a shoot on pieces that you could take from work to the weekend, we gave Stephanie a call. She is a pharmacist at Wegmans, which means she works long shifts and is on her feet non-stop. She also has a busy social schedule, which somehow she always seems to be perfectly dressed for any occasion. Let’s be honest: when she pops in the store, even while out walking her dog, she always looks perfect. Some people just have that knack.

So here are some of our newest arrivals styled on one of our favorite customers.

  • The latest from Elizabeth
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.
