A winner will be determined at random on Friday November 30th.
At the beginning of September, Dirty Richmond quietly celebrated its 3 year anniversary. It’s amazing what originally started as two friends sitting in the middle of the VCU campus every day in-between classes 3 years ago has lead to.
There’s a few things in the works but for now, I’m going to take sometime off from daily posting. A month? A few months? I’m not sure but I plan to be back to regular posting in the future.
What’s the cause of this? I was super lucky and was able to make a career change to exactly what I want to be doing. In the mean time, I’m still blogging at brianmcdinosaur.tumblr.com.
Taking a break from our normal blog schedule to show you this!
Richmond’s own, Angela Bacskocky, will debut her fall collection at Need Supply Co. this Friday from 6-8pm. The collection, Nest, deals with themes of isolation juxtaposed with feelings of comfort and made completely of natural fibers.

Currently in Chicago, taking a moment to be a proper tourist in Millennium Park.
A Gatsby Afternoon in Forrest Hill Park.
It was on one of those final days of summer when the heat becomes a little less unbearable but a parasol or boat hat would not be an unusual accompaniment to help in blocking the sun. Well, they would be unusual on many other circumstances. However, on such a day, the Art Deco Society of Virginia welcomed guests from Richmond, as well as Newport News and Washington D.C., to the lawn of Forrest Hill Park to attend a Gatsby Afternoon Picnic. Taking sartorial inspiration from the jazz age, picnickers and guests enjoyed a time transcendent afternoon.
The Art Deco Society of Virginia is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of awareness of the Commonwealth’s rich art deco history though fashion, music, art and architecture. For more information on membership and monthly events, please visit their website and facebook group.
