FASHIONETTE QUERY: The clutch on my Pathfinder officially went out on the Thursday before Memorial Day. I am now faced with a serious dilemma. Should I pay the $905 to repair Green Hornet? Or, should I keep my holiday travel plans and join my girls in Miami Beach for the weekend?
SIMONE: While it may seem cool to ditch the truck and rely solely on public transportation or bike shares like your new neighbors, we caution you to think twice before abandoning your ride. Recall that your nieces live in Upper Marlboro, 8 miles from the nearest train; your mother lives on top of one of the highest hills in the District; and the red line rarely works on the weekends. Why not get the truck fixed and spend the remainder of the weekend lounging by Vida’s luxe rooftop pool? The water is perfect and the bar is divine. Sand is over rated, darling. Astro turf is the future! VIDA FITNESS | 1612 U Street, NW
