For those whose thoughts have turned to holiday parties, today is a good day to check out Violet Boutique's new holiday 2013 lookbook. It's plenty festive, with models wearing the Adams Morgan boutique's party dresses in black, gold, white, and crimson, and a set stocked with flowers from local florists via Bloompop. Shot by D.C. photographer Emma McAlary with art direction by Morgan Hungerford West, view the whole lookbook here at Violet's website, and click through for a few more photos after the jump. · Violet Boutique [Official Site]
