This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.
XOXO Photo Booth, Photography And Event Services rents out its photo booths for two-, three-, four-, or five-hour blocks, which to offer ample photo opportunities for a variety of events. The booths arrive with a photographer, a backdrop, and props such as feather boas, silly hats, and novelty glasses. If desired, the staff can tailor the props to the occasion and can even customize the backdrop to match a pre-submitted JPEG image. Their party services also offer photography, a mobile salon, and chocolate fountains for Willy Wonka-themed weddings.
The setting and subject may be different, but all of HQT Photography's photos share one common element: a smiling face. The photographer's crisp family photos capture the authentic smiles of kids and parents alike, and snapshots of partygoers encapsulate the glamour of the event. For each shoot, the shutterbug calls upon seven years of experience taking photos and portraits.

Former Masters champion Fred Couples has competed on golf courses around the globe. So he had plenty of inspiration to draw from in designing Westfields Golf Club, which incorporates Northern Virginia's unique topography into its 18 holes. Amid the rolling hills, natural wetlands, and towering beech and oak trees that pepper the course, a lake looms to the left of the signature third hole as players take their tee shots. Other features make the course unmistakably Virginian—on hole 13, for instance, a Civil War burial site comes into play on the right side. After taking in all the course has to offer, players can relax and untangle their coiled hips by visiting the clubhouse's indoor and outdoor dining areas.
