This is the third post in our monthly series “Running Mates,” showcasing chic comrades of N&P for their sartorial smarts and their enterprising insight. This month, we caught up with Guest of a Guest’s DC editrix Sophie Pyle. 

Third-generation Washingtonian Sophie Pyle was once known around town as the feisty brunette on “Blonde Charity Mafia.” She’s now at the helm of the DC bureau of society snapshot site Guest of a Guest. Sophie describes her style as “preppy with an edge.” Here, she pairs classic staple pieces with trendy accents, like framing an Ann Hand pin with shabby chic hair, and letting leather bracelets peek out from under her cashmere Brooks Brothers coat.
