It’s no secret that I love shopping online – nothing beats the ease and flexibility. But sometimes I yearn for live-perusing and friendly chats with the stylish owners of my favorite local boutiques. It’s such a treat to spend a couple hours at one of these D.C. shops learning about new designers, unique merchandise, and seeing what goodies they have stashed away just for me (can you tell I’m a regular?).
So, on a recent rainy summer day, I did just that – and compiled for you the best accessories, summer jackets, and shoes from these four awesome boutiques and although I may have bought a few of the items for myself, I left a couple treats behind for you (vintage Chanel flats anyone?).
