File this under News That Surprises No One: We love to shop. Not necessarily in the movie-montage way, where we jet from store to store buying everything our little hearts desire, à la Cher Horowitz. No, we're more into the leisurely crawl from one favorite shop to the next, a luxurious sojourn that lets us linger over beautiful silhouettes, lush fabrics, and double-take-worthy detailing.The best part? While we're reveling in the casual browsing experience, we usually meet savvy (and super-stylish) employees who share our passion — it is, after all, what they do for a living. So, we've turned our spotlight onto some of the District's coolest boutiques to single out some incredibly chic staffers. Click through to meet our favorites, see their camera-ready looks, and get the scoop on their day jobs. (And don't worry — we'll introduce you to style stars in Maryland and Virginia soon, too!)
