    "Wanderlust" might well be the buzzword for 2012, and it has inspired some of our favorite feasts for the eyes — blogs, inspiration boards, designer collections, and gorg boutiques. D.C. just got its own dose of the jet-set vibe now that Isabella Polles, half of the brother-sister team behind Woodley Park eatery Cafe Sorriso, has opened Via Gypset just upstairs.

    With shoes and couture fashion on the first floor (we spotted an original Karl Lagerfeld — swoon) and a treasure trove of consignment goodies on the second, the beautifully appointed shop has something for everyone in every price range. "I love that the clothes in my boutique tell a story," Polles says. "Whether it’s a 1960s metallic shift dress from Thailand or an incredible 1970s Chloé designed by Karl Lagerfeld, one can imagine a fabulous occasion for which it was worn. Fashion can be about the fantasy of exploration and adventure.”

    Via Gypset should be at the top of your list if you're craving bright patterns, sequined dresses, exquisite belts, and printed skirts. Stop by soon, and you'll get a 15% discount at the café below (we highly recommend the combo of a new dress and a scoop of gelato). We got a first look at the brand-new boutique — click through to see our favorite snapshots.
