This weekend, we (as in me and my Butler + Claypool cohorts) will be popping up @Studio 1469 for a SS WEEKEND POP-UP (FACEBOOK DETAILS HERE). Spring/summer merchandise + handmade jewelry and accessories and surprises. Music! Impromptu dancing! Booze, probably!
Your closet needed this.
Details: 1469 Harvard Street Rear, alley off 15th Street, between Harvard St and Columbia Road.
The other weekend we all got together for a styling shoot at Lincoln Park on the Hill. Here’s the result, with sneak peeks of some of the merch in store!
When the Filene’s Basement near Farragut North Metro stop shuttered I wondered where the working women of downtown Washington would get their retail therapy (nothing like blowing off a little work steam with an inexpensive pair of shoes or pair of tights!). Well, now we’ve got our answer and it opened today in the former Borders space: Nordstrom Rack at 1800 L Street, NW (M-F 9-8; Sat 10-6; Sun 12-5).
Temptations on deck: Kate Spade bags and jewelry, Cole Haan and Coach shoes, labels like Trina Turk, Calvin Klein, lots of fun Betsy Johnson accessories, and worth stopping in to scoop up discounted products from Phyto, Fekkai, and Bliss.
Good to know: the pricier labels (both clothes and shoes) are up front, less expensive merch is in the back. Ladies shoes range from size 4 to 12.keep looking »

The next Butler + Claypool vintage shopping event has been planned! This time we’ve partnered up with our friends Kristen and Erin from Ginger Root, debuting their new, expanded space upstairs. Very proud of them – it wasn’t all that long ago that I’d bring in clothes for their expert tailoring in a spare room in Kristen’s apartment.
May 12, 12-6. 1530 U Street upstairs. As always, expect unique vintage finds for him + her and socializing with great friends.keep looking »
