Trendy Tuesday: Head Scarves

This is one of my favorite warm weather trends, dear readers. A head scarf is a beautiful thing. Coming in a wide array of colors and textures, these little additions can effortlessly elevate a plain outfit. Not to mention, could there be an easier way to quickly disguise dirty hair? I don’t think so. A […]


#TrendyTuesday: Palazzo Pants

Who remembers the upsurge of knit gauchos in the early 2000s? That was, of course, after they made their original debut in the 1960′s and 1970′s.

I’ve conquered grad school, moved three times, and opened my own shop. I’ve visited Goodwill locations in Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio, and all over the Mid-Atlantic. And if I look […]

Shop with us from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Pepco Edison Place Gallery, which is basically our home away from home. It’s a roomy space just steps from the Gallery Place Metro […]

This Land

When you think of Lands’ End clothing, what do you think of? I remember mail-order turtlenecks, jumpers, and holiday catalogs full of puppies on toboggans. But maybe I’m stuck in the 90s. Lands’ End has kept up with modern fashion and might surprise you with its style. For instance! Here’s a Lands’ End dress available […]
