Vintage clothing, unlike chocolate-flavored soda and eight-tracks, is functionally fashionable and timeless. Wear a classic cut with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $75 worth of designer and vintage apparel at Annie Creamcheese Boutique in Georgetown.
Annie Creamcheese's style mavens stock more than 5,000 celebrity-approved pieces of women's clothing and accessories daily in the boutique's 3,200-square-foot showroom. Scope Annie's virtual look book for a peak at hot trends, such as bohemian chic, modern metallic, and the emperor's barely there. Rock out in a new Double Zero floral romper ($49) or recant designer Betsey Johnson's baby-doll-dress look (last season, $99). Annie's voluptuous vintage collection hosts relics of fashion history, including a number of '80s- and '90s-inspired party dresses by Victor Costa ($249+). Add well-aged bling to collector pieces, such as Chanel earrings ($429) and a Louis Vuitton Speedy ($549), with authentically antiqued panache.
Annie Creamcheese's evolving list of looks has hugged the curves of some of Hollywood's fashion elite. Gossip-magazine regulars, such as Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham, and Jessica Alba, have all tapped Annie's inventory before hitting the clubs, world premieres, or a jealous nerve in 43% of grocery-store shoppers.
