Shopping for lingerie can be like finding a needle in a haystack: even when you think you've found what you're looking for, it is actually just a really shiny piece of hay. Today's Groupon tilts the odds of a successful fashion quest in your favor: for $50, you get $125 worth of lingerie, clothing, and accessories at Celine de Paris, just steps away from Georgetown's day spas and restaurants.
Celine de Paris exudes the high-fashion vibe of a Paris runway in a low-key boutique setting stocked with imported European fashions. The shop's line of exclusive French lingerie ($40–$400) can make the body look more naked than naked with an array of bodices, garters, and little strappy things whose purposes are still a source of archaeological debate. Breathtaking Marie Antoinette jewelry ($75–$1,000)—including custom design pieces—tantalizingly sparkles like freshly won Super Mario stars from the display case. The shop's wide variety of accessories ($75–$500) can candy arms with handbags by Kura Design or bonbon nose bridges with designer sunglasses, while the chilly autumn winds may prompt you to slip your stems into a pair of highly enviable designer jeans ($95). Owner Sharon Amar knows high fashion like the back of his own designer gloves, and he will work with you to find the right fit and combination of items for upcoming puppeteer galas, unattractive kitten benefits, or bouts of prolonged moon-honeying.
Celine de Paris
When a customer walks into Celine de Paris, owner Sharon Amar hopes they feel like they’ve just stepped off a private jet into a boutique located in a swanky European metropolis. To cultivate this chic vibe, he fills his boutique with upscale lingerie, clothing, and accessories culled from overseas retailers such as A jour and Hristy. Amar and his staff ensure a personalized shopping experience by pairing each customer with apparel that flatters their body type, such as gowns with deep-v necklines and sheer blouses that reveal actual hearts of gold. The boutique also assists customers in finding the perfectly fitting bra by taking measurements and letting customers try on various styles.
