Meeps style



I'm so excited to share the outfit that I styled as part of a recent collaboration with The President Wears Prada and Meeps, one of my favorite DC area vintage stores. The afternoon was pretty much my ideal: playing with the most enviable selection of vintage pieces in Meeps and Treasury Vintage owner Cathy's equally cool and enviable apartment (she's got a record collection like you've never seen!). This statuesque, open-backed dress was one of said pieces. It's rare to find such an elegant piece that's so easily dressed down with sandals and so comfortable in hot weather.





I'm also excited that Meeps will be reopening this week! I was able to get a sneak peak of the new space and I love the layout. The new store has a stage area that will host a variety of performing arts - such a cool concept! Here are the details for the opening party this Thursday:

  15. Great dress. There was a consignment shop in Cleveland that doubled as an art studio and it was attached to a chilli restaurant. Unfortunately it closed. Sounds like a cool store.
