Wednesday Picks – the old and the new

We’ve been having so much fun with our “Wednesday Picks” in the last couple months that we decided to include Redeem, another one of our favorite local DC boutiques, in the feature

Despite blizzard-like winds, Cathy and I made our way across the street to play dress-up with Redeem’s lovely owner Lori. She helped us select some really amazing items from her store, some of my favorites were the Bunny and Deer leather puffy brooches by the wildly creative Moriah and Alice of Feral Childe.

Mixing vintage with basics and bold accessories is a daily ritual for some of us, so we thought it would be fun to play with color and proportions for this look. If you are new to this- start with basics you are already familiar with (jeans, t-shirt) and add a simple vintage jacket plus a bold accessory (over-sized pendant, colorful belt). It’s a really easy way to add versatility to your wardrobe.

Vintage English Riding Boots – $175 @ Treasury
Vintage Fur Hat – $48 @ Treasury
Grey Sweater Dress by Kai-aakmann – $129 @ Redeem
