Washington, D.C. Shopping??

Nana's

When it comes to shopping in DC, I am usually excited to go to Georgetown or Pentagon City Mall because of the large variety of nationwide fashion franchises. When in reality I love the idea of shopping at little boutiques allowing myself the chance to be a little more unique in what I own. A couple of weeks ago, a friend and I went walking down the famous U Street Corridor, here in Washington D.C. and I came a cross a couple of nice boutiques. Unfortunately, it’s nowhere I can shop because they both cater to the female shopper but I’m not here to write about things that only i can relate to.

First, there was moojoo ken, meaning unconditional in Japanese. Tucked away in a tiny row house on the corridor, moojoo ken offers everything from clothing to handbags to jewelry. With every moojoo ken original, there is in some way shape or form the inclusion of their exotic emblem tying each piece together. Here’s a look at there store and some of their products.

Next there was Nana, a store for the savvy shopper. Jackie Flanagan opened Nana in April 2003 with her grandmother in mind. Flanagan says her grandmother has such fashion smarts and she has always looked up to her grace and glamour. Out of the two, Nana was the more appealing to my eye being that I’m really into the unique yet sheek look on a female. Look for yourself.
