You know how to put your money where your mouth is. Hoots and hollers over your last shopping spree earned you the nickname Clothes Hoarse.
But Uesa Robinson’s home-run vintage clothing shop could leave you speechless.
Set in her brick-lined Capitol Hill row house, Robinson’s by-appointment-only boutique contains rooms of treasures: midcentury cocktail dresses, boudoir-ready marabou slippers, and even ’60s swim caps.
Robinson prowls estate sales and secret sources for brocade car coats, hardly-worn Chanel pumps, and Yves Saint Laurent anything.
If you don’t have time to visit, her new site stocks an ever-expanding selection of current merchandise. She donates a portion of all proceeds to a charity helping Kenyan school children.
See? Your clothes can be a workhorse, too.
