Consignment Finds – The Bird – 1.26.17

Dress by Tory Burch; Purse by Judith Leiber (vintage); Earrings by J.Crew; Jacket by Banana Republic; Boots by Kate Spade (old)

Politiquette Tip:

Shopping at consignment stores is a great way to expand your wardrobe on a budget.  It is also a way to find unique pieces that you won’t find anywhere else.  I found the featured Judith Leiber bag at 2nd Time Around in Georgetown and I absolutely love it.

About the Art: Gean Carlos Martinez is a visual artist from the Dominican Republic. He immigrated to the US, and his early teens quickly gravitated toward graffiti art. An avid student of style Martinez has participated in dozens of public murals and served as an assistant artist to many of the District’s most well-known muralists. Martinez serves as Sargent at Arms for the Double Down Kings graffiti crew.

Politiquette Tip:

Happy Hour is a great time to try out a new restaurant.  You can check out the vibe, often get specials and you don’t have to fully commit to a meal.
