SIMONE BUTTERFLY FABULOUS FREELANCE FASHION INVESTIGATOR®
By 2pm on Tuesday I was ready to make my escape from the 3rd floor conference room. Legal meetings for 5 hours straight do nothing but sap my creativity and elongate my “to do” list. After dragging on my vintage Garfinkles faux leopard coat, I braced myself for another 30º March afternoon in the District.
Though I hadn’t eaten lunch, I walked right past Osteria Sette and headed towards Secondi. Paying less than retail is a sure way to reclaim my equilibrium. And who knows, maybe the black knit and tulle Valentino cocktail dress was still where I left her, tucked behind the leather trench coat.
Secondi, perched 42 steps above the Starbucks on Conn and R Street, is one of DC’s premier resale boutiques frequented by women who have made peace with dropping $200+ upon crossing the threshold.
Today I was prepared to take advantage of the 15 day grace period offered by my mortgage company. Some lovely [insert bauble, stiletto, apparel] piece would likewise be late to the 4pm meeting.
