Lunchtime Stroll: Current Boutique

One of my favorite things about working from home is using my lunch hour to explore the neighborhood. When deciding where to live in D.C., we asked a ton of friends for suggestions. Most people said Dupont area, others said Arlington, VA and a couple recommended U Street.

After scouring Craigslist for weeks, we found a great one bedroom/one bath on 12th and U and we couldn't be happier with the place. While our rent is a bit pricey (and drastically higher than Miami), location was the most important factor for us when moving. Oh, and finding an apartment building that allows dogs. That was kinda important too...wouldn't want Rusty out on the streets!

The U Street Corridor has so much to offer. Great restaurants and bars. Adorable boutiques and one-of-a-kind vintage shops. Weekend Farmer's Market. Sweet jazz bars and music venues. Lots of people. Cool vibe. And so much more!

During lunch today, I was strolling 14th Street and stopped into Current Boutique. The shop is half consignment/half new. The ladies behind the register were really sweet when I asked if I could take pictures for my blog. Too bad I didn't have my DSLR because there were some awesome finds. Like designer dresses for under $50 bones, funky shoes and purses, and a good selection of coats. I left empty-handed, but know I'll be back the next time I get an urge to do some shopping around my 'hood.
