This post will be the first of a list with all my favorite places, either in Washington DC or New York City.
It’s either places I’ve known and loved since I lived there, or places I discovered during this trip.
I HAD to start with the shop Mustard Seed, which is my all time favorite place to shop in the United States! It’s the kind of place, I can not not go when I come to DC. Even if I’m in town for a day and that the store is at the opposite side of the city from my house!
Mustard Seed in a second hand shop AND vintage shop, because yes there is a difference. Second hand clothes are clothes that are maximum 5 years old, on the other hand, Vintage clothes are clothes from early decades like 20’s, 30’s until the 90’s.
They sell either designer brands and big chaines (H&M, Zara, F21,…) for ridiculous prices!
Let me show you a few items I scored in the past:
Seven for All Mankind jeans – Bootcut (the original cut and orginial wash). Never worn (or at least you can’t tell), and I paid 24$.
I found this vintage jacket 4 years ago, and it has been one of my favorite item in my wardrobe since then. I paid 10$
This is probably one of my greatest find, and sometimes I still can’t believe I found it, and got it before anyone would. It’s a TIBI dress, and I paid 40$
This year again, I went crazy in the shop, checking out every single item, and trying on a bunch
I went home with 4 things, including a pair of shoes.
Can you guess what I bought?
Want a tip? I’ve talked to you about one of them in a previous post 😉
I’ll show you the rest of it as soon as I have the time to make an article about my USA purchases!
