Field Trip: Annie Creamcheese

3279 M Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20007
(202) 298-5555

Annie Creamcheese is So.  Much.  Fun.  I'm serious!  I wandered into the store on a rainy, dreary day and was met with a fun atmosphere and friendly associates.  They even bent the rules and allowed me to take photos so I could give you a peek into the store.

There are two sides to this store.  On the right side is the "mod" side, where you'll find less expensive items.  On the left is the "couture" side, which is just that.  The couture side is full of high-quality vintage, ranging from bedazzled dresses fit for Cher to preppy frocks.  Anything from the late 40s on is game on this side of the store.

On the right side of the store, there's a mix of vintage and contemporary styles at more moderate prices.  There are a few men's items, but trust me when I say this is a store for us, girls. 

There were a few sales going on when I visited, with discounts available on both winter gear and new spring styles.  The associates told me that Annie Creamcheese also supports up and coming designers, so you'll see some new clothes on the racks. 

Make an appointment if you have a closet full of smocks and frocks you'd like to turn in for cash.  Annie Creamcheese even offers store credit for consignment, so if you just want to update your wardrobe, you can put that credit to work.

Annie Creamcheese also has a second location in Las Vegas.  Just one more place to visit when I get to enjoy some travels!

Seriously, stop into Annie Creamcheese next time you're in Georgetown.  This stuff is beautiful.

After the jump....some delicious photos.

 Dreary day outside....

Bright, shiny day inside!

This dress and accompanying belt are gorgeous.  But relax, because you can't afford them.  The belt alone was more than $100!  (This is why they're on the mannequin, kids.)

The mod side of the store has a few bargain bins for those of you who enjoy the hunt.  This really tasteful tee shirt provides a shoutout to my lovely anchor girls!

Too cute and perfect for spring.

Dries van Noten skirt with exposed side zipper.  Totally cute if you have the several hundred dollars for it (at least it was 50% off!)

Some summery fabrics for the men.

Hats hats hats!
