A New Vintage Haven Has Emerged!
ATFDC Contributor Beth Beru
If there are two things I love more than my family, friends and God himself it would be food and fashion. So anytime these two cross paths I feel like it’s love at first sight. And my friends I am in love! The new love of my life is Via Gypset. A two floor vintage consignment shop with quality pieces for both men and women. My secret haven of fantastic fashion finds is new to the Adams Morgan area gracing Calvert St. a little over a month ago. Owner Isabella Polles has brought her admiration for fashion to this “ vintage and consignment retail showroom that seeks to inspire individuals to tap into their creative side by expressing themselves through elements based upon fashion, art, style, and design.” The first floor features more high end pieces such as Gucci and Escada for our high-rollers. The second floor offers a greater variety of pieces for both men and women under $100. There is something for everyone and I encourage vintage seekers to stop by.
And after a few hours of shopping, a girl gets hungry. No need to look far because right below Via Gypset is Cafe Sorriso, a bar, pizzeria and restaurant also owned by Isabella and her family (their Nutella gelato is heavenly)! This family-affair cafe is great for a small bite or if you want to take a stab at the all-day breakfast, the well-crafted menu is a win when it comes to a good meal.
Normally I would keep this boutique a secret but I think this is a love I am willing to share. So make a date of it and head over to Via Gypset for everything from clothes to shoes and accessories. Walk-in this showroom only to leave feeling like you have found your new closet of revolving clothes. Great pieces you’ll love to show off but don’t want to share. These pieces are just that great!
