Nana Opens

Wherein a Girl Loves Cake and Fashion at Nana The lovely Nana boutique had its grand opening this past Saturday. And what an opening!

Charm City Cakes created a dessert for the opening that captured the energy of Nana while depicting clothing found in the store.

I didn't realize that it was a real cake at first! The detailing was extraordinary. See that belt that is 2nd from the left?

It's based on a real belt that is in the store. (Third one from the right.)

More cake goodness:

Owner Jackie Flanagan & her staff were all looking fabulous (as usual!):

Nana carries a variety of women's apparel, but I was most intrigued by the Preloved designs. Preloved creates new clothing out of reclaimed vintage fabrics.

A focus on utilizing reclaimed materials means each garment is one-of-a-kind.

Nana also carries vintage clothing

and items for kids.

The thing I appreciated most was a sign hanging in the center of the store.

It says, "There is no doubt a new dress is a help under all circumstances."

A help, indeed.

Check out Nana at 3068 Mount Pleasant Street, NW.
