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.
