Upstairs on 7th, located at 1299 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC which is five minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a luxe boutique focused on women’s designer couture fashion and accessories.

Upstairs on 7th is owned by Ricki Peltzman, who began her fashion career as a buyer for a department store. When she moved to Washington, DC in 2003, she realized she couldn’t find anywhere to shop for high-end style – so she created her own destination, which is more popular now than it has ever been.

Peruvian Connection, located at 950 F St NW #102, Washington, DC which is six minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a women’s clothing shop featuring handmade apparel and accessories crafted from Peruvian fibers.

Peruvian Connection was launched in 1976 by mother and daughter team Biddy and Annie Hurlbut after inspiration took hold halfway across the globe. While researching anthropology in Peru, Annie, a 19-year-old Yale student, fell in love with extraordinary hand-woven mantas and ponchos she discovered in the markets of Cuzco, the ancient capital of the Incas.
