It's time to update our list of the top 38 indie shops in Washington, D.C., in which we celebrate the independent, local boutiques that make shopping in D.C. special. For the Indie 38, we're focusing on places to shop for clothing and accessories, and to keep the numbers more manageable, we've excluded consignment and vintage shops. For this edition, we're bidding a fond farewell to soon-to-close Zoe Boutique and hello to the new ANTHOM shop, which just opened at Mosaic District. Read Wall, EmporiumDNA, and Caramel are also newbies to the Indie 38 this time around.
Click through to check out our list of 38 boutiques, listed in order from north to south. Is there a shop you'd like to see on the Indie 38? Let us know in the comments and we'll consider it for the next update. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
