Violet Boutique
2439 18th St., NW; 202-621-9225

A boutique experience even an intern can afford, Julie Egermayer’s new Adams Morgan shop, Violet, has a firm grasp on twentysomething style. Flirty, fun floral tops, one-shoulder dresses (often $45 and under), and notice-me costume jewelry come in bright patterns and colors. Brands include Lush, Ark & Co., Everly, Collective Concepts, and Solemio. Now you can pick up an outfit for less than your bar tab at one of the nearby nightspots.
