Best of 2005: Swankiest Shopping Address

The Rodeo Drive of the DC Metro area

A Jimmy Choo boutique opens this month in the new Collection at Chevy Chase (5481 Wisconsin Ave.; 240-223-1102). Choo's stilettos and boots are up there with Manolo Blahniks in style. In February, Tiffany & Co. moves into the Collection with huge new windows–the better to count the carats. Other neighbors will include Gucci, Bulgari, Louis Vuitton, and Co-op Barneys New York. It's Rodeo Drive East–without the attitude.Washingtonian staffers contributing to this section were Cristina Abello, Susan Baer, Susan Davidson, Ken DeCell, Rebecca Dreilinger, Kim Isaac Eisler, Mary Clare Fleury, Kimberly Forrest, Brooke Lea Foster, Garrett M.
