If the vintage shop Annie Creamcheese dresses the rock ’n’ roll, risk-taking college kid, then Pretty People Vintage takes care of the Carrie Bradshaw she’ll grow up to be.

Pretty People owner Annie Lee—a founding partner of Annie Creamcheese in Georgetown—has filled her new venture in Old Town with fun, feminine pieces from every decade. You’ll find 1950s tea dresses, floor-grazing hippie skirts, sparkly ’80s cocktail frocks, Rachel Zoe–worthy jewels, and a small selection of boho-inspired contemporary options.
