At Via Gypset, a new consignment boutique, the brainchild of Washingtonian Isabella Polles, you’ll find items combining urban chic with a bohemian aesthetic. Think vintage sequin shifts and bright patterns. The shop also offers a limited collection of home accessories. And because shopping can lead to hunger pangs, satisfy them downstairs at Cafe Sorriso, a Polles-family-owned enterprise. Noon-8 p.m. Tuesday-Friday. 2311 Calvert St. NW. 202-803-2874.
