Wild Women Wear Red ... Closing?!

Hi Darlings:

I was surprised to find out last week that Wild Women Wear Red is Closing its doors on May 31st. It seems like every year a favorite store on U St. is closing. Granted this could be for many reasons - as I am told one of the owners of WWWR, Toddre is planning to travel and the other owner Bill will be starting his own mens fashion line. Both future projects sound exciting as I am sure the mens line will be something to look forward to in the future, however, these sudden changes do raise eyebrows and sometimes begs the question is U St loosing its "soul" or has gentrification created the option for other stores to move in and a broaden the realm of the U? I hope the later part of the question is a reality and we get more stores like 4NXC and Pink November, for example.

I continued to ponder this question as I visited the store on Sunday. All items including decorations are on sale for at least 50% off, at most 75% off. Shoes that were once almost a thousand dollars are now about $200. Earrings that were $75 are now $35. You may find that statement Spring/Summer piece so try not to wait until May 31st for your next visit to the store at 1512 U St., NW.

Hugs and besos.
