On the edge

I feel like we're on the edge of something great in D.C. A shop here, a boutique there. A new spa, a new salon.

And then there's the new Chevy Chase. Pretty near apopleptic when I saw the Jimmy Choo signage.

But at the same time, it makes me sad. It somehow worked for me to be a little different in a city of conservative. But now that "they've" arrived, does it mean that Jimmy Choo is conservative? Now, really, I don't expect to see Hill staffers hobbling along in stilettos, but it all makes me a little nervous. Thrilled - but a little nervous. I like the hunt for "that which no one else had." Do you think it'll go away?
