Though you won’t find the most individual of pieces at Frugalista—these are the last few season’s worth of work outfits, after all—the shop supplies many a day-job holder with respectable and affordable officewear. Merchandise is separated by store, with racks upon racks of Washington staples like Ann Taylor and Banana Republic. If you’re lucky, you might stumble upon the D.C. thrift shop unicorn: the Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress.
