Have no fear. If you aren't ready to do anything other than browse the clothes, there are plenty of accessories that will keep you distracted and inspired for your shopping spree.
The clothes at Helena's are fabulous, whether you are pregnant with #2 or #3 or #4, or you need to add to your work or date night wardrobe, there is really something for everyone here.
You will see brands you know and perhaps a few you don't including some from Maine and Canada. You can accessorize the wardrobe you already have with a soft and light scarf or some modern or whimsical jewelry. There are many cute bags and wallets, as well.
So hire a babysitter or tell your significant other you need a couple hours to yourself and head over to Helena's. Maybe the first visit is just a browse, but after you have had time to look with no one tugging at your sleeves or stirring from their nap in the stroller, you will remember what it is like to shop for yourself again. And, you'll be supporting a wonderful local Arlington business.
