Ladies and Gentleman the time has come… TO GET UGLY!!!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Meeps is celebrating by hosting an Ugly Sweater contest. We want YOU to post pictures of yourselves in your ugliest, loudest, most obnoxious Christmas sweaters & sweatshirts and tag Meeps on our social media (Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram)
THEN On Friday, December 13th we will announce the Winner of the Ugliest Sweater and they will get $50 gift card to the store.
We have hundreds of vintage, one-of-a-kind sweaters, knit vests, and sweatshirts to choose from to start your holiday cheer off right! Leave your shame behind.
Visit us this week and get first dibs on the ugly!
Due to a variety of factors, we can no longer do BUY/SELL/TRADE at Meeps.
However, if you have a collection (10+) of VINTAGE pieces dating from the 1960′s and prior, especially dresses for day and night (embellished, colorful, patterned) you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of items and photos and we will get back to you about setting up an appointment. Although we prefer to only buy 10+ items in one go, extra special items may be reviewed.
As a reminder, NO: furs, new things, stains/damaged goods, etc.
Fall is here along with homecoming season. When we think homecoming and fashion, Howard is the first school to come to mind. We were inspired to do a mini look book to celebrate the week-long celebration of this historic D.C. university and it’s creative and stylish students. Here are some looks styled/photographed by our own Howard student, Shenarri Freeman and modeled by students Rome Miller and Ashley Johnson.
Ashley wears a vintage 1960s eyelet dress w/elbow-length puff sleeves ($62), brown fedora ($24), Meeps handmade brass and clay jewelry ($24).
Vintage flannels are perfect one-of-a-kind street wear staple for the fall – try them buttoned up, opened, or even around the waist. Great for a street wear look. Rome wears 80s flannel ($26), vintage-inspired fashion frames ($15).
Rome wears a face mask fun for Halloween or year-round ($6)!
Rome wears an 80s southwest influence button-down ($26), 70s duffle bag ($26), and vintage snap back ($15).
Rome wears a long-sleeved 80s 7/11 shirt ($26), 80s vest ($36), and snap back ($15), fashion frames ($15)
Ladies rock flannels too! Ashley wears 80s flannel ($26), Meeps made powder-coated U necklace ($32), 1970s deadstock necklace ($22), 70s coca cola hat, 70s beaded purse
It’s getting closer to HALLOWEEN and we’ve got plenty of great costumes! Here’s a band that is no stranger to the dress-up game: OF MONTREAL

This event will also feature free Tarot readings by MORGANA, clairvoyant extraordinaire, between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm. And if that isn’t enough to get you through the door, Pleasant Pops will also be debuting their 2013 line of Hot Pops at our event. We’ll have all the ingredients you need to conjure up a delicious cup of hot chocolate, right there in the store!
DC: we summon you to our store on October 13! Because there’s nothing more terrifying than waking up on October 31 with nothing to wear, right?
MEEPS is back with more great music to transition into our fall season!
Get your dancing shoes ready for these two funky shows! Superchunk, 90s famed American indie rockers play at 9:30 club on 9/29. Har Mar Superstar is a different type of groove – R&B with heavy pop hooks. He plays UHall on 9/30…if you’re lucky, you’ll catch the frontman in his tighty whiteys.
Now for the game! If you would like free tickets either of these shows–guess the decade of this glimmering mini dress in this outfit below:

Join MEEPS this week as we present
EARTHSTAR: A Night of New Age Music and Yoga
September 11 at 8:00 pm (RSVP)
$10 suggested donation to benefit HIPS
MEEPS – 2104 18th St. NW, Washington DC 20009
The solstice is approaching, Meeps fam, and we want to share this cosmic event with you! This Wednesday, get inspired, elevated, and bendy with us at EARTHSTAR. This 90-minute yoga class and new age music experience will be appropriate for all levels, but will lift your spirit to new ones.
We’re providing cosmic new age tunes by Glide, complimentary refreshments by Capital Kombucha, fabulous teachers, and a great cause. Your $10 donation will go in its entirety to support the female, male and transgender sex workers in DC who benefit from HIPS’s amazing work. Since 1993, HIPS has provided a variety of services, education and advocacy to sex workers and the community, and we couldn’t be happier to contribute!
Our experienced, certified teachers will be leading a special flow and yin yoga class to heighten your relaxation. The poses of yin yoga are held longer to target your connective tissues and ligaments, and the pace of the teaching is slower. In honor of the beneficiaries of your donations, our teachers will be focusing on opening the muscles around your hips.
This is not your typical yoga class, friends. This is an opportunity to open up, give back, and expand your soul. Just bring your yoga mat!
Happy Labor Day weekend! Pools are shutting but summer’s far from being over. Come cool off with our 40% off Labor Day sale off most of our Summer stock! Still plenty of gems in stock. And while you are scoopin’ the sales, get the first peep at Fall items, coming in daily.
Calling all comedy lovers, fashion fans, and everyone in between! We’re bringing the laughs to the MEEPS stage on Thursday, August 8th at 9pm courtesy of Adam Friedland + his local comedian pals + a special novelty set by DJ C-Rob (Vitamin C, Future Times crew & discogs).
