As adults, many of us have turned our consumaholic buzz into a full-blown addiction, crippling ourselves with car payments, mortgages, label whoring and credit limits we just can't afford. So it's extra-sweet indeed when you shop at Greektown's Wash Up & Brush. Filled with quick-hit accessories, jazzy jewellery, fragrant bath-time goodies and neat little purses, Susan Drysdale's and hairstylist Marc Mittenburg's boutique-slash-hair-salon is the ultimate shopper's fix, especially when you need to score a buyer's rush or just some killer highlights without driving your spouse or any other concerned parties to knife your plastic.
WU&B's picks: Matt & Nat vegan bags, from $55, and wallets from $25; necklaces, bracelets and earrings, $18-$36, and rings, $22, all by Foxy Originals; MOP (Modern Organic Products) organic-based shampoos, conditioners and styling products $16 and up.
Look for: 20 per cent off all jewellery this weekend (August 12 to 15); Matt & Nat boots hit the shelves in September.
Hours: Tuesday to Friday 11 am to 7 pm, Saturday 10 to 7 pm, Sunday 1 to 5 pm.
