Look of the Week: Spring Essentials from Local Boutiques
Everyone shops online these days, but that’s no excuse to not shop local. We pulled from six local boutiques' online couterparts and found some excellent spring essentials.
Known for their edgy-meets-minimalist aesthetic, Acrimony has a very established online boutique. It’s hard to resist their new stuff, but their online sale is a must-browse.
Known for their hip-kitschy ways and DJed-happy-hour-shopping-parties (whew!), Shotwell is a force to be reckoned with. If you can’t stop by the shop to party, be sure to get the goods online.
At Azalea, in store and online, you’ll find a slew of emerging designers you’ve never heard of (but now love), in addition to your old favorites.
From Dries van Noten to local favorite Martha Davis, Gimme Shoes has it all. We melt.
Every time we walk into BellJar, we fall in love again. We admit their online shop doesn't compare to the boutique experience, but perusing the flea market finds and killer jewelry collection online is always a nice office break.
Candystore Collective is our secret weapon for masterly gifts. Their e-boutique features select swoon-worthy picks from the store.
