Alice in Wonderland

Where can I wear this? It's a question we here a lot here at the Boutique. The answer: it's not about where you're going. Clothing can create a mood or help you express a thought or feeling. Let your ensemble paint your outsides to match your insides, and go where you may...

Sugar and Spice

From backalley to Buckhead

Style travels... an outfit that has flow and ease can take you in and out of many a social situation. A skirt suit at work becomes a fitted blazer over a crisp button down and jeans. Just changing a piece or two can lessen the stress of transition between at work and out on the town.

Hello Tokyo

Japanese street style is as fun as it gets... fashion rules aren't meant to be broken -- they're meant to be completely, totally, fabulously ignored. You're the canvas and your pallet won't skip on a single color...

Casual Cool

Carrie asked Barbara: "How do you want me to dress you today?" Barbara answered: "I don't know... easy? Girly but casual? I'm still in Texas mode... casual cool?" Carrie combined stripes and florals--a dreamteam that's an easy way to go chic. Layering different shades of the same color makes for a warm, inviting ensemble. And the chocolate booties add the kiss of sex appeal that vamps up the earthy, understated look.
