Finding unique boutiques that fit your fashion persona perfectly is a coup, especially if that boutique is online — so you can shop 24/7.
When a fashion lover finds that one unique boutique that clicks with her style, she makes it “hers.” For the fur lover, the goth girl or the old-fashioned lace-loving romantic-at-heart, finding a store that always has just the right thing is truly a coup.
Here are some boutiques with a quirky, singular personality that just might sync with your own fashionista persona.
Peruvian Connection is a boutique for “nomads and romantics” in search of artisan apparel. Seeking luxury alpaca, Peruvian pima cotton or Vicuña fleece in unique items that aren’t “off the rack”? This is the clothing store you’ll never want to leave. Fortune have it … it’s online: Peruvian Connection never closes. Peruvian Connection was inspired by the anthropology research of the co-founder, and features exotic natural fabrics in an array of soft and unique – and incredibly fashionable – clothing that will become your romantic at heart go-to pieces.
New Age goth
Pyramid Collection offers an enchanting collection of apparel for gothic beauties. If you were meant to live in another century, the Renaissance dresses, tunics and jewelry are perfect to transport you. I’m thinking that if “new age,” “goddess” or “steampunk” define your fashion outlook, then don’t search any further. A few pieces added to your wardrobe – like lace up boots or a floor length velvet cape – or an entire fashion persona are simple at this truly unique boutique.
Madison Los Angeles
When you’re ready for the hottest looks straight from L.A., Madison Los Angeles is the boutique to shop. They have it all, from stunning dresses and jackets to sizzlingly-stylish pants and tops. This isn’t a California-style boutique. It’s the real thing, fresh from their shops in Brentwood, Malibu and of course, Los Angeles proper.
It’s L.A., so of course there’s a lot of black. Yummy rich mysterious black. But there’s also enough color to satisfy the hue-loving shoppers, too. Don’t live near L.A.? Fear not. You can shop their collection from New York, Miami or the middle of a small town.
Fabulous Furs has the market cornered on elegant and classical style. The luxurious faux furs – ranging from stoles and wraps to full-length coats – are guilt-free providing an alternative to real animal fur. Stock up on furry hats, scarves, and legwarmers for the whole family. Warm your feet on a shag rug or snuggle up with your favorite book and a fur blanket for a cozy afternoon safe from blizzards. Fabulous Furs’ timeless designs are essential to a warm and stylish winter.
ASHRO is your destination for ethnic clothing. Known for their Afrocentric vibe, ASHRO has pieces that are straight off the runways of Paris, Milan, and New York. Spice up your wardrobe with a caftan. ASHRO’s colorful caftans are inspired by traditional African prints.
Or blow away the competition in the boardroom with a suit that will stun them speechless. Can you say “Tiger Lady”? Ethic and daring or buttoned down and powerful — this boutique has it all. And these fresh finds would make unique additions to any fashionista’s wardrobe. Get going and celebrate your inner diva!
