This sequin black blazer is exceptional! You must see it in person. Pair it with our Fidelity Denim or a taupe mini skirt for New Years. $128
How adorable is this high-waisted skirt? Style it with a simple white tee or dress it up with a pair of heels and a belt.

See you soon!

picky girl Named "Best Of" by Minnesota Monthly

We had a blast last night at the "Best Of" party put on by Minnesota Monthly. We want to thank Minnesota Monthly for naming us Best Women's Boutique in the Twin Cities and for their continued support! If you didn't get a chance to read the very nice article by the oh-so-cute Fashion Editor, Katie Dohman, here's what it said...

"Thank you, Elizabeth Varghese, for being the picky owner. Thank you for opening up shop on Grand Avenue, and for topping yourself every year. Thank you for showcasing local design talent- and not just one token designer. Thank you for maintaining such a well-edited mix, and for showing us what our closet should look like. Thank you for considering price, but not sacrificing quality. And most important, thank you for always being honest when we step out of the dressing room and ask for your opinion."

We thank YOU, Minnesota Monthly, for being so garsh darn sweet, putting on a great party and producing a killer magazine time and time again.
