Defining our own style is not as easy as it sounds. So what is a girl to do when she finally gets a night on the town or wants to add a few trendy looks to her wardrobe? Shop till you drop but not before carving out a plan! As you would plan and budget your weekly meals, plan, budget and create your style for the season. Instead of an entirely new wardrobe edit the pieces in your closet and find your favorites that work with the trends. Then decide which new chic frocks you would like to purchase to infuse your look. My style plan for this spring is traditional with a splash of Bohemian; a new edgy studded T-shirt, I like the sleek looks of a sheath dress, the sexy edge of a one shoulder blouse and the everyday fun in a great Military Inspired Jacket with some fabulously bold bracelets and a few long layered necklaces! Selecting five trendy pieces per season will give your old looks a new style of their own.
Now the question remains where do you shop for such fabulous looks? My passion for a darling boutique is never-ending. Two of the boutiques I covet are Artifact Boutique for Less and Malena’s Vintage Boutique, both located on Gay Street in downtown West Chester, PA. Each boutique offers a uniquely different selection with rare finds under $60. Artifact is a fashion forward boutique that welcomes a new selection to their racks every Thursday & Friday. Creating that one of a kind shopping experience since the assortment changes frequently. Another favorite of mine is Malena’s Vintage Boutique, with Malena herself on hand to assist as your own personal style consultant. This boutique is a fashionista’s treasure for those who prefer an actual skirt from the 50’s instead of today’s 50’s inspired style. Trendsetters not living in the vicinity of these boutiques can quench their shopping fetish for Artifact & Malena’s online.
