    Love this store. Such a great range-you can find something for the weekend, work and special occasions, lots of great designers from Gypsy to Rebecca Taylor. Really fun jewelry too. I thought the staff were quite helpful and almost like one on one stylists who helped me find what I was looking for and recommended items for my body type and personal style. Definitely my new go to boutique!
