    Thank you for explaining how boutiques provide you with unique clothing as they have a very limited selection of items. I love to wear very unique, one of a kind clothing all the time. Maybe I will look into shopping at boutiques to get more unique items.

    It sure was great when you pointed out that boutiques only have a limited amount of clothing selection, so if I ever decide to buy clothes from one, I can be sure that I won’t see anyone wearing the same thing in the next few miles. If that is the case, then I will start looking at boutiques from now on when it comes to the clothes I wear. I remember a few weeks ago when I was walking in the mall, I think I saw at least two others wearing the same clothes as me. I didn’t like it. Anyway, thank you.

    I really like it when you said that one of the benefits of buying clothes from a boutique is that I can be sure that only a limited number of people will have the same clothes that I do. That is something that I really like because I do not appreciate the idea of seeing a couple of people wearing the same clothes that I’m wearing when I go out. It might be a good idea to try boutique shopping the next time I buy clothes. Thanks!

    I agree that the customer service at boutiques is amazing because they can get to know you by name. My sisters are always buying from boutiques and I never understood what made them so special. Since I need a new top for a wedding, I will definitely be looking at boutique’s to find something “one of a kind”.

Palm Print Shorts, Vestique Boutique, Boutique Shopping

Boutique shopping seems to be fizzling out as larger retailers like Nordstrom start to take over the fashion world. Have you heard of Vestique Boutique. 90% of you are probably saying ‘no’ to the computer right now. These shorts have gotten more attention then The Fast & The Furious 7 (or whatever the last one was called). Boutique shopping is expensive, but definitely important.

Vestique Boutique contacted me to wear something of theirs and I immediately jumped on it. Boutique shopping is so important for all of us fashion lovers. The benefits of boutique shopping definitely outweighs the costs.

Why You Should Shop at Boutiques:

1. Boutiques usually have a very limited selection, in a good way. I can buy something at a boutique and know that only a set number of people will own it. Every time I buy something, I never see someone else in it (compared to big retail stores).

2. The customer service at boutiques is always amazing. They know me by name now, and they know my style. They usually pull things aside for me before they sell out, and they have stuff waiting for me when I get there!

3. You get to wear it immediately. There is nothing like instant gratification! When you find a boutique in your area you can just run there after work, before a big event, and grab and go! If you do order it online, most boutiques ship extremely fast.

4. They like to re-promote. They are likely to re-post your photos when you tag them on Instagram to show you some love!

5. They are usually local, and I am a huge advocate of supporting your local ‘mom and pop’ shops. When I googled best boutiques, “Shopping in Dallas” popped up on my first page! I am so lucky that I have some really amazing boutiques nearby!

Some Boutiques I love:

Vestique Boutique– Great customer service, great prices, and they ship stuff to you fast!

Milk & Honey Boutique– My favorite local boutique. The girls in there are so nice and I know I won’t be wearing the same thing as someone else.

Page 6 Boutique: I also like to shop here online. They always have great hats (I LOVE HATS). I am actually wearing one in my Page 6 post from a few weeks ago!
