Spotlight: Columbus Boutique – Jolie Occasions

Location: 864 N. High St. Columbus, OH 43215;

If you read my last ‘Bloglight’ post, you know that I love boutiques. I think the time and effort that boutique owners put into curating the perfect collection to put in their shop is so special and impressive. I’ve never personally owned a small business, but I imagine it’s no easy feat. I would imagine that the success of a boutique is highly dependent on location. High Street in the Short North is full of small businesses and many of them sell clothing and accessories. It seems like a very competitive market and a difficult one to stand out in at that.

Jolie Occasions absolutely stands out. The first time I shopped there was last Summer. My mom came to visit me and we decided to take a walk down high street to explore my new neighborhood. As we were walking past Jolie, I noticed the adorable display in the window. There were three or four mannequins all dressed in a different outfit. I was immediately drawn in. I ended up buying a pair of pants and left happy as a clam!

I stopped in a few weeks ago and picked up what I’ll call my new go-to summer dress or brunch outfit. I love this one. The ruffled top/sleeve, the cut, and the fit all make this dress one of my favorites.

I try to shop small whenever I can, the price is often a bit higher than the major retailers, but you ALWAYS find something unique. I know that a hundred other girls won’t show up to an event wearing the same dress as I am!

These are just a few of the items I love right now at Jolie Occasions!

Spotlight: Columbus Boutique – Clover On High

One of the things I love about living in Columbus is being so close to the Short North. The Short North is home to tons of wonderful small businesses. I especially love boutiques and luckily for me, the short north is full of them.

Clover On High

Clover on High is located in the Short North

I always find something I love in this store! I’ve purchased a few pieces at Clover and they never disappoint. The price point is fair for a boutique and the clothing is great quality. If you’re a local, you can visit their shop at 636 N. High St., Columbus, OH. If not, check out their website here!

I picked this dress up a few weeks ago and I love it because it’s great for work and play. It fits TTS (I got a small).

My husband is also my photographer 🙂

I love a good sale and enjoy shopping at major retailers as well (as you all know from my previous posts and instagram, but I think it’s so important to support small/local businesses!
