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!
