ENVY Boutique - Where have you been all my life?

Review by: April
Can I be perfectly honest...usually by the time I have boutiqued down Forest Ave. as far as Muse, I have realized that one more stop could land me looking for a second job. What this means is, I have been missing out on ENVY...for 10YEARS!

The whole experience went a little like this...I look to my right...tons of adorable casual wear, perfect for the busy Mom circuit. Pieces by Da-nang, Twisted Heart, and Butterfly Dropout. I look to my left...romantic, artistic options from Rebecca Taylor, floaty pieces from For Life and Liberty, and tons of twelfth street by Cynthia Vincent – a woman who knows a basic need not be basic. Straight ahead was row upon row of great layering pieces by C&C, and tons of denim options.

Like most boutiques these days the SALE racks were amazing, and I found myself wanting to take the time to look at each piece so I wouldn't miss anything. It is unheard of for an independent boutique to have such extensive collections of these fantastic designers and I am starting to think this could be the only place I need to shop for a long time.

After talking with owner Phyllis, and her husband, who are the most approachable, down to earth boutique owners you can imagine, I got the sense that she would do most anything to keep her customers happy. This is a boutique to frequent – their size ranges are great, and whatever the occasion, I would bet the perfect thing is just waiting for you here.

A bit of boutiquing wisdom...this is a large store, with a lot of inventory. Take your time and do a few laps, there are a ton of possibilities everywhere you turn. You can also shop their website and get FREE shipping and 10% off all orders over $100...or pre-shop and pick it up in the store (just let me warn you, you may find some more to add to that shopping bag...).
