The Hive: Sweet Fashion Finds

Costa Mesa Boutique Pique
By: Erin Hall @ Boutiquing

The Hive, the newest addition to The Lab in Costa Mesa, is the new buzz on the streets. Why? The owner, previous buyer for The Habit, chose to create a warm environment that focuses on exceptional customer service while delivering a unique shopping experience. And honey, The Hive delivCentury Gothicent of a pixie garden blooming with fashionable fancies, everywhere I turned I was wowed with delight.

From gold studded Love Stitch frocks, sultry silk maxi dresses by Glam, vibrant hued tops by Collective Concepts, romantic ruffles from Esley and a selection of purses and clutches that looked far more expensive than their $26-48 price tags, it is obvious The Hive will keep you coming back for more sweet treats.

For the ultimate experience, ask for Risa to show you around The Hive. Her warm personality and genuine love for the store will eliminate any previous opinions you have of encountering only snobby sales associates.

The Hive carries a fabulous selection of very affordable jewelry (necklaces and earrings under $26), Lollia candles and perfumes, the latest trendsetting shoes, eco friendly green products and they even have a Vintage section that offers hand picked one of a kind pieces.

  1. This place is amazing!

    I was able to buy my wife the perfect anniversary present with the help of the courteous and professional staff.

  2. I was so sad to see the Habit leave the LAB. You can imagine what a nice surprise it was to find the Hive on my last visit to CM. :)
