Hey Gorgeous! Boutique - Girly Glamour at Gasp-Worthy Prices

Hey Gorgeous! Boutique - Newport Beach, Orange County Boutique Pique
By: Erica Hahn @ Boutiquing

Set the Scene: I hear, "Hey Gorgeous!" but there aren't any cat-calling workers in sight, just a friendly face telling me there is no need to be humble in this happening boutique on Newport Blvd. The bright boutique reflects owner Valerie's bubbly and personal approach to shopping with vibrant turquoise walls, gold accents and homey decor. Amidst ornate mirrors and an over-flowing vanity (reminiscent of every girl's dream dollhouse), Hey Gorgeous! is the perfect place to play dress-up with your gal pals.

Labels We Love: Valerie values quantity when it comes to her closet, so she scours fashion districts across the country to find lesser known labels with big style and puny price tags so you can easily walk out with two outfits for under $100. Don't miss the flirty feminine designer she found through etsy, Rachael Broussard, and her frilly party frocks.

Prepare to Pay:
CLOTHING: $25 to $100
DENIM: long, lean and only $44
SHOES: sky-high heels for under $60
HANDBAGS: $25-$60
JEWELRY: stock up with $5 earrings and necklaces under $25
UNDER $80? Pretty much everything.

You're Invited: Don't miss the Hey Gorgeous! Sex and the City party this SUNDAY! SEE DETAILS>>


Summed Up in a Sentence: Hey Gorgeous! Boutique delivers fashionable finds to savvy stylistas who want to buy now and buy often, without worrying about wearing down the wallet.

Hey Gorgeous! Boutique
1808 Newport Blvd.
Costa Mesa, CA 92727
949.307.2602

Boutiques ON the Beaten Path

By: April Madigan @ Boutiquing

Got kids?
If they are anything like mine you probably find yourself more often in the dairy section of your local grocery store than shopping the racks of your favorite boutique. Last night, as I wandered the aisles of Whole Foods I realized, I could grab the milk- skip the impulse buys in the prepared food section -and hit a great boutique before anyone even noticed I was gone.

And so, here is my list of favorite boutiques that are grocery store adjacent. That’s right, stick to your actual grocery list and spend the money you saved on something pretty just for you… I don’t even think these boutiques would mind if you showed up with the kids in one of those race car carts.

Blue Eyed Girl – San Clemente, Talega Village Center – near Ralph’s

Girl Talk! – Lake Forest, off El Toro Road – near Ralph’s


La Diva & Royalty for Men, Millie, and Trio – Crystal Cove, off PCH near Trader Joe’s

Laguna Supply – Laguna Beach, on Beach St. across from Whole Foods

Little – Laguna Beach, on Ocean Ave across from Whole Foods

Pink Mascara – Irvine, near Trader Joe’s

Rococo
– Dana Point, off Camino Del Avion – next to Monarch Beach Market

Sienna Brown – Corona Del Mar Plaza, across from Bristol Farms

So add a little boutique shopping to the list, and don’t forget to at least bring home one bag from the grocery store…that is why you went out in the first place, remember?

Labels We Love: For the kids - Okkies (absolutely the best pants for boys), Tea, Isabelle & Chloe (adorable soft cotton dresses), Kicky Pants, Egg and Avocado, Pura Vida, Angel Dear, Mud Pie, Kushies, Beba Bean bamboo blankets (they feel just like cashmere!), and The Tunes Company vintage rock tees.
For You - Voom, Hazel, Monoreno (LOVE!), and Piko 1988.

Prepare to Pay:
GIRL'S DRESSES - $30 - $75
KID'S TOPS - $20 - $50

ANYTHING UNDER 80? Pretty much everything in the store, plus plentiful gift options for new parents! (Good luck limiting your spending to under $80...!)

Summed Up in a Sentence: When you are sick of seeing the same old stuff everywhere, head over to Baby Babaloo and experience boutique shopping in it's purest form - unique finds, perfectly personalized attention, and the proud feeling of supporting a locally owned business.

Elizabeth Charles - Sophisticated Shopping like Nowhere in the US

Elizabeth Charles - Fillmore Street, San Francisco Boutique Pique
By: Erica Hahn @ Boutiquing

Set the Scene: In the words of the revolutionary rockers Led Zeppelin, "a whole lotta love" went into this sleek and chic boutique in the prestigious Pacific Heights of San Francisco.  From the minimalist decor that doesn't dare dominate the designer dresses to the oversized hangers allowing apparel ample real-estate on the racks, you can instantly see the care and consideration put into selecting each and every item in the store.  Elizabeth Charles filters through fabulous foreign designers for an entirely unique collection of exclusive fashion finds.

Labels We Love: Since Elizabeth Charles' forte is unusual, hard-to-find brands in the US, you may encounter some unfamiliar names, but we know you'll fall in love with the modern lines, phenomenal fabrics, and stellar style of designers like Isabel Marant, Rika, A 'Detacher, Katy Rodriguez, Demylee, Elise Overland and Jasmine de Milo.  Don't miss Comme des Garcons, VPL, Freda and sky-high pumps from Camilla Skovgaard.

Prepare to Pay: 
CLOTHING - $150 to $1,000 (don't be intimidated by big-ticket items, but do check their sale rack for steals!)
SHOES - $300 to $500
HANDBAGS - $400 and up
JEWELRY - $75 to $500
ANYTHING UNDER 80? Demylee tees and tanks, select jewelry, Votivo Candles and Lipstick Queen makeup


Summed Up in a Sentence: For the ultimate experience in sophisticated shopping like nowhere in the US, follow the lead of stylish, savvy celebrities and strut into Elizabeth Charles' Fillmore boutique.
