My favorite thing, when it comes to personal style, is the following:
SOME RANDO: Oh my god, I'm obsessed with your (insert fabulous piece here).
ME: Oh thanks!
SOME RANDO: No really, where did you get it?
ME: (Insert some obscure and fabulous boutique).
It may sound really dumb, but I'm obsessed with shopping at little boutiques. In my mind, these stores really drive personal style: we're not concerned with being on trend in these stores. Instead, we purchase pieces simply because we love them. This past weekend, my mother and I went to this Bostonian boutique called Bobbles &Lace. Obviously, it was love at first sight.
While Bobbles & Lace has clothes, shoes, and purses, I'm OBSESSED with their jewels. If I could, I would've bought the vast majority of their necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Though I didn't clear out the store, I did purchase some incredible statement necklaces.
|Isn't the detailing to die for?|
|I'm so smitten with how edgy this necklace is. Can we talk about the spikes?! Incredible. I felt like such a toughie when I wore this necklace yesterday: I styled it with my toughie boots , a grey leather jacket, black top, and dark green shorts. Oh, and let's not forget the red lip! A colorful lip is appropriate for a neckline like this because there aren't no pops of color. If you're going to go the edgy route with a piece like this , go all out! Another cool way to style a piece like this would be with an A-line skirt, simple top, and a denim vest.|
If you're in Beantown, I highly suggest you check out Bobbles & Lace. If not, I urge you to find super sick boutiques close to you!
