“You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy local and that’s kind of the same!”
I am a firm believer in supporting local businesses and retailers! Living in Raleigh, NC, I have a few local boutiques that I frequent almost weekly! Uniquities, in North Hills and Cameron Village, are two of my absolute favorite local designer boutiques! Anytime I am shopping for a trip or event, Uniquities is my first stop! All of the staff at Uniquities are incredibly friendly and eager to help, “style” you! There is nothing worse than walking into a store where you do not feel welcome and the sales associates just stare at you like you don’t belong: this is not the case at Uniquities! There has never been a time when I walked in that I was not acknowledged and asked if I needed help! Customer service means everything to me and I am willing to pay a little more for something, if my experience is enjoyable!
This week I stopped by Uniquities in North Hills to, “just look,” (who am I kidding this never works) and couldn’t believe the Fall selection! Walking in the store, I was greeting by two of my favorite sales associates, Sarah Baillargeon and Karen Henderson, who always make it a point to call me by name and make sure I have any help I need.
On this trip, Sarah helped me pick out some amazing camo pants by J Brand that are probably one of the softest pair of pants I have ever put on my body! These pants honestly feel like pajamas! I hate when I sit down and my pants (which have expanded throughout the day) start to bulge and these DO NOT! Camo is trending this Fall and is a neutral that can be dressed up or down!
Ok, I know you have all been waiting for the details on this little FRINGE number! I wish I could say that it came home with me, but either way I had to show it off paired with my new skinnies!! This leather jacket, “Garvin” is made by Elizabeth & James and is a SHOWSTOPPER!! This jacket has so many details from the stitching around the front and bottom all the way to the perfectly made FRINGE! This jacket needs a moment of silence… Alright, we can move on 😉 Fringe is one of the HOTTEST trends this FALL and YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS!
This beautiful leopard clutch really set off the entire outfit! Leopard is that little pop of ‘pizzazz’ any outfit needs to be FIERCE! I also paired this look with my favorite Topshop ‘Ghillie’ lace up ballet flats for the win!
Ask for some of my favorites at North Hills: Sarah & Karen or Linda & Hayden at the Cameron Village location; tell them Holly sent you 😉 So what are you waiting for?!? Run, don’t walk to any one of Uniquities four locations!
