The charming boutique carries a variety of fashion-forward styles, and the opening event featured a fashion show showcasing their trendy clothes. The finale showed the debut of emma jane bridal from Nicole Miller Bridal. The shop is located at 7643 Girard Ave., Suite C, and hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
