Dash Miami: Revisited!

Hello Boutique Freaks! This past week I was in Miami. Even though I was there under unfortunate circumstances I couldn't help but do the two things I love to do..1) Shop and 2) Window Shop! (What'd you think??) So needless to say I visited some stores while I was there. Now, if you've followed Boutique Freak from the beginning or took the time to read all the post you'll know I've done a post in Miami before; it was on the very popular Dash Miami boutique. The first time I went Dash seemed to be merely a tourist stop on Washington Ave for people to take picture in. Well I'm happy to report that that is not so anymore! It actually looks like a store. Unfortunately I couln't take a picture of how full the store looked and the very nice pieces they had to offer (security was watching me hard!) but I did take two pictures of myself there, you tell me if you notice anything different....
  To take a look at my first post on Dash click here ~~>Dash Miami otherwise read on for all the new things I have to say about it. I'm not sure how often Dash changes their decor but they did. It was cute before, but I really like the change in the whole vibe of the boutique. I mean it actually felt like a boutique! They even decorated for halloween :-) As far as the clothes. not only did they actually have clothes in the store (unlike last time I went) but they had some great pieces. There was one designer that really stood out to me that they seemed to carry alot of called Alice + Olivia and I fell in love with this dress
  Isn't she lovely???? Anybody that knows me well knows I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE SEQUINS!! Anyways, thats just a sample of the fabulousness that Dash has "in store". As far as prices go, Dash is what I'd like to call moderately expensive. The dress that I loved so much cost about $600. So if you plan on shopping in Dash make sure you bring your big girl wallet! Otherwise you can fill your shopping bags with bottles of Kardashian water, candles, and other knick knacks they have to sell to people that want to come in the store but not leave empty handed...
So if your ever in Miami go ahead and stop by, hopefully the store remains consistent in their offerings. Its located at 815 Washingston Ave Miami, FL 33139, or you could just walk the streets near South Beach and stumble upon it. Apparently visiting the store is the only way you will have access to the clothes because I've searched the internet far and wide and have not been able to come up with an official website for the store itself. Maybe for exclusivity?? I don't know. But if you stop by tell they Boutique Freak sent you and told you they actually have clothes in the store!

The Lucky Exchange

Hello Boutique Freakers! Well it October and I know alot of you guys are starting to look for one of a kind pieces for upcoming costume parties, of you just love finding new places to hunt for one of a kind pieces. Well all know Vintage is the way to go when your looking for price savy exclusivity! Well, my sister and I were on our way to grab dinner at Little Azio on Moreland (try the Tortellini entree, its awesome!), and I saw a new store in the same plaza.


Its called the Lucky Exchange. There are two locations, theres the new location I visited at 749 Moreland Ave Atlanta, GA 30316, and theres the original

location at 212 Ponce De Leon Ave Atlanta, GA 30308. The Lucky Exchange reminds me of a smaller version of The Clothing Warehouse. It is very

organized and easy to shop vintage and modern clothing and accessories. They have some cute accessories, I questioned the quality of some of the

pieces but there were some cute things there.


There is something else that makes the Lucky Exchange different and its all in the name. They specialize in the resale of Men's and Women's clothing and accessories. They offer cash and store credit for unique or name brand apparel and accessories. Lucky Exchange asked that the clothing is clean, free of stains, and needs no repair. For any other details give them a call. So if your interested in shopping for something new and different pieces, try the Lucky Exchange. Or if you interested in transitioning your wardrobe, bring your fabulous fashions in to Lucky Exchange and get something new!

My My My: MY MY MY!!!

Hello Boutique Freaks! So this wasn't originally suppose to be my next post, BUT I had such an amazing time here I had to share it! My partner in crime and I were taking a leisurely stroll down Peachthree Street. We were headed CB2 (Crate & Barrel and lkea married each other and created CB2) and I saw this boutique and literally ran across the street. I was put on to My My My a little while ago by one of my friends. Shout out to Kudzi, follow him on twitter @SirGarde (He's one of the dopest people I know) I think he does work at a another boutique called Coposhi. Look for a future post on Coposhi as well! But back to the story. So I walk in and its like I walked into an enchanted world. Don't believe me? Look.
Enchanting right??! My My My! Atlanta marries vintage and modern apparel and accessories. I love it! And associates there are just as appealing as the boutique! All of them were soooo nice! They were also very informative and they made it a point to make sure my friend and I knew that all their prices were negotiable. Another really special thing about My My My are the accessories they have available. There is a line of what I like to call "Sparkly" Shoes there made by designer and Atlanta Native Erica Jones. There is also an AMAZING line of crystal jewelry and accessories by designer Princess Brandy. Princess Brandy's designs have been featured on episodes of VH1's Single Ladies. One particular piece I remembered that I saw in the display case at the shop was a silver and clear crystal clutch carried by Stacy Dash's character Valerie on the show ( I want to say it was the first episode). Some of the clothing at My My My was also used to dress the ladies of VH1's hit show Single Ladies. You can find My My My! Atlanta at 900 Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA 30309. The store is open Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 7pm and Monday by appointment or "chance". I really feel love with this place and I'm sure you can find many one of a kind and get custom pieces here! Stop by and tell them Boutique Freak sent you :-)
