Styles for Columbia’s ever-changing weather.
by Girl Boutique
Owned by Kelley Berghager, Girl Boutique, on Forum Boulevard, is a hotspot for local fashion and offers a variety of sizes to fit a wide range of body types. They’ve offered classic boho styles since opening in 2005, as well as jewelry that appeals to the budget-conscious and the occasional high spender.
This outfit features a lace embroidered poncho paired with distressed Joe’s Jeans. It’s accented with a small patterned clutch, a turquoise decorative necklace, and a coordinating handmade tooled leather bracelet by Gemini Mermaid.
from Muse Clothing
Muse Clothing, located on Ninth Street and owned by Nikki Davis, opened four years ago but has already made a name for itself among college students and young adults. The items in the store are 60 percent locally made, and the selection features a large collection of vintage clothing.
Muse’s outfit here features a polyester blend cream duster by Mustard Seed and a light and comfortable cami that can also be worn as a slip dress. The necklace is handmade by Rebel + Ruse jewelry designer Camille Moore.
by My Sister’s Circus
2017 marks their 40th anniversary, and My Sister’s Circus continues to be a hotspot among locals for high-end contemporary looks. Located on East Broadway, the store is owned and operated by the mother–daughter team of Celeste and Stella Hardknock.
This look offers a touch of western flair with a neutral fringe cardigan by Cartise that hangs over a soft under-sweater by Nic + Joe. The outfit is paired with chunky turquoise necklaces by Two’s Company and light denim jeans by Cartise, with gold gems for an extra embellishment.
