On Thursday evening, Jewel and I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening celebration of Lorie Lester Studio + Boutique. Her boutique-which is beautifully decorated with photos, and a glamorous rug and vintage couch-makes even the most seasoned shop-a-holic feel as though they are in fashion heaven! The Lorie Lester Studio offers shoppers an experience unlike any other because it is so much more than just a boutique. It is also a studio, complete with a cutting room full of fabrics and sketches.
If your favorite design is not on the rack in your size, she will alter it for you. If you find a dress that you think would be great as a skirt, she’ll grab the fabric and make it for you. If you prefer your clothes tailored to your body (who doesn’t?), she’ll customize your picks for you. The best part? It’s all done right there! You’re probably thinking that you’ve been to your share of boutiques, but none like this. And you are right!
The party was way cool. Guests enjoyed a 30% discount off of select items. There were also cocktails, lite bites (including cupcake creations by 2 Girls and a Cupcake), and sultry sounds by DJ Keen One. Those three FAB chicks from Chronicles of a Social Esquire were spotted in the crowd, as well as fellow blogger, Joanie Cox. It was packed!
Lorie Lester’s designs are unique, fun, and fabulously fashionable! Her collection includes both glamorous and laid-back pieces that seamlessly reflect the Miami lifestyle. In addition to her own designs, Lorie Lester Studio + Boutique also carries accessories (including handbags and eyewear) from up-and-coming brands like Beautiful People Handbags and Gorjana Jewelry.
So next time you find yourself in need of fulfilling a shopping urge, visit Lorie Lester Studio + Boutique. It’s at 6301 Biscayne in Midtown. Tell them we sent you!
