My appreciation for boutiques began while I worked at Peridot Boutique in Seattle after I graduated from college. My experience there has influenced my career goals and has also enhanced my passion for fashion. It was hard to say goodbye when I decided to move to Las Vegas with my fiance, but it is always a must-see when I visit Washington. I decided to start this Boutique of the Week series because I miss being around the unique fashions found in small, specialized stores.There is something about a locally owned business that makes it a more personalized shopping experience, which I love!
Located in Lower Queen Anne, this stylish store mixes trend-setting pieces with the best basics to help shoppers create a fun, yet functional wardrobe. It always felt like Christmas morning when the owners would come back from their LA buying trips with boxes of statement necklaces, seasonal dresses, must-have handbags and more. Having three owners helps create the well-rounded store because their ages and personal styles all vary, thus lending to an inventory that has something for everyone.
Peridot always has a great selection of denim and basic tees. The quality of the fit and materials make these simple items far from boring. You’ll never want to take off the soft, stretchy tops and jeans. To add a trendy twist to the classic items, style them with a front tuck and booties.
One of my favorite parts of the job was styling the mannequins. I loved playing with the fashions and showing customers unique ways to style the pieces. Don’t underestimate the power of accessories! A statement necklace can easily take an outfit from simple to runway ready.
If you’re looking for a traffic-stopping ensemble, Peridot Boutique boasts a variety of fun dresses. From pretty patterns and simple silhouettes to bold colors and unexpected details, these fashionable frocks can be worn for work, date night or a girls’ night out.
With several lines of candles, perfumes and lotions, this beautiful boutique is also a one-stop-shop for gifts.
I am obviously a little biased, but Peridot Boutique is a must-see whether you are in Seattle or an online shopper. Plus, if you mention that you saw Peridot on Treats and Trends when you make a purchase, you will receive 20% off of an item! Happy shopping :)
