Scroll on for a peek inside the store, meet the owner, Denise Buzy-Pucheu, and catch our Friends wedding dress moment (because of course, we tried on gowns!).
As women of our age, we know a thing or two about what we want in a bag! If we added up every purse we’ve bought and liked for barely one season…ugh, we could probably have bought a new house or two.

Make sure you check back here in 2038 – we’ll prove it!

Coco Lily, where have you been all our lives?? We’re so glad to have discovered this amazing store in Avon, and will stop there anytime we’re in that neck of the woods from now on! It’s like a boutique department store (with women’s and men’s elevated casual clothing, accessories, a kids department, housewares, and gifts) in a renovated, very chic building that was once the Avon library. Allow us to do what we do best…shop + blog!
How we love New York Fashion Week. It’s like the Superbowl of the fashion world, as we like to explain to our hubbies.

When we were looking for a cute outfit for our recent trip to Boston, we headed straight to WEST. Located in Westport, WEST is a boutique that always inspires us and where we can get our “high/low” fashion fix. Laura Maged (owner) and her team put together a few outfits for us for a one-hour power shopping session.
We’ve been shopping Shop Cathy B for a wee while now. We’ve witnessed its evolution from a small collection of cool items from Ibiza and the cutest accessories from all over – to a really cute small store in Woodbury – to an even cuter, and bigger store in Woodbury, right next to The Marketplace. Yep, we declare this a destination boutique. Grab your gal pals, have a lovely salad and cocktail at The Marketplace, then wander right next door for some awesome shopping. Our kind of afternoon!
