Workshop: GiGi Miller - your nest might have gotten quiet, but it's definitely not empty!

We had about 8 for the workshop and GiGi was nice enough to stay after for awhile and help our workshop attendees shop and put ideas into action.She spoke about changing up lamps with new lampshades, changing drawer pulls on dresser for a facelift, switch up area rugs for a new look, update picture frames or refinish them for a new look.

Free Workshops are back this month!

With the new school year upon us, the first 3 workshops will focus on getting your college bound kids in to their dorm rooms and reclaiming your nest once they've spread their wings! Tomorrow, Diane Quintana will give you the scoop on making that big college move easy through preparation and organization that you can do at home before you hit the road. She'll also give you tips on setting up your student's room in a way that will help set them up for success in this new chapter of their lives.

Our workshops begin at 9:30am and will last about an hour. Seating is first come, first serve. Call for details: 404-377-1944.

Why. I. Love. Fall.

In a word: layers. And if I could pick one more: colors. And if I was allowed a third: boots. Backstory: when I tell customers in the Boutique that I grew up working on horse farms, they always look at me with puzzle pieces knitting across their faces: how, pray tell, did you wind up here? How do farms and fashion go together, or, more appropriately, collide? The short answer: blue jeans. Barn girls learn from an early age how to look good in blue jeans - how to turn the same pair of denim and leather boots into something so powerfully feminine that it catches even the most rugged cowboy by surprise. And then when we meet said cowboy for dinner later in the week, we top those can-do boots with something a little girly and pretend not to notice when he comes undone at the sight.

In this look: New Escada blouse size 4 $450 (retail $1190); Plenty skirt size 6 $34; Kate Spade boots size 8 $115; Gucci handbag $500; Earrings $13; Cowboy hat $6.50

A woman's work... never done! Sometimes I wonder if my husband believes in cleaning fairies... that they swoop in and do his laundry, put the cereal box back in the pantry each morning, stick his dishes in the washer - all before 8am. We women do a lot of work behind-the-scenes. We're unsung, multi-tasking, forces of nature - and we look good doing it!

Items in this look include: New Kate Landry handbag $59, New Ralph Lauren snake heels, size 8.5 $340, retail $825, New Michael Kors dress, size 12 $531, retail $1795, Chico's clip earrings $17, Yellow bangle $7, Versace sunglasses $92

The Man Chair

We took these blog pictures in what will soon be Finders Keepers Menswear! Our landlords just finished their part of the build-out (it's called a "white box" - stripped down floors and white walls... oh the possibilities!) and granted us the "certificate of occupancy," which means we get to -finally- move in and get down to business. The fellas may not want to hear it, but it's often so very true: behind every great man is a strong woman. And these fierce and fiesty boutique girls are going to make sure Atlanta's men have a great place to save money, make money, and shop smart!

In this look: Missoni dress, size 4 $89, new Valentino heels, size 38.5 $269 (retail $675), Chez Bella gloves $10, Earrings $12, Carolina Herrera handbag $67, scarf $10

Additional shoes: New Jimmy Choo heels, size 38.5 $330 (retail $790), Valentino heels, size 38.5 $148, New Armani heels, size 38 $254 (retail $685)
