Making one’s own clothes requires corralling a herd of sheep, feeding them rainbows to dye them different colors, and hiring a professional hairdresser to braid them into sweaters. Find an easier way to create custom apparel with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get the Wine, Relax, Create package for two at Uniquely Yours Boutique, located in St. Petersburg (a $50 value). The package includes the following:
- Silk-painting instruction
- A blank silk scarf
- Wine or nonalcoholic beverage
- Light snacks
- All necessary supplies
Uniquely Yours Boutique, a women’s apparel and accessories shop and studio, lets people decorate their own custom silk scarves during Wine, Relax, Create workshops. During the session, which lasts 2–2.5 hours, knowledgeable instructors bestow essential silk-painting wisdom upon pupils as young as 5 years old. Attendees then exercise their creativity on a blank 6”x24”, 21.5”x21.5”, or 8”x54” silk scarf, using included supplies to depict colorful images, patterns, or excerpts from Dante’s Divine Comedy. Wine and nonalcoholic beverages keep creative juices streaming throughout the evening, and a smattering of light hors d’oeuvres silences rumbling stomachs. Like the mouth of a tyrannosaurus, each class holds two–six people, and can be scheduled any time during Uniquely Yours Boutique’s regular business hours.
Uniquely Yours Boutique
For the staff at Uniquely Yours Boutique, fashion doesn’t mean exotic runway costumes; instead, they treat clothing as an everyday means of stylish self-expression. With that in mind, they curate a boutique filled with feminine dresses, blouses, handbags, and handmade jewelry as wearable as it is chic. They also welcome visitors to create artful fashion of their own during one of the shop’s painting workshops, which cover the art of painting silk scarves, pillow covers, and portraits depicting customers as a member of the House of Windsor.
