Within Stephanie Horne Boutique's spacious interior, with its exposed-brick walls and hardwood floors, shiny racks beckon to fashionistas with a plethora of stylish women's attire from such reputable brands as Hale Bob, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Lolly. Window displays at the Brookfield and brand-new Third Ward location show off colorful dresses from Analili and Glam, and mannequins allow customers to imagine how they'd look like wearing a pair of Domino jeggings or a silvery robot street-performer costume. Chunky bracelets and jangly necklaces add a touch of glittery grace to outfits, and wedge shoes and high-heeled boots from Cynthia Vincent clothe feet in runway-strolling style.
Aesthetician Sara Bohlmann has many tools at her disposal for making skin look its best, from the Image skincare products she uses to create custom facials to the cosmetics she applies during special-occasion makeup sessions.

The salon hosts girls' night out parties on Friday nights, inviting up to 10 ladies to enjoy complimentary appetizers as the staff applies cosmetics, massages sore muscles, and supplies cotton makeup pads for the gentlest of pillow fights.
