Named for owner Marcella Prieto's Pekingese dog, Cocoa Couture takes trendy aim at traditional women's clothing boutiques that do not literally charge an arm and a leg for their merchandise but metaphorically do. No item at Cocoa Couture costs more than $100. Clients can visit the boutique to peruse the fiscally fit fashions that Prieto has brought in from designers (such as Lush, Pepper, and Tea Fashion) based in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. Ever mindful of the shape-shifting chameleon that is the fashion world, Cocoa Couture changes its in-store and online inventory on a weekly basis. Recent items, however, have included a blue-bibbed tunic ($35) for sloughing through alligator-infested swamps and a long, Grecian-like purple dress ($60) for post-racquetball trips to the bar.
