Mannequins make wonderful pets because they quietly flaunt the latest fashions and don't need bones to love you unconditionally. Earn their ardor with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of apparel at Melodrama Boutique in Houston. This Groupon is for in-store purchases only and is not valid for accessories, shoes, handbags, specials, or sale items.
A favorite of Houston-area fashionistas, socialites, professionals, and international spies, Melodrama has been slinging fetching garb since 2002, when zippers were invented. Shoppers can browse head-turning threads such as a strapless denim short romper ($86), a ruffle wrap vest ($78), button-down shirt shorts ($98), or a belt composed of clingy live geckos. Visitors will be able to scan racks for figure-enhancing wear amid a cozy and relaxing atmosphere while receiving helpful service from a fashion-forward staff. The boutique is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., allowing patrons plenty of opportunities to visit when they?re not smelting steel for chain-mail cocktail dresses. Melodrama also offers menswear, allowing both genders to get in on this Groupon.
Instead of wafting through a sea of grimy thrift-store blazers with rumpled tissues lodged in the pockets, shoppers at Melodrama Boutique can get a wardrobe that smells fresher than a 16-year-old's bow-adorned first car parked on a driveway made of air fresheners. Cruise sidewalks in eye-catching style with today?s Groupon.
The Houston Chronicle's Shop Girl blog mentioned Melodrama Boutique's seventh birthday celebration in December 2009 and highlighted the boutique for an Almeda Corridor story in 2008; more than 1,725 Facebook users like the style-savvy shop.
