A jellyfish's handshake is simultaneously weak and poisonous, which is why it seldom makes good first impressions. Avoid the jellyfish effect by donning new duds with today's Groupon: for $95, you get $200 worth of designer apparel and accessories at Blink Boutique.
The fashion-forward staff at Blink Boutique stock shelves with designer duds from lines including Twelfth Street, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Hudson Jeans, and Shoshanna. Employees help clients select stylish denim from brands such as Paige, Hudson, and Vince to flatter hourglass figures or life-size chess pieces ($178+), and a rotating stock of T-shirts featuring designers such as Velvet and Joie ($60+) wraps torsos in chic-but-casual fabric. Shoppers can don Tom Ford shades ($300–$400) to screen eyes from the sparkle of chunky jewelry by local artisan Summer Eliason or glittering metallics from Los Angeles–based gemsmith Melinda Maria ($30–$200). Alternatively, a crossover purse from Linea Pelle ($162+) can safely smuggle cash, keys, and top-secret nuclear codes.
Blink Boutique’s fashion-savvy staff stocks a diverse collection of women’s dresses, denim, and tees by coveted brands such as Vince, Helmut Lang, Cynthia Rowley, and Halston Heritage. The store’s collection of flirty, feminine wares has cemented its status as a bastion of the local fashion community, which has been corroborated by the stylists of Lucky Magazine who featured their wares. Staff members are always happy to lead customers through the 1,700-square-foot store to find a special outfit, offer fitting tips at the denim bar, or help customers hone in on flattering ensembles for any occasion.
