Henry David Thoreau distrusted any enterprise that required new clothes, which is why he abandoned his career as a French maid. Embrace bold new outfits with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of dresses, skirts, accessories, and designer apparel from Fifteen22 Boutique.
Fifteen22 Boutique's fashion mavens adorn the store’s racks with contemporary head-turning looks from Aryn K, BCBG, Blaque Label, and other popular designers. Channel tribal style with an Aryn K multicolor silk sheath with a striking shoulder build ($97.50), or take a softer approach with a Ladakh wrap dress, painted in watercolor hues and the passionate tears of an Impressionist painter ($140.50). The curves of a red and pink BCBG MaxAriza scarlett bandage skirt ($148) hugs hips lovingly, and the shop's selection of stylish cuffs and 18-karat, gold-plated Taolei neck drapings ($20–$40) give stylistas ammunition to brandish at inferior accessories currently hiding in home wardrobes.
Fifteen22 Boutique bedecks its walls with local artwork to connect with the local arts scene. Shoppers can break from perusing the racks by reclining on the shop’s plush zebra-print chairs while ruminating over potential purchases and on whether to reply when a certain dress literally speaks to you.
Though Fifteen22 Boutique is housed in a historic homestead from the mid-18th century, its antique exterior belies its selection of contemporary designer apparel. Fluorescent lighting spills through floor-to-ceiling windows over the city’s Lower Garden District, where browsers are hard-pressed to find another women’s boutique that caters to the high-end sensibilities of modern professionals and party prowlers alike. Earning plaudits from both the fashion writers at Women's Wear Daily and the curators at InTheNOLA.com's "The Native's Guide to Shopping", the shop connects clients with pieces from leading brands including BCBG, MaxAzria, Ladakh, DL1961 Premium Denim, Blaque Label, and Blank NYC. This commitment to accessible style has also earned the shop recognition from the region's fashion elite; pieces from the boutique recently stalked the runway at New Orleans Fashion Week.
