The invention of clothing meant people could finally settle in cooler climes, quit staring at kneecaps, and do the worm without fear of rug burn. Partake of the perks of apparel with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of women’s apparel and accessories at Flaunt Boutique in Apex.
Flaunt Boutique’s retail wizards guide ladies through a trendy parade of fashions from designer brands such as Jessica Simpson and Rock Revival, as well as items imported from France and Italy. A Cecico lightweight knit tunic ($43) cools bodies more comfortably than ice-sculpture sweaters, and can be accessorized by a scarf or belt ($24–$34 each). Accentuate natural waists or craft a bindle for a couture hitchhiker with a Marine Blu tie-waist blouse ($48). A floral embroidered skirt by Desigual ($74) shows off gams and interests in botany, and an Anne-Marie Chagnon ring ($65) rewards fingers for years of tireless typing. The open, airy boutique sports wood floors, pale walls, and a lush fainting couch to catch shoppers in the event they’re overcome by garment nirvana.
At Flaunt Boutique and its sister store, Bad Poodle, ladies and girls of all ages can unleash their inner fashionistas. Playing ringleader is owner Jessica Lamarre, an image coach with more than 20 years of experience making women look and feel their best. Jessica travels and researches extensively to find budding fashion trends, which she brings back home so she and her crew can use fashion to encourage others to find their voice and move in the direction of their wildest dreams.
Jessica encourages ladies to play dress-up with unique garments procured from designers such as Desigual, Maxi, Cecico, and Jessica Simpson. Pieces range from casual tops and dresses for all occasions to furry boots, suede heels, and jewelry. At Flaunt Boutique, ladies can dress up during fun, store-sponsored adult events including tea parties. At little sister store Bad Poodle, kiddie birthday parties let little divas flaunt their fashions like a kitten with a new pair of mouse-fur socks.
