Making one’s own clothes requires corralling a herd of sheep, feeding them rainbows to dye them different colors, and hiring a professional hairdresser to braid them into sweaters. Save time and sheep with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary women’s apparel, accessories, and more at Goldfinch Boutique in St. Augustine’s Uptown District.
Voted St. Augustine’s best clothing boutique in 2010 by members of the community, Goldfinch Boutique gracefully bedecks its female customers in artful apparel, handcrafted jewelry, and dashing home décor. Haute huntresses can stalk coveted brands such as Johnny Was, Frenzii, and Level 99, draped about the chic, chandeliered storefront. Look fetching this spring in a colorfully embroidered Sweet Paisley crochet dress ($55), while the subtle dove pattern and exposed front zipper of the Simon Flight of Fancy tank ($39) will ensure you catch the eye of every handsome neighborhood birdwatcher. Vibrant pastel wall art printed on recycled paper awaits to dazzle up drab walls with glitter embellishments ($16), and a passionate parade of sunglasses, scarves, hats, and handbags ensure bodily walls are equally ornamented. As a final fashionable touch, inspect the ranks of locally crafted jewelry (starting at $10), where sparkled and sophisticated touches such as a sterling silver jeweled cuff ($55) will distract onlookers from the fact that you aren’t wearing pants.
