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 $25, you get $50 worth of women’s apparel and accessories at Hadley Emerson in Chapel Hill.
Hadley Emerson's selection of women’s apparel, jewelry, handbags, and accessories helps fashionistas bolster their closets with stylish adornments that span the brand spectrum, ranging from local names to international designers BCBGeneration and Yoana Baraschi. Swathe feminine exoskeletons in a Corey Lynn Calter striped bow skirt ($128) and punctuate the look with a Sweetie Pie Becca golden large link bracelet ($36), which has been proven to attract less bears than the now passé sausage link bracelet. Vintage gold hoops ($42) add a retina-popping contrast to ruched scarves that come in a variety of colors ($36). This Groupon can also be applied toward premium handbags, such as the MZ Wallace Bea satchel ($385), that stylishly tote valuables and emergency fondue during nights on the town.
Hadley Nixon has always trained a keen eye on the fashion that surrounds her. Drawing from the eclectic looks she saw when living in New York City and the elegant styles that abound in the southeast, Hadley fills her boutique’s powder-blue interior with feminine casual wear and cocktail attire. Dresses and blouses from local North Carolina designers rub elbows with pieces from big-name designers such as Yoana Baraschi and Yumi Kim, who carries Hadley’s personal favorite line of bright, flowing blouses and summer dresses. Elsewhere in the shop, dangling earrings and bracelets with quirky characteristics, such as the integration of metal and cloth, put the finishing touch on outfits and a stylish spin on American Girl dolls.
