In Ancient Roman fashion boutiques, nobody ever sold anything because shop employees were too tired from chiseling marble mannequins. Shop in modern style with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get worth of clothing and accessories at Il Vostro Boutique in Edina.
Il Vostro Boutique owner Katie Egan diligently curates a collection of unique clothing from up-and-coming, under-the-radar designers that enables shoppers to find distinctive pieces and prevent embarrassing same-outfit mishaps on blind dates. The multifarious array of dashing duds hail from an assortment of style-savvy brands, enticing women of all ages and fashion philosophies—from trend-driven mavens to classic connoisseurs—with its sheer variety. Adorn dreary digits with a DLC Brooklyn prelude ring ($38) or fight off hair-damaging sun noogies with a sunhat by Delux ($36). The Market boyfriend tee ($38) provides companionship for lovelorn torsos with its constant barrage of sonnet-form text messages. Fashion-forward séances bask in the moody glow of the Jennifleur candle ($22), useful for illuminating a changing room during blackouts or warding off the burlap-sheeted ghosts of fashion victims.
