The name itself evokes a dreamy, blissful state. While shopping for fashionable clothing and eye-catching jewelry may not make all our dreams come true, it can help!! Finding that perfect dress or blouse or accessory actually can be a step to reaching goals, to building a confidence-enhancing wardrobe, and to creating special occasions! “Create the occasion for the dress!” declares my savvy sis-in-law. This could be the motto for this popular Los Angeles boutique. I’ve been to Polka Dots and Moonbeams, located on 3rd Street in West Hollywood, a few times this year since my sis-in-law re-introduced me. Each time, I came out completely satisfied with my unique finds, and I can’t wait to pay another visit very soon!!! See just how satisfied I was last time. Two bags full!! ➔➔➔
The Polka Dots and Moonbeams concept is to bring the latest, newest designer collections together under one (adorably adorned) roof. It’s a one-stop-shop! Polka Dots & Moonbeams buyers stay on top of the trends, carrying such brands as Hudson Jeans, Milly, Hale Bob, Tarte, and Bailey 44 to name a few. The boutique carries a perfect mix of well-known designers as well as less mainstream brands. I am confident when I walk into Polka Dots and Moonbeams that when I walk out, I will leave with pieces I won’t dismayingly spot on others. Not only does the boutique carry just one item in each size, but the clothing itself is not what one can find at the local mall by any means. As cited on their website, “Our customers come in whether they are looking for the special piece or the whole outfit.” That’s true for me – I paid a visit at the beginning of summer looking for any ‘new and exciting summer pieces’ as well as later in the summer for a first date outfit. 🙂 On both of these visits, my finds were fulfilled thanks to Polka Dot’s expert shopper, Lorin. Lorin is one of the fashion savvy people who just look at you and know what will look good on your body-type. Lorin now knows me by name, knows my likes and dislikes, and knows me!!! It’s to the point where I simply walk in the door, excitedly chat with Lorin and mosey around while Lorin briskly picks up piece-upon-piece for me. It makes me feel so . . . . Hollywood!!! I completely trust her judgment as I find pieces waiting for me in the dressing room that I would never pick up myself but look surprisingly flattering on.
