Here's a website quite unlike anything I've seen before. It's part store finder, part trend identifier and part designer resource. Their tagline is: "Get your fashion fix...locally." It's a pretty cool resource if you're visiting a new city, want to do some shopping and want to preview some of the local boutiques ahead of time. Not to mention, you can check out your own city to see what's new with your favorite boutiques or to find ones you may have never known existed.
If you become a member you can receive updates about special promotions, store arrivals and sales; communicate with your favorite stores directly about your fashion needs; get invited to special fashion events; and create a list of faves to share with friends and family.
You can search boutiques by name or city and a lot of them have a little photo so you can get a glimpse. You can also search by designer and I definitely saw some new names I will need to check out. The members appear to comprise a happy fashion community, sort of like yours truly. The section I spent the most time in is trends and it sparked a few ideas. Lastly, they have a blog!
Ooh! They also have a Spring giveaway contest right now until April 16th, to see a sampling of what you could win,
