Shop Small Day 192: Fuschia

Who says it’s impossible to shop adorable boutiques without spending a fortune? You just need to know when to shop. And, this weekend’s Glen Ellyn Sidewalk Sales are the perfect time hit Fuschia.

I’ve always been drawn to boutiques because, generally, lesser known brands often mean higher quality. Since I don’t shop often, I don’t mind paying a little more for clothes when I know they’ll last several years.

That said, I still can’t bring myself to pay $98 for a t-shirt.

imageBut, when said shirt gets marked down to $20…it’s mine!

Since my daughter often hits my closet now too, I figure I can share the tank top she found for $20 also!

After moving from Chicago to the suburbs, Ashlee noticed her new town was desperately missing a stylish boutique. So, in 2004 she opened Fuschia. Since then she’s been featured in In Style, Lucky, and Chicago Magazines- just to name a few!

She’s stocked with great clothes for casual weekends, to office wear, to a night out on the town. Dressed up or dressed down, Fuschia has a good selection of shoes and jewelry to complete any outfit.

Her employee Eve is incredibly sweet and helpful. She cut off the tags & helped my daughter put on her new necklace, and taught me how to accessorize a dress with a belt.

Familiar with designers? You’ll find Rebecca Taylor, Ella Moss, Michael Stars (stripe tank pictured), Citizens of Humanity, Velvet (long sleeve pink shirt pictured), and plenty more.

If you’re looking for classic styles, or something a little trendy, head to Fuschia. If you’re looking for fantastic deals, make sure you get there this weekend.

Now that you have your great outfit, head a couple doors down to say hello to Annie and get a pedicure & martini at Cosmos!
