Holiday Style Guide: Spotlight on Periwinkle Boutique
Need some fresh style inspiration this holiday season? Head to Periwinkle Boutique in Old Town, Alexandria, VA, where the fabulous owner, Elizabeth Mason, has got you covered.
This perfectly curated boutique based out of a beautiful historic Alexandria row home, is the go-to for trendy pieces and flattering finds.
The owner, Elizabeth, is delightful and she certainly has an eye for fashion from her 15+ years in the business and knows how to keep her customers happy and hooked. Thank you for finding all of the good stuff for us!! My closet and Instagram feed feels #blessed.
The space itself is pretty incredible, but add the always-current collection of accessories & clothing and it’s a slice of shopper paradise. With such a nicely laid out and pretty space smack dab in precious Old Town, and a collection that is always new and exciting, it’s really hard to stay away from (and leave) this “shopperdise”. I’ve had the most enjoyable Saturdays trying on outfit after outfit in the adorable fitting rooms, reminiscent of 1950s beach changing tents, while sipping refreshments from the “Periwinkle Lounge” in the back (also great for distracting your significant other with TV while you shop). Everything seems to mix and match easily, and Elizabeth and team are all incredibly helpful with suggesting items to try on and what to pair them with.
The two looks pictured here each have elements of sparkle– a constant style staple for the holidays. The Sequin Slip Dress layered with the Neve Lurex Sweater checks the trend box for chunky sweaters paired with midi skirts or dresses. The Regal Coat Dress, with its silver trim boucle and sparkly buttons, is absolutely stunning and looks great paired with the High Rise Skinny Glitter Hem jeans, adding yet another pop of sparkle. Toss in a pair of print booties with anything and everything, and you are set.
Elizabeth, always on top of the fashion forecast, says these are some of the trends that are big right now:
- Midi skirts with chunky sweaters
- Midi dresses with sneakers
- Leopard and snakeskin
If these trends seem a bit out of your comfort zone, there are plenty of other options at Periwinkle (apologies in advance for your new shopping habit / you’re welcome!). Take a “you” day and enjoy refreshments from the Periwinkle Lounge while you have a blast trying on all of the goodies!
