Local Lovin’: Curate Boutique in North Palm Beach

3. Comments

 

One of the things I love about shopping in NY is the unexpectedness of it all. When I lived  there most of my shopping was done while running errands. I’d walk and run into a cute shop and get lost in the experience. Since moving to Florida that rarely happens for me and I miss it SO much!

Curate Boutique in North Palm Beach is one of those rare finds. First let me start by how I heard about this place – it’s connected to a car wash {yes you read that right}, my husband told me about it and of course I paid him no mind. I thought he was talking about a souvenir shop of some sorts, then my mom told me how fabulous it was and coincidentally that same week Alyson of TAGG {one of my fave blogs btw!} snapped some amazing pics of their accessories – so of course after all this I figured it was worth checking out.

You’ll find one-of-a-kind pieces that are fun to mix and match, a sea of denim as well as dresses and blouses in breathable fabrics that feel luxurious on.

What I love about Curate is that it’s a boutique with a purpose. Owner + Head Curator,  Kerry Diaz is passionate about philanthropy and when she decided to open a store she wanted to have all the items made in the US or designed by American designers.

She features local designers as well as sustainable designers. Sustainable fashion isn’t only about environmentally friendly fabrics it’s also about taking social responsibility, like fair wages and above standard manufacturing overseas.

Her eye for fashion is impeccable. Kerry provides styling services, and in fact helped me put together some accessories for a recent photo shoot.  Her store is like a sneak peak of items you’ll find in her own closet.

One of my favorite brands Kerry carries is GAIA – made in Dallas with re-purposed fabrics. Each item includes a card that tells you the story of the woman who made it.  I wore the fold-over clutch on a recent photo shoot and loved the versatility of it. You can fold it onto the pattern side, or you can attach a chain to it!
