Somewhere recently, I read about the upswing of quality merchandise in Hotel boutiques. (Maybe Style.com? Shame on me for not knowing…) Either way, it thus came as no surprise when the bright colors and sequins of The W’s store grabbed my eye and pulled me in as only sparkly displays can.
There are options for every age of W guest, fulfilling the hotel’s deceleration and driving promise of “Whatever, Whenever.” Every item in the shop has its own presence and personality. The outward lure of sparkles proved consistent; I didn’t find a piece I didn’t like.
But! I couldn’t try on everything, so I settled on just a few things:
The dress was a great color, but wasn’t the right fit, and the bikini bottom was too small, but the top, by Sauce, is as “cute” as the garment asks of its audience. (And isn’t the dressing room perfect?)
My other must-haves from the boutique are the above clutch, by Felix Rey, and bracelets. Each of the Cruciani bands available at the W is either $10 or $15 dollars. I’d say my visit to the boutique was well successful, and I look forward to returning. I’m not ashamed to say I’m infatuated with anything brightly colored or sparkly, and this shop’s mood certainly works as a disco ball fix!
As for what I wore during my morning of shopping,
I must admit, I have a penchant for snapbacks. This one, but the So-Cal street brand Us Versus Them, suits me with its understated tones and thick embroidery. I suppose Florida just brings out my street cred…
True Religion Vest // Silence & Noise Trousers // Ecote Sandals
// Purse from Nasty Gal //
Its a funny thing about Urban Outfitters, I clearly know the brands I like. See here, even more Silence & Noise!
I hope you all had as fantastic a holiday as I!
