One item every gal needs in her closet is the “perfect” spring dress that can be worn to any fabulous daytime event. And the more unique the better because, let’s face it, no one wants to walk into a social gathering wearing the same outfit as someone else.
El Paso’s locally owned fashion boutiques offer saavy clothing shoppers unique options because they stock a very limited selection of styles created by designers you would not be likely to find anywhere else in town.
Here are five local boutiques that are known for their exclusive inventory and have some great springtime fashion options.
GAL is the newest high-end contemporary boutique to hit El Paso’s West Side.GAL shoppers love that the store resembles a New York showroom and provides a personal shopping experience for its customers.
Jessenia Cruz, an expert fashion stylist at GAL, says every piece in the boutique is limited to one item per size. “The dress is very exclusive to that person for their special occasion and once we are sold out we do not order anymore,” Cruz said.
GAL is one of two El Paso boutiques to carry designs by Jay Godfrey. This beautiful floral number from the Spring 2016 Trunk Show Collection came in sizes 0,2,4, and 6 for $325.
J.Luxe at 230 Cincinnati on the edge of Kern Place, is a chic boutique owned by Jessica Escalante. Her attentive staff guide shoppers through a variety of items from clothing and jewelry to fab yoga mats.
