Happy Friday! There’s nothing quite like thinking about the weekend that makes me want to drop everything and go shopping. I’ve been spending the past few days looking over one of my favorite boutique’s website/blog and loving everything I see on there. Merge is everything I look for in a boutique – a small selection of unique and sophisticated clothes and it has what many other Seattle boutiques miss- impeccable taste. Truth be told, I’m a little tired of the Savvy department and buyers who only go after the “It” trend of the season. At Merge, you won’t find (at least I didn’t) Rachel Pally dresses or Juicy Couture anything, but instead unique and beautiful pieces you won’t see anywhere else in the city. Some of my favorites include this top by Greyhound and this dress by Black Halo. I bought a bird dress from Voom that I’ve never seen anywhere else.
Merge carries a lot of black (my favorite!) and other dark colored pieces but they are all uniquely shaped and cut. The store space is actually very comfortable and the owner is incredibly friendly. Merge is located in Seattle’s Ballard area at 5000 20th Avenue NW but for those of you who don’t live there, pieces can be ordered off their website at mergeboutique.com
