She’s ready to take on whatever comes her way in this strong ensemble. Ark and Co Crop

Beauty and the Baggu

#TGIF! This Friday, we’re going to charm you with a little Fairytale. Once upon a time in a land not so far away from Minx Boutique….
Baggu Beauty

There was a sophisticated, driven, and impeccably stylish woman named Grace. Baggu Beauty

With a Navy Baggu on her shoulder and Remix shoes on her feet…there was nothing that could stop this Minx.

She was a rule breaker. If she liked it- she wore it. In her book, a seemingly casual sweater paired perfectly with an elegant skirt. Baggu Beauty

This look is available entirely in our downtown Asheville Boutique.

Isn’t Michelle a dream in this jumpsuit and tuxedo jacket combo? We love the casual elegance of this look. The black and white color scheme is a classic go-to that elevates without overwhelming.
