Soooo, there are a few online spots I visit regularly--of course the ones that sell assortments of cute cute heels, where I can dream and browse the most in-style kicks on the planet. Other than that, I must say that I enjoy scopin' out the scene of the many online boutiques that are out there. One of them that I've been mucho adoring lately is blonde birdie--this super-stylish gal has got tons o' goods in her saucy online store! I figured since I've been browsing this place so much, I'd show off some of my favorite items for ya on this fine Monday. A girl can't live on heels alone, can she?
Women's accessories, handbags, jewelry and scarves line the online shelves at blonde birdie boutique. Ahhh, the assortment is quite something! My latest obsessions right now consist of the 'Walk the Line' white ring, as well as the 'Chiffon Sisters' earrings. Check these gorgeous goods out:
I also am diggin' this Milly woven clutch in richly-colored turquoise. It's one lovely clutch that's ready to take out for a day of simple shopping or a night out on the town. Perfectly portable and wonderfully woven!
Feast your fashionista eyes on blonde birdie's Wisteria Blooms scarf in royal purple, and also the Golden Buds scarf. Both are perfect for that added splash of color to any jeans & tee outfit.
I decided to ask the owner of blonde birdie a few questions...just to pick her stylish brain on how she got started, and where she drew her inspiration from, etc. etc. Thought you'd be interested to know...
Tell us about blonde birdie and how you got started:
I worked for an independent boutique for many years and was fortunate enough to have a boss who was eager to share her knowledge of buying and design with her staff. Unfortunately she wasn’t so eager to pursue new ways of expanding her business such as internet sales. Then one day it dawned on me that I didn’t have to wait for someone else to decide to build a website--I could start my own, and blonde birdie was born. I don’t quite remember how blonde birdie was named, but I’ve always loved birds (in design, not in real life) and I’m a true blondie (even when my hair is not), so it just seems to fit perfectly.
What or who inspires your online boutique's style?
It sounds cliché, but I find inspiration all around me. I’m constantly taking random snapshots with my camera of things that don’t makes sense to other people or ripping pages from magazines to take home and put on my inspiration board. I love eclectic French décor--my style was once described as French flea market, which may not sound complimentary to some, but I thought it was perfect! I try to make sure we have a mix of vintage-inspired items as well as some that would satisfy more contemporary shoppers.
Give us one tip about personal or at-home style:
Don’t be afraid to mix and match. If everything in your home coordinates too perfectly it looks too planned. If you love something made of iron, buy it. If you love something made of wood, buy it. This mix of textures and materials helps to give your home a real lived-in look, which although may not be perfect will always be welcoming.
This online shop also carries items for the home, great gift ideas, and even super cute kids stuff--there's even a sweet sale page! So before you hit the mall and fight that angry & busy parking lot, check out blonde birdie and see what's up. Happy Monday, friends!
