The other day, I had a meeting downtown and ended up doing a bit of shopping around the area afterwards. I poked my head into a few boutiques run by ladies I've gotten to know since I started fashion blogging. Minneapolis always surprises me with this small-town feel on occasion. Within certain industries/circles, it can feel quite quaint indeed. One such local boutique is Statement. One of their major trademarks is that they get in new jewelry each week on Fridays, most designed by the owner. It's beautiful stuff. It was fun seeing the place decked out in holiday decor. The outside of Statement Boutique's building and the shops nearby are this reddish brick draped with garland in the most festive of ways. It's a charming boutique in a charming part of town.
