Women's Clothing with Style

Women’s Clothing in Sizes Most of us Wear

We recently received a gorgeous collection in sizes 14 – 1X that includes party/evening dresses as well as casual tops, skirts, jackets and pants. These gowns above are just an sample.

It’s always fun to get in a supply of beautiful women’s clothing at reFresh Boutique. The flurry to sort, clean, steam and price is a Zen process for me. I am a tactile person and embrace colors and their effect upon us — blue and greens and the calmness they imbue, reds and oranges for their warmth and energy. You’ll find a wide array of colors and styles in a range of sizes from 0 – 3X.

Christmas Shopping Can be a Joy

Christmas Shopping Should be Fun

Make Christmas Shopping Fun Again

This should be a happy time of year, but we place such pressure on ourselves to provide that “perfect” gift for everyone on our list. It’s an unrealistic dream. Think back to the things that made you happy at Christmas. Was it the toys, or the clothing or the super duper television? Okay I’ll grant that the super duper television may be memorable. Or, was it time spent around a fire Christmas Eve as a loved one read Twas the Night Before Christmas? Was it gathering around a table for Christmas dinner, whether it was with a horde or just gazing across the table at your favorite person. Maybe it was spending the evening downtown watching the Christmas tree lighting or singing carols while sipping hot cider and Christmas shopping without buying. You get the energy without the hassle. Our minds are funny things. The very thing that at the moment, we think is going to bring joy, is fleeting and not the fodder of memories that will follow us into our rocking chair years.

Many holiday activities are free. Take advantage of them. Spending time with those you care about is going to stay with you far longer than what gifts you give or receive. If you are alone this year, then try hooking up with a group on, or find a community caroling group and tag along.There’s not really a way around it, we must do at least some Christmas shopping. There are alternatives to the traditional mall experience. Consider buying gently used clothing for your thrift shop savvy friends. reFresh Boutique is excepting holiday gift returns for store credit through January 6th (requires receipt), so you can shop without worry. Or you can purchase a gift certificate. Christmas shopping at reFresh lets you give a beautiful gift that won’t leave you scrambling for money in the new year.

Merry Christmas
