If you prefer boutique shopping to big box, and are prepared to spend a little more for something special that your friends won't be wearing, you'll love Brookline based Mint Julep. Well-stocked with all you'll need for a night out, workday wear and even weekend essentials, Mint Julep's personal service and friendly atmosphere make shopping for yourself fun.
The winner of Boston Magazine's Best of Boston 2012 for women's casual clothing, Mint Julep is filled with fun finds that have been hand selected to appeal to a variety of ages. Trendy clothes and accessories line the walls, but these trends extend beyond those only well-suited for wear if you are 20-something and super slim. Photo courtesy of Mint Julep/Facebook
Name brand denim may be a must, and is available here, but you can be assured that what you'll want to walk out with is that hard to find designer piece you have not seen on the racks of any large discount store. From funky purses that pull an simple outfit together to scarves that add a touch of wow to your go-to top, you'll be hard pressed to leave here empty handed.
And if Brookline is not on your list of places to visit, you'll be happy to know that Mint Julep has a second location smack dab in the middle of Harvard Square.
