Funky, fun, fashionable, fabulous. That pretty much sums of the shop and the owner. Walking into the store in the trendy Magnolia Park district in Burbank, one gets the feeling of stepping into a gorgeous little oasis of goodies.
Audrey K has treasures everywhere! From the unique to the sublime and everything in between, but lets talk about the most important stuff. The CLOTHES! They’re timeless and classic. Audrey handpicks all of her fashions. Most of them have a kind of throwback look, a vintage rockabilly or pinup vibe, without the old school itchy and stiff fabric. These clothes are made to fit a woman baby! Curves and all. Audrey wants her clients to embrace their femininity and not to walk around fretting that they aren’t a Size 0, with no hips. (not that there is anything wrong with that!), but let’s face it, Anna Wintour has gotten under most of our skins. It’s time to shed that idea of only one or two images of beauty. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and Audrey is the Pied Piper of Burbank when it comes to assisting us girls to see that.
Okay, I’ll get off my soap box for now and finish by saying, not only did I buy an adorable, Emerald Green fitted dress, I bought the cutest little white ceramic squirrel ring dish (see pic above). Any store that sells great clothes and squirrel paraphernalia is good by me!
Audrey K is one of the unique shops at the heart of the Magnolia Park’s charm. This block of one of a kind shops has drawn me in since we moved here. My husband found the shop first and has been begging me to wear more dresses. I think our love of “Mad Men” and his love of all things mid-century modern fuels the flame. When you step into Audrey’s charming shop she greets you warmly and invites you to try on these lovely creations unique to her boutique. The dresses are made in Los Angeles and designed by local designers and also by Audrey herself. She encourages you to step out of your fashion “box” and just go ahead and try some of these gorgeous feminine dresses. Audrey will be honest and tell you what will flatter your figure and firmly say no, if she thinks it won’t be the best fit for you.
In my case, I’ve never really developed my personal style. Audrey took the time to talk, just talk about me and what would help to draw out my best features . She also offers a consulting service that goes beyond the borders of her own shop. Ask her about her wardrobe styling service. Think of it as your own personal “What Not to Wear” episode.
In Audrey’s words “No matter a woman’s age, size or career, dresses are the perfect complement to any woman’s style and silhouette.”
When you’re done refreshing your own look, take a look around for great, unique gift items in the store. A wonderful place to shop for the perfect birthday gift. It’s always nice to know that there’s a shop close by that always has fresh and fun gifts when you need them.
Check out the shop’s well designed website. Audrey is great about keeping her site updated with all that is new in the shop. You can order on-line all of the beautiful dresses, accessories, and boutique items. Did I mention the prices? Everything is delightfully affordable. Designer fashion within reach.
Check in weekly to find out the “secret word” and all of the fun going on at this fresh and fun boutique. Keep it #Sassy.
