GET ALL THE DETAILS HERE {affordable boutique style}I am so thrilled to introduce you to our Featured Site Sponsor for the month of May, the tres fabulous online boutique This gorgeous site is owned by one of my oldest and dearest friends, Alysha Ritter, who owns and operates the real-life Bliss Salon & Boutique in Bellingham, Washington.

this month's featured site

Having a BFF who owns her own boutique has some definite advantages, and for years now, Alysha has been my saving grace when it comes to style. What I love most about her shop is that it is not at all overwhelming. Every single piece is hand selected by Alysha’s amazing eye. She weeds out the fluff to pick only the best cuts, patterns, and fabrics, but still manages to keep her prices extremely reasonable. It is almost like having my own budget-friendly personal stylist!

  22. I am a new mother…every article of clothing I own has a spit up stain on the shoulder. The only pants, tops, shoes I have purchased in over a year have been for my 7 month old son.
