New Boutique Narcisse

Posted by Brett Glass on Fri, Oct 31, 2008 at 2:47 PM

This isn't a Halloween post, but since the vibe of this six-week old shop is so lovely & dark, it's a good day to write about it.

Co-owner Dawn Bush says that she was "bored with stark boutiques where you feel like you can't touch anything." Plum-colored walls, ornate chandeliers and the odd skull certainly set Narcisse apart from other area boutiques.

Narcisse is the only shop in America to carry Danish brand Noa Noa, whose fall line was inspired by the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper phase.

Everything is for sale at Narcisse, including the furniture, chandeliers, and lamps.

When I asked Dawn about her price range, I was braced for upwards of $500. The Danes aren't known for making affordable anything, after all. A nice suprise: prices range from $80 - $250 for dresses.
