‘Scilla Boutique Grand Opening.

October 4, 2010 • Events, Fashion, Shopping


Inside the dressing room.

The idyllic drive to 'Scilla's boutique was an unexpected treat. I'm so use to the hustle and bustle of downtown that I've forgotten how quaint it can be to shop in the suburbs. One of the first positive indicators I received was was finding rock star parking right up front! Truly unheard of in the city and especially if it's for a grand opening for anything.

As I entered the warmly lit store, I noticed the ornate ceiling tile in silver and the plush lavender drapes they used in the fitting room. The interior of the boutique transported me back to a time when women used to go specialty stores like these to get their underpinnings. I thought Priscilla, the owner of 'Scilla did a great job evoking the same intimate feeling.

While roaming around, I was handed one of their signature drinks for the night called a 'Scilla Pink Lady 'Tini. An absolutely scrumptious libation that helped me shrug off the work week in just one savory gulp.

While finishing my delectable cocktail, I spotted this striking slip from Elle Macpherson that had a spring green lace top and smoky blue bottom. A perfect piece to surprise the beau with or for sliding around on a 1,000 count bed sheets. 

I also found a couple of great pajama sets and teddys in cheerful paisleys or fiercely enticing animal prints that are made for lounging or cuddling that special person or pet.  A few other specialty items I was drawn to were the tie-dye thongs from Cosabella, an Ombre sleeping trimmed in an ivory sequined lace, and a collection of colorful activewear gear.

A few of my absolute favorites.

If you're an active girl like me, you know it's hard to come across chic activewear! I was extremely found of this label called Ohm Couture which had these flowy tops that are ideal for doing beach yoga or even Zumba

I would definitely classify this store as one of the gems in the North Shore and I would highly recommend this find to any coquette looking to shake up her boudoir repertoire. Don't wait for a special occasion to stop by, any occasion will do just to treat yourself  to something luxuriously unique from 'Scilla!
