RETAIL THERAPY: So I Heard You Like Eclectic

As a shopaholic, it's always exciting to find new places to shop. There's the thrill of something different, something new. So when Jennifer Coffey sent me the link to her new online boutique, I clicked it without a moment's notice. And I am so happy I did because this was the first image I saw.

Two girls in cute, trendy tops on top of an army tank really capture the eclectic and unique selection at Gabby B's. Some pieces are classic with an offbeat taste while others are contemporary, trendy and should be in my closet. Brands are mostly from LA but the store welcomes submissions from local designers which only strengthens their variety.

With tops averaging at $18 and dresses at $26, the Gabby B's prides itself in defying the boutique stereotype and offering clothing that is fun, fashionable and affordable. In this economy, it's not such a bad idea.

Does anybody else have their eye on that zipper-shoulder tunic?

If you're in the New Braunfels, TX area, however, stop by their original store which is housed in a former 150-year-old tin shop. In the three years since it's conception, Gabby B's has opened up two more locations in San Antonio and Schertz, TX. With this new online presence and $6 flat shipping, Gabby B's fabulous finds are available to everyone in the U.S.

Gabby B's also hosts fashion shows in the San Antonio area so if you're interested, check out their Facebook page for pics and info. Next time I take a roadtrip south, I'll for sure be stopping by.
