The Attic clothing boutique opened its doors over a month ago as the unique slice of retail in Overton Square's main intersection of Cooper and Madison. It's hard to miss, but since Yvonne Bobo recently installed her kinetic sculpture in the corner plaza right in front of the shop's storefront, it's even harder to miss. Just look for the 30 foot tall sculpture.
With their official grand opening party set for this Friday, owner Alexandra Rushing has filled the 1,300-square-foot space with an enticing array of men and women's apparel and accessories. As I browsed all the clothing and jewelry, I added one item after another to my wish list elated. Some of the key items that are selling fast are the Lola jeans that slim your body, colorful scarves, simple cardigans, Chilly Jilly portable ultra soft pants, and fold away ballet flats.
The stand-out item I snagged right away is the Mighty Purse by Handbag Butler that is not only a sleek clutch but also charges your smartphone! Other than the red shown in the photos, they also come in black, silver, and gold. I can confidently say it will be my favorite purchase of the year.
