The more involved I get with the Pittsburgh blogging community the more I find myself taking pride in this city & everything it has to offer. Shopping locally, especially from women-owned businesses, has become very important to me. Through various social & networking events I’ve had the chance to meet some power house women with style, vision & one of a kind boutiques.
I recently had the opportunity to meet Kelly, the owner of Eva Bryn Shoetique. Kelly has created a chic destination shop 30 minutes north of the city. The store is full of must-have accessories from designer shoes to on-trend handbags, Oprah’s favorite slippers and cozy layering pieces. I am so excited to share some of my favorite pieces & what I decided to bring home with me.
“In the walking village of Zelienople, north of Pittsburgh, Eva Bryn Shoetique believes that you don’t have to live in a big city to have access to the latest trends in shoes & accessories.”
I’m a sucker for a great layering piece, so this cutout detail blazer & faux fur wrap were right up my alley. Though you won’t normally find me in a hat, I couldn’t resist trying on this chic red beret. With its’ fuzzy pom & detail stitching, it’s the perfect accessory for the holidays. These beautiful heels I’m rocking are by Lucy Choi, the talented niece of Jimmy Choo. I was truly surprised at how comfortable they were; I may have to go back for the buckle detail pumps.
Another thing that I love about visiting new boutiques is being exposed to brands/designers I’ve never heard of before. The flats I’m wearing above are by All Black Footwear, “a fashion forward contemporary shoe brand that combines innovative materials with retro-inspired designs.” I mean, how cute are these animal printed pointed toe flats?! Though I didn’t snag any shoes during my visit I did take home this cozy teddy cropped jacket by Lush.
If you’re local to the Pittsburgh area I definitely recommend visiting Eva Bryn Shoetique. Not only are the associates super friendly & helpful, but the free street parking & nearby restaurants make this destination shop worth your while.
