Dazzling at the Coast

I'm officially scared to post today... holy bejeezus Friday Blogger! You deleted my posts (since returned, thank you) and deleted comments on my blog posts as well as ones I left for others (still an issue, f*ck you). Lammmme!

It was hard to lose the ability to blog, especially when all I saw everywhere were blogworthy scenes... most notably inside the Purple Moon Boutique at Cannon Beach, Oregon. This is the kind of store that you walk in and instantly determine that the clothes you own are absolutely dreadful. Every piece they displayed was stunning and the store itself makes you begin to think of loopholes to the whole "Thou Shall Not Covet" rule...
From the window treatments to the plush floor, the boutique evokes the most flirtatious emotions between you and the interior decor. Oh, Mr. Mirror with your gold crowning, how you do make me smile! And what's that Michael Kors section? You want me to take you off the hanger and drench my body in your silk? If you say so...

I certainly was enjoying myself with the crème de la crème items for sale and the sensational store design but the true testament to the fact that this Boutique knew what they were doing can be evidenced by what The Boy did while I gorged myself aesthetically. Instead of his usual song and dance of standing around with my purse looking like he wants to die, The Boy stationed himself on the gorgeous couch to watch Sports on the flat screen, sip on a Maker's Mark which the store owner made him and enjoy articles from his favorite masculine magazine.
Pleasing me with beautiful clothes is easy, dazzling me with every angle of your presentation is difficult but keeping the Boy not just content but happy while I shop... that is a fete. Purple Moon- you are doing something everything right.
Check Purple Moon boutique out here- if you're going to the Oregon Coast I definitely recommend visiting this boutique. The quality items and spectacular store are definitely worth checking out.

Enjoy your Monday!

OMG, this place is beautiful! & it made the boy happy? Brownie points for that, deff. My mom will drag my dad whenever she goes shopping, he will just go sit but the shoe section, I feel bad for him. The jewelry tree thing, I need that. I so want to work at a store like this.

Everything looks beautiful but the tree has stolen my heart! How hard would it be to find something like that for my room, I wonder:)

Happy Monday!!

If I was a normal guy in a normal relationship I would love having my significant other indulge the pull of their shopping genes in a lovely boutique like that. How considerate of them to cater to those who wait, improving the shopping experience. The merchandise looks interesting and attractive.

As usual, I'm having odd thoughts trying to imagine whether there's a story behind why the boutique chose the name "Purple Moon". It's probably not what I'm imagining. Do you know?

Wow, that store is gorgeous, Caitlin! Thanks for taking some pics for us! I didn't know blogger was having such a bad patch there. I guess it's good I took the week off from blogging that I did!

everything about this store sounds perfect right down to keeping boyfriends happy while we shop :) the pictures are gorgeous and they kind of remind me of an Anthropologie store in downtown Toronto!

boutiques are always so much fun to shop in! although i feel the same way, i can never afford everything i want, and always covet almost the entire store! that place has quite the assortment of gorgeous jewelry.
