Best friends Miriam Greemberg and Sofia Mishaan love a good shopping spree. But to their designer-desiring dismay, the 23-year-old besties could never quite find everything they wanted in just a single stop. Enter So-Mi boutique. "We decided to open a boutique with all the labels we love under one roof – it’s always been our dream," says Greemberg. "Every piece here is special."
Adorable dresses by Tibi, Milly, Tricia Fix and more fill the racks, while James Jeans, Frankie B. and Hudson denim are piled high. Treesje handbags, Sergio Zelcer heels, Love Quotes scarves, custom-made accessories and labels like Julie Haus, Ogle, Revolver and Yoana Baraschi are on hand. Lisa Curran swimwear and Cosabella lingerie line the snug shop.
"We want our customers to feel at home," Greemberg says of the warm ambiance. A pillow-packed couch and coffee table invites clients to kick back and unwind. Sweet snacks such as macaroons, Starbursts and bubblegum are up for grabs, just in time for those sneaky sugar cravings.
Cute clothes, one-of-a-kind finds and free treats? Uh, now that’s so me.
