Lalalynnie fashion boutique, my latest unexpected discovery, exists among a small strip of unassuming shops down Victoria Road in Gladesville. I spotted this gem of a boutique quite by accident. The array of exquisite and colourful shoes in the display window most certainly was what drew me in to have a look at what's on offer inside.
The vibe is cozy and inviting with French songs softly playing in the background. The clothes on display in all corners of the shop ooze quality and style. Every piece sold here is chosen carefully by the owner Lyndal Camden herself. With a big smile and a friendly greeting, Lyndal is quick to welcome anyone who walks in through the doors. She is helpful when required but blends into the background giving you space to explore if you wish a bit of privacy. This is the ideal situation for a shopper and browser like me who feels too much input from sales people has a smothering effect.
Dresses, costume jewellery and handbags galore pack this quaint little fashion boutique. The many racks inside are packed with an impressive collection of dresses, tops, skirts and pants to cater for the current season. What is unique about this boutique is that the clothes on offer are not of the typical gloomy colors that come out for autumn and winter. Lalalynnie has found pieces to retain that colorfulness in fashion. The choice of shoes on the window that enticed me to come into the shop in the first place only gets richer inside. The shoes ranging from colorful boots to feminine heels is capable of satisfying any fashion enthusiast. Best of all, the items are all affordable fashionable wares that will not max out your card.
There were plenty of wardrobe pieces to choose from and choosing is what I did, heading to the dressing rooms with quite a few pieces in my hand. With help from Lyndal I found what I was looking for, a black number suited for an autumn night out. Acquiring a quality item from a small boutique like Lalalynnie always puts a smile on my face as they offer unique quality pieces that may not be found in the larger department stores or chain stores . I am confident that this is one boutique I will be visiting quite often. The fact that they have an online presence shouts convenience and modernity.
