IN Fashion Friday: Birthday Bounty from Bedford

Jacket, Belt, and Necklace (Pretty Woman); Bronze Satin Skirt (Victor Costa, Steinmart); Bronze Leather Boots (Aigner, TJ Maxx)
This isn't the first time I've touted Pretty Woman in Bedford as an unexpected and delightful shopping destination (see prior post).  My mother-in-law, who lives in southern Indiana, introduced me to this locally owned and operated boutique last year, and now it's practically a "must visit" anytime we're down there for a weekend.  The clothes are high quality and well-priced, and the owner is personable and takes pride in getting to know her customers and their tastes.  If you're a regular, she'll pamper you with a cold beverage while pointing out new items that might coordinate well with your past purchases, though she's never pushy and gives frank feedback when she doesn't think a particular garment is the right style or fit.  Her personal approach and candor is much appreciated if somewhat uncommon (My college roommate and I used to go into stores and deliberately put on ill-fitting clothes to see whether the sales clerks would lie about how we looked in them - the amount of false flattery was atrocious, though not surprising).

The cropped, three-quarter sleeve jacket, crystal belt, and oiled bronze and crystal necklace I'm wearing in this post are all from Pretty Woman. The jacket was a birthday gift from my in-laws last year.  The photos don't do justice to its metallic, coppery bronze pattern (metallics are hard to photograph), but it's the perfect complement to a pleated satin and organza Victor Costa skirt and bronze leather boots. It was the perfect Fall outfit for a recent fundraising dinner.

We're heading to southern Indiana to visit friends and family this weekend (and it just happens to be my birthday again), so I'm looking forward to seeing what's new in store at Pretty Woman!  If you're in the Bedford area and looking for something smashing to wear, check it out next time you're out and about.
