The perfect outfit can be hard to find. You want something unique that you can’t buy at a chain department store. Pittsburgh is filled with a variety of small, female-owned businesses that specialize in clothing and accessories, making your search for that one-of-a-kind look a breeze.
Eva Bryn Shoetique
Eva Bryn Shoetique, located in Zelienople, believes that you don’t have to live in a big city to access the latest trends in shoes and accessories. Owned by Kelly Carney, Eva Bryn Shoetique offers a personalized shopping experience in a luxurious atmosphere. Kelly lived in Scotland for a period of time and developed her love for shoes while abroad. Soon after moving back to Pittsburgh, Kelly opened up the shoe boutique and named it after her twin daughters.
The shop is primarily a women’s shoe store, carrying a variety of boots, mules, flats, walking shoes, sandals, loafers and more. They also feature beautiful handbags, jewelry, belts, statement jackets and other accessories. Customers often rave about the large window display showcasing rotating products.
The key to Kelly’s success is the personalized shopping experience in a beautiful, casual atmosphere. The knowledgeable staff is ready to guide you through the variety of products and show you what’s trending.
Rue Boutique, founded by Ayellet Rubinstein, is a lifestyle store that offers high-quality, contemporary shoes, clothing, gifts, fragrance and home decor. This hidden gem includes some of the most unique products in town. The charming store gives every visitor a personalized shopping experience, which has led to loyal shoppers for years. Ayellet is proud of the shop’s customer retention over the years. The educated staff is ready to help you find your next outfit or long-term investment piece for your wardrobe.
Their website features a large inventory of products, including sale items, but the best experience, according to Ayellet, is the in-store experience at McCandless Crossing. Many exclusive brands are available here including Velvet by Graham & Spencer, Frank and Eileen and Scotch & Soda. Shop from the current fall inventory this season.
