The boutiques listed here are all local businesses geared towards a youthful female market. They are all great places to look for a designer piece or a great cocktail dress. They are by no means the only places to shop, as there are plenty of chain retail stores downtown, such as Marc Jacobs and Urban Outfitters, but these places offer a much more unique shopping experience.
My new favorite, Fabr'ik excels as a service-oriented, small name boutique. The girls who work here are very helpful and sweet, so don't be scared to ask them questions. There are two floors of women's fashion, including accessories such as jewelry, shoes and belts. As with any boutique, sizes and quantity are limited, so although there is quite a bit of merchandise, it doesn't take up too much space. Dresses are mixed in with sweaters and more casual wear, and the clothing, for the most part, is relaxed and pretty. The prices are also very reasonable, especially if you find your size in the clearance section.
Hidden somewhere between a tattoo parlor and the overpowering Marc Jacobs, this tiny boutique is a wonderful place to go dress shopping for any casual to semi-formal occasion. The space is a bit cramped, and there's only one sales associate, but the clothing changes frequently, and they offer a lot of great stuff you won't find anywhere else. The prices are a bit higher than Fabr'ik, but this is definitely a fun, feminine place to shop.
The trendiest boutique in Savannah, James Gunn is also one of the largest. They offer everything from designer denim to dresses that will make anyone feel pretty. Prices here can be very expensive, so unless you have money to spend, this place should be reserved for special occasions. Their new location is bright, funky, and obviously geared towards a hip, youthful crowd, just like the clothing.
Most people know Civvies as a somewhat upscale vintage store, but it is more than that; in addition to buying back and selling high-fashion, slightly-used clothing, they also sell plenty of new items for a lot cheaper than most other boutiques. The dresses here are fun and trendy, and if you can't find the dress of your dreams, check out the hundreds of sunglasses and accessories. It ensures everyone will find something they just can't live without.
Possibly the priciest of the boutiques listed here, Copper Penny Shooz is the place to go, especially if you're looking for something a bit more formal. This combination boutique has as many shoes as it does dresses, along with other clothing items. You'll recognize most of the names here as high fashion brands, and they have the price tag to match. Since most of the other boutiques carry less formal dresses, this is the best destination if you need something a bit more elegant - and you don't have to leave for matching shoes!
All of the places listed here are located on Broughton Street for easy one-stop shopping, but don't be afraid to explore beyond the boundaries of Broughton. Several other vintage stores are located a few blocks north and/or south, as well as The Gap, Banana Republic, and more. Savannah also has two malls, as well as an outlet in nearby Hilton Head, so don't spend all your money in one place!
