dream•er (ˈdri mər)
1. a person who dreams.2. a person who escapes into a world of fantasy
I'm always looking for boutiques that celebrate the beauty of those who dream through their clothing. I want dresses that appear like clouds, details that appear like crocheted flower petals and designs that make me feel comfortable and free. Sometimes finding a boutique that suits your taste seems as unlikely as spotting a bear through binoculars.
I found Dream-ers and it was adoration at first glance. The boutique is home to flower-patterned lace dresses, vintage inspired shapes and enough earthly beauty to make a saint swoon. My favorite thing about Dream-ers is how they continue to practice the art of being a seamstress. Each piece is hand crafted and carefully put together which is hard to find in this age of machines and mass production. The work of a seamstress allows the freedom to order a customized fit, how nice to feel beautiful no matter the shape you arrived in!
The founder Yanique worked at Chanel for 5 years and it was there where she began to dream of starting her own label. She witnessed on-site seamstresses and a generous amount of effort and quality that went into creating each piece. Yanique herself is a dreamer and believes in following through on those little thoughts that float through your head. If she hadn't pursued those dreams that may have once seemed crazy, dream-ers would have never been born.
(!) Note to dreamers: go climb that mountain!
It is a beautiful boutique so I put together images of my favorite pieces.
If I were to be wed tomorrow, I'd be happy to wear any one of these as my wedding dress
