Lipp Boutique to Open in Metropolitan: Now that you've jump-started your new year's resolution of shedding a few pounds, it's time to spice up your wardrobe with runway-ready looks. And you can do so with the grand opening of Lipp Boutique, happening in February.
Set to open in Charlotte's up-and-coming urban community Metropolitan (1111 Metropolitan Ave.), Lipp will offer "a handpicked selection of established and up and coming clothing lines to carry you fashionably through life," plus shoes, handbags, accessories, and bold jewelry, according to its Facebook. In addition, they'll also carry the official makeup line for Tampa Bay Fashion Week 2010, VA Cosmetics.

Frock Shop Plants Roots in Plaza Midwood: The traveling trunk show that is Frock Shop is finally taking a pit stop. And what better neighborhood than in Plaza Midwood, where all things vintage and cool are celebrated? Beginning on Saturday, Feb. 4, from noon to 8 p.m., you can stop by MoNA (Museum of Neighborhood Art) at 1200 Central Ave. to peruse Frock Shop goodies, generally consisting of resale vintage, name-brand and designer clothing and accessories, in their new Style Lounge.
In addition, take a gander at Frock Shop's in-house label, Revival. From the website, Caroline Cook-Frers, owner, notes: "In my travels for fanciful frocks, I often encounter a piece begging for salvation. A stitch here and a tuck there breathes new life to fashion's past. Revived indeed!"
