Aquarius Boutique....Simply Exquisite

When I was invited to a blogger event celebrating the second anniversary of Aquarius Boutique....
I had no idea I would experience sensory overload!
Sara Ash Jessop, the 28-year-old boutique owner, has created an atmosphere which is stunning.... and even difficult to leave.
After four years as a jewelry designer, Jessop desired to open her own boutique, AQUARIUS, founded on her unique voice and an eye for Fifth Avenue elegance.
She decided to take a San Antonio boutique a step further...stepping all the way to NYC and LA for merchandise.  Most boutique buyers in our city stick to attending market in Dallas, but Jessop wanted stand out pieces which could not be found anywhere else around here. I would say she reached her goal.  I wanted to savor each selection for its creativity and beauty.

Fabulous artwork pieces sit among equally fabulous fashion as one enhances the other.  
Architectural...geometric...organic fashion...all of it can be found here.  For those in San Antonio wanting a cutting edge, unique, fashion forward look...the dawning of the age of Aquarius is the way to go (sorry, I just could not resist!)

I predict Sara and her staff will be celebrating many more anniversaries!!
She brought in the ROARKE NYC trunk show of statement beaded scarf necklaces for an anniversary celebration!!  ROARKE NYC was founded in 2009 by Mighonne Gavigan and former Bergdorf buyer, Latitia Stanfield.
And various paintings by local artists Franco Mondini-Ruiz, and Bryson and Holly Hein Brooks of Married with Paintings Collaborations.
On days when I need a fashion boost injection, I will head over to Aquarius just to soak in the creative and the fabulous.  I hope she will let me bring a soft leather recliner and a cup of tea...I might just stay awhile!

Have a wonderful Tuesday, everyone!


  1. Lots of lovely items here--a feast for the eyes. I'm most interested in the snakeskin look clutch. Is that the real deal or a fabric look alike?

    1. I believe it is the real deal, Terri...but I am going to see them tomorrow and I will ask and get back with you! I agree, it is beautiful!

  2. I am in love with those scarves. They are amazing!

  3. Don't you love it when you discover a place like that? It is so delicious to be surrounded such lovely things. I love the color of the walls, too!!!

  4. I love the portrait of the woman in a fur stole. It is so LUXE looking! I wish I could have that for my bedroom.

  5. Love the green bag. Have something similar in brown and it is very useful for day and evening.

  6. What a wonderful overdose of beauty to start a day, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
    I want it all, my dear Pam.
    have a lovely Tuesday.

  7. GOOD MORNING SWEET PAM! Oh this shop, how invigorating of an atmosphere! I love the aqua walls and that painting with the red dress? MAGNIFICENT! Thank you dear Pam, for coming to visit with me yesterday; I was indisposed, teaching as a substitute. I hope your journalism class went well! Thank you for the kind comments! Have a super week, Anita

  8. That place looks amazing- I love the framed art pieces, the bright turquoise walls, and those beaded necklace/scarves/thingies. I can imagine spending hours exploring the treasures there.

  9. Gorgeous - I love the oil paintings, and the checked zipped sweater. What a wonderful place to shop.
