evolve (that's not a suggestion, it's one of our new favorite boutiques!)

After spending a terrifyingly large sum of money on last weekend's purchases you would have thought we'd have scared ourselves frugal. Unfortunately, as long as there's still money in the bank, I have found ways to successfully overcome the nauseating feeling of buyer's remorse. Hence a Saturday afternoon visit to the wonderful evolve boutique in search of the-bag-of-my-desire (evolve is the only boutique in the Southeast to carry the coveted Ashley Watson bags).
Here are just a few compelling reasons why you should high-tail it over to Emory Village:
• everything in the store has evolved (i.e. been recycled, re-purposed, reused), but with such ingenuity. You would never guess that lux leather purse you're holding used to be an oversized-80s jacket.
• the owner Joyce is one of the nicest, least pretentious boutique-owners we've met (though we find this is generally true of most Decatur-area shops)
• apart from being socially/environmentally aware, everything in the store is really gorgeous and not just trendy
• they carry one of our favorite ATL labels: Esperanza as well as the aforementioned Ashley Watson line

Yes, just like Frasypoo's dog, Ashley Watson bags are incredibly cute and worth their weight in gold.
