Shop Local: The Ivory Closet

Shop Local: The Ivory Closet

The Ivory Closet is at 2095 Madison Avenue in Overton Square and carries women’s apparel, beauty supplies, and accessories including jewelry, bags, shoes, and more. Sometimes boutiques have limited hours, but not Ivory Closet. They’re open everyday at 11 a.m. (and at noon on Sundays). Here are the full hours. You can also shop online.

The shop is always full of cute, fashion forward (but totally wearable) clothes and lots of pretty things that I want to buy for everyone (and myself). The other thing about the Ivory Closet is that if you’re totally fashion clueless (aka me) then these people really will walk you through the whole “pick out an outfit” thing that can feel so daunting at times.
