Style-hungry bloggers, shoppers and fashion enthusiasts gathered at Cow Hollow’s Chloe Rose boutique last week to celebrate the shop’s first anniversary. We stopped by to find a party in full swing, as guests perused merch, noshed on mini red velvet cupcakes and rose water-infused bubbly.
A native of Lake Tahoe with a noticeably sweet and disarming demeanor, Chloe Rose owner Marissa Olson got her start in the retail fashion industry about five years ago during a stint in Hawaii, when the allure of a 40 percent discount on all Juicy Couture merchandise at a local boutique was just too good to pass up. But after that first fateful opportunity, Olson fell madly in love with the industry and went on to pursue her dream: attending fashion school at FIDM in Los Angeles.
Now she stocks her sweet little Cow Hollow shop with labels such as Cynthia Steffe, Myne, Gold Hawk, Left on Houston, Rebecca Minkoff and local names such as jewelry designer Erin Hakansson.
Last but not least, tucked away at the back of the boutique was a photo booth complete with an array of fun accessories (you know, because everyone needs a Viking helmet fix every now and again).
