Help REFLECT Apparel win Best Boutique in Pittsburgh

30 Aug

I usually don’t promote/push specific stores, restaurants, or brands, but Reflect at Settler’s Ridge has become a favorite of mine, and so I’d like to help them out by promoting this contest for them.

Please consider voting “Reflect Apparel” in Robinson as Pittsburgh’s Best Boutique.

You won’t be sorry – – the owners, who met  while working for Michael Kors, have done a great job of giving Pittsburgh the fashion facelift that many felt it has needed.

They scour the country to bring you fabulous garments from both established and up-and-coming designers. Their clothes are a mix of California cool classics and trendy “this-moment” looks.

To vote for them, simply go here and vote Reflect as your favorite boutique: http://www.whirlmagazine.com/2011/04/whirl-awards/
