Looking chic can certainly be affordable. This is what we strive for! At Shahrzad Boutique, we aim to offer high quality items at affordable prices. The key to looking chic for less is finding great quality items you love and will continue to wear.
What is your favorite piece in your shop and why?
Oh my goodness, I love all of our items! But if I had to choose, it would be any color of our classic style handbags. I just love the style, it’s a great bag for work and the every day. Or the ‘cosmo’ tote, which goes everywhere with me. It’s so versatile.
