If you like boutique shopping, you’re going to love the amazing options in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

Boutiques are small stores that carry items hand-selected by the owner.  Fashion pieces are often displayed in a complete outfit, making it easy to put together a great look. 

Another benefit of boutique shopping is employees trained to help style you and find the perfect clothing and gift items.

I’m going to start with boutiques at the North end of Raleigh and work towards downtown Raleigh. That way, you can easily see what boutiques are close together.

I usually feel uncomfortable visiting a high-end boutique because I’m pretty plain when it comes to fashion (hello jeans and a t-shirt). Still, the employees made me feel right at home and gladly answered all my questions about the store.

I want to return and try on some of the beautiful clothing there – I could really use some help getting out of my comfort zone!

When researching boutiques in Raleigh, I kept reading rave reviews about Little Details in Garner.

To pique my curiosity, I knew I had to make the 30-minute drive south to check it out.

It’s large for a boutique with plenty of beautiful clothing at great prices as well as a huge selection of gift items. (The tops I found were around $30-$40.)
