Local Fashion: Shopping in Athens
Hi, I'm Lex, the External Relations Manager at Couture A La Cart!
Shopping in downtown Athens is an activity I partake in quite often. There is a wide variety of shops in the Classic City, but some of my personal favorites include Cheeky Peach, Indigo Child, and Pitaya.
Cheeky Peach is a fashion forward boutique that displays a wide variety of pieces from your everyday basics to colorful summer dresses, to a shoe bar. Their prices are affordable, and I can always find a unique item to add to my wardrobe. I recently bought a pair of beige wedges from Dolce Vita that Cheeky Peach was carrying, and they are perfect for all my spring outfits.
Indigo Child is a mix of designer collections, vintage collections, and everyone’s favorite game day buttons and jewelry. My personal favorite, however, is Indigo Child’s array of neon trucker hats. They’re a casual and fun piece to style with athleisure wear for class!
Pitaya offers trendy and simple pieces that fit a college student’s budget. Their shop is merchandised by color, making it easy to find exactly the item you are looking for. The boutique offers both day and night looks that can be styled with some of the many accessories sold as well. I especially love the matching sweater sets sold during the winter season.
There are numerous other stores to shop downtown, but no matter what you choose, supporting small, local businesses is important to the Athens community!
