For the woman who never has enough shoes

Live, Laugh, Love has everything a girl could want. Complete with shoes, handbags, jewelry and other detailed knick-knacks including picture frames, key chains and cards, the store is worth a look for anyone hunting for gifts.  

It is also a carrier of many exclusive lines, such as Pandora jewelry, Peggy Karr Glass and Lindsey Phillips. Famous for its “switchflops,” which are flip-flops with changeable straps, the Lindsey Phillips now offers ballet flats and kitten-heel pumps more suitable to our Minnesota weather.

All of these shoes also have the luxury of various “snaps” that are changeable as well. Just like buttoning the buttons on a jacket, different straps are fastened to the shoe via a button-like snap. With countless snap and strap options, they are sure to complete any outfit for every type of occasion.

The flip-flops range from $34.99–$49.99 and the straps for them are $11.99–$14.99, but each comes with a free Lindsey Philips signature strap. The ballet flats are $64.99 and the kitten-heel pump is $66. The snaps for these shoes are all $11.99 and can be interchanged between the flip-flops as well.

Staying warm in style

Fringe Accessories is an upscale women’s boutique that has everything from jewelry and handbags to scarves and headbands. These designer-inspired accessories are not only affordable, but continue to be the most current fashions for women of all ages.  

Store owner Andrea Rovner said she takes cues from fashion capitals such as New York City and finds inspired-by pieces that are more reasonably priced for shoppers. She has also recently added select pieces of trendy clothing and is fully prepared for winter’s onslaught.  

The store’s $12 knitted head wraps are one of the more popular items. With one size fitting all, simply undo the button and place the scarf-like band over your forehead and ears to keep warm. Offered in different colors, these would be ideal for any woman who is sick of wearing ugly earmuffs and winter hats during our harsh Minnesota winters. Matching scarves are also available.

The store also offers affordable watches that balance bling and functionality. They feature a rubber wristband in a variety of colors and a ring of diamonds outlining the face. For $30 the watches would make a great gift for any woman who isn’t afraid to show a little personality on her wrist.  

Whether gift shopping for your daughter, wife or mother-in-law, Fringe Accessories features everything from fun and funky to elegant and timeless.
