The Barefoot Blazer Boutique
Having a kimono in your wardrobe is a great transition piece. They're versatile and will dress up any outfit in any season. In the summer, you can wear it to the beach, and in the fall, you can pair it with jeans and a bodysuit. The kimono featured from Barefoot Blazer Boutique is one of our favorites! Don’t want to carry a bag while out and about? We love their key ring bangles! They come in a variety of colors and prints. Plus, it will be easier to find your keys in your bag!
Rhode Island Spirits/Rhodium
Rhodium is a women-owned distillery and New England's only LGBTQ+ spirits brand with a welcoming river-side Tasting Room in historic downtown Pawtucket. With special attention to flavor, every Rhodium gin, vodka and liqueur contains fresh, farmed, or foraged ingredients.
