A Peek Inside Valentines on 35th

While it can be convenient and easy that Austin is so casual, there's also a time and a place to step up your game when it comes to fashion. Looking good can help you feel good, and that should be reason enough to save your yoga pants and hoodie for the couch. Valentines has just the right clothing, accessories, and fashionistas to help you look and feel your best, no matter what the season or occasion.

Valentine's unassuming yet pristine exterior

For a relatively small shop, Valentines feels expansive and bright. Owner Teresa Windham said she wanted to "create a glamorous haven that encapsulated her passion for art, fashion, travel, design" and she selects every item with the hope of inspiring her clients. Racks are well organized and maintained, and feature a very edited selection of looks inspired by the season. While you may not be able to find much at a low price point, there's usually a sale rack at the back of the store. Regardless of what you may spend, you'll come away with very high quality pieces that, if cared for as directed, will last you a long time. Toward the front of the store, you'll find some of the darker and more bold palettes of colors in the racks of clothing. Racks are organized by palette as opposed to by occasion. You'll find a mix of casual and cocktail wear in nearly every section. 

The original Valentines Too boutique, located in Westlake Hills, features a great selection of shoes, as well as a much larger selection of jewelry. So if accessories and shoes are what you're in the market for, you may be better off at the original location. The stylists at the Valentine's 35th Street location are well versed in the stock in both boutiques, however, so that can help you no matter what you're looking for. Valentines stocks luxury designers like Frame, Haute Hippie, JBrand, Chantelle, IRO Paris, Rebecca Taylor, Milly, Rag & Bone, Tibi, The Kooples and more. You'll also find great gifts and homegoods such as books and candles.

As we said before, the price tags may be a bit more reminiscent of Houston and Dallas boutiques, but when it comes to clothing and shoes, you get what you pay for. Even in the most casual offerings at Valentines you won't find yourself looking sloppy or schlubby - ever. A great bonus? There's a parking lot, so you won't have to carry your overflowing shopping bags too far.
