Tucked into one of East 11th striking new modern builds, Olive boutique is packed to the gills with great clothing, shoes, and accessories. Olive is the kind of boutique you go to when you don't want to look like every other girl on the block, or when you don't want to support a sweatshop. Olive stocks pieces by independent designers like Nova, Isabel Wilson, Esby, Charlotte Stone, and Tiro Tiro (just to name a few!). If you're looking for pieces that are even more unique, you can poke around Olive's well-curated vintage selection.

Olive isn't just a great place to shop for yourself- you can find so many things to give as gifts, which makes it a perfect place to stop in now that it's the holiday season. Check out some of our favorite recent finds below.


Bright, bohemian, well-stocked interior of Olive

The selection of sunglasses at Olive leaves nothing to be desired. You'll find a great variety of shapes, shades, and prices. There's also a small selection of handbags, as well as shoes. If you're shopping for someone who loves accessories, you've come to the right place!


Great basics along with fun accent pieces, as well as a selection of sunglasses

Olive's super creative, boho selection of mix and match stud earrings is so on-trend, as are the metallic hair clips. We love the pieces of leather used to pin the earrings- this is something you could use at home to keep track of extra earrings! The blankets and matches are perfect for stocking your house or as a gift. 


Jewelry, accessories, and gifts

What's better than gold jewelry you can layer with any outfit? Nothing! These pieces are gorgeous, simple, and great for throwing on with a minimalist outfit. You can take your outfit from running errands to a nice dinner out with just a few of these pieces. The jewelry at Olive also makes for great gifts, and in the spirit of giving, you'll be supporting independent designers.

A plant is a gift you can truly give to anyone- man or woman, old or young, acquaintance or close friend. And when it's cactus, it's great decor and nearly impossible to kill. Olive has a great selection of potted plants toward the rear of the shop. The plants and pots are small to medium sized- great for sticking on a coffee table, window sill, kitchen counter, or bathroom counter. The little details like that really make a home (or shop, in Olive's case).


Great gift idea- a plant! 

Olive describes itself as being able to champion "effortless dressing -- think: elevated basics, fun prints, easy day dresses, classic jeans and smart jewelry" (source).The neutrals below demonstrate that clearly.
