I've been raving over and over again that Houston is quickly becoming the next New York when it comes to upscale boutiques, trendy fashions and exclusive parties. Just shy off the buzz of Houston's inaugural Fashion Week, Haut Chocolat held its Grand Opening soiree on October 28, 2010 and in no other words to describe it...it was Haute.
As irony would have it, one's senses immediately become reminiscent of the delectable nature of mint chocolate as you're surrounded by the boutique's theme colors of chocolate brown and mint green. Coincidence??? I think not. What better way to lure women into a trance by not only hypnotizing them with brilliant fashion but also tempting them with thoughts and offerings of chocolate? It's every woman's two guilty pleasures all combined in one boutique and conveniently located in the trendy and chic River Oaks Shopping Center.
With sizes ranging from 0 to 12, Haut Chocolat has something for every woman. The trends are fresh off the runway from notable designers and can easily be incorporated into every woman's wardrobe. Could it be? Sex in the City (Houston-style???) If so, this store is for the Carrie Bradshaw in you. Not a Sex in the City fan? Well none other than Gossip Girl's Serena van der Woodsen (played by Vogue's fashion "it" girl, Blake Lively) has sported a look or two from Haut Chocolat's designer collection.
Still not convinced to shop at Haut Chocolat? The broad array of styles range anywhere from business wear, casual wear, fun and flirty to the ultra-glam cocktail and formal attire. Prices range from $95.00 to upwards of $375.00 or more for items but who are we kidding? Quality has no price tag. The attention to detail and high quality of fabric for Haut Chocolat's clothing items and accessories are beyond comparison. Add a nibble of the store's custom-made "couture" chocolate bar and you have a receipe for perfection.
If you're looking to diversify your wardrobe and nourish your inner diva, Haut Chocolat is the boutique for you. Stop by to experience the awe of fashion's runway favorites right in your neck of the woods. Visit www.hautchocolat.com for more information on store hours and directions.
