When I hear the word boutique, several things happen in my head. They happen so fast that I’m not even sure of their order, but nevertheless, here they are!

I lament, “No, not in my budget, which barely meets necessities, much less high-end (Read: high dollar) desires!”
And I remember a time before the time before I knew what money was, before I realized my so-called situation in life, a time when I just thought of a boutique as somewhere it would be super cool to visit–and maybe they would even have tea and cakes!
I’m a realist, but I also believe in keeping childhood dreams alive!
