Trendy and Chic Designs at Collette’s

20130529_1158022 Great Cities, 1 Great University, so many fun, eclectic shops! Handbags, jewelry, shoes, denim, dresses, tops, jackets, and more can be found at Collette, located in Chauncey Village at Purdue. The designs are trendy and chic and feature today’s latest fashions.

I love fashion and unique styles.  Collette’s offers well-known designer brands as well as unique brands from up and coming designers.  The styles are a mix of bohemian, rocker, hippy, etc.  One of my favorite designers, Free People, is offered.  The shop also has make-up along with jewelry made from local artists.  There is a back room in the store that is full of discounted items, which is the usually the place I head to right away.  Designer brands are knocked down 30% (if not more!).

20130529_115711When visiting this shop, there are three things you will notice right away; beautiful clothes, a rustic atmosphere, and smiling, friendly workers.  Workers greet the guests enthusiastically and offer to help them select the perfect gift or personal shopping item.  I love this offered assistance because I need to have reassurance when buying something.  My sister loves skirts and I picked out the perfect birthday gift for her.  It was long and flowy and she loved it!  The interior of the building has the rustic, old world charm; old barn wood, panels, painted wood, etc.  It is lovely and comfortable.
