better than expected. its a bit hidden, but it came to my surprise that the selection of clothing was superb! great buy (props to the owner). alexander wang. def a plus. the only odd thing was to see bills open in the public on a desk in the middle of the store, but other than that great clothes!
Forget the trend of the moment: This sophisticated boutique offers classic, modern clothing with an East Coast influence..
Minimal decor like exposed brick walls and simple black shelves provide a classy backdrop to the six racks of well-hung clothing. The modern outfits offered connote urban sophistication--this is where women come to purchase a sophisticated cashmere sweater or simple-yet-elegant spring coat, not a throwaway outfit for date night. Two extra-large dressing rooms are separated by heavy-duty brown curtains. Designers include ports 1961, Elijah, Nicholas K and Jarbo.
Great little shop--tall ladies, take note!. I heard about Merge through my husband's co worker (who always gives me tips on where to find long enough sleeves as we are both tall). I have to say, Merge is my guilty pleasure! For one, I can wear most of what is sold there, even at 6'1"!! Patricia stocks some very creative designers (my favorite is Elijah) and gives such a personal service while you shop--makes you feel like a queen. Every piece I've purchased from Merge has enhanced my wardrobe, and I highly recommend this wonderful little shop.
love the service!!!!!!!!!. I have to tell you the service is the best part.I found a pair of really nice sweats for only $36!The sweats were made small but, it would strech out to fit you the right size.Great store!!!
One stylish place, one stylish diva.... I was fortunate to meet the owner Pat, a week or two prior to opening Merge. Being cynical in nature I laughed quietly when she said she was opening up a new boutique on Ballard Avenue. Then when I saw what she was doing, and I was sold immediately. She has created a really nice space, that caters to a woman like few others do in this city. None of the usual clutter and 'trinkity' cr-p that you find in most other shops. Sophisticated, simple, and streamlined are words I would use to describe her shop. The clothing lines she carries speak for themselves. Pieces that you could wear year in and year out, unlike the disposable stuff that you pay an arm and a leg for and wear twice... If you are looking for something unique, classic, and fun, this is the place to go... if all else, just stop in and meet one of the cooler divas in Seattle!!!!
Get yourself a little slice 'a cool.... OK peeps, if you're shopping in the Seattle area, you really owe it to yourself to go to the quaint little town of Ballard where urban cool is alive and well with great bars, ultra hip restaurants and killer little boutiques - the newest and finest of which is MERGE. Located in one of those gorgeous historically signifiant corner brick buildings, MERGE is everything you see on the pages of fashion magazines like InStyle, Vanity Fair and the like. Added bonus...owner Patricia Wolfkill, herself a fashion designer, is there to act as your very own personal shopper. Doesn't get any better than that...go see for yourself!
Must see for the Urban Sophisticate. New boutique in Old Town Ballard....it really does feel like a NYC Loft or hip Soho Boutique. The owner has done a great job of bringing in a wide variety of brands and pricepoints to suit anyone with a sophisticated, urban style. With apparel and accessories it's hard not to find a must have item in this stylish new shop!
Chic Would Be An Understatement. On a recent trip to Seattle, I came across a little slice of heaven. Merge, the latest clothing boutique to open in the Ballard district had so much to offer. Chic designer brands like Nicholas K and Karoo (I walked away with three super cozy sweaters) to some really cool casual pants and cords from Stitch's. I was even surprised to see threads from Jarbo and Black Halo. And if you're anything like me, I can always use a little help in the accessory department. We'll, you'd be in luck here. The owner, Pat, was right there offering her stylish advice on those few select accessories that can add so much to your wardrobe. So, I suppose my only gripe is...I need to jump on an airplane to get there. Enjoy...I most certainly did!!!
