Seattle >Hip Zephyr
Something a little bit different. Although the selection here is a bit pricey, its also some pretty kick a$$ stuff that you won't be finding at the likes of Macy's and Nordstroms. The owner is sweet and helpful, as is her dog (well, ok, so the dog wasn't actually helpful). The selection is from a variety of European and US designers, many of whom I've never seen before. I received many compliments from friends and strangers on the coat I bought here. This place is definitely recommended if you're willing to spend a bit of money on a quality, original piece.
Nothing Special Here. If you want to pay $150 or more for a cotton t-shirt, you've come to the right place. Hip Zephyr has great if not over-eager customer service in a cute shop but unfortunately their clothing is nothing special. Also not so different from other boutiques, Hip Zephyr doesn't seem to have much of a selection for girls over a size 8. One positive thing? They have a few great purses, cool jewlery and some jeans you can't find other places. However everything and I mean absolutely everything, is overpriced - only if money pours out of your pores, is this the place for you. (If it does, try donating it to a chairity instead of spending so much on a cotton t-shirt!) Otherwise, keep walking to some of the other cute shops nearby like the Greek Deli next door or The Frock Shop kitty-corner to Hip Zephyr.
