On Old Lafayette Venue sits a quaint little boutique by the name of Omar + Elsie. Owned and run by Abby Dobson, the shop oozes with stylish charm. Upon arriving in the store you will immediately be drawn to an old black and white photograph of a dreamy couple with stars in their eyes. That couple just happens to be Omar and Elsie, the inspiration behind the store itself. Growing up, Abby would spend her summers among new shirts and shoes working in her grandparents' men's clothing store in Maysville. That's where her obsession and love for fashion began and now where she finds success. The boutique is the perfect mix of Southern Charm and Soho elegance, offering a range of luxury names and items. Being a shoe lover myself, I was especially smitten with their variety of heels, boots, and sneakers. It is also a fabulous place to find gifts. One of my favorite finds were custom made coasters and cases, which are O+E originals. If you are looking for a shop that will make you feel at home in spirit and chic in style, Omar + Elsie is the place to be.
