Fashion In Broad Ripple

Here is a blog post from our awesome intern, Alexa.  She recently visited one of our Cultural Districts, Broad Ripple Village, here in Indianapolis, Indiana and found some fun things to write about - take it away Alexa!

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear “Broad Ripple”? For me, all of the boutiques with their fashionable pieces of clothing come to mind. Each boutique is so different from the next; each one full of clothes you won’t find anywhere else. Strolling through Broad Ripple today I discovered a few new boutiques I’ve never shopped  before that I think you should check out.
Redemption is a fashion forward boutique that was full of reasonably priced outfits for summer. Plus, it’s located inside of an old house, so the squeaky hardwood floors and clothes in closets adds character!
Shop Tibet caught my eye with adorable sundresses on a rack outside. Once I stepped inside I didn’t want to leave! Walls of purses, scarves, dresses, and other knick knacks intrigued me.

Personally, my go-to boutiques are Broad Ripple Vintage and Pitaya. Walking into Broad Ripple Vintage is like stepping through a time machine back into the sixties. The smell of incense welcomes you. Ceiling to floor racks of clothing. A variety of accessories to choose from. What’s not to love? This boutique should be on the top of everyone's list when visiting Broad Ripple.

Lastly, Pitaya is full of beautiful and trendy clothing, reasonably priced, and good quality.

There are tons of other boutiques in Broad Ripple that I didn’t have a chance to check out. With July being Independent Business month, it would be the perfect time to shop at all of the boutiques and local businesses that Broad Ripple has to offer!
