Brookline, Massachusetts: Fashion Capital?
Welcome to Brookline, Massachusetts, a close-knit yet bustling suburb located on the edge of Boston that’s home to countless small businesses. While in some parts of the country local shops and specialty stores are considered dying entities, businesses such as Brookline Booksmith, Eureka! Games and Puzzles, Cleveland Circle Travel, and even Simons Shoes are thriving due to their long history with the community and attention to personal detail.
Nestled along Beacon Street and bisected by the lifeline that is Harvard Street, the neighborhood of Coolidge Corner is home to numerous restaurants, cafes, and stores, (including Simons Shoes!) that continue to prosper.
In Boston, Newbury Street reigns supreme as the fashion mecca of Massachusetts, however we think our little corner of the Greater Boston Area deserves its own day in the sun. Today, we’re featuring outfits made entirely of items available RIGHT NOW online and in store from some of Coolidge Corner’s top shopping destinations.
