Mothers and daughters tend not to agree on much – especially when it comes to clothes. Frequently, teen and pre-teen girls have significantly different opinions than their moms on what is acceptable attire. One new shop in Wilton, Frock & Frill, provides one stop shopping for both women and girls with a spot-on selection that will please everyone!
Frock & Frill is the result of a collaboration between two Wilton Center retail vets, Melissa Thompson and Lauren Robak. The charming boutique located on Route 7, stocks on-trend, but appropriate, tops, jeans, and dresses for girls in sizes 7 to 16, and something special for their moms too – sweaters, jackets, jeans, and blouses that blend casual sophistication with comfort.
Robak says that she and her partner endeavor to find brands that are unavailable at most local retailers and have new items arriving in store continuously. “We buy in small runs because in a small town, you don’t want to see people walking around wearing the same things,” she explained. “These are clothes that you’ll wear every day, but with a little something special in the detail,” added Thompson.
In addition to their well-edited selection of clothing, they’ve also sourced accessories from local designers – scarves from Vagabond’s Daughter, Fino handbags designed by another Wilton resident, and jewelry from The Queens Beads of Redding.
Here’s a peek at what’s in store!
