House of Bling
Dragged in the House of Bling recently, I was happy to find a sweeping variety of things my daughter will never wear. That's not to say the merchandise isn't flashy-cool, and less pricey than the ostentatious business title might imply. Truly, anything that could ever bling is here. Wine glasses. Handbags. Panties. Just nothing that goes on men. Which is a good thing. Employees are quick to point out that 95 percent of said bling ducks under $80, which is the rumored starting point at Phipps. The boutique doubles as an event space, capable of housing 40 "Sex in the City" recaps at once. It's a colorful, quirky facet to the East Atlanta Village, best viewed (in my very male opinion) from a beer patio across the street.
