2 – Sweet Pea

Whether for a low-key house party of a glitzy New Years Eve event, you’re going to want to make a trip to Sweet Pea boutique. I cannot count the number of times Sweet Pea has come to the rescue for me – weddings, parties, work events, bridal showers, my own wedding rehearsal… if I need to look good for something, I know a trip to Sweet Pea is in order.
