Everything and everyone has a story.
Especially jewelry and accessories.
This is the premise from which Her Story Boutique is based. Every item the shop carries has its own unique story from a strong woman.
Sue Morreale started her business, Lotions and Potions, in 1990 in Niagara Falls, then moved to Williamsville for 10 years and then to the Elmwood strip.
I just bought a pair of tuxedo pants — you know, the silky kind with tapered ankle — but I don’t know how to wear them. What are my options?
Before you embark on this path down androgyny, you need to first accept one thing: you’re probably going to feel a little masculine when you put them on, but that doesn’t make them any less sexy.
In fact, they may…

Shopping in any city can be difficult; Buffalo is no different.
While the selection of stores at the Walden Galleria Mall is immense, spending hours walking around searching for one particular item can be frustrating.

I went on a big job interview last week and I had an outfit crisis at the last minute. I’m in my early 20s so I’m not ready to dress ultra-conservative quite yet, but I’m also realizing I should own more than one pair of black pants. Help! What are my options?
Dressing for big girl things like job interviews can be really tough, since most of us in our early 20s…

Unless you’re color blind or a hermit—or an unfortunate mixture of the two—you’re aware by now that October serves as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, praising survivors and raising money to aid the fighters.
The Elmwood Village Association is doing its part to raise awareness through the Shoptober Bra Crawl scheduled from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday spanning a large stretch of Elmwood…
I just bought a form-fitting black dress with cut-outs for a sorority formal, but now I’m stuck on the shoes. I don’t want to wear boring black and blend in with the rest of the girls, but I’m worried that a bright color will look tacky. Can I pull off a colored shoe?
Someone once tried to tell me — in a Buffalo boutique that shall not be named, no less —…
