I first learned about Sweet M's Boutique at the Here We Go Again consignment sale in April. The boutique's owner, Stacy Maxwell, had a small booth there, and I was immediately drawn to it.
She had the cutest display set up with some fun jewelry and accessories, and a small rack of some trendy, but affordable clothing to the side. She told me she had just opened a storefront in Plainfield at the beginning of April, so I knew I had to visit the store soon.
Just a few days later, I stopped by the Plainfield store at 111 S. Vine St., and it was bustling with customers. Thanks primarily to social media, the boutique has already built a large following among women in Hendricks County and beyond.
The store is small, with just two rooms and a few dressing rooms, but it is neatly organized and easy to browse. I love all of the cute dresses and tops, and there is also a great selection of pants and shoes. The clothing is all modest, figure flattering and trendy. And whether you are going for a classic, bohemian or feminine look, there is something for you.
The other thing I love about the store is that Maxwell is helpful, but not pushy. When I was there, she happily helped one customer put together an outfit, but never pressured anyone into anything. I ended up finding a pretty, mint-colored necklace for just $12. It's been a great accessory to add color to an otherwise simple outfit.
Sweet M's Boutique is open 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. In addition to regular store hours, Maxwell also opens for "Girls Night Out" parties where the host gets 20 percent off her entire order.
