New (to us) Boutique Review: blaec

blaec is an online boutique, with a store based in Santa Barbara. According to the site:

blaec has been in business since 1999, specializing in stylish everyday-wearable pieces. Many of our items are black, because a wardrobe based around black makes it easy to dress with style — whether you’re dressing up or down. Blaec is old English for black, and is pronounced like black. We are located in downtown Santa Barbara. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service–see our customer ratings on Yahoo.

Yesterday was our first time shopping the site, and it will not be the last. There are tons of great, wearable pieces — appropriate for the office or elsewhere — and the sale section is noteworthy.

Some of our favorites, after the jump…


This Alexander Wang linen blazer is a perfect basic, particularly if your office gets a lot of sunlight. ($430).


One normally doesn’t think of denim as an office basic — let alone a denim dress — but this Bruno Grizzo Shirtdress (now marked to $495) is the exception.


Love, love, love this sweater, either as a cardigan or a sweater dress. Dagmar Colorblock Cardigan, now $175.

This is a great office basic, and on sale to boot — Jovovich-Hawk Vivian Dress, now $300.
