Here are five things to know about Thread:
- It has a European influence. Guice, who is leaving a job in corporate finance to embark on this adventure, lived in France for six years. She’s drawn to Euro styles that are classic with a trendy edge and often in neutral colors. The shop’s lines include, among others, Maison Scotch and Deca.
- It boasts “accessible fashion.” The shop’s feel is warm, almost soft. The clothing is “on trend but not over trendy,” Boyle said. It’s comfortable and age-appropriate for moms. (The denim, for example, is higher-end — but the boutique doesn’t carry any super-low-waisted styles.) And though most prices are boutique-like ($100 or so for sweaters, a couple of hundred for dresses), you’ll find jewelry for $25 and tops for $28.
