Belly & Baby and Hopscotch

Goosefeathers and G2

For ten years this boutique has been on the radar of Corpus’s most stylish dwellers. Goosefeathers carries a mix of bohemian dresses and tops by Nanette Lepore and Trina Turk alongside True Religion jeans and Mystique shoes. Owner Tiffany Foster currently loves anything with embroidery, bright colors, and a beach vibe suitable for the coastal locale. Peasant blouses and floral print dresses by Johnny Was score top billing as well. Two years ago, Foster and friend Kelley Cortese started their own clothing line, Chase n Sully, which features silk and cotton/silk tops and dresses. Add a piece from their jewelry line, Everett Locardi, to finish the look. G2, the men’s section, lives in the back and features button-down shirts from 7 Diamonds and graphic tees by English Laundry. 4252 S. Alameda, Lamar Park Center, Corpus Christi (361-980-1388). Open Mon—Sat 10—6. Closed Sun.

Belly & Baby and Hopscotch

Fashion-forward moms-to-be know to go to Belly & Baby for the latest in maternity wear (tent dress be gone). Expect to find stylish ensembles by Michael Stars and Olian. And an assortment of other goodies: Sister store Hopscotch carries baby and children’s clothes, diaper bags by Lilly Pulitzer and Juicy Couture, and other essentials. Owner Stephanie Harrison and her sister Sarah Graf, who runs Hopscotch, work with as many Texas designers as they can find—towels and burp cloths from 3 Marthas, in Dallas; plush blankets from Swanky Blanky, in Plano; hand-screened children’s T-shirts (think Longhorns, horny toads, and bluebonnets) by Corpus native Ashley Woodson of Dogwood 32; and blankets stitched with hand-painted birds on muslin made by Corpus resident Grace Berios under her Little Bird Vintage Designs. 3818 S.
