If my niece Kelly (or my nieces Cass or Kalen or Caroline) were shopping for a Valentine outfit on a real budget, I'd send her here. Owned by best friends forever Abby and Katie, Smak Parlour bubbles with sweet and sassy goodies.  Mixed in with the original clothing designs are fun dessert plate sets, clever cards, quirky accessories (like my recent find, legwarmer socks) and mundane items (such as a mailbox) transformed with girlie glitter.  An encouraging antidote to chain stores and a candy-pink splash of fun in Philadelphia.
