Davis Square boutique Suneri has opened its second location at 205 Newbury Street (taking over the old Luna Boston space), and I managed to sneak over during my lunch break today.
All I can say is that I'm very impressed - great sales help, airy layout and a well-edited selection of pieces by little-known international designers. In fact, the only designers carried by Suneri that I had heard of are Genetic Denim and Nieves Lavi. It's so nice to have some new options that you don't find in every other store!
New Brahmin already did a nice rundown of Suneri and the sisters behind the store (way to beat me to it, Liana!), so I thought I'd focus on some of the interesting pieces I came across.
Three skirts in particular caught my eye, which was really a downer because I promised myself I would stop buying skirts that I can't wear to the office. (It's a casual office, but let's face it, micro-minis are never work-appropriate.)
If you know me, you won't be surprised that two of these skirts are purple:
Water Color Print Organza Silk Mini Skirt / Ostrich Feather Skirt
both by L.A. brand Fumblinfoe
The third skirt was a fantastic architectural shape with a graphic square pattern. It would have probably swallowed me up whole had I bothered to try it on, but I love it nonetheless.

And, why yes, that is a 20% off sign you see in the background! To celebrate their opening, Suneri is offering 20% off all clothing and accessories and 40% off all shoes. Plus, the prices are fairly reasonable to begin with, especially for Newbury Street.
I left with two breezy spring tops (below), and a pair of narrow linen pants by Israeli brand Ronen Chen. (What, you didn't think I'd walk out empty handed, did you?)
