Cleveland shopping: My Song
Cleveland has its little pockets of shopping scattered from east to west. One such area on the east side, the DiVine District, near and considered part of Downtown Willoughby, can now boast its first clothing boutique, My Song. I recently interviewed one of the store owners Rebecca MacMillan for an article. Her energy and commitment to the message of the store really drew me in. They have a motto at My Song. "We don't sell clothes, we sell wardrobe solutions." Meaning, they aren't going to sell you another random piece that will sit in your closet. They are going to try to help you buy something that you really love and that you actually need in your wardrobe, which is exactly what I try to achieve when I shop. That often results in, to my boyfriend's dismay, returns and rethinking of choices. Rebbecca said she will encourage a customer to put a piece back if they really have to think about it.
I was able to try on some of the incoming merchandise when I was there including this bell-sleeved sweater dress. Rebecca has a good eye for quality unique pieces. She will only buy 4 of each piece so the outfit you buy is completely original. They also have their own line of unique pieces called Luna. Everything is designed and made at the store.
The prices are fair for that kind of personalized boutique experience. If you can't find exactly what you are looking for, they will make it for you. My Song, has a great energy and presence in the DiVine District, and I can't wait to return.
