Sad news: Beckley Boutique, a designer-filled mainstay on our essential shopping list, cool bathrooms map, and blogger party roster has officially closed its West 3rd Street doors. "I want to put 100% of my time and energy into building my brand in a strategic way," owner Melissa Akkaway exclusively tells us. "It's bittersweet closing the store because I love my team and will miss my clients!"
Akkaway adds that her label name will change from Beckley by Melissa to just Beckley. The boutique will most def be missed, but we look forward to seeing what Akkaway has up her sleeve for the line.
