Jolie Gotique is a mobile fashion boutique based in Greenwich, Connecticut. Penny, the owner, is a local Greenwich resident with an amazing fashion style that she infuses into her business. Twice a year, Penny gathers a team of creative professionals to do a spring (and then a fall) photoshoot for her business.

NEW Heirloom Boxes!

I announced previously my need to find a new vendor for the heirloom presentation boxes that are included in my top two Collections.
