The Shopping Chronicles

Fashion Formula

These days, the concept of having to drive into the city for designer fashions is as obsolete as last year’s trends. And the opening of ReMixx boutique in Roswell only furthers this case—high-end fashion is alive and well OTP. Owner Candis Rosier has dubbed her shop a “lifestyle boutique,” as she carries fashions, accessories and a wide array of home accents, making the shop a true destination shopping experience. She also holds true to the current trend of high-low fashion, or mixing high-priced designer items with more affordable pieces (the name is a nod to this principle), which means you’ll find chic clothing at various price points from brands such as Maggie Ward, Michelle Jonas and Enza Costa and jewelry from Chan Luu, Thirteen Crowns and RomyGold. And then there’s the Prada, Fendi, Chanel and Dior—Rosier stocks a range of “preloved” designer handbags from the most coveted names in fashion. But this is no thrift shop scavenge: Leveraging her years of celebrity management, Rosier collects her A-list clients’ little- or never-used bags (many still have the store tags attached) and offers them in her shop at an attractive price. And the icing on this fashionable cake is Rosier’s dedication to local charities—a portion of all her profits is donated to local organizations. 145 Woodstock Road, 770.645.7888,
