Yesterday I went to a pop up shop in downtown San Antonio for Zelle boutique, an online boutique based in San Antonio who got chosen by PopUpSA to have a pop up shop downtown from December 11-19th.
Zelle boutique is owned by 2 twin sisters Michelle and Christine. They started their boutique a little over a year ago and already have a huge following base. You can find them on social media @ShopZelle and find their website at shopzelle.co. Christine said although they had a huge online based following, they wanted to interact more with local bloggers. The pop up shop was the perfect opportunity to get us all together in the same place to network and of course do what fashion bloggers love to do, shop!
Right when I walked in I was greeted by the twin sisters and offered snacks that ranged from Macaroons, Poinsetta Punch, a variety of other cookies, and crackers with ham and cheese. The shop was set up so cute and artsy, you would think that they were permanently housed out of this location with the way everything was so beautifully set up. One thing I loved most about the decor is that most of it was hand made, Christine told me that shes very into crafts and she said she made a majority of the decorations. The shop was on the river walk with some stairs leading up looking into the shop so Christine made window decorations that were made out of white cone solo cups attached by fishing string and had letters from Urban Outfitters that spelled out “Z-E-L-L-E” as shown behind me in this picture.
The accessories wall was definitely my favorite though with the string lights and the picture frames of different art work. They had a wide range of accessories from different styles of sunnies (one of which I bought), bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and fall accessories such as headbands and scarfs.
I love that Zelle caters to everything you could want from all kinds of clothes, accessories, and shoes. They are a shop that offers it all! Many boutiques have very cute clothes and jewelry but a majority of them are very over priced, I love that Zelles shop is affordable and everything is good quality! I got two tops, sunglasses, and a bracelet for around $5o, which is usually how much I would pay for one shirt at any other boutique!
Sunnies – $15
I tried on this top and absolutely loved how comfy and versatile it was! I can dress it up or dress it down and accessorize it in anyway. I originally had just purchased the black one but then I thought about it and talked myself into getting both colors because it was so hard for me to decide which color to get! The tops were only $20 which wasn’t bad at all! I think they will definitely be my go-to tops this winter.
Gold spikey bracelet for arm candy – $10

Before leaving, I was handed a goodie bag which included free earrings, sunnies, a clutch, a coupon with 20% off my purchase, their business card, and a note pad tat says “Hello Holidays”.
Zelle is the place to shop, with two amazing sisters who are sharing their passion for fashion with all their products, they are so caring and easy to talk to and they love to talk fashion with you! One thing that really stuck with me was when Christine told me that they own this shop as a hobby, they aren’t trying to just make a profit from it but they truly care about their customer relationships and making people happy! If you’re in the San Antonio area be sure to check out their pop up shop until December 19th at 140 E. Houston St. Suite 40 , San Antonio, Tx 78249. Even if you aren’t in the San Antonio area I recommend you check their trendy shop out online, I’m sure you will fall in love with their collection!
