Sweet Threads 6025 Kruse Drive, #114 (next to the Mustard Seed Market), Solon; 440-519-3819
Sweet (clothing) dreams come true in this boutique, whose eclectic collections suggest New York's funky SoHo district, with Betsy Johnson party dresses right next to structured black pants ensembles. Uncluttered racks, cookies and cider, and low music all contribute to the store's appeal, but what's really great is owner Audrey Bergrin (and her trusty associates). Her expertise in fitting, combined with an artistic eye, makes her suggestions about what looks good absolutely dead-on. Like a good girlfriend, she tells you the truth, even if it means losing a sale. Her maxim is "If you don't feel good in it, you won't wear it." (And if you don't wear it, you won't come back.) If she says, "You look wonderful," you believe her.
