After a relentless quick eats takeover of the intersection at Seventh Avenue and McDowell Road, there's a little glimmer of hope that not every inch of it will be consumed by the fast food dump (read: burgers, burgers, and, uh, subs).
The glimmer? That'd be Bethaney Soliere's Boutique Solie, a lovely little shop with an animal-friendly outlook that's freshly relocated from Scottsdale into a unit in the complex next to the former My Florist Cafe.
In the two-level shop with white-washed walls and exposed wood beams, you'll find veg-friendly wares including Blank NYC jeans ($88), Matt & Nat handbags (around $200), Neuaura and Gomax shoes ($90), plus size options, loads of accessories like clutches and sunglasses at every price point, including pieces from local jeweler A. Lea, candles, a little section of kids clothing, and rotating local artwork (pieces from Amanda Adkins are currently on view).

There are also beauty products available, including lip plumper ($8) and Priti NYC nail polish ($13), and spray tans are available by appointment before and after store hours.
Check out the loot for yourself when Soliere hosts a grand opening bash Friday, June 29, from 7 to 10 p.m. with cocktails, snacks, and giveaways. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for more locals to take up residence on that corner -- the unit next to Solie is currently open.
Boutique Solie is located at 1605 North Seventh Ave. It's open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
