Best Boutique

Proper & Prim

Last year, sisters Teresa and Ashlie O'Day decided to expand their Fargo business to the Twin Cities, opening Proper & Prim in the Lyn-Lake neighborhood. The store offers clothing that's both stylish and affordable: sparkly statement necklaces, flowing summertime dresses, cozy sweaters, cute tops, and eye-catching clutches. Inventory changes quickly, so repeat visits are never redundant. Shopping there won't kill your wallet, either, as nothing will set you back more than $100, with most items priced in the $35 to $75 range.
