Velouria is the boutique for those who appreciate clothing from independent manufacturers and also like the idea that there aren’t many other people out with the same look. Some other boutiques pretentiously avoid sales, embracing a more “what you see is what you get” mentality, but not Velouria. This Pioneer Square shop offers sales on clothing and accessories like bags and hats. You can be sure, whether you’re looking for clothes, jewelry, or home decor, Velouria is certain to have something that suits your interests as well as your individuality. 145 S King St., 788-0330
First runner-up: Momo
Second runner-up: Drizzle and Shine
