When mother Ettie Wurtzel and daughter Talia Wurtzel Blanchard opened Squash Blossom in Decatur in 1999, they must have known they were on to something special. More than a decade later, the ladies are striking the perfect balance between funky one-of-a-kind pieces and wearable designer gems. Think of a better-quality Decatur version of Anthropology with brands like Free People, Prairie Underground and Celeste Stein. The shabby-chic store with exposed brick walls is packed with stylish finds — if you prefer the low-maintenance boho-chic style of Rachel Zoe over the skintight cocktail dresses of a Real Housewife, then this is the store for you. Squash Blossom's stylish staffers act as a stand-in for personal shoppers, telling you the truth about how those Joe's Jeans actually make your butt look. The clothes can be pricey, but with a sale rack with duds up to 70 percent off, you can have your maxi dress and wear it, too. 113 E. Court Square, Decatur. 404-373-1864. squashblossomboutique.com.
