If you live in Fort Worth and want chic clothing with a hip contemporary edge but don't want to drive to Dallas? You don't have to!

a.hooper & co., owned by Emily Adams located in Chapel Hill, is exactly what your looking for! This cool, hip, sleek women's boutique offers high-end clothing, jewelry, belts and handbags.

So how did it begin for Emily Adams? Funny enough she worked at a.hooper & co. for years and loved it so much – she bought it. That was five years ago and she's never looked back.

Emily is Texas girl at heart - Fort Worth born and raised and a TCU Fashion Promotion grad. Emily has her finger on the pulse and understands the Fort Worth woman. She has honed and perfected the art of selecting wearable clothing. "Our pieces aren't too over the top trendy because it is higher-end. We offer classic clothing - with a little bit of a contemporary edge. Clothing that will last season after season," explains Adams. So how do they balance that small town feel? "We know many of our customers run in the same circles, so we buy limited quantities of our pieces to ensure that you don't see your look walking all around town," continues Adams.

a.hooper & co. focuses on separates that can be mixed and matched. Pieces that will compliment and add to what women already have in their closets. They carefully select their merchandise for their shoppers. They know what they like, know what they need and know what they want.

For fall a.hooper & co. is right on trend – long flowing maxi-dresses, luscious capes, sultry knits, jewel toned silk blouses, shorts (which are PERFECT for our Texas climate!) and small florals (which Emily pointed out she was very specific with her selection to be sure that these florals didn't look or feel too 'cowboy'.) Brands include high end classics like Trina Turk, Ella Moss, Velvet, Michael Stars and Joie as well as some more cutting edge like Karina Grimaldi, Graham and Spencer, Young Fabulous & Broke, Gemma, Parker and Madison Marcus.

And if you're into jewelry – you will love the jewelry at a.hooper co. It's cool, hip, and bold. There is great mix of delicate and dainty pieces as well as show stopping drama pieces. OOO La La! Most of the jewelry is designed by Texas native Amanda Sterett. Supporting local artists – love that! Insider Tip: When you visit the store, be sure to say hello to their little furry helpers…. Lyle, Emily's golden retriever and Layla, Nancy's long-haired Chihuahua.
