We had a dream last night about a shop where they made cake, and the shop itself was made out of candy. We may as well have been dreaming about Coco Coquette. Nestled in the back room of the Maison d'Etoile on Cesar Chavez, this tiny boutique is devoted to glamour. Instead of cake and candy, it offers everything to make your head look good enough to eat. The attentive style mavens will help you choose a wig to suit any flight of fancy, dust your cheeks with stage-quality makeup, and trim you like a Christmas tree with handcrafted spangles and fascinators – all in a relaxed setting that couldn't be more homey and unpretentious. This place is simply delicious.
