"I’d be lying if I said I didn’t secretly wish for a pocket-sized Michelle Parparian to sit on my shoulder and whisper fashion advice into my ear every time I visited a Salvation Army or yard sale. The lady’s got a total knack for snagging amazing vintage pieces and pulling them all together for one classic and cohesive look." - Terra Sullivan, Freelance Writer"Flea market fanatic Michelle Parparian has an eagle eye when it comes to spotting vintage treasures. And lucky for you, she prefers the thrill of the hunt to the satisfaction of wearing a unique piece." - Fab.com
"Wow Factor: The house-turned-vintage shop contains several themed rooms. Try on new lingerie in the hot pink Powder Room or delve into the Walk-In Closet room that's filled with vintage dresses arranged by patterns and color (a godsend for those seeking that perfect red dress for Valentine's Day). They have designer dresses, shoes, hats and other accessories from Prada, Oscar de la Renta and DKNY. After you customize the perfect outfit, hit up the best room in the house - the kitchen, called the House of Sweets - for a cupcake. It's where Watkins bakes custom-ordered treats such as Peanut Butter & Jelly and Key Lime cupcakes (but they always have vanilla and chocolate available). They even deliver, making House of Sweets a big hit with bridal showers and birthday parties." - Heather C. McCalla, Sun-Sentinel
