COMING SOON: Swanky Habits (www.swankyhabits.com)

Hi! *taps mic* My name is Veronica & I am a shop-a-holic. I love to shop, I know, I know what woman doesn’t! NO but seriously if it was a drug, I would have died from an overdose by now. I am head over heels in love with fashion, there are so LEVELS to this shit! Do I know the history of every designer, every cut, fabric or stitch no but I know what works! It’s not cute having a gap between the arch of your back/backside & the pant waistline, or a shirt hugging all the wrong areas, too tight, too big, too short, too long it’s all just a huge cluster faak. I don’t care what size you wear, if you’re short/tall, thin/average, thick/chubby, fat or obese finding what works for your body takes patience.

I was definitely a late bloomer to the more trendier look, I was a hip hop head growing up so Jordan/Nike kicks, sweats & fresh tees was what my wardrobe consisted of. As my body started changing & my curves became curvier I had to lose the baggy clothes & started wearing more “fitting” clothes. It took me a bit to really feel comfortable in my skin & own my look. My style works for me, works for my shape & most importantly I rock my clothes not vice versa.

I like to look good but being a single mother shopping can be a challenge. I hate having that spending guilt, so I like to shop knowing that I am not breaking my pockets. One morning I woke up & three words popped into my head “online clothing boutique”.  A few days later I sent a text to my girlfriend, Jamie, & asked her if she wanted to join me on this venture. She said “Yes!” & from that moment we hit the ground running.

Swanky Habits isn’t just another online boutique, our goal is to provide quality clothing at unbeatable prices. We want to empower the everyday woman to step her sexy up,  feed into their shopping habit without the guilty conscience. We want every costumer to feel like they are getting their money’s worth & feel like a million bucks!

Jamie & I understand having to work within a budget, we totally get it. That’s what sets us a part from the rest. Swanky Habits isn’t about marking up prices 5 to 6 times, we are about making you feel sexy. We want to inspire fashion ideas, give you a little push to step outside of your normality when it comes to fashion. Think of us as your personal stylist, need some outfit suggestions with your purchase, or have something from your closet you want to match with something from our store, no problem send us an email!

If you live within 15 miles of Sherman Oaks, CA & would like to host a party please email us at swankyhabits@gmail.com for more details.

Here is a little sneak peak…we launch next week! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter @swankyhabits
