Below are local shops in NOLA that carry fashion forward styles, basics for work,
and contribute to the world. Best of all, they are all owned by women.
Perks: $6 flat rate shipping and rewards program.
Armoire carries sizes 0-20 with most items being $150 or less. You can earn gift certificates twice a year through the rewards program. Website and social media are updated on a regular basis and they even have secret sales.
Sarah's Pick: The Silky Collared Set.
Sarah's Curvy Pick: The Keyhole Maxi.
Location: 3102 Magazine Street
Perks: Everyday basics and mimosas.
I haven't been into bodysuits since I did baby ballet, but Mia got me back into it. These neutral basics and graphic tees are work friendly with most items starting at $23. Swing by Saturdays for mimosas and cake pops.
Sarah's Pick: The Black Jumpsuit
Location: 3231 Metairie Road
Goods That Matter
Perks: Handmade gifts that give back.
Goods That Matter carries gifts made in the U.S. Each item donates a percentage of proceeds to charities, and I love that each item reflects the message of the designated charity. Get free shipping with orders $75 or more.
Sarah's Pick: Rebuild Candle
Location: 5706 Magazine Street
Perks: Turbans galore for a sequin moment.
Marrow Creative worked her voodoo magic to include wire into turbans making it easy to style. She's just started her bandeaus, but her sequin sleeve
t-shirts paired with any bottoms is #Yup.
Sarah's Pick: Colorful Striped Turbans
Perks: Trendy jewelry for sensitive ears.
I get rashes whenever I wear mixed metal jewelry, so I stick to wooden or ceramic accessories. Eveille Jewelry designed her line for people with sensitive skin like hers. Starting at $14, you get trendy pieces without the red patches.
Sarah's Pick: La Femme Earrings
