What trends are you excited about this summer?
We are most excited about the mix and match approach of style this Summer. Pretty much you can go from boho-chic to feminine and flirty. What’s not to love??
Why did you decided to open this boutique?
Shopping was the name of my game. You may find it a bit suprising but I was a high school Biology and Chemistry teacher for 13 years. Outside of the classroom, fashion captivated me. Pulling from years of shopping and a passion for style I decided to offer home shopping parties over lite bites and cocktails with the latest trends. Six months later in December of 2012, trés Carmen Boutique opened its first location on James Island. A second location is on the horizon. We strive to create confidence through fashion because looking good means feeling good!!!
Tell me about your boutique. What can we expect to find when shopping there? – You can expect to have extraordinary customer service and feel the energy and passion for style from our team. We like to embrace individuality and create a personal shopping experience for every customer.
Complete this sentence: Every girl should own….
Every girl should own a nice dark pair of jeans that show of your best assets no matter what style is trending. You don’t have to be a jeans and tee shirt kind of girl to rock denim. Denim is a style staple and can be used to create multiple looks.
