How We Got Started

 The Kiwi Lounge Clothing Store was inspired by a desire to create a shopping experience that honored my favorite feminine styles that were hard to find in my small town.

Due to a lack of stores and the family budget at the time, I think that I started thrift store shopping in 6th grade. I loved finding unique clothes that couldn't be found anywhere (photo above thrift store find, 1940's cotton house dress) and I've always been drawn to the looks that come back around or are trending, but even as a young adult was having a hard time finding new styles that I loved with an affordable price tag.

I started The Kiwi Lounge Clothing Store in 2010 after a trip to NYC. I was working for a jewelry company at the time and was immersed in fashion at the trade shows seeing all the latest up and coming styles. I spent one afternoon out at the city boutiques and saw so many amazing things but ones that were way out of my single mother of two price range at the time. So I decided to figure out a way to curate a collection of my most loved fashion with a strict rule to never sell anything that was more than $60. It's simply not necessary, times and trends change almost overnight, impulse buying should feel good and rewarding. I hand select everything we carry based on quality, a gut feeling, and the desire to offer something unique to my customers that makes them feel special, get excited and feel good about pampering themselves.

Life is short and shopping should make you feel good. It is my desire to bring love and light to all who visit The Kiwi Lounge Clothing Store and be a small but significant part of your journey.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
