Making one’s own clothes requires corralling a herd of sheep, feeding them rainbows to dye them different colors, and hiring a professional hairdresser to braid them into sweaters. Re-examine the importance of ewe time with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $65 worth of women’s apparel and accessories at Moda Mia Fashion on Blanco Road.
Moda Mia Fashion styles discerning fashionistas in trendy dresses, jewelry, and more at cash-conserving prices. Scour scores of chunky bracelets ($13+), sparkly rings ($13+), and cavernous handbags ($31+) that swallow car keys, lip glosses, and remaining intentions of staying organized. A draped kimora dress ($68) makes for spritely entrances into forthcoming cocktail parties, and pairs of rock-star skinny jeans by L.A. Rhinestone ($69) elicit raucous exits from grocery stores. Accent scores of spring and summer finds with shoes, such as iridescent pearl sandals ($32) or sharp red flats ($34) to add bejeweled pop to any magazine-inspired ensemble. Others may opt to raid racks of full-printed finds, including lively dresses from Barcelona Spain, which embody more Mod-inspired moments than a Twiggy-inspired walk-off.
Moda Mia Boutique
Feathers, fringe, sequins, and straps are a pretty common sight at Moda Mia. These and other distinct touches are what makes the clothes here so covetable. But it might also have to do with their uniqueness, too: the owners travel far and wide to seek out new trends and to gather the eclectic pieces that fill their contemporary women's clothing shop. The selection spans classic and modern tastes, with a hip inventory of tops and dresses in floral and geometric prints, vintage-inspired jewelry, and boots and sandals.
