Love Shack Fancy opened in June, two months later than planned because of the pandemic; but the delay didn’t stop customers from coming to celebrate the new boutique. “It has been one of the biggest openings in the company’s journey so far, which has been amazing,” store manager Johanna Stuart says. “We weren’t really expecting it just because of everything going on right now—people came from all over Orange County for the opening, so it’s definitely a destination spot for fans who are used to shopping online.”
The floral-lined exterior invites you into Love Shack Fancy, where flowing, ruffled, and colorful pieces transport you to a garden-like, vintage-inspired world. Local customers tend to gravitate toward the mommy-and-me selection of matching dresses and swimwear. While Mom shops, children can enjoy making complimentary bracelets from ribbon and beads with the staff. Customers can shop the line of hand-dyed, one-of-a-kind dresses, sweaters, ruffled miniskirts, and more exclusive to the Newport Beach location.
Shopping from home is also available thanks to Love Shack Fancy’s virtual styling appointments. Staff members can assist with finding new outfits through Zoom or FaceTime and can give styling tips. Look for Love Shack Fancy’s first collection of cashmere this season, as well as knits and loungewear.
