Hey Everyone!
So I’m at home, chillin in the ATL with the fam…I had an early flight this morning (8am), so couldn’t prepare anything for today. Thankfully one of my new interns Alisha, (yup that’s right, there are more), contributed a post today about two of her favorite hometown boutiques, Lux and Shoe-nami. We’re trying to take The Fashion Bomb national and international; this is the first Boutique Spotlight that isn’t in Brooklyn or Atlanta! If you also have cool hometown boutiques that are a must visit, e-mail me at thefashionbomb@gmail.com.
Now on to Alisha’s post…Enjoy!
Hey girls and guys ,

New intern Alisha here, hailing from Tennessee!
Thanks to Claire, I’m going to attempt to blog on one of favorite things: finding new boutiques. Every city has at least one shop that its natives just can’t live without. You don’t always have to be in New York or L.A. to find the hotness!
My first pick: LUX Style (906 S. Cooper St.Memphis, TN 38104)…


…Tucked away in the ecletic and trendy Cooper-Young area in Memphis, Tennessee is a true gem, LUX Style. Opened in 2004 by Tadd Feazell, LUX brings true women’s and men’s fashion to Memphis via Brands like Diesel, Andrew Christian and Double Zero. Any given weekend, you can catch hip fashionistas shopping for the hottest shoes, apparel and jewelry while a DJ spins right there on the sidewalk. Check out LUX’s new online store at www.luxmemphis.com or visit them on Myspace at www.myspace.com/luxmemphis
A few of Lux’s hot items:

Alluring Jewelry
Men’s Shirt, Romme Homme, $89
Dress, Nelli, $169
Boot, N.Y.L.A., $178
My next Boutique Pick:
Shoe-Nami (3412 Poplar Avenue Memphis, TN 38111)…

…When you want to find the cutest, yet inexpensive shoes and accessories to accent your ensemble, definitely hit up Shoe-Nami. Though the flagship store is in New Orleans, Memphis received its own piece of the Crescent City after Hurricane Katrina. Even after being nestled in a popular shopping area for nearly two years, many still don’t know about it. From wedges, to platforms, flats, boots, flip flops and pumps, Shoe-Nami has it all. The best thing about the store is the shoes are color-coordinated. What more could a fashionista want?
A few Fashion Bomb worthy choices:
Red Patent Leather Wedge, Gen.E.Ration, $34
Red Patent Leather Clutch, Karma, $44
Brown Faux Croc Clutch, Galian, $40 (Blue, $44)
If you’re ever in Tennessee, make sure to stop on by!

Great Job, Alisha!
These interns are life savers….
Hopefully I’ll have time for some mail bombs tomorrow.
Until then…
