Since we love shopping for everything from apparel and beauty products to culinary products – we thought adding a Shop Talk section would be fun. In this section we will bring you new stores from all over the world (online and brick & mortar), interviews with shop owners, unique boutiques, and other times we may just have fun and just do a little shop talk!

Are you a lady that loves to be on the cutting edge of fashion? Or, are you a lady that wants to not only have the latest and greatest fashions for yourself, but also for your pets? If you responded with a, “well DUH Swanky Girl!”, you probably already know about and frequent Carrie Ann Boutique in Uptown Park. Yes this shop is where West coast fashion forward styles meet up with Southern charm and swank. During a recent visit I had an opportunity to grab a few moments with Carrie Ann Sanders and do a little shop talk…

Q. Carrie Ann, tell us a little bit about your stores personality?

A. Fashionably classy, styles for a wide range of customers, and options for any occasion and price point.

Q. Since we are officially in full Summer mode, give us a few wardrobe must-haves for this season?

A. Maxi dresses, short/flowy dresses, high waist denim, crop tops, gladiator sandals, dressy shorts and rompers. 

Q. Word on the street is you have some exciting things happening around the store during the August timeframe – can you share any details?

A. I’m so excited to be sharing that we are doing a face-lift at Carrie Ann. Let’s just say everything will be taken up a notch from the appearance to functionality.

Q. Now I’m gonna put you on the spot with this last question…give us your top 5 favorite designers?

A. I have so many designers that I love ranging from very high end to more reasonable. Chanel, Rachel Zoe, Yoana Baraschi, SJP, Christian Louboutin.
