I am always on the hunt for new brands and boutiques to shop at. I LOVE supporting and shopping small businesses when I can. I recently discovered Shop Avara and although they’ve been around since 2018 they are a new brand to me so I wanted to share them with you because I think you will love them. I also wanted to share my thoughts in a Shop Avara Review so you know more about the brand and what to expect when shopping.
Shop Avara Review
A little bit about Avara they were founded in 2018 by a mother, who after spending 20 years in Corporate America, decided to take a leap of faith and open her own boutique. Avara handpicks chic and unique clothing and accessories available online and in-store in Dallas, TX. They curate a line of pieces that are high-quality, on-trend, and affordable – most pieces are under $75. The goal is for our “Avaraistas” to love every piece they buy.
I mean high-quality, on-trend, and affordable? Yes, please! A lot of the frilly tops and midi-length dresses remind me of Hunter Bell but at a more affordable price point. I have 3 tops and 2 dresses now from Avara and I am very impressed by the quality of all of them.
Coming from corporate America, I find that a lot of the pieces can easily be transitioned for different areas of life. Whether it’s pairing a top with navy work pants for the office or white jeans for brunch or skinny jeans and heels for date night.
Additionally, because they are based in Dallas they understand how to transition pieces for different seasons. For example, Avara just launched their pre-fall collection which all items can be worn now and transitioned into fall. I love the idea of a lightweight top I can wear now and then layer with a jean jacket and a hat for the fall.
With all of the boutiques out there in can be hard to find ones that have fair prices and good quality. The reason I don’t shop at a lot of boutiques is that their pieces are typically way overpriced and feel like something from China. I know a lot of boutiques go to market and buy a top wholesale for $7 and then charge $120. Avara’s prices are very fair and their pieces are unique, it’s not the same thing you see from every other boutique.
My only complaint about Avara is the limited range of sizes. Some pieces offer XS-XL but some pieces only range in S-L. However, after speaking with team at Avara this is something they are actively working on and I hope to see more inclusion in sizes in the near future.
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from Avara as of lately.
