The Greer Guide to Austin: Kiki Nass

For Kiki Nass proprietor Joannah Hillebrandt, clothes aren’t just a commodity: they’re a calling. After attending FIDM in L.A., she worked her way up in the footwear industry, becoming then the youngest buyer in Nine West’s history. Though undeniably a go-getter and fashionable force in her own right, Hillebrandt credits much of her early success with having good managers to work for, and it’s an experience that she says motivates her to make Kiki Nass a positive, supportive space to work in every day.

The positive energy in the shop is undeniable: from the light and airy spaces to the enviable selection of clothing, jewelry and home goods that would make any Austin woman swoon. For Hillebrandt, good business is just good karma: She talks about how studying Buddhism has influenced her commitment to being present and fostering good energy around her.

“I wear the hell out of my clothes,” Hillebrandt says, adding that she tells everyone she knows to invest in quality over quantity when it comes to their wardrobes. Hillebrandt stocks exclusively from vendors whose values align with her own.

What to Expect at Kiki Nass: 

  • looks for every closet: premium denim, breezy tops, and on-trend dresses
  • boho, yet super versatile jewelry
  • unique, artful pieces for home and baby
  • an elevated, yet totally accessible overall vibe that epitomizes "Austin cool"

Though in the Lamar Union complex for nearly three years, Kiki Nass first opened in 2005, at a location on 12th St. until it shuttered in 2009. Hillebrandt was there from the beginning, and after moving to Florida following the shop’s closure, she eventually returned to Austin to re-open Kiki Nass in its current location.

“Clothing is an all-day hug.” - Joannah Hillebrandt

What sets Kiki Nass apart is its staying power: Coming back after a post-recession closure, it remains committed to doing good business and providing an excellent retail experience, maintaining a human connection with the clothing it sells. The shop is very much a physical manifestation of Hillebrandt herself, putting her money where her mouth (and heart) is. Kiki Nass is all about paying homage to the connections and the luck that she’s had throughout her career, and the results are magic.

The Greer Guide to Austin: The Special and Powder Vintage

In an unassuming storefront nestled within the bustling bar and restaurant scene of East 6th, husband and wife team Hannah Wood and Johnny Ogle have created something, well, special.

A physical embodiment of creative collective intelligence, The Special captures the spirit of ‘Austin cool’ with a blend of vintage furniture and decor, gifts, and, now, a killer vintage wardrobe.

Powder Vintage has taken an in-house residence within The Special's retail space, the latest brick-and-mortar iteration of the vintage shop that has been selling on Etsy since 2009.

Its doors open for nearly nine months, The Special is the brainchild of an impossibly cool couple with a shared love of design. Originally from L.A., Wood and Ogle moved to Austin two years ago in search of inspiration and the ideal place to create their dream retail space: a place that’s happy, visually compelling, highly curated and thoughtful, and high-end yet approachable. 

It’s this element of ‘attainable retro-cool’ that they’ve cultivated in their East Austin flagship that makes it the perfect backdrop to Powder Vintage, a menagerie of vintage clothing that transcends time, trends, and occasion. With each piece hand-selected by Powder Vintage’s owner, Karla, the vintage clothing selection within The Special elevates the ‘shop within a shop’ concept to stunning new heights. The range and broad selection of incredibly well-preserved vintage clothing that Powder Vintage has curated is, in a single word, impressive. Karla's favorite piece in her collection for the shop is a cropped crochet jacket from early 1900s Ireland, a testament to the level of quality of the pieces Powder Vintage seeks for its shop.

With her start in vintage reselling in her hometown of Monterrey, Mexico in the mid-‘90s, Karla’s experience in the business runs deep. After selling two vintage shops she started (the first in Monterrey in 2003; the second in San Antonio in 2008), she moved to Austin in 2009, selling vintage wholesale both online and to shops around town. After buying a piece from Karla at the Citywide Garage Sale over a year ago, Wood and Ogle invited her to sell her clothing at The Special, and a match made in vintage lover’s heaven was born.

Wood’s current favorite piece at The Special is a bright red iron candlestick holder; a piece whose identical twin went to Leslie Hernandez at Aro, where Passport Vintage used to reside. It’s another example of the Austin vintage community supporting one another, both financially and philosophically. When asked if there’s any commingling between Powder Vintage and The Special in terms of merchandising, Wood laughs knowingly, saying that she and Ogle “literally can’t go to the bathroom without trying something on!”

The Greer Guide to Austin: Passport Vintage

To say that Maria Oliveira and Ryan Lerma know jeans would be an understatement. With the Instagram tagline “vintage jeans for modern butts," their vibrant blue brick-and-mortar arguably holds the best vintage denim collection anywhere, in Austin and beyond...

Having worked in retail management together and with a combined 14 years of retail experience, Lerma and Oliveira teamed up and went into vintage reselling together while still living in Chicago, where they relocated to Austin from in 2016. Though they considered other spots to make a move — L.A., Nashville, and Atlanta were on their list — they ultimately concluded, after much research and scouting, that Austin was the vintage capital of the U.S., and was where they could see their business grow.

It didn’t take long for Passport to develop a devoted following of vintage denim devotees: since Passport’s launch two years ago, it has transformed from an all-online sales platform to a stint in East Austin residency (its first physical iteration was in the second floor of Aro’s space on East 5th) to its current cool-hued digs on South 1st.

Specializing in vintage denim and t-shirts, Passport creates an experience in their shop, encouraging visitors to take in the ambiance that each separate room within the shop creates. With every piece in the store hand-selected by Oliveira and Lerma themselves, stepping in to Passport evokes the feeling of walking inside the home of an impossibly cool, undeniably fun friend with an eye for only the best in vintage. When it comes to sourcing, Lerma and Oliveira share an attitude of “anywhere and everywhere” to find those classic throwbacks that are forever in demand.

Beyond their bread and butter of vintage denim and tees, Oliveira and Lerma are very selective with any other pieces they bring in to complement the look they’ve cultivated for the shop. A mix of new and vintage accessories — which has included sunglasses, cameras, and shoes at different points in Passport’s lifetime — rounds out the outfits that make the shop’s Instagram feed a favorite among vintage fans worldwide.

Lerma and Oliveira tap into power that an inspiring physical space can have— and into the community that it can create. Longtime Instagram followers of the shop who come to Austin will make a point to visit the shop, and it’s this connection to their customers and their clothing that makes Passport an absolute must-visit.

Top 10 Boutiques to Shop at Le Garage Sale

It's almost here, and I'm beyooooooond excited! 

Twice a year on a weekend (Saturday and Sunday), Le Garage Sale is held at Palmer Events Center. 100+ boutiques gather together with the best deals ever ever ever. 

What's so cool about Le Garage Sale is that it's not just about shopping. It's about celebrating local businesses and women entrepreneurs in one space. While it's not exclusively women, the majority of boutiques and shops are represented or owned by women. 

The energy, the fun and, of course, the fashion make this my favorite Austin event I've ever attended (and I did grow up in this little town, so I've been to a lot of stuff over the years). 

Whether you're a first time attendee or have loved Le Garage Sale since day one, it's good to have a plan going into it. You should always know what to bring...

  • Clothes you can easily change in and out of throughout the event

  • A reusable bag to put all your treasures in

And you should also know where to go first. Yes, you'll probably hit up every boutique in the place (or at least that's my plan), but you don't want to run with the stampede. Do your own thing, girl. 

Here are 10 of my favorite boutiques that will be attending this weekend to get you started on carving out your own little treasure map for the big event. 

Happy Hunting!

Bloomers and Frocks

1628 S 1st Street
Austin, TX 78704

#greerguidetoaustin


A new year means exploring new shops in Austin, and Bloomers and Frocks is a perfect place to start.

My favorite part about Bloomers and Frocks is the variety of pieces in the shop. Not only do they have a diverse selection of garments from the greater part of the 20th century (1920's -1980's), but there are variety of sizes starting with XXS and going up to XL.

Rarely do I find this at vintage shops. 


Watch our 1st video and subscribe to our channel for more interviews and wardrobe tips for your every day style! 


Owner, Rebekka Adams, could not be more knowledgable about vintage clothing. While personal shopping and styling are a daily part of my life, I wasn't sure where to start in this shop. Each piece is unique, so I didn't know what would or wouldn't fit. Rebekka took my measurements, giving me a clear idea of pieces that would work for me. 

If you're a gal who loves vintage or who hasn't tried it before, but loves the idea of it, Rebekka makes the process of finding what's perfect for you simple and satisfying. And if you need help styling your new oldies into the wardrobe, you know who to call

The East 5th Street Block Shops



Passport Vintage

This shop is located upstairs from Aro and specializes in recreating vintage denim into your perfect pair of jeans. Maria, the owner, tailors jeans into slim fit cuts, while also cropping the bottom for an on-trend look. She also has an eye for rare vintage tees. The result: a collection of pieces that will turn your weekend look into a style statement.

The selection of jeans includes Levi's 501s and Wranglers. 

 

ARO

ARO, the East Austin jewelry shop, celebrates small jewelry designers located all over North America: Austin, California, Brooklyn, Canada. When you walk into ARO, the structure, the colors, the lines weave a clear picture of what's in it: thoughtful, modern, feminine art. 

Use code "greer15" to receive 15% off your next purchase at ARO online or in store. 

Byron & Blue

Named after the owner's childhood pup and current fur baby, Byron and Blue houses all the home goods and knick-knacks that make perfect holiday gifts for friends, family and above all, you.

The owner, Alexia, says her most important space to her is home, which is why she decided to open this shop rather than a clothing boutique. The shop does carry one line of clothing though and from now until the end of this month, will host a pop-up shop from Pieceology Vintage

Shop Austin: The October Boutique

Adelante

The concept of Adelante was dreamed up over three decades ago by the current owner's mother. When Adelante first opened in the 1970s, it was located in San Antonio, and many of the pieces that made up the boutique were inspired by or hand-picked during the owner's trips to Mexico. 

The store moved to Austin 25 years ago and has since expanded its labels and space. Still, there are many pieces in this boutique that are definitively south-of-the-border style: embroidered mumus, off-the-shoulder blouses and jewel tones prints. These vibrant pieces separate Adelante from other shops in Austin. 

When walking into this boutique, it's hard not to think Adelante aims to sum up Austin style. Luckily, they do an impeccable job at it.

With everything from the boho blouses to the upbeat casual looks to the vintage embroidered pillow cases to art deco candles, they manage a cohesive aesthetic of clothing and home goods. Much like Austin, it is eclectic and full of energy, but still has a clear identity. It is even known for bring in a collection of burnt-orange-game-day-girl-gear on August 1st, which takes up half of the entire store (and the store is big!) 

This store is tucked away a bit from the road on 38th St., but if you venture in, you will not be disappointed. In addition to all the playful pieces from brands you know (Johnny Was, Lush, Lucky Brand, Free People) and many you may not, this boutique has exceptional gifts (I got many of my holiday presents here last year.) If you walk in, you won't walk out empty handed, so proceed with caution...

COVE

This is a store you can't miss.

First, because it's smack dab next to Perla's on South Congress. The boutique is almost completely glass, so it's a head-turner from the street.

Second, because the shop is fun, fabulous and already rolling out fall goodies.

Jill, the manager, describes the vibe of the clothing as "wearable". I would have to agree with her. All the pieces are trendy and eye-catching without giving you the feeling of "oh my god, I could never pull that off."

You won't have to shy away from any pieces, but instead will covet everything in the boutique.

As Jill said "people feel like they're on vacation when they come in the store." 

The clothes are relaxed and unpretentious. 

Easy to rock tees, sundresses and denim mix in with suede and leather to create a swarm of pieces that any Austin gal would love in her wardrobe. 

This boutique is relatively new. It moved from it's pop-up shop (which was located behind the current store) to it's new location in January 2016. They aren't stopping there though. E-commerce will soon be available on their website, and next year they plan taking over the upstairs to host more of their oh-so cute collection. Take a peak...

DYLAN WYLDE

DYLAN WYLDE is located on South Lamar in a space which has had many lives, this current life being the most fabulous. Once a motorcycle shop in the 1980's, the space is industrial, but the owner of DYLAN WYLDE, Jessica, has brought it color and charm. DYLAN WYLDE carries reasonably priced jewelry, clothing, home and apothecary goods from around the world. 

When I spoke with Jessica, I could see her love of every piece she brought into the boutique: vintage beaded necklaces, African woven baskets and silk blouses that could double as work or play pieces. 

This boutique is not only impressive for what it carries, but it's strong aesthetic and brand. I had to ask where the name came from. 

DYLAN WYLDE is her alter ego: a woman of the sea who is...(you guessed it) wild. 

This is one of my favorite boutiques I've visited, and yes, you should visit it too. It's sexy, playful and powerful in its femininity.

Feathers Boutique

Sometimes when you wander into a local shop, you become thoughtful of your environment in the same way you would in a museum. You examine each piece carefully as you stroll through. With Feathers, this is a must, because like a museum, each piece at this SoCo side-street shop has a story. 

This boutique is filled with mostly vintage and some new pieces (from their in-house line) that all deserve a little stop-and-stare action. There are pieces that have been preserved since the 1800's, and others that were worn by Texas celebrities. 

One of the things I love about this place is that the owner's point of view is crystal clear. This store is a celebration of women who don't follow the rules, but rather create their own path in life, love and style.  

It is not just about selling the clothing, but rather the magic behind it. To say each piece is chosen carefully for this boutique would be an understatement. If you visit Feathers and find something you love, it's inevitable that purchase will yield a compliment or two.

RIO RITZ

This cute little street corner shop is located on Guadalupe next to the new Torchy's Tacos. Originally from Dallas, this boutique was quick to adapt to Austin style when owner, Thais Moses, moved in just a few months ago. It is laid back, boho and very reasonably priced. They also have the cutest little maltipoo mascot, Nala, that greets you at the door (can't beat that)! It's a great place to stop in for easy, breezy weekend wear or casual date night looks. It's a one stop shop boasting jewelry, sunglass, boots, bags and lingerie to finish off your outfit. Just take a look...

Shop Austin: The May Shop

Maya Star

Located on South Congress, this boutique is eclectic, fun and a must-stop-into for playful summer dresses and statement jewelry. This boutique is filled to the brim and will take you some time to search through, but if you're willing to do the work, you're sure to find something irresistible nestled in the racks.

VALENTINES

Shopping is necessary to create a wardrobe that is as fast paced and full of life as you are. And I totally understand: many of you hate it. In the past you may have been stuck with little to no direction on what you should be looking for or what actually works for you. That is undeniably frustrating. 

The good news is shopping does not have to be a mission. It should not cause you to erupt with anxiety the moment you walk in the store.

Shopping is about falling in love with a piece of clothing that you absolutely must have. This is the kind of shopping I love to do. Clothing should always speak to your soul, just like a beautiful song or painting.

Because of this, I created the Shop Austin Style Series: a monthly photo tour of Austin's best boutiques. Explore clothes you'll love, find shops to adore and maybe even get inspired to take a trip across town to find out that your favorite new shop isn't as scary as it once may have seemed.

And if you want a little help along the way, contact me. I'd love to chat. As an image consultant, I uncover your natural beauty, discover your style and help you embrace your creativity through fashion.

Leighelena carries jewelry made by many different designers, but the highlight are the pieces the store creates itself. I am a sucker for cocktail rings, and at Leighelena, there are rings that can be customized. Colorful, magnetic plates can be attached to the base of each ring, so you can match any ring to the look of your outfit. Going into this shop is a mood elevator, and if you're looking for fun jewelry, this is a good place to find it.

VIBE // TRANSITIONAL PIECES FOR TRAIL- BLAZING WOMEN

There seems to be a big focus on sunglasses in Austin and with the weather today, it's easy to see why. What sets Hoiden apart from the rest is the dark color palette of its glasses. That palette extends throughout the store. But they still never loose sight of their femininity, their celebration of womanhood. As women, our personalities are multi-faceted and nuanced, the owner said, so the point of view of Hoiden is exactly that. It is edgy, sophisticated, womanly, and sexy. They have what you need, but also exactly what you want. This store could be in LA or NYC, but the owners always take into account the background of Austin when choosing pieces from around the world. The pieces are for a day like today in Austin when you never want to go home.
