Someone once said,
“Always different, always new, always you, always ‘la moda!’”
Fashion, or la moda, is how so many of us express ourselves on a day-to-day basis. Between work, picking the kids up from school, going to the gym or going on a dinner date, our wardrobe can be a fun way to say “I mean business,” or “we should do this again sometime.” With so many places to be, and so many styles to choose from, shopping can be a fun, but often stressful, process. Thankfully, for those of us who live on the Space Coast, La Moda Boutique is here to provide the perfect outfit for every occasion.
Family-owned and -operated by sisters-in-law Lisa and Dawn Vaccarelli, “La Moda Boutique has been bringing designer labels to the Space Coast for 19 years,” said Lisa Vaccarelli.
“Our philosophy is to create a relaxed environment to shop unique, casual and luxury designs, as well as sophisticated, contemporary and couture fashions that will feel effortless and timeless in your closet,” she continued.
La Moda offers a variety of popular high-end brands such as Capri Blue, Free People and Spanx. If you’re the woman who spends an obscene amount of time combing through fashion magazines or filling up online shopping carts, La Moda is the place to satiate your hunger for style.
Does shopping with a glass of wine or champagne sound like the best way to shop? What about access to custom alterations? The Vaccarelli sisters certainly think so. Here, you can be pampered like the celebrity you’ve always wanted to be, and let’s be honest: you deserve it.
Lisa Vaccarelli said the family has been deeply involved in the wholesale fashion industry for over 30 years. Because of this, she promises that La Moda is “always on point and a step ahead, finding your next favorite piece from across the world.”
Speaking of one step ahead, Vacarelli shared with us what trends to look for when transitioning our wardrobe for the end of spring and the beginning of the sizzling summer months.
“You will see longer tailored skirts and midi dresses incorporated with relaxed outerwear,” she said. You may have thought leopard prints had been exhausted, but they continue to steam ahead this year with most major designers.
“Just returning from the New York Coterie show, we have discovered the reincarnation of chain jewelry,” continued Vaccarelli. “It has been brought back from the 80s by Chanel and has set the trend for this spring and summer.”
Whether you want to buy the perfect midi skirt, or the perfect necklace to tie the look together, the women of La Moda have your back.
“Every woman evolves in life and we are changing with her to find what makes each woman feel confident and powerful from within,” Vaccarelli explained.
