I first of all want to thank everyone who has supported SSB since we opened in March of 2011 & even in the year before that with our trunk shows. This has been an exciting journey for me & I have been able to support so many different causes, meet amazing people & learn more about myself than I ever could have without Southern Swank.
Deciding to close this store has been a decision I have spent many hours in prayer about & shed a lot of tears. More than anything because of the wonderful customer relationships I have built & the amazing girls God has blessed me with during the time we have been open. I am so thankful for everything & everyone.
During the last year God has began to deal with me concerning writing books & devotionals for women (writing has always been a passion of mine) & has recently began to open doors for me for full time ministry. One thing I have learned about God is that sometimes He will ask you to give up something you love & you think is so great but it is only to lead you to something greater. I know this is a necessary step to be led into the next phase of my life.
I wanted to share a quote from Pastor Jentzen Franklin's book "Spirit of Python" that describes me & this time in my life so well...
“ I don’t often feel very wise, mighty, or noble. In fact, there are times when I feel like I fail God miserably. In the eyes of the world that spells failure. But in the eyes of God, it is exactly what He is looking for—those who will be dependent upon Him to do great and mighty things.” I am far from perfect & feel like I am the last person on earth He could use, but thankfully God isn't moved on how we feel but on our obedience & willingness to allow Him to use us.

So, while this is a sad time for me, it is also so exciting as I take this step of obedience into what God is calling me to do. Thank you again for everything you have done to be a part of SSB!

Now Let's talk business..
We have not set an exact close date but it will be by the end of May & our Official Store Closing Sale Will Begin on Tuesday 4/28.  We will still honor gift cards & store credits up to the time of closing but urge that you go ahead & use them as early as you can get in so that you don't forfit them. If you have a return from a purchase prior to today's date (& still within our return policy limits) please go ahead & return it asap. The website will close at the same time the store does. 
All sales made during our Closing Event Sale will be final

Much Love & Many Blessings

Spring Trend: Pastel Blazer

We LOVE blazers. Period.  No matter what season, color, or style... they are always flattering.  Oversized, classic, tuxedo, pastel, frilled, and the list goes on.  They do what a cardigan can, but with a little extra cinch and panache.  A blazer is a very stately and confident piece of clothing.  Not matter the woman or outfit, she will make a statement in any room.  Even if you are only wearing a graphic tee and leggings, throw on a blazer and you simply POP!

This spring Pastel Blazers seem to be hitting the runway, retail stores, and your closet in a fast way.  Well, we could not be happier! We love this trend!!! Not because it is so simple to use with such an amazing impact... but because it is so much fun to wear!

Perfect with a Romper or Dress... Just to add a little something extra.

Sweet as a Peach Blazer: $29.50, Mint Condition Romper: $49.50, Seahorse Necklace: $40,
Rectangular Pave Bracelet: $40, Bound & Determined Wedges in Taupe: $36

Great with your Winter or Spring Whites for a clean and polished look.

Sweet as a Peach Blazer: $29.50, White Camisole: $15, Clean Slate Skirt: $34, 
Tortoise Necklace: $40, Gold Cuff: $21, Rectangular Pave Bracelet: $40, 

And great with Spring Patterned leggings to take you from to a step up from casual.

Sweet as a Peach Blazer: $29.50, Black Camisole: $15, Gold Drip Enamel Necklace: $19,
Gold Cuff: $21, Rectangular Pave Bracelet: $40

We have been running slim on these lovely blazers (which just so happen to be a steal), but we have more coming in on Friday!  Also, those lovely denim jackets you were promised... Will be here today!!  Can't wait to see you in store or your order pop up online!

Inspiration Piece: Denim Jacket

Levi's released it's "Type 1" Denim Jacket, it's first, in 1936.  Clint Eastwood showed men how to bare their denim in the Westerns of the 1960's... And even though women were wearing them long before, Thelma and Louise showed women a thing or two about denim in 1991.  The iconic movie rocked the box office and the fashion world forever!  
Well... We decided to take this iconic wardrobe staple and play it up with some of our great new dresses & rompers to show you how perfect we can make it work!

Green Pendant Necklace: $36

Now, Please don't think that we are only advocating to wear this amazing jacket with just a dress... We LOVE it with everything down to t shirts or leggings.  There is nothing a denim jacket can't make its way through.  No matter, Preppy, Bohemian, or Punk Rock, a denim jacket always has a place in your closet!  We have a brand new shipment coming in tomorrow - They will only be $36.50! Keep watching us on Instagram, Facebook, & Pinterest for our new Roadhouse Blues Denim Jacket to hit online!  We just wanted to give you guys a little sneak peak! Comment and tell us your favorite ways to wear a denim jacket! Talk to you on Thursday!

Pinspired Outfits

Pinterest has proven it self as a great tool in the social media world.  It can be a marketing tool, an inspiration board, a recipe book, a wish list, and the possibilities go on and on.  So many people, including all the ladies here, sometimes use Pinterest as a point of inspiration, whether it is a craft, recipe, or outfit... so now that idea is forever "Pinspired!"
