Best Women’s Boutique
Splintered Heart – For the last two years, women’s clothing boutique Splintered Heart in Hermosa Beach has said it offers the hottest styles in clothing, accessories and unique gifts at reasonable prices. And this year, our readers agree. Located on Aviation Boulevard, the alternative clothing, accessories and gift retailer says that it’s able to offer more affordable prices than downtown boutiques that pay higher rents to be near the pier.
“Being a small store gives us the freedom to select unique lines with cutting-edge styles for today’s current fashions,” the store’s website reads. “We believe that every woman should feel beautiful and dress affordably without compromising quality or their style.”A local based retailer, Splintered Heart understands the value of offering customers the best for less.
“We spend more time finding the best fashions from local designers and offer unbeatable customer service.”
Styles range from cozy, soft hoodies and denim jeans to camo tops and dark gothic-inspired looks to frilly skirts to tie-dyed summer dresses. The store carries an assortment of accessories that includes oversized rings, rhinestone buckles, Swarovski crystal-studded belts and cuffs. Don’t be surprised if a peace sign, skull, flower or, of course, heart pops up here or there.
“Keeping the romantic side of the store alive with art from all over the world,” Splintered Heart carries jewelry, handbags, metal art, magnets, crosses and more, all handmade by local artists. Swarovski Crystal Dog Collars are also available, as well as Holistic Health Extension, a soy-based, gluten-free pet food.
