The Touch of Sass boutique, located in Austin, TX, offers something many other boutiques don’t: an accessory-only place where women can go to find anything from purses to jewelry to pair with their latest fashion statements.
Centrally located in Austin since 2006, Touch of Sass has filled women’s closets with accessories for any occasion. Recent owner Angela Hampton believes, “this is a go to place for beautiful things.” From as little as $35, women of any age can find unique accessories for personal use or gifts.
After pitching the idea to her husband a few years ago, Hampton finally became the new owner of Touch of Sass on September 1, 2012. For the six years before she became the owner, Hampton always relied on Touch of Sass as a go-to place for accessories. Having never owned a boutique, Hampton admits the work has been a hectic, stressful learning process but states that, “She would never have bought the place if she didn’t love it”. With new products arriving at the boutique almost daily, Hampton is excited for this new adventure, as she hopes to bring in a more diverse crowd.
Never considering herself a “fashionista”, Hampton grew to enjoy fashion and all things beautiful. Despite having a “conservative” style as a mother of two, she is always known for adding bold shoes to dress up any simple outfit. Discovering her love for Austin and its boutiques since 1998, she firmly believes that, “you can make more of a statement with jewelry than clothes”. However, she realizes that Austin is filled with different people and styles, where not everyone accessorizes, and intends to bring in clothing after her first year of ownership.
In the upcoming months and as more inventory comes in, Hampton hopes to host events at Touch of Sass. Anticipate a “new owner reopening” and, closer to December, an event where women can pair jewelry and handbags with their “little black dress”, all while getting their makeup done.
The city of Austin has much to look forward to with Touch of Sass, as Angela Hampton seems to be adding a little “sass” to anyone who walks through the doors.
Conveniently located in Central Austin, TOUCH OF SASS, recently featured in Austin Fashion Report, has Jewelry to FALL For. This fabulous boutique has anything one would ever want in their closet. Whether you’re looking for game-day gear, a new purse or a statement piece, Touch of Sass offers a variety of accessories that are sure to sass up any fall wardrobe. CC SKYE, Manic Trout, Urban Posh and Leighelena are only a few featured labels that are carried here. Be sure to stop by 500 North Lamar and grab these hand-picked fashion favorites while they last!
