With today being the first offical opening day for the Nordstroms that is spitting distance from us, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on our beloved local boutiques......without us we would all look the same!

Here is Lucky's feature on us w/ a link to the entire story!

With its whitewashed floors and barn-like loft, Habit has a welcoming, countrified feel. It's brimming with everyday-wearable pieces rendered in luxe fabrics, such as Uluru cashmere tunics, ultra-soft jersey Lewis Cho dresses, and elaborately tailored Nicholas K fleece jackets.

Sadly, a lot of these stores are no longer here.  A good reminder that shopping local helps out the community!

So this is always quite a crazy scene....and habit will be a part of it again this year.
Get out your claws and checkbooks ladies.  Only the strong survive.

Coming up on six years....

It has been a long, winding, twisty, up and down, in and out six years here at habit. 

We have survived an onslaught of big box stores (hello Anthropologie and Nordstroms), a nationwide recession, three break in's, one flood, the birth of two kids (add two more for my previous manager, Talitha), birds in the store, squirrels in the store, celebrities in the store....and I look back on all of it and realize that I would not have changed a thing. 

Big birthday celebration coming up.....stay tuned.

And thanks nashville.  We look good on you.

Breathtaking Ulla Johnson

A subtle, well fitting store now.
