Apparel & specially sourced ITEMS
VaVaVooom offers apparel items with a traditionally feminine aesthetic, but as part of an ethos of self-ownership. How we adorn our bodies is a reflection of how we love and care for ourselves, mind and spirit included, and how we choose to present ourselves to the world, regardless of other's opinions.
Comfort, pleasing designs, and practical versatility are our priorities in choosing which lines can be found at VaVaVooom. We have made a commitment to source locally made, sustainable and ethically sourced apparel & lingerie & accessories as much as economically possible. We love to represent local craftspeople and artists and encourage those working in our select specialties to contact us.
