Inside  “Nostra Style House” you will find a selection of unique and trendy women’s apparel. Being not even a year old it’s no wonder why they won the Phoenix New Times “Best New Boutique” award.

To start the new year off Nostra decided to spice things up and relocate from their 6th street location into their new location not too far away on Roosevelt. They saw an opening for the space, and couldn’t help but fall in love with the more urban feel. The interior of the shop is kept simple, only painted black and white, which really allows the colorful clothing and accessories to stand out.

The shop hand picks clothing from local designers to designers all the way from Australia.

They have a new local designer called First and Twenty-Sixth. First and Twenty-Sixth is an independent streetware company that takes pride in representing Arizona. They create wonderful graphic clothing and designs inspired by the freedom of artistic expression.

Nostra also carries vintage clothing in the back, and is in the process of creating another room in the boutique.

Nostra celebrated its first birthday on January 27th, and the future looks bright. They are open Tuesday-Wednesday from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m, and Thursday-Saturday from 10 a.m.- 7 p.m. Their address is 610 E. Roosevelt #141. You can find them on Facebook to check for any events they may be having.

Fashionistas if you are ever in the downtown area this is definitely a place you need to check out!
