Moxy Lounge Feature


How and when did this online business venture come about?

The development of MOXY Lounge has been a long time in the making and will always be evolving, however MOXY Lounge launched on 3.13.13  at….you guessed it! 3:13pm (Ha!)  I began selling vintage pieces the summer of 2009 at a booth at Eastern Market every Saturday and continued every summer thereafter. 
One day I woke up and felt extra ballsy (moreso than usual), and decided to start designing the website!  With the recent online launch we have added a few modern pieces and are in the process of uploading our vintage pieces on a daily basis.

I have always been surrounded by the most creative, motivating, and supportive people.  I wanted a way to bridge my love of empowering, networking and shopping together and Voila!  MOXY Lounge! 

Tell me more about Moxy and what it stands for.

My favorite part! By definition to have moxy is to have a self-possessed confidence, an attitude of fearlessness in everyday circumstances.  Moxy is to be bold, courageous, and sassy!  Good stuff right?!? 

My vision for MOXY Lounge is for it to be a platform for inspiration, motivation, networking …and of course, shopping!!!

“MOXY Lounge Presents” (posted every Friday), gives fresh, young designers, artist and entrepreneurs a chance to showcase their work and talent, and by giving costumers the opportunity to purchase high quality designs all while giving back to the community!

Entrepreneurs who demonstrate that their social enterprise endeavors have considerable benefits to the community through their work with young people are more than WELCOME!

 A percentage of ALL proceeds benefit organizations in the surrounding communities doing awesome work with the young entrepreneurs of the future!

What is your target market/customer?

At MOXY Lounge, we are our customer. Because of this, our job is an easy one: inspire and be inspired by cool women the world over.  Anyone who has Moxy!  We are all about good vibes, great energy, amazing women and empowerment.  If you’ve “got moxy”  meet us at the Lounge!

I noticed this because I am super small that you don’t carry a size 2 in most of your items. How do the sizes run and what are the sizes equivalent to?

I actually get this question often.  (Making mental note to add it to the site.)  I honestly need to do a better job when ordering. *slaps wrist.  We carry sizes 2-10 (with sizes 12-16 being added on May 1st.), however, size 2 is limited and seems to get snatched up first.  Size 4 is equivalent to a Small and can fit most size 2 and petite women. I have converted most pieces from UK size to US, so the cut is a tad smaller to begin with.  I appreciate this question and promise to do better.

Where are you based out of?

MOXY Lounge is an online destination, open 24-7 and accessible worldwide.  I am a proud Washington, DC native and will always call DC my home!  Washington, DC is also slated to become the future home of MOXY Lounge.

How can we all stay connected with you and the website?
