LOOSE THREADS BOUTIQUE
When jewelry designer Laura Jasorka moved back to the Lehigh Valley from sunny California a few years ago, her intention was not to open women’s clothing boutique. However, on the suggestion of a friend and soon to be business partner, that is exactly what she did, bringing her unique designer’s eye and California cutting-edge styles with her. Now, running Loose Threads solo, she has turned this urban, antiqued habitat into a routine stop for contemporary college girls, their modern-day moms, and followers of all ages who seek untraditional, updated, one-of-a kind designs.
Laura determinedly treks many miles at the New York Trade Shows in search of unique vendors, mainly from the U.S. and Australian markets. Selections are based on artistic design, construction, wearability, fabrics, and production location, and she knows her what her customers like. Some favorite designers include Our Prince of Peace, Gentle Fawn, Line & Dot, MINKPINK, and many more known names,
Shoes and Accessories add another artistic dimension to the boutique. Here you will find shoes that are not duplicated around the valley. They are mainly shipped from South America and Portugal. A huge shout out for the modern-day jellie by Melissa Shoes, or try Kling Shoes for comfort, cuteness, and, oh yeah, did I mention-they’re vegan?!
The jewelry displays will captivate all audiences with delightful designs-ninety percent of which are made by local artists, (sometimes college students), and Laura herself. Do try the Scotch nail polish, all natural, safe ,and nontoxic, created by the mom who invented the same for her kids, “Hopscotch Kids” polish. Moms liked it so much they asked for grown-up shades!
In tune with the rage for vintage everything, Laura keeps a fine assortment, furnished by a vintage dealer. Denim cut-offs by Lee, Levi, Calvin Klein, and many other denim favorites are the rage-so more mature gals-dig through your closets!
There’s no doubt that Loose Threads Boutique supports this artistic South Bethlehem neighborhood and brings its customers the essential styles that they seek, from casual to formal wear, with an ever friendly free-spirit vibe.
