Some women just have it. A special fashion savvy and style that is undeniable. Mother and daughter business partners, Bea and Breanna Tumminello, owners of Hissy Fit Boutique, definitely have it. They provide a one-of-a-kind shopping experience that will keep you coming back time and time again. The clothes and accessories are gorgeous! New things arrive each and every day that are fun and flirty, feminine and perfect for any occasion. And Bea just opened their brand new 2,200 square foot location, 2 doors down from the original store on Lamey Bridge Road, D’Iberville.
In the beginning, Bea sold her mother’s hand made jewelry at horse shows. She created a little company called “Rhinestone Mustang” that started out with necklaces, earrings, and bracelets and grew to include purses and belts. She sold her goods through the National Barrel Racing Circuit, traveling all over the country. After a few years she chose to work from home and continued to sell her accessories online. Bea enjoyed much success but wanted to branch out and own her own store specializing in women’s fashions.
It was very important to her to set up shop in her hometown. She grew up on the Coast, was well known, and wanted to build a fashion and accessories business here. “Hissy Fit Boutique” opened in July of last year and in a few short months it was clear the store was too small to keep up with the demand. Bea made arrangements to take a much larger space as soon as it was available. the new store opened just weeks ago and it is a dream come true for Bea and her daughter.
Beautiful, massive display windows proudly show off the latest arrivals at Hissy Fit. The decor is all about the feminine mystique. Pastel shades of coral and blue provide a relaxing atmosphere and the dressing rooms are big and comfortable. A cozy seating area complete with a cheetah chaise begs for some girl talk with the friendly staff while you try on all the wonderful clothes and accessories. Bea’s husband, John Harper, designed the store from top to bottom. Shopping at Hissy Fit is an experience that you will thoroughly enjoy. “We have a blast in here! We have unique apparel and exciting accessories that you will not find anywhere else,” Bea said.
The stock is constantly changing and new things arrive each day. Everything is fresh and fun, right on target for today’s woman. Whatever the occasion, a lazy day at the beach or a glamorous night on the town, you will find what you are looking for here. Bea and Breanna will dress you from your head to your toes. Hissy Fit offers beautiful fashions for all women. This is the only boutique on the Coast that carries plus sizes! The sales staff caters to all women of all ages and they encourage ladies to be a little daring and step out of their comfort zone…to have fun with fashion! “I am 51 years old and I love beautiful, sexy, shabby chic clothes. They make me feel young and I still like to turn a few heads…why not? Hissy Fit has a wide array of wonderful clothes and accessories suitable for every woman,” Bea said.
The accessories at Hissy Fit always make a statement. Big, showy “Buddha” handbags, “Steve Madden” and “Safari Girl” shoes and flip flops, “Sweet Romance,” “Ollipop” and “String Theory” jewelry are all here. The special designer collection pieces are always available but if you find something you want, don’t hesitate or it will probably be gone when you come in at a later date! Bea never orders the same thing twice. Every time you shop at Hissy Fit you will find new and different merchandise. The store is always filled with exciting treasures and one-of-a-kind additions to your wardrobe.
Bea says, “It’s all about the bling” this season. The trends include high waisted shorts, floral and nautical prints, and lots of fringe. A big floppy hat is a must as well as flip flops with plenty of sparkle and rhinestones. “Color, color, color is the thing for this summer. Coral and mint green are very hot as well as fuschia,” she said. Jewelry trends are a mixed bag…it’s up to your personal taste. Big, bold and chunky styles are always favorites but sweet, demure and delicate is also a perfect choice. Hissy Fit has two huge jewelry cases that show off their exciting collections. Whatever is your heart’s desire, you will certainly find it here. “Everything we have is so beautifully made and so unusual. My clients love it all,” Bea said.
Each weekend you will find items on special sale. They range from discounted pricing to BOGO. Look for ads on Instagram and Facebook. Hissy Fit offers a layaway plan for 20% down. Items on layaway must be paid for in full in 30 days. “There is nothing better than that feeling of confidence and pride when you are dressed well and look great. Come see us! We always have a great time and I promise you will love our apparel and accessories,” Bea said.
