You know when you are looking in your closet for something that isn’t there? SOCA has it.
This fabulous, spacious shop in Green Hills has all of the pieces you need to update your wardrobe each season, but I wouldn’t call them trendy. Rather, I would say that SOCA has a great selection of clothes that are current–you are going to want to keep these clothes in your closet for a while. When you walk in, in addition to the great selection of tops, you will see tons of great jewelry and a wall of denim. All of the sales associates are trained specifically to know all about their denim lines and help you find the perfect fit. Can I get an amen on that ladies?!
SOCA is based in Birmingham, AL where they have a store downtown. In 2011 they expanded and opened two additional locations, one of those in Nashville. They are a contemporary women’s clothing store that offers a unique shopping experience. They really strive to offer a well curated offering of styles. I will warn you that you are going to want everything in this store. They even offer Spanx and other under garment items that help you look your best in your clothes.
The ladies at SOCA were nice enough to answer a few questions for us and give us some insight into how they operate:
SFTH: I can see from your website that you are based in Birmingham, AL. What made you pick Nashville as a location as well?
SOCA: We’re lovers of music and the south, so naturally Nashville seemed to be the perfect next step for us.
SFTH: What do you want shoppers to know about your Green Hills store?
SOCA: At Soca, our goal is to provide an exclusive shopping experience. We strive to cultivate a positive company culture that begins with training, focused on genuinely tailoring each shopping experience to our customer. Investing in education and supporting each employee results in a highly skilled, dynamic team full of thoughtful and fashionable Stylists. Each Soca Stylist understands the individual aesthetic and needs of their customer in order to help guide them to the perfect piece. All of our staff goes through an intensive denim training process. Most women compare denim shopping to bathing suit shopping. Fear, dread, procrastination – all words that come to mind when trying to find “the perfect pair”. We wanted to change that, so every Stylist goes through a training process to learn about each pair of denim we carry. They learn about brands, styles, shapes, etc. Every woman is different and every pair of jeans is different. We do the research for you in order to quickly narrow down your options and pinpoint exactly what will work for your body. I could ask you 5 questions right now and know what 2 pair of jeans to pull for you! We make it that easy.
SFTH: Do you buy only certain designers/brands or do you buy more based on trends or a certain look or something different altogether?
SOCA: We pride ourselves on striking a nice balance. Each item is hand-picked creating a harmonious blend of current trends and classic staples to help you form a well-curated collection that fits your personal style.
SFTH: What has been your favorite part of having a store in Nashville?
SOCA: We love our customers! We’ve always enjoyed meeting people and building new relationships. Since we’re major foodies, the amazing selection of new restaurants is high on our list of things we love about this city as well!
SFTH: The 615: Would you rather have 6 trendy garments, 1 classic little black dress, or 5 vintage garments?
SOCA: One classic black dress – or in our case – a stellar pair of denim! Finding that perfect pair can take you from season to season and allows you to mix in the trendy pieces!
