About us

The love of fashion came at a very young age for owner, Karissa. Growing up, a favorite pastime was spending countless hours searching and shopping for the “perfect outfit” with her mom. During her middle and high school years, she would spend time every night planning, coordinating and trying on outfits to wear the next day. So much time and effort went into her choice of clothing, shoes and accessories, and this daily ritual happened without fail!

While attending college to pursue her goal of becoming a physical therapist, she happened to be in the right place at the right time and was offered a part time job at a local boutique, which she gladly accepted, simply thinking it was a way to earn some extra money to buy more clothes! She never realized that her first, part-time job would spark an even greater dream and change the course she had set for herself.

In a very short time, Karissa realized that she had chosen the wrong career choice and felt she could never be happy continuing down that path which she had planned and prepared for so long. She wasn’t sure how but she knew that she wanted to pursue a career that would incorporate her love of fashion and the dream of owning and operating her own boutique was born! With the support of family and friends, Karissa’s dream became a reality in August 2013 with the launch of the Southern Sensation Boutique storefront in Valdosta, Georgia.

Since that very first day, she has never looked back and wakes up every morning thankful and knowing just how truly blessed she is to be living out her dream. Her greatest desire is to offer her customers quality, trendy boutique fashions at affordable prices. She, along with her staff, has a passion for extending exceptional customer service with just a little bit of charm that all southern girls are famous for.

Southern Sensation Boutique has flourished since opening and now Karissa is ready to take the next step by launching the SSB website, where customers can shop for the latest boutique fashions in the comfort of their own home and at times that are convenient to their schedule.

To all SSB past, present and future customers, “THANK YOU” for taking this amazing journey with us. Our hope is that each and every one of you will pursue your dreams to the fullest and enjoy the journey along the way, all while being fashionably dressed, of course!

Be Blessed!
