“Uplifting women & the community”
State of Grace was designed to be a little different than your “typical” clothing store as a place founded on the belief that true success is found in empowering each other and giving back to the community. Additionally, all of our models are women that shopped with us in the past and are just as passionate about our brand’s mission. State of Grace Boutique is a huge supporter of women supporting women and their community.
