Bohemian Bias seeks to celebrate and empower females through the art of fashion and creative self-expression. We strive to create an unrivaled shopping experience by providing a carefully curated selection of apparel, shoes and accessories. 

Our Story

Inspired by music, art and the laid back vibes of the West Coast, Bohemian Bias was founded in Newport, RI during the winter of 2017. Our women's wear boutique offers a merchandise assortment consisting of statement pieces from "contemporary" brands not typically found in local shops. Our focus is on building long lasting customer relationships by hosting in-store events, creating captivating visuals and offering an inviting retail space for you and your girl tribe.

We aim to inspire and be inspired by the early adapters of fashion, the risk takers and the style obsessed. We believe that life should be lived in love, happiness and style; and that there are no restraints when it comes to expressing yourself through fashion. 

The Bohemian Bias babe is inspired by nature, travel, unconventional fashion and all things vintage. She's a little glam, a little rock n' roll, and a whole lotta peace and love. 


Owner Alexis Souza (@lexilouwh0) is an Aquidneck Island native with a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management. She earned her degree from the Art Institute of California-San Diego where she lived for six years. It is there she found a love for the laid back California lifestyle and the fashion that so beautifully compliments it. Being the true New Englander that she is, Alexis moved back to the east coast in pursuit of season change. Bohemian Bias birthed out of a desire to marry the sophisticated style of the east with the eccentricity of the west, two influences that have molded a sense of her own. She's a vinyl loving, festival going, tea drinking, book reading, pizza eating, thrift store frequenting yogi, and you can find that all of these heavily influence the store and it's aesthetic.
