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 lifestyle boutique offers a merchandise assortment consisting of apparel, unique vintage finds, housewares and handmade items . Our focus is on building long lasting customer relationships by hosting in-store events, creating captivating visuals and offering an inviting retail space.
Owner Alexis Farrar 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, 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.
