When Vanessa Santana opened Halo B in downtown Modesto, she wanted to create something that was more than a clothing boutique.

“Not only are we a store but a place to create a welcoming atmosphere and committed to enhance every woman’s radiant light and feel their best when styling their pieces,” Santana said.

Now, two years after opening Halo B has found their niche with a clientele looking to don classic style.

“I feel like my store’s specialty provides trendy and classic styles that give women a sense of empowerment and a way for women to feel good about themselves,” Santana said.

Santana has curated a style in Halo B that can meet a wide variety of fashion needs, from modern cuts and designs to the current fashion rage of cottage core. Guests can find sweaters, dresses, blouses, T-shirts, jeans, coats, hats, leggings, pants, rompers, jumpsuits, accessories and more. The store has small, medium and large sizes. Most clothing is between $25 to $90 with a few items priced higher.

As the temperatures have been dropping, Halo B has been bringing in more warm and cozy fashion finds.

“There is something special about warm and cozy style because not everything gives you that feeling and it’s very important for women to wear clothes that gives them a sense of confidence and comfort that makes them feel on top of the world,” Santana said. “We’re moms, hands-on people, a helping sister, handling work, going to school and women sometimes need a sense of warm and cozy to feel relaxed and grateful. It reminds me of wearing a throw in front of a fire on a crispy chilly day with a cup of coffee at the end of every day and feel that sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.”

And since a lot of people are staying close to home of late and preferring a wardrobe of comfort, Santana is finding clothing for Halo B to meet that need.

“Most recently, we have seen styles evolve and change,” Santana said. “Cozy loungewear and athleisure has now become part of our daily lives because it is so easy to dress up warm and cozy items whether that’s with boots, blazers, coats, jewelry, etc. It gives you the feeling of being relaxed and I feel like with fashion as long as you’re comfortable you are able to do anything and will put you in a good state of mind.”
