Swank concentrates on 3 important things; Closet, Home and Life.
Here's their story:

     Once upon a time in a land far, far away called Tri-Cities a nice girl named Jody was busy being a police officer. Her love of civil service was rivaled only by her love of fashion. Since the police "Outfits" were so drab she was never without her Chanel sunglasses. Jody found that her friends appreciated her fashion sense so much that she was recruited to shop for and style them.
     This began a fun side job of selling designer clothing at home parties where she met another nice girl named DeLori. DeLori was busy being a soccer mom but her love of fashion and all things fabulous found her making gorgeous belt buckles which were known & coveted through all the land.

     Together, Jody and DeLori dreamed of a place where all things fabulous could be found in one place. They dreamed of a place where girls could find the perfect things to make their own Closet, Home, & Life fabulous.
     Soon, Swank Boutique Fabulous Closet * Home * Life was born. News spread fast through all the land and soon all the girls had their own fabulous closets, homes, & lives. And they all lived fabulously ever after.
