Shoe boutique comes to Hyde Park Village; Cache salon relocates

HYDE PARK — The law profession's loss could be Tampa shoe fashionistas' gain.

Lawyer Victoria Bowa said turning 30 this week prompted her to do some soul-searching, leading to Navy, a women's shoe, jewelry and handbag boutique in Hyde Park Village. Bowa expects to open Aug. 9 in the horseshoe corridor behind the Wine Exchange.

Bowa, who is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, decided to pursue a fashion career three years after graduating from Stetson University College of Law.

"Sandals to stilettos ... we'll have a range of shoe styles from $50 to $500," she said, noting the store's name implies "preppy to sophisticated."

Look for trendy brands such as L.K. Bennett, ("Princess Kate's faves"), up-and-coming designer Loeffler Randall and Joie, as well as accessories by Cristina V, and Loren Hope.

"Tampa is very fashion conscious, but really didn't have a shoe boutique like this," Bowa said. "This is much more intimate and fun than shopping at the mall."

Navy, 1607 W Snow Circle, will be open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Visit navyhydepark.com or call (813) 336-2010.

A new place for your pooch to be pampered

Full-service dog grooming starts at $45 at the Dashing Pooch, opened July 11 on S West Shore Boulevard near El Prado Boulevard.

"Upscale, but affordable," said owner Lois Waite, noting that pampering spa treatments — a fuzzy facial or "pawdicure" — cost $10 or less.

Waite's rescued pets, Pitch, a Lakeland terrier, and Bean, a Shih Tzu mix, come to work with her and can vouch for the services offered.

Waite quit corporate health plan management this summer "for all things dog ... my true passion."

Four self-service dog bathing booths are available, and doggy day care is provided from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The retail boutique stocks nontoxic, organic and healthy pet products.

The Dashing Pooch, 3637 S West Shore Blvd., is open Monday through Saturday. Visit dashing pooch.com or call (813) 832-3236.

Cache Salon Studio relocates to Kennedy

Salon services for women and men continue as before, said Ivan Santos, who owns the salon with his sister, Mildred Santos. The previous location on Howard Avenue was sold, slated to become an apartment and retail complex.

"We do very trendy cuts and styles for the ladies," Ivan said, as well as highlights, color, extensions, waxing and eyelash tints.

For men there are barber cuts, straight razor edging and shaves, finished with a hot towel.

Both men and women can enjoy manicures and pedicures, Ivan said.

Walk-in clients and special appointments are welcome.

Cache Salon Studio, 3216 W Kennedy Blvd., is open 11 a.m. "to whenever" Tuesday through Saturday. Call (813) 251-2695.
