Once you step through the doors at Bixby’s Twisted Soul Sisters, you’ll be enamored — and you’ll vow to come back often to browse the clothes, shoes, boots, jewelry, home décor, wine coolers, graphic tees, caps and hats, game-day wear, charms, and more.

The shop launched nine years ago after owner Kelly Corey and a friend, Marti Coleman, decided to turn an in-joke about their passion for fashion into a reality that women all around Green Country can now enjoy. Corey has years of experience in design and retail. She and Coleman would go various places — from marketing/trade shows to vintage shops and estate sales — looking for creative items to buy.

“We’d come back with so many things for ourselves clothing-wise and accessory-wise, we would joke about opening a store,” says Corey. “We started doing trunk shows at people’s homes, and we did the Women’s Expo and things like that, and it just grew, grew, grew.”

Twisted Soul Sisters carries several brands of clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, and other accessories that fashionistas may recognize — including Dear John, Another Love, Lenny & Eva, Madeline Girl, Entro, Umgee, Bobbi Chicago, Free People and more. And there’s something for just about any woman. (Photo: Sarah Eliza Roberts)

The storefront version of Twisted Soul Sisters has been in its current location in Bixby for five years. It’s the sort of shop that invites a relaxed time of browsing with a girlfriend. Twisted Soul Sisters carries several brands of clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, and other accessories that fashionistas may recognize — including Dear John, Another Love, Lenny & Eva, Madeline Girl, Entro, Umgee, Bobbi Chicago, Free People and more. And there’s something for just about any woman.

“I like to make sure that all generations can come in,” says Corey. “Grandmother, mother, and daughter can all come to shop, and they all can find something.” Much of what the shop carries are limited run items, so you are assured of finding unique clothing.

Among the most popular lines they carry is Dear John, a brand of denim jeans, shorts, and other comfortable, easy fitting clothing items that is a favorite among many women in the know. Twisted Soul Sisters is the biggest retailer of Dear John in the region and has won awards from the company for their success in representing the brand.

“Our No. 1 thing in the whole store and what we sell the most of in-store and online is Dear John denim, which fits amazingly well,” says Corey. “We’ve carried it for eight years. We have people drive even from out of state to try on and buy the Dear John from us.”

If you want help pulling together an outfit, Corey and her team can help. They’ll assist you in finding clothing that looks great on you. “I like when a woman feels good about what she has on, and she goes out, and she’s confident,” says Corey. “From our accessories to our shoes, we can give her a whole look. I love women to feel empowered. If you don’t look good, we don’t look good. That’s our philosophy. We do tell you the truth in the dressing room. And if the outfit’s not right, I’ve got a suggestion of something else that might be better. We’re really good about that.”

Another thing Twisted Soul Sisters is well-known for is their custom jewelry and their repurposing of old jewelry for new generations. Customers can browse through the selection of beads, chains, charms, and other jewelry items. Choose what you like, and Corey and her team will help you design your piece, which they’ll put together for you.  

Or, you can bring in the old jewelry items that you want to be repurposed. It’s how Twisted Soul Sisters gained its creative jewelry reputation, and it’s something Corey is honored to do for customers.

“We had a lady come in who knew that we did stuff with antique jewelry,” Corey explains. “She said, ‘I have a whole box full of my grandmother’s [stuff]. If I brought it in, could you do a couple of necklaces?’ We did it. She loved it. And then she kept bringing the box back because she had a cousin who wanted a piece of something from grandma, and then a granddaughter. I think we made probably six or seven different things out of that box of old jewelry. That’s probably our thing that we’re most known for.”

In addition to clothing and jewelry, there are multiple gift items and home décor to choose from, including brands like Mud Pie, Ever Ellis and Corkcicle. The store will wrap the gift for you as well.

There are multiple ways for customers to save. Join the mailing list for exclusive offers and discounts. On Thursdays — unless Corey is out of town at market — the store is open until 8 p.m. “We have a ladies’ night. We usually have a discount, and we have wine, cheese, and crackers,” she says.

On July 13, the store will celebrate nine years in business. There will be swag bag giveaways for the first 30 people, drawings and giveaways throughout the day, discounts, music, and food. “It’ll be a big to-do,” Corey says.

All in all, Twisted Soul Sisters wants each client to enjoy the sisterhood feel of the store and have a fun, fulfilling shopping experience. “My most important thing for our customers is not what they take out in their bag but their experience,” she says. “Word-of-mouth has been good to us over the last few years.”
