Spirit & Style

Some people just have an innate ability to look at different items of clothing and just know how to piece them together to create an outfit that looks effortlessly chic. Kady Pometta is one such person.

Fashion has long been a part of Pometta’s life in one form or another. When the wife and mother of two young boys found herself missing her days in retail, she decided it was time to follow an idea that had been forming her head and open her own store.

She started selling active wear out of her home, and soon expanded to online with a larger inventory. As her sales grew she set up inside a salon, before eventually opening her own storefront - 1403 Pom - which takes its name from the street address of where she first started her business and a nickname.

1403 Pom caters to a woman with a classic and chic Bohemian style.

“I want to put out effortless, affordable styles that you can recreate at home to help you look and feel your best,” Pometta said. “One thing that I have learned over the years is that when I look and feel my best I’m better suited to take care of the ones I love.”

The shop’s selections range from comfortable and flattering jeans and sweaters to the ubiquitous Little Black Dress. The shop also carries accessories and home decor items like devine smelling candles.

“I try and have something for every shopper,” Pometta said.

For the holidays, Pometta has added some items that bring a dash of spirit to the season without going overboard.

“My favorite thing about holiday fashion is that it helps to put you in the holiday spirit,” Pometta said. “When you dress in something festive you feel excited for the season to come. Dressing up in your favorite holiday inspired pieces can help instantly bring joy and help lift your spirits. It helps bring the holiday season to life.”

1403 Pom is located at 1020 Fresno St., in Newman. The shop is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday; and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. For more information call (209) 895-0501 or visit online at or on Instagram @1403pom.
