BETH LEVY’S passion has always been fashion. Her parents owned a network of clothing stores and Levy recalls being completely “addicted” to pulling clothes off hangers and attempting to try on anything and everything at the tender age of 3. She spent her childhood working in the business learning about people, personalities, buying, and fashion. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 and realizing that life is too short not to follow your dreams, Levy opened Bolt Addiction. With the mission of sharing designer looks for less, Levy hopes she helps her clientele look and feel fabulous while also leaving them “addicted” to being savvy and stylish. This busy mom of two steps away from hand-picking pieces for Bolt Addiction to share her Shore and City favorites with Sheridan Road.
