I AM MORE SCARDALE is a unique women's boutique featuring the hottest new trends in fashion, jewelry and accessories. These trendy items enable our clientele to stay ahead of the fashion curve! However, I Am More is MORE than your run of the mill retail shop. The “AM” stands for our initials (Abbey and Marcy), and the “MORE” is for any mantra our customers want to feel about themselves, including “confident, strong, fierce, sexy and loved.” Our mission is to empower women to make them feel confident, support up and coming and established women-owned businesses and designers, and to give back to local and women’s philanthropic organizations.
I AM MORE SCARSDALE, in line with its mission, holds informational and inspirational-themed events focusing on women’s wellness, including talks promoting positive body image, nutrition, meditation and mindfulness, and health related topics, including breast cancer (knowing the risks and importance of early detection and treatment). Please visit our events page for information on upcoming events.
I AM MORE SCARSDALE was awarded the 2019 Best of Westchester category for best women’s empowerment shopping, and Abbey and Marcy were recognized by the Westchester County Business Journal as powerful women leaders in 2018 and 2019.

Safe Horizon is the largest victim services non-profit organization in the United States, whose mission is to provide support, prevent violence and promote justice for victims of crime and abuse, their families and communities.
