Who are your favorite fashion lines and/or designers?

For high fashion, I love the tailoring from Alexander McQueen, adore the prints and colors from Alice + Olivia, and I can live in anything from T by Alexander Wang.

Where do you turn for style inspiration?

I find inspiration from everyday life such as street fashion or in the colors from nature.  For on-trend styles, I turn to digital inspirations such as Who What Wear, The Coveteur,, Pinterest, and various fashion bloggers.


How do you spend your Saturdays?

When I'm not working, I usually spend my Saturdays grabbing coffee and breakfast with my husband, or out with my girlfriends dining or shopping and catching up on life.

What adds pep to your step?

A good cup of joe, it can make or break my day.


What is your favorite aspect of owning your own boutique?

Getting to know my customers on a personal relationship level. It’s like having your best friends come over and I get to help them pick out outfits!

What is your favorite hangout in the Twin Cities?

You can usually find me out in the Twin Cities dining scene. I love trying new restaurants and frequenting my go-to favorite restaurants around town.
