The way the back flows when you’re walking makes you look so dreamy, so these would definitely be date night pants.

It’s such a timeless, and versatile little black dress, I would wear it to work and hopefully inspire other customers to want to explore our selection more.

3.    What made you decide to go into fashion?

I always loved playing dress- up and dressing up my Barbies, not a hair out of place. When I got older, I was introduced to classic movies and was always fascinated by how character’s development and journey was reflected in their wardrobe choice. Costumes and fashion have always made a big difference in movies, it withstands the test of time. To make a long story short, I always loved fashion and dressing up and I’m so glad I can make a career out of it.

7.    What are your three favorite pieces from My Home-Fashion Boutique and where would you wear them?   

My first piece is a pale pink pleated cold should blouse from Greylin. I love the color, the color is the first thing I always consider when choosing a piece. This color is a classic, feminine and currently trending. I would wear it during the day for a daytime event or outing accompanied with a slim pencil skirt or trousers.  The second piece is a white ruffle trim off-shoulder cotton blouse. This blouse has a flattering fit and the ruffles are not overpowering. With the right accessories, it can be worn day or night. The last piece are the spring step suede taupe ankle booties. This booties are known to be comfortable and versatile and in the fashion world, that is not possible. I would wear these in the day time or if you are planning to travel to Europe and walk everywhere.

I want people to know that it is a warm and inviting boutique with outstanding and memorable customer service. We treat and greet guests like friends we have not seen in ages, our motto really is “welcome to my home”.

9.    If you can pick any city to shop around in the world, what city would it be and why?

Just one?  I would be pick Rome, Italy. I love Italy with its abundance of rich and captivating history, meticulous craftsmanship and culture. After my delightful shopping trip, I would definitely take a car and drive to my rented quaint Tuscan villa and sit and enjoy a classic and smooth wine from Montepulciano.

10.    What's something most people don't know about you?

Something people don’t know about me is that I am a hardcore gamer girl. Just give me a good video/computer game with a great plot, exciting characters and phenomenal graphics and I’ll be playing that all day.
