Fit for a Queen

Some of my favorite styles from the online boutique!

One of my favorite places to shop in my hometown is a fabulous boutique called Southern Jewlz!  Every time I go in there I am greeted with a fun loving atmosphere, decked out with lots of pink, sparkle (the floors are even glittered!), and the cutest clothes and jewlz around.  SJ is the perfect place to get all dolled up for any occasion, big or small.

Today and tomorrow they are having a Re Grand Opening at their new location!  It is going to be an amazing time, with free makeovers, Miranda Lambert wine tastings, a photo booth, and 15% off your purchase when you check in on Facebook!  I can't wait to stop by there tomorrow and join in on the fun.  If you aren't in the area check out their online store here!

    Randa Yezak is the owner of SJ and such and inspiring young woman.  She has built this boutique from the ground up and has done a fantastic job. She is such an inspiration to all girls out there to follow their dreams.  Even if it seems difficult and tough, she has shown us that it is possible!  Not only has she created a successful business, she's made sure to stay true to yourself and let her beautiful, fun personality shine through.

Randa was sweet enough to answer a few questions about owning her own business and fashion!  I hope y'all enjoy and check out her fabulous boutiques here.

1. What would you say to other girls wanting to open up a boutique or their own business?

"Start off small and take slow gradual growing steps.  This way you learn every bit of the way and appreciate the journey.  Understand it is going to take a lot of time, hard work, energy, dedication and enthusiasm to make it happen.  Stay true to yourself, your supporters and never become complacent."

2. What's your favorite spring/summer trend?

"This Spring/Summer we are seeing lots of bright colors - specifically yellow!  And my favorite hot Spring/Summer print is the tribal/native print!"

3. What's your go to fashion piece?

"My go-to fashion piece is a long beaded turquoise necklace.  It literally matches almost everything in my closet and instantly adds some color and fun to my outfit!"

4. Where do you get inspiration for the clothing pieces you buy for SJ?

"I travel to fashion markets across the country 5-6 times a year.  Attending this many markets and doing a lot of up and coming fashion trend research allows me to stay in-the-know and provide it to my clients.  I also strive to get to know a lot of my customers and their style, so this helps me to know what I can incorporate into the SJ collection!"
