Sometimes it really is awful having to shop at big box stores. Target is becoming super trendy and, while still budget friendly, not necessarily the looks I'm going for. H&M is a pain to access, and I know I can't just get in and get out. And who in the world has time to peruse the infamous hit or miss TJMaxx? What's a desperate mama to do?
I was actually vocalizing these thoughts to a friend while exercising at my Fit4Mom class at Transformama (way back before quarantine, y'all. When we all socialized and vented to each other about the lack of appropriate clothing choices), when this super attractive and sweet mom interrupted my complaining with "Hey! Did you know I own an online boutique? I can totally help you out!"
Enter Denea : owner of Queen Styles Boutique. She told us, "Mamas are some of the busiest people that I know. That is why, as an online boutique store owner, I like having versatile clothing pieces that are effortlessly cute and make getting dressed a breeze in the mornings!"
We couldn't agree more! And it's great to head to Queen Styles Boutique's website, because items are shown differently. You'll see a shirt paired with pants in one picture and then again with a skirt & tennis shoes. You'll see the same shirt plain and then dressed up with an accessory. It's like having a personal stylist without the crazy fees.

As far as I'm concerned, graphic tees are a staple in my wardrobe. When I opened Queen Styles Boutique, I knew I had to have a couple of them on the website. This “Be Kind Tee” is the newest graphic tee to hit the shop.
.... And Voila! My life was changed. For real though. I'm not really exaggerating. Because, you know what those 3 stores I first listed don't have? PERSONALIZATION. Do you know what Queen Styles Boutique has over them? Yep, you guessed it -- PERSONALIZATION. And it was so easy to order. Denea directed me to her Instagram page and told me to just comment or message her on the pieces I was interested in. I immediately chose a solid color skirt with an ELASTIC waistband and WASHABLE material (don't you hate it when you get home and later discover something is dry clean only?!). I was sent the invoice via email. I paid the invoice via Venmo. AND instead of getting an impersonal package in the mail, I received Denea herself delivering it to my house -- compete with cute tag, a hand written thank you note, and a $5 Chik Fil A gift card as a first-time buyer bonus. Even without the gift card to get some Lord's chicken for free, I would've still been duly impressed. Even though I had purchased the skirt, the way Denea treated me made me feel like I was receiving a present. I felt seen and loved. And really, isn't that what all moms need?
So next time you need to update your wardrobe, don't jump into the car. Instead, just grab your phone or laptop and support your locally owned boutiques first! You'll be so glad you did.
