A Stylish Fairytale

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, a stylish maiden named Abby had a dream bigger than Rapunzel’s braided ponytail … to share her gift of fashion with her community.  

And less than 2 months ago she saw her dream become a reality when she opened Ella Mae’s Boutique 🙂  Abby had jump-started her business in her home a few months prior, but opening a store front was another dream realized.

She was kind enough to let me drop by just days before her grand opening to check out her beautiful new shop.  {The sign next to me in the picture above now hangs outside the storefront.}

The $40 I spent on her destructed jeans was a splurge and they are quite possibly my favorite jeans e.v.e.r.  {pictured below and here

In the event we are not in running clothes, we are probably wearing Ella Mae’s!  {Um, I may have a small obsession with the gray and coral Aztec tunic!}

  1. I’m compiling a playlist of every “getting dressed up/transformation” soundtrack song to bring with me when I take Annette shopping at Ella Mae’s for her birthday. (Think “Pretty Woman” but without the prostitution.) 🙂
