Well, it began with my Mama.
After having three boys, she finally gave birth to a girl. And because I was her one and only daughter, she dressed me to a T. She would sew my Easter dresses, paint my fingernails, put me in bonnets and hats that matched my outfits. As I grew older, she took me on mom/daughter shopping dates. When we would get home at night after a shopping date, I would put on a modeling show for my dad, showing him all my new outfits. I grew to love the creativity involved when putting pieces of clothing together and watching a cute outfit emerge.
I'm now 33 years old, and after a wonderful 12-year career in education, I became restless. I needed a change. And well… Eleven Oaks Boutique sort of sprang to life. In the small town where I grew up, my parents home was nestled in the middle of their pine tree farm. In the clearing where they built their home, they left eleven magnificent oak trees that surrounded our house. The trees provided shade, beauty, and strong limbs that supported our tree swings and tree houses. For me, those oak trees are a symbol of life. They represent strong roots, shelter and protection, and they inspire me to reach for my dreams, just as their long and lovely limbs reach for the sun.
It is my hope that my customers will enjoy the amazing pieces I offer here at Eleven Oaks Boutique and will be inspired to nurture their own creativity. We try to give some outfit ideas in each item description, but naturally, we all have different styles and that's what makes fashion so fun! We would LOVE to see some of our customers' outfit ideas with pieces they've purchased! Please email us any pictures, suggestions, comments, and feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
