The Story Behind the Business
A Mission-Motivated Business
My mission is real—one that I am extremely passionate about—and it guides every business decision I make:
"Simply Audrey is dedicated to empowering women to have confidence in their wardrobe and personal style by influencing the creation of a luxurious and effortless wardrobe at a more affordable price."
Simply put, I want women to feel beautiful, sexy and fearless in what they are wearing--no matter their size, weight or budget. Trust me, I have had my share of body image issues. I have experienced the highs—when I felt amazing and ready to rock the world. But I have also experienced the lows—when I stood in my closet, feeling sick at the thought of having to squeeze into a pair of pants. Or the times I have walked into a luxury designer store where the employee decided I wasn't worth their time. I want to put an end to women feeling too self-conscious to shop. Designer clothing and fabulous customer service shouldn't just be for the rich and skinny.
These real-life experiences, combined with the realization that I am raising two daughters of my own, Annalee and Audrey, have inspired me to create a high-end luxury boutique where the positive customer experience outweighs the purchase she may or may not make. It's my goal to have every single customer Simply Audrey interacts with to feel special--whether that's through a positive interaction or through the purchasing of a beloved item.
By personally hand-picking every single piece that goes into my store, I am taking away the stress or worry that an item--specifically a pre-loved or vintage item--isn't as described online. Everything is in new, pristine or excellent condition, dry cleaned and ready-to-wear. Additionally, all pieces--new and pre-loved--are marked down 40-80% off the designer's sell price, making high-end luxury more accessible. Think of it as one big sample sale with some cool vintage pieces thrown in the mix!
This method may not make me the most successful luxury boutique owner in the world, but it will certainly make me feel fulfilled at the end of the day. If I have contributed to even just one woman feeling better about herself, then I consider Simply Audrey a great success.
