Handmade, Comfy Couture That's Good to the Earth.

Greetings! Welcome to my lil Wild West Boutique! I've got lots more to show you on my boutique's website, I first got started selling my wares on the Jam lot scene in the midwest. I eventually migrated to Humboldt County, CA to study at Humboldt State University and never left. I opened my brick and mortar store on the Arcata Plaza in 2008 and have been going strong ever since. My clothes make women feel beautiful. They last a long time, and can take you through all walks of life. I am a mama who loves to travel, hike, do yoga, ride my motorcycle, snowboard, dance, and embrace life to the fullest all while being comfortable and lookin good. My designs also celebrate history, especially the wild west, a theme that still holds a lot of energy here in these Humboldt hills as wells as where I grew up in South Dakota. As a result, my collections hold timeless silhouettes you can wear lots of different ways to lots of different occasions. Weather you're frolicking or taking care of business, I've got you.
