From a seed that was planted many years ago, intertwined with our love of helping others, sharing our graces and living a life full of meaningful purpose, even after tremendous loss, Georgia Kate Boutique was born…and she has a story to tell.
Our goal is to give you a beautiful, hassle free & memorable "shopping with purpose" experience. Dressing shouldn’t be stressful. We are all about keeping things simple, including clothes shopping. Georgia Kate offers modern classics that are feminine, pretty, practical for real life and always in style. Each of our pieces was chosen to be paired with clothing you already own. And if not, we invite you to shop our carefully curated collections. We understand that clothing is personal and we believe that your style should be an expression of your personality, lifestyle and overall style preference.
For those of you who only know the real estate side of me, or not at all, I will share with you what has been in my heart for "hundreds of years,” or, as our kids know it, "since dinosaurs roamed the earth.” It’s all about life, healing, empowering (all) women, having a thankful and giving heart, recognizing my “unsung women heroes” who helped me along the way, spreading awareness on pregnancy and infant loss; and finally, chasing, understanding and finding the “more” that my heart, soul, mind & business life has been seeking. And now, I am beyond excited and grateful for the chance to do “more." Being able to share my love and appreciation of clothing styles (deeply influenced by my Southern upbringing), paying it forward to deserving “unsung women heroes" out there, and helping to spread awareness on pregnancy and infant loss so that it stops being such an uncomfortable topic for people to hear about-all of those are so much "more" for me.
Something I firmly believe…
I learned to appreciate what clothing can do for your mind, body, and spirit, as long as it was done right. I truly believe that just the right pieces do have healing powers. Think about it, has there ever been a time when you put something on and all of the sudden you came alive? I don’t mean “come alive like Frankenstein.” I am referring to the "good for your spirit, makes your soul smile and come alive” kind of feeling. The very same one that also reignites your confidence, feeling on top of the world and that you can conquer anything kind of feeling. Perhaps a little edgy and sexy. Well, it happened to me and I fell in love with clothes again after years of struggles with eating/body issues that had me convinced “nothing looked good on me” or I “was too fat.” I finally realized that clothes were not so bad after all. All I needed were the right pieces, the right cuts, the right styles to flatter my size/body type, MY body, not what we perceive to be perfect (which doesn’t exist). It was then that I learned to appreciate labels with designers (AKA Curators of Magic) behind them who help us to find, see and appreciate the beauty that is already within us. The magic. The healing powers. I want to share them with women everywhere. Thank you for being here with us. Cheers to paying it forward, making a positive difference and treating yourself, or others, to retail therapy all at the same time.
Cliff Notes version: I am a graduate of The University of Georgia. I earned a BBA with a Major in Marketing from Terry College of Business & was an active member of Kappa Alpha Theta back then and now as an Alumna member. I earned my real estate license in Georgia, in 1999, and had a successful and rewarding career in residential real estate for over 16 years until relocations opened our journey to exploring the US. I also earned my real license in Kansas. I married the man of my dreams in 2002. Early on, he planted the seed of entrepreneurship and the idea of always doing what we love for work. Because when you love it, it's not work. It's a passion. Enter the dream of owning a boutique someday. Together we have 4 boys-a set of twins, Aidan & Cal; an angel in Heaven, Boden, who received his angel wings at 39 weeks; and our Rainbow baby, Declan. Our fur babies, since our story began, include 4 pups- 2 Min Pins & now 2 Australian Shepherds. Though we are Georgia Peaches, we have traveled and lived in the Northeast and now the Midwest, exploring our beautiful country and meeting phenomenal people along the way. But, our roots will always remain grounded in the south. In our house, no matter where, we believe in Faith, Hope, Love & Paying It Forward. Oh, and we cheer on the Georgia Bulldogs and we Roll with the Tide! Our house is SEC country.
