At Ellie & Adair, our first goal is to keep you cute and trendy for less than you'd expect. We love clothes but hate spending a lot of money. So we opened this shop so that busy women can look cute, feel trendy and stay in budget. We don't like wearing what everyone else is wearing. So we find unique, in-style, boutique-quality clothing and offer it to you for a fair price.
That's the short version. If you want the longer one, I'll start here. My love affair with clothes began when I was 5 years old with a pair of bell bottom jeans. They had appliquéd flowers around the bottom. I wanted to wear them every day and I remember saying to myself, what would I do without these jeans? Yep, it started early.
My mom was a bit of a fashionista. She grew up in LA and was voted Best Dressed in High School. My sister was voted Best Dressed too. I wasn't, so I guess I've spent the rest of my life proving that I deserved it! Totally kidding:) We have always loved unique, beautiful clothes. I have been surrounded by well-dressed women my whole life.
Now, I know clothes aren't connected to the meaning of life, but I believe women love to look beautiful. It doesn't matter who you are, we all love to feel pretty. And an outfit can change our mood quickly. It's just the way we are wired. AmIright?
I'm a mom of 4 cherished girls. In 2007, our youngest child was born with a serious medical condition. My life was turned upside down, flipped around sideways and smacked across the room. The years that followed are a bit of a blur, actually. Survival was our main goal--both hers and ours. She's 10 now, and we are all doing fairly awesome. At some point, I realized I had lost a bit of myself. I lived in workout clothes. Nothing wrong with that, but I noticed that when I put on a cute outfit, my mood changed. So I started getting dressed.
The problem is, I have expensive taste. I love Anthropologie and Nordstrom and Free People and everything in between. And my budget couldn't keep up with my taste. So I researched and found brands that were just as cute but much less expensive. After a year of researching, my super-supportive husband asked, "What are you waiting for?" and I launched my own store.
I only sell online because it is a way to live my dream alongside my sweet girl, who will always be with me. Her middle name is Elizabeth and mine is Adair, so Ellie & Adair is our dream realized. She's my partner in crime here.
It is our joy to bring you cuteness at a fair price and to hopefully brighten your day with kindness and love.
We have a small team here to help you. But we want nothing more than you to be happy and to walk away better because of us. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much for stopping by today:)
