New Dawn Boutique is owned and operated by me, Tiffany VanSickle! I’m a small-town girl who was transplanted in suburban Kansas City as a teenager. I’ve had a love for fashion for as long as I can remember. Although I’m a girly-girl, I am also a tom boy. I love playing and watching sports and can shoot a mean three-pointer, even in four-inch heels. 🙂
I have worked many years of retail in my life! (Who would’ve guessed, right?!) I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue for about 4 years. Talk about amazing! I loved seeing all the gorgeous high-end clothes every day. 🙂 After college I worked as a Visual Merchandising Manager for Dillard’s which was fun! I loved making store displays and building the outfits, showcasing the current trends. I’ve also been on the beauty side of things! I managed a Regis-owned salon for almost two years. That was my last full-time job before staying home with my son.
My Style Inspiration
I am a stay-at-home Mom to two wonderful, energetic boys who are 9 and 5. Since I’m busy with them and taking care of our home, I like to dress for comfort – but trendy and fashionable at the same time.
Some of my favorite designers/brands are Cynthia Rowley, Lauren Conrad, Jessica Simpson, and Loft. I worked at Loft for over six years so the overall style they offer kinda became my own. 🙂
Some of my “style icons” include Lauren Conrad, Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani, and Jessica Simpson. I have always been a beach-girl at heart so I love the soft, “California style” that Lauren Conrad embraces. Victoria Beckham just always looks amazing. So well put together. I love Gwen Stefani’s down-to-earth style. And lastly, Jessica Simpson has such an awesome style of her own. I love how she mixes luxury with comfort. i.e…Ripped jeans, tee shirt, and stilletos.
New Beginnings. New Dawn!
New Dawn Boutique has been in the back of my mind for years, but I just finally pulled the trigger within the last year. I joined a few local Facebook groups and started selling some of my clothes and accessories that I hadn’t worn in a while. I soon realized that I could make a nice little side income! I had also quit my part-time retail job and missed helping women find things that made them feel good. I decided to put the two together and start my boutique!
My goal for New Dawn Boutique is to sell quality, relevant pieces at affordable prices so that anyone and everyone can buy things that will look good on them and help them feel beautiful! I know from experience that putting on a great outfit can help uplift your mood and help you feel better about yourself. I want to help others realize that and offer pieces to them that will do just that! Also, many people can’t afford to buy name brand clothing and accessories at full retail, so I want to offer items that can fit into a wide range of budgets. I also want to show my clients multiple ways to wear items so that they get more out of their wardrobe.
