Born and raised on the Cape, I am a true beach girl at heart. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else and of course having my family close is a major plus. I come from a product design and sourcing background. For the past 6 years I have been travelling back and forth from Asia, sourcing for a wholesale home décor and gift company. Although I enjoy the travel, its hard at times to be so far away and I found myself wondering what else I could do. I have always wanted to start my own business and I thought now was the time, why put it off any longer!
I want to bring you fun trendy clothing that doesn’t break the bank and makes you feel great. It’s also important for me to offer something for every body shape, clothing that fits real bodies, not the size 0 models we see everywhere (no offense if you are a size 0- if I could only be as lucky!). I have personally always struggled with finding clothes that were true to size and or fit right. So at Harp & Sole Boutique, I hope to be able to offer a better solution for all you online shoppers who are tired of ordering and returning all the time!
Why the name Harp & Sole?
Harp is short for my best friend a.k.a sidekick a.k.a my black lab mix Harper! I adopted her while living in Florida and going to college. She has been a part of so many life events, from graduating college, moving up the East coast, new jobs, relationships and getting married. I couldn’t imagine going through any of this without her by my side. So I thought it was only appropriate to incorporate her into my title of my next chapter. Although, I can’t only thank Harper for the inspiration, as my sister is the one who came up with the name. I struggled on what to name my boutique and one night while I was in China on a sourcing trip I got a message from my sister telling me she figured out a name, “Harp & Sole” I said I loved it and it stuck! I thought it was a perfect name to incorporate Harper and my love for fashion and shoes, but it’s also a clever play on the words. I have finally decided to follow my heart & soul and do something I have always wanted to do.
