I started this post at least 10 times. I would begin a sentence and delete it...write something else and erase it. I just didn't know the words I wanted to use as an introduction for someone I truly admire and adore. You want it to be just right and make them proud.
Okay, here goes. I am gonna do my best to make my Texas buddy, Becka with Kiki La'Rue beam with excitement. She and I "met" almost one year ago today. In fact, we teamed up on August 1st of last year with this post. It's kind of crazy to think where our friendship has come since then. It all started with her messaging me on Facebook about styling a dress from her shop. Kiki La'Rue was still pretty new and I am sure Becka had no idea what was coming her way in just a few short months.
This girl is the epitome of greatness when it comes to going for your dreams and how hard work REALLY does pay off. I have never seen one lady, her husband and little "Woobie" work so incredibly hard at a business. She is up all hours of the night, personally responding to her customers, overseeing every detail, keeping us all updated on new arrivals, being genuine and engaging us with her dedication and heart.
It has been such a pleasure to watch her store grow into something HUGE! What's even better is actually having a real friendship with this girl. We have chatted for hours on the phone, texted back and forth and supported one another since the get go.
I can almost guarantee that you will not meet another store owner that is as hands on as Becka. Kiki La'Rue is her second child and she goes above and beyond with her customer service, pays attention to every detail, truly listens to her customers and provides women of every shape and size the chance to be stylish without breaking the bank. I swear, I don't know how she does it. I think it must be super human powers.
I cannot say enough about Becka and Kiki La'Rue. You can even ask some of my IRL friends about her. I talk about her every chance I get. She is a solid example of success. It makes my heart happy to see someone so deserving become such a rock star. I am not just saying this because she sent me a few pieces to style on my blog. I 100% believe in her, her business and offerings.
If you have purchased a piece from her before, follow her on social media or know her personally, you know what I am talking about.
If Kiki La'Rue is new to you, I highly recommend that you take some time today and visit her shop. She is constantly adding new items to her store and giving us a play by play of what's going on through all her social media outlets.
You will be seeing more items that I styled from Kiki La'Rue in the coming weeks. I am dying to share more of my favorites, plus there might even be a giveaway in store.
Becka is so kind to offer a 10% discount to her store for all my friends and readers. Just use the code SSaidSo10 at checkout. Let me know what you get and be sure to tell Becka I sent you!
