I started my boutique with a broad vision.... wrote my business plan in three days and funded my plan all with savings. As I started purchasing products, I really tried to broaden my range to see what customers would want to see in a boutique.
One afternoon, I searched for hours through endless catalogs and sell sheets for the "it" products to be purchased and placed in my shop. Much to my surprise, I had stumbled on knitted boot warmers. I've seen them periodically but never really thought to much about them until I was launching La Niche. Now without giving up my age, I remember leg warmers from the 80's. Big, bulky, chunky printed material that you would wear with your cuffed stone-washed jeans and Reeboks. These babies had everything on them from rainbows, day-glow and even unicorns. I sat and thought to myself: OMG... I am buying leg warmers! Nostalgia is funny because I immediately had flash back of parachute pants and Hypercolor tees. I snapped out of that pretty quickly... and made a mental note to hide photo albums from my siblings when they come over for the holidays.
Now, fast forward to 2014, boot warmers are really a trimmed down version of their arch nemesis " the 1980's Jazzersize leg warmers" that Jane Fonda followers loved so much. With all jokes aside, I purchased a pair for myself in addition to the shop and everyone quickly fell in love with the style and not to mention the added warmth! Surprisingly these cute boot warmers have been the biggest hit in the shop and I'm always trying to find new styles that will peak someones fashion pallet without pinching the pocketbook. These boot warmers are really a nice addition to any wardrobe. Wear them paired with skinny jeans and a classic pair of ankle boots and you're walking out of the house cute and put together. Boot warmers start at 8.99. Can't get out to La Niche Boutique? Shop online on Small Business Saturday - Nov 29, 2014 and receive free shipping. Use Coupon Code FREESBS.
