Tuesday’s we feature Boutiques all over the world that sell MIKAROSE in their Shop. Today we are featuring Paisley Skye in Bountiful, UT.
What is the name and location of your Boutique?
My boutique is Paisley Skye and I am located at 122 S Main in Bountiful, Utah. My shop is on a beautiful historical main street where there are other lovely shops. It is a fun place to come visit, have lunch and shop your little heart out.
What items do you sell at your Boutique?
My boutique carries both vintage inspired and modern home accents, gifts, jewelry, hats, purses, dresses, skirts and tops. A large majority of our clothing is inspired from the styles of the 1940’s and 1950’s.
What do you love about MIKAROSE Clothing Line?
I love the MIKAROSE line because I can make it vintage or I can make it modern. It depends on what style the customer prefers. Some gals aren’t into vintage as much as others, and they don’t always realize that they are actually wearing something that is vintage inspired. But, some gals, absolutely LOVE vintage and those gals are the most fun to dress. I can pair a MIKAROSE vintage pencil skirt with one of their more modern tops and make it look more current or I can pair it with one of their fitted blouses that ties at the neck and a top it off cloche hat and give it a total 1940’s secretary look. That’s what I love about the brand, it is very versatile.

What do you enjoy most about running a Boutique?
I have spent most of my career working with troubled teens so owning and running a boutique is relatively new to me. The first 12 years of my career were spent working in an adolescent treatment center, as a youth corrections counselor, as a juvenile probation officer and then as a high school counselor. I loved what I did before. I loved making a difference and helping people. I loved the challenge of working with those really difficult kids nobody wanted to work with. But, I wasn’t able to explore my creativity in those jobs like I am able to now. Even though it fed my soul to help those kids, it also was very draining and it stifled my creativity. What I love about owning a boutique is that I get to be creative all of the time. I get to be creative in the design of my store, the type of merchandise I order in, how I display it and how I advertise it. What I did before and what I do now, this is a walk in the park in comparison to stress level and fun. This job is just plain fun!
