Readers, as promised in my previous post, here is Vanessa from Modern Mix Boutique to answer some questions I put to her about her shop, Vancouver fashion and style, and how she stays fabulously on time!
I’ve been running Modern Mix Vancouver for 5 years – consistently staying on top of fashion, beauty and lifestyle trends. It was a natural transition for me to start something like Modern Mix Boutique and share with my readers and customers stylish accessories I love and make them available for purchase at an affordable price point.
What inspired you to start MMB?
When I was 16, I had my own handmade jewellery business which I brought to different boutiques in Vancouver for them to place in-stores and sell to their customers. I’ve always had an eye for jewellery trends and colours. I chose to begin with jewellery and accessories on Modern Mix Boutique because it was so simple to put together a beautiful collection of products. My customers don’t have to worry about fit and sizing which is often a concern for shopping online – earrings and bracelets are pretty much one size fits all!
What is the most important thing you’ve learned through running your own blog, and now boutique?
On the flip side, I was also overwhelmed with support and encouragement when I first started Modern Mix Boutique – I’ve learned you have to believe in yourself.
