We had the good fortune of connecting with Aaileyah Lynn and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Aaileyah, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
You know this is Such a Great question! My thought process behind the vision of my Business was to Inspire, uplift and bring awareness amongst young female aspiring entrepreneurs. I have always had a Passion For Fashion! Fashion is my heart and soul ever since I was a little girl watching ANTM. I’ve had countless role models and influencers who have inspired me to dive deeper into fashion and make it a business or career path. I just love everything about it! It excites me and makes me feel good. It’s a great way to show self-expression and just overall represent yourself in either a personal or professional way. There’s so much versatility in the industry; you can never run out of ideas. I was always raised to dress presentable and look the standard of whatever it is you’re trying to achieve. I truly believe the way that you dress and carry yourself daily affects your career path; and most importantly how others view you! You never know who’s watching or may want to approach you for the next big opportunity! You should set the standard when you walk through a room and be the example you want your employees or clients to view you as. I want to be a great role model for young women striving for their careers or passion. Being bold, fierce, bright but still tasteful is what my brand showcases. It’s all about class! Miss Madame Boutique is a brand that represents fierce women and women empowerment, confidence and professionalism. It’s a true example of a Girl Boss; and that is what I wanted to portray to my audience. There are so many boutiques I see online daily that do not cater to independent professionals, entrepreneurs, or corporate America.
99% of them are party or club attire. In my opinion, that’s getting old! Everyone isn’t seeking that.
My Brand is a taste of something unique and refreshing online for Girl Bosses and aspiring entrepreneurs to experience.
Miss Madame Boutique offers versatility in our apparel for a convenient work life balance. You’re never overdressed or underdressed. Our attire is suitable to wear all day long and to attend your after-work affairs. Entrepreneurs love convenience! So we’re solving that problem for them in their busy work life – So that is a Huge Niche that my boutique offers compared to others.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I would say that I am a ‘jack of all trades’ type of girl. I am a highly creative individual, multi-talented with a lot of passions. Currently, I work in the sales industry; so, I’m always online showcasing products or services to others and building connections. I am also an aspiring youtuber part time. It’s more of a hobby that I started a year ago and used to create fashion content. At the same time, I was building an audience and platform which could eventually turn into a business. In addition to that, I’m always attending networking events or meetings where I can socialize with individuals who are more seasoned in my field. I’ve always been someone who liked to learn or be mentored on how I can get to the next level. Learning how to invest in myself and explore new avenues of income stream is exciting and definitely keeps me busy. Furthermore, of course now, I’m building a Women’s Online Clothing brand which also keeps me very busy from managing inventory, photoshoots, social media marketing, content creation and collaborative projects. It’s a huge job all by itself. It takes a ton of hard work, patience and dedication to keep it flowing. It doesn’t feel like work to me because I love what I am doing, and I am just having fun while building a dream. If you’re not having fun then what’s the point? Right?
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I will say some of my favorite spots in the cities would be the Los colinas area around Mandalay canal. It’s a great scene to walk around and sight see or even ride the boat down the canal with your loved ones. The best restaurants in the area for me were to eat ocean prime downtown or Jinbeh Hibachi restaurant in Los colinas. Some of my favorite activities would be going to top golf or to Dave & Busters!
Addison, Texas has the best nail salons for manicures and pedicures .
Paciugo Gelato is my choice for the ultimate desert experience.
Galleria mall is nice for the luxury shopping and designer lifestyle.
Six flags is a popular amusement theme park for entertainment.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to give recognition to my Grandmother Mattie Wilson because she is the only woman who inspired and taught me self-respect and class . Therefore, she is the reason I was able to come up with such a meaningful brand for young ladies.
