Meet Our Founder, Deanna Alston ( Wife + Mom + Nurse )
I started Conquer & Shine Boutique in 2018 as a creative outlet to combine my love of art, music, and fashion. We offer a wide variety of women's clothing and accessories ranging from sizes Sm-3xl. As a Gen Xer I got to experience 80's fashion first hand and it was amazing. It was something about those vivid colors, bold patterns, and shoulder pads that made you feel beautiful, carefree, and confident. But as the years go by, some of us get married, have kids, and then life happens.
As we age our bodies are faced with several changes and sometimes physical challenges that can make us feel vulnerable and uncomfortable. I know all too well what that feels like after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease in my 40's. I had to make a few adjustments in my life and it wasn't easy. But once I began to accept "This New Version of ME " I learned to fall in love with myself all over again. It is so important that we as women see ourselves as beautiful and learn to embrace every imperfection and give ourselves grace.
Women should have a space where they can step into their power, feel the confidence and strength to pursue any endeavor in their lives, without judgment or intimidation. So go ahead and live your life out loud with our carefully curated collections at Conquer & Shine Boutique. Whether you're picking out an outfit for work, date night, or going to brunch with friends don't be afraid to switch things up, mix and match our favorite bold prints or feel free to create a more classic look with our timeless quiet pieces because "There's a style for every story."
