Fashion has driven me for many years. I moved to NYC after college without knowing a single person in pursuit of my dream to become a Buyer. I had a great career for a major retailer for several years but decided to go into business for myself. I love shopping for designer bargains!! I love the best quality items but without emptying my bank account. I started Haute and Soul because I love design and fashion, but I also believe that you don't have to go broke to look fabulous. I started out making beaded necklaces and bracelets years ago. I love creating anything that sparkles and shines. I love to say.... "A little lip gloss, Earrings and Arm Candy and you will be Haute!!!!"
