The Ridley boutique has everything from fashion glitzy accessories, bracelets, necklaces, sunglasses and much more from cocktail dresses and tee-shirts...this boutique has it all. Even zebra luggage.
As trendy as it is, Shoenberger makes you feel at home and wants you to feel like you are in your sister's closet putting outfits together using a color scheme of gray, black and white which she attributes to her sister, Melissa. She's there to help you out. Prices range from $8 to $80. It's affordable fabulosity in an elegant setting.
"Everything goes together, you may not feel you have fashion sense but here you can find the right bracelet to match the shirt, " says Shoenberger.
Shoenberger has always loved fashion. At the age of two she was fashion forward. After graduating she took classes in the medical field and realized it wasn't what she loved so she starting out taking fashion on the road to people's homes much like Tupperware parties.
" I needed to do what makes me happy and shopping makes me happy. This is my closet. I want people to feel like they are at their sister's place and come and hang out. Love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life."
Right now the boutique offers women's clothes and accessories but soon will offer little girl accessories inspired by her niece, Taylor. Shoenberger is raising the nine year-old and Taylor is a fashionista in her own right. Shoenberger's eyes light up when she talks about her niece.
When she first thought about opening the store she was going to gear it towards little girls and still plans to have a part of High Maintenance for young girls with a separate entity, within the shop called Taylor's Bow-tique. The pink that you find in the store contrasting the neutrals is inspired by Taylor. And soon Shoenberger will have part of the store set aside for the younger set.
"Taylor helped out with every aspect of the store. She helped me with everything from steaming clothes, shopping, and tagging. She's a nine year old entrepreneur. She has her own lotion line,"said Shoenberger proudly.
Shoenberger's High Maintenance Boutique's grand opening is on Saturday, April 9 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. She will be giving away prizes every hour and with each purchase. The ribbon cutting will be at 4 p.m. Keep Styling in Delco!
