PERFECT PROFESSIONAL: FRANKIE + MILLIE BEBE.
I was so fortunate to discover the adorable online boutique, Frankie + Millie Bebe and have been in love with their perfectly curated selection of items ever since. As if I couldn't love their taste any more, I LOVE that Frankie + Millie Bebe was started by three sisters! Swoon!! Love when sisters work together!

Tell us a little bit about yourselves!
We are three sisters who were born and raised in a tiny town where there is little-to-no shopping. Our mom drilled in our brains at a young age all things fashion, so since before we can remember we have wanted to do something in the industry. We are very different in our own "unique" ways but remain close despite our differences.
What did you do for work before you launched Frankie + Millie Bebe?
Hollis worked for an orthopedic sales company, and Spencer and Libba both worked for an investment company.
Why did you launch your online store?
We all love fashion and each have our own individual styles. Our mom had a boutique for a few years, and ever since she closed we day dreamed about coming together and opening our own. Now that we are at the age where children are around, and there's not much shopping where we are from, we thought it would be fun to go with children's clothes. We chose to do an online store because we feel like people are moving more towards online shopping- it's quick and easy for the shoppers!
What's been your favorite part of having your own company?
We all get to work together! It's been really fun to bring our own creative ideas and different styles together and see how it all unfolds!
What's been the hardest part?
The hardest part is a bit of a catch 22- being an online store. Sometimes there's nothing better than walking through a store, touching a garment and falling immediately in love and having to have it, which customers don't necessarily get with an online store. But with social media, and being able to post pictures of our customers in the clothes definitely gives people the idea of how the items fit and look!
What advice do you have for people who want to start their own company?
Just go for it! Stop day dreaming, and give it a shot. And if you're lucky enough to have siblings, convince them to join in, you won't regret it!
