Welcome Dearest Readers
This will be the home of our boutique – Jeanni Champagne’s blog. Here I will write about pretty things in witty words.
First a bit our background; the boutique has a long standing history in Newport Beach, CA. The original founder of Champagne opened it’s doors in 1984 (the year I was born), coincidence I believe not.
While I was growing up in South Africa, the original founder Joan Howard was raising her baby _ Champagne Boutique in Orange County, California.
Worlds away. I grew up, went to school where I received a bachelors in Marketing and later in Accounting, I met my husband, fell in love, got married and we had our first baby in South Africa. I worked in fashion at one of South Africas leading fashion houses and that is when I first knew this was my love & passion. My parents had moved to the U.S about ten years ago and we’ve subsequently been visiting & fell in love with Orange County, we knew this was where we would raise our family. It was on one such visit where I came across Champagne Boutique which was for sale as the owner had decided to retire.
In October of 2013 I purchased and took over Champagne from the retiring owner and the rest is history. We’ve just celebrated our 3rd anniversary and I could not be more happy. Although a learning curve at first, fashion has alway come naturally to me. The fashion world is so creative and I have such an appreciation for creatives.
I recently launched a lovely little website http://www.shopjeanni.com and am excited to launch this blog to share the products we love, daily adventures as a mom & boutique owner to fashion-forward ladies across the country.
