Jade Greer has created an original Hampden jewel. K Staton is a boutique where trendy plus-size fashions are hand picked by a woman that knows style.
On Saturday, September 10, the Hampden boutique once located inside Lynne’s Gift will be having a Grand Opening at its new location 1007A West 36 Street.
“I felt that this [Lynne’s Gift] would be a great location for us to grow and make a name for ourselves,” Greer said. Our plan was to always expand.
The only thing was we did not know when. The space that we were in was a small space,but just right for us at the time. Now with more and more women knowing about us we needed the larger space.”
The boutique’s new home directly across from the famous Café Hon brings the debut of two lingerie brands Elomi and Goddess as well as new apparel brands LaDan’s Closet and Kische.
Aside from gorgeous new brands, Jade will offer her FIT 101 classes that offer tips about feeling comfortable and great in the outfits her customers wears.
In the midst of moving K Staton, I was able to talk to the owner about why she loves her boutique and her favorite trends for fall 2011.
What do you love about owning K Staton Boutique?
There are so many things I love about owning K Staton Boutique. First and foremost, are the women I get to meet, talk with, dress, and build relationships with!
All the women that come into K Staton Boutique are fun and full of energy. You should hear some of the things these girls say.
I get to dress these ladies for weddings, graduations parties, baby showers, and the list goes on so it’s kind of like i get to go to these events, too.
I love interacting with people and making them feel beautiful at the same time.
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is classic sophistication with a touch of edge or trend. I love pieces that are timeless, yet can be transformed into many different looks.
I do pay attention to the trends and what’s so called “hot”.
Being a plus size women, I try to teach my girls that we need FIT before trend because if something fits you right based on your shape and body type than heads will turn every time.
What are your favorite trends for Fall 2011?
Color Blocked Dresses– I love the idea of this in a dress for a woman. Especially for a “Kurvy” woman! It very modern and gives the body an amazing silhouette.
Polka Dots – Something that we have seen before,but they just seem to be done right this season. For my girls who might be a little questionable about the dots, they can try doing the trend in hosiery!
Crimson Red – The red lip has been going strong for a few seasons and it’s not going anywhere this fall. We are also seeing red in pants, tops, and skirts!
What are three things you love for Fall 2011 at K Staton?
Color, Color and more Color – I try to help my girls see that color can make you feel and look just as good as a black ensemble. You will find deep jewel tone colors everywhere you turn in the boutique this season!
Luxe Leopard Print– Showing spots in bags, tops, and shoes!
The Cardigan– I love my Cardigans! It’s the prefect seasonal piece to layer over a dress for work or over a tunic or sequin top and skinny jeans.
