Gabriella’s Designs is a handmade children’s clothing boutique that creates beautiful, fun clothes for the little ladies who want to be kids, but want to be unique. Buying Gabriella’s Designs clothing will help her show off her unique quirkiness while giggling her way through the day. I offer custom order spots for anyone who wishes to have a completely custom, gorgeous outfit to perfectly tailor to their style. I’m very active on Instagram, so I’d love to have you connect with me over there: @gabriellasdesigns
Hey there! I’m Veronica! and I am the whole shebam behind Gabriella’s Designs. I have a real passion for sewing, designing and creating every single piece of clothing that goes through my machine. I’m also Mommy to a rambunctious, high energy, self proclaimed Pirate Princess-three year old and wife to a nerdy, hilarious, software developer/Super Dad. If you’d like to read more about my story and why I started this business, keep reading below. Thank you so much for stopping by!
In 2013, I had stepped into a career path that essentially had me training to eventually take over managing two retail bank staffs in a regional bank in town. I had fallen into banking and had a knack for customer service, staff development and training and sales. I thought that I was on the best path for me, mainly because it was entirely practical and I was good at my job. During that year, my daughter was born and my father began battling lung cancer. In 2014, my entire world was rocked when my Dad, instead of getting better, got worse and was gone before I could breath. When I lost him, my whole world changed. For a man that I always believed to be nearly invincible to pass away at 50, was and still is, hard for me to grasp. I was miserable, grieving and lost. My husband and I decided something had to change and I took a gigantic leap and left my promising career behind. My then 18 month old daughter came home with me full time and I tried to figure out what I really wanted to do with my future. I spent awhile just figuring out the best course for me and spending time with my daughter.
In the summer of 2014, I decided to stop being afraid and to pursue my passion. Gabriella’s Designs became my love letter to my daughter. Named after her, this business is a fulfillment of my dreams to work for myself, doing what I love and proving to her that everything is possible with hard work. My hope is that both she (and you!) can see that we all have dreams and passions that we can pursue in our lives.
Let me say how much I appreciate having you here with me! I genuinely applaud you for taking steps to supporting small business, handmade businesses and your community. By buying from my shop, you are not only getting a high quality, beautiful item, you are also supporting a work at home Mom’s dreams to run a business she loves, for a toddler to take gymnastics classes that make her unbelievably happy, to help a family be able to buy their first home and so much more. By supporting handmade and small business, just remember, you aren’t helping a CEO buy another sports car or vacation home, you are helping a family live their life in a way they only once dreamed, helping put food on their table, helping with the small things that are actually big things. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
