If you follow me on Instagram, you’re familiar with the shopping haul videos I post in my stories. But after connecting with the family behind Hannah Rachel Boutique, I wanted to give y’all more than a quick try-on session. I wanted to share the heart and story behind this shop that makes it so special.
The three pieces I’ll review here are the top shown above, the vest shown below, and a tie-front dress. I received a medium in each item, and they all fit true to size. They arrived quickly, and came in cute packaging with a hand-written note! I was very pleased.
The vest shown here is currently part of flash sale and comes in navy as well. Hannah Rachel Boutique, or HRB as I’ve come to lovingly call them, has a similar vest in dark mustard on sale as well.
Owner, Annie Huffman, is a proud mom to two boys, and one girl – 14-year-old Hannah Rachel. Hannah shares her mom’s passion for cute, trendy clothes and shopping on a budget.
“After doing things a bit out of order – kids, marriage, and finally college – I decided to pursue my dream to start my own online clothing boutique,” Annie said. “The Hannah Rachel brand was inspired by a big love of clothing on a not-so-big budget. I am excited to provide cute, affordable, easy, everyday fashion for my fellow women on-the-go.”
I paired this open-shoulder top with a scarf I’ve had for years, and I love that I can wear it off-the-shoulder as well. The sleeves billow before tapering and the wrist, and the end of the top clings a bit as well – making it the perfect comfy/cute addition to your closet!
Next up is this festive vest. I love the burgundy as a pop of color in my otherwise neutral wardrobe. For years, I wore nothing but black and gray, but I’ve slowly added a few fun pieces to my closet and this vest is a nice winter staple! You cannot beat the price point for this high quality. Each side has a zipper pocket, which is great because I wore it out the other day and threw my debit card into the side pocket. I didn’t have to worry about it falling out since the pockets actually close! And of course I’m obsessed with the gold accents.
This is not by accident. Annie strives to supply her shoppers with practical, high-quality items, at affordable prices, from reputable manufacturers.
“My vision for Hannah Rachel Boutique is to grow a collection of pieces that women can wear in their everyday grind that helps them feel great and doesn’t cost a fortune,” she said. “Although the process of starting an online business has had it’s challenges, the reward of providing a product the customer loves is well worth it.”
And last, we have this gorgeous long sleeve dress. I love the feminine confidence I get from wearing a good dress, and this is my favorite pick from my HRB haul. Here, I’ve styled it with opaque leggings for a more chic look, but you could wear it with sheer hose and a dainty necklace for date night.
I love how to tie-front accentuates my waist without being too tight or short. This length is perfect for me to wear to school with hose and black flats – fashionable, but professional.
“I recently stumbled across this quote: ‘Never underestimate the power of a good outfit on a bad day’,” Annie said. “Sometimes the confidence you find from looking great in a cute top or dressing up in a pretty skirt is all the motivation you need to tackle a hectic day.”
I could not relate more to that. On exam days, I wake up extra early to do my hair and makeup, because I truly believe in the mantra: Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good. And I just love that Annie’s mission is to help women live their best lives without breaking the bank!
When she’s not searching her wholesalers for the perfect pieces, Annie spends time with her family – fishing, playing games, watching movies – and of course, shopping. One of the things I love most about Annie and HRB is that she’s a believer and her favorite verse is John 1:16, “For from His fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”
Other HRB tops I love!
I hope you enjoyed this try-on and thanks so much for reading!
