Thanks for visiting Style Sophistiqué boutique! I’m Christine Turner from Houston, TX, where I live with my husband and twin baby boys! I’m excited to share my personal favorite styles with you online and through our social media channels! For the past decade, I have styled and empowered thousands of women as a Founding Leader of Stella & Dot, and just recently began styling with Park Lane. Before that I spent almost a decade in the fashion magazine industry in NYC. Working at publications from InStyle, Elle, Glamour and SELF, I gained valuable knowledge on both the aspirational side of fashion as well as the importance of accessibility and versatility for the average woman to actually buy.
While many large retailers offer accessible price points, I find myself frustrated by the time it takes scrolling through pages and pages of options online not knowing how it would fit on a “real” person, or going through rack after rack in stores to find things that seemed high quality, affordable, and unique. And once I do find something, I long for someone to be able to show or tell me styling options, whether it be a sales person or a friend! Basically, I wanted a personal shopper without having to pay for one!
Being in the business of personal style AND personal service, I witness firsthand how valuable the blend of those two are. I started Style Sophistique because I believe that shopping should be easy and fun. I save you time searching through endless options by finding pieces I personally wear and stand by. While many of items can be seasonal staples, nothing is simply “basic.” Basic can be found anywhere, and my mission is to help you look unique in elevated basics and fun prints while feeling put together with styling options. If I wouldn’t wear it, I wouldn’t offer it to you!
I hope that you will enjoy your shopping experience as much as I enjoy bringing it to your closet…and of course, mine! ;)
