Best Boutique Clothing Store
Jess & Rosie’s
Jess & Rosie’s gets its name from its co-owners’ loved ones — Jess Cooper, grandfather of Todd May, and Rosemary Rendina-O’Bryan, grandmother of Ann O’Bryan. A story board in the women’s clothing boutique, 5633 S.W. 21st St., displays pictures of and a little information about the couple’s grandparents.
“Our family loves it,” O’Bryan said.
May and O’Bryan are always looking for things to add to the inventory of the 3,000-plus-square-foot boutique.
“I love clothing, I love accessories. I love being able to help women pick out something that makes them feel really great,” O’Bryan said. “We have a lot of people that come in and they need a new outfit for their class reunion or for a wedding, or some sort of special event. … We have more casual to a little bit dressy.”
O’Bryan goes to market shows five times a year to check out the latest trends and buy the store’s best-sellers and customers’ favorites. She buys only a few pieces, so everything is one-of-a-kind and unique to her shop.
The store sells TOMS shoes; Brighton jewelry; Premium Denim apparel; men’s underwear; fun socks; meat rubs, dips and sauces; candles in recycled beer and wine bottles that are poured in Leavenworth; Lipsense, a lip color that lasts up to 18 hours; and many other items. The boutique also stages trunk shows for artists.
