About Us

"It was the straying that found the path direct." ~Austin Osman Spare

Working as a spokesmodel for six years, I often traveled to different cities across the country. I loved finding the cute and funky boutiques so I could shop for unique pieces of clothing, accessories, and home goods.

After I got married and had kids, I wanted to limit my travelling so I changed careers and became a stylist. I started out by styling my husband, a TV personality. People kept asking me where I found his clothing and accessories. I knew I was onto something, because others wanted what he was wearing!

My husband and I recently moved to Newtown, CT to raise our three beautiful children. I decided to open my own boutique so I could showcase my favorite brands of clothing, accessories, beauty products, and home goods. And with that, Basil Rose Boutique was born! 

I'm excited to share my passion for helping people express themselves through style. I see the world through "rose-colored" glasses, and want everyone who comes into Basil Rose Boutique to find the most beautiful assortment of funky, romantic, and vintage-inspired items that I truly love. My hope is that you'll discover that special something you didn't know you needed until you saw it. 

Happy shopping!

With love and roses,
