Let me introduce you to our second STB Babe of the Week, Stephanie Owens!
How would you describe your style?
I would say my style is classic and chic...with a retro twist. I like wearing clashing solids of the same hue, layering different patterns like fair isle and stripes, and I love a good floral just as much as the next girl. I also feel like my style is ever evolving. I go through different phases where I feel like I need to step my game up in various areas. For example, this past winter I decided it was about time I got into the vest game, so I purchased a few different vests that I was able to pair with other items I already had, for a new look.
What's your "go-to" item in your closet?
I feel like I have a different go-to item for every season. If I had to pick just one though, it would probably be my light wash chambray button down. Anytime I travel, it's something that I always pack because it's so versatile. I can dress it up with a scarf or necklace, or tie it around my waist and pair it with some chucks for a more casual look.
If you could try out any job for a day, what would you try and why?
That's a great question, I would love to be a high end stylist for a day. I think it would be so cool to pick out looks for a specific person, and hopefully help them feel confident and comfortable in clothes that they might not have picked out for themselves otherwise.
What's your favorite thing to do on your down time?
I don't know if this would be considered a down time activity, but I really enjoy coaching soccer when I'm not working. I am currently coaching two different teams and I find it to be both enjoyable and fulfilling. Other than that, I really like to dress up and go out to eat, and to read. My fiancé, Greg, makes fun of me all the time because I get so into the books I'm reading.
What do you love about STB?
From the very first time I walked in to Single Thread, I loved it. There is just a feeling you get when you walk into certain shops where you just know you will find something great. I know that sounds so cheesy but it's true! I had that feeling when I walked into STB and I wasn't disappointed. My favorite thing about STB is probably that I can find different types of pieces there. I don't like wearing the same things as everyone else, and so I like that I can always find something unique that fits my mood. I also love how nice the girls are every time I go. I live out of town now so I can't go as much as I used to, but every time I make a trip home to Evansville, STB is one of the places I have to stop by.
What do you think makes an "STB Babe?"
I would say someone who knows how to pair STB pieces well, and wears them with confidence. I also am a firm believer that when you find a great store like STB, you should spread the word to others about how great the place is. So an STB Babe is a girl who helps promote the boutique when she can as a way to pay it forward, in a sense.
