Spring is finally here and with a change in seasons, you may also be needing a change in wardrobe. I’m so thrilled to introduce you to another one of my lady boss friends, Dalton Cohen, owner of Texas Soul Boutique in Ozark, Missouri. She is pictured above in the center of the photo with her mom, Shannon Stewart, to the right and her grandmother, Nancy Riffell, to the left.
If the name Texas Soul sounds familiar, the last woman in business I featured, Callie Harwell, has some of her pieces in Dalton’s store. Dalton is from Nixa, Missouri and married her high school sweetheart, Jared. They have two kiddos, Frances and Walter.
Dalton has always been interested in fashion and shopping since she was a little girl. “I remember going shopping with my mom and [her grandmother] Mimi and they are some of my greatest memories”, Dalton recalls. She even took fashion design courses in high school and was voted most unique style. “It was always a small dream of mine to one day own my own boutique, I just never thought it’d become a reality. God knew the desires of my heart and has blessed me with this amazing opportunity.”
She started Texas Soul initially in April 2016 making jewelry for herself and after getting questions about where she got her jewelry, started taking custom orders. Last year, she decided to further her business venture. “Back in June, I decided to take a leap of faith and add the boutique side,” she explains. “[I began] selling online and in another small boutique. In February, we saw the opportunity to open our own store and the rest is history.”
Not only does Dalton offer her own styles but she has also collaborated with other local boutique owners and offers their styles in her shop as well. Regarding the collaboration she says, “When I knew we were able to expand our business, I had several other amazing business women I knew I wanted to partner with. It has always been so important to me to support other women. Getting to share a business and ideas with these other women has created such an amazing community of women. I am so blessed to have these ladies in my life.”
The boutique is named after a trip Dalton took with her mother and grandmother to Round Top, Texas for their antique week. Even though she and her family reside in Missouri, “their souls live in Texas”. The store itself is something to see with its custom design. “From our vintage décor (hanging clothes from old chairs), the beautiful
I visited Texas Soul during their grand opening in March and it’s truly an experience. There are so many different styles and with carrying baby items to plus sizes, there is something for everyone. It’s also affordable with pricing from $18-$45 as well as a few higher end pieces. I was sad that I only bought one duster sweater since I’m pregnant, growing and who knows what size I’ll be after this baby is born. 😊 But I’ll definitely be there in the fall when I’m ready to go shopping again.
If you are still on the hunt for an Easter outfit or just want some new pieces to complete your spring wardrobe, this a great place to visit. They’ll be having a sale this Saturday, April 13th, with 20% off Easter wear and dresses and an Easter egg hunt for savings so go see them. Tell them I sent you. 😍
With the mantra, ” You are powerful, brilliant, beautiful, and brave.”, they truly embody not only style but female empowerment. “We want all women to feel loved and beautiful when they walk through our doors,” Dalton adds.
