Happy 2nd birthday to Ella Rue!
Ella Rue is darling little consignment boutique tucked away on one of my favorite tree-lined streets in Georgetown and today is the 2nd anniversary of the shop's opening!
An old friend of mine, Krista Johnson, started plans for the store right about the time I was starting my commission business. She named the store after her two puppies Ella and Rue. And yes, that's the three of them illustrated above. If you look at her current website - she has a new site coming soon featuring many new illustrations of mine - you'll see one of my very first commission sketches I created for her back in 2009.
I remember our first meeting at Baked & Wired (if you are in DC, amazing cupcakes) to talk about her design, we had no idea what would come of all of this. I'm pretty proud of what both of us have accomplished in the last few years!
Krista has curated a collection of high end designer items and I'm looking forward to popping in to see what she has in store when I head home for Thanksgiving.
So happy birthday to the ER team, I hope Ella and Rue are getting extra treats today!
