Hey gorgeous and welcome to Southern Crush Boutique. I'm Annie Kilko; owner of SCB, Spiritual Goddess, Girl Boss, Mompreneur, Mom, Daughter, Sister, Wife, and Friend. I love Jesus, but I definitely cuss a lot. I started this journey of boutique owner to help moms, daughters, and friends look as beautiful on the outside as they feel on this inside.
5 years ago, after my mom died too early from breast cancer, I decided that I wanted to live life to the fullest. That I was meant to do more than just work at a job that I didn’t like for the next 20 years. I started by making hand made jewelry and not long after that, I moved into selling clothes too & I realized THAT was my passion. THAT lights my fire! When I see other babes rocking clothes they purchased from me, I am filled with pride.
I believe that everything in life happens for a reason. Life is always happening for you, not to you. Moving into a brick and mortar location has always been a dream, but one that I wasn’t sure would come true. But because life is always happening for us and not to us, my husband and I were able to turn a bad situation into a positive, and for that I am forever grateful! With the support of my loving husband Kent, and my kids Jackson and Lauren, I am able to live my dream. And not only am I living my dream, I am teaching my kids to go for their dream...ALWAYS!
Fast Forward a year and I still have the same butterflies in my stomach that I had when we opened. I have a passion for lifting up and supporting other babes and that is the experience Southern Crush provides. Southern Crush is a place where babes of all ages can come to enjoy their shopping experience and leave feeling gorgeous! If you are catching my vibe then WE are your TRIBE. I can’t wait to meet you and hope you love shopping at Southern Crush as much as I love running it!
