Meet Alex: Hello! I'm Alex, owner of Ally B, mom of two boys and farmers wife. After earning a Fashion Merchandising degree, I immediately opened Ally B at the ripe age of 20. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and how much work was ahead. But thank the good Lord and our wonderful customers we are still here, doing well and I LOVE my job! Now, NINE years later, Ally B has wonderful girls that help me with the store and I am able to spend half of my days with my one and four year old boys. We just built our forever home on the farm, down a dirt field road and deep into the woods. If you did not know where you were going, you would never know we were back there. It is my little piece of heaven!
Where did you get the name Ally B: This is a question I get asked the most. I most of the time simply answer, "Because it was a nick name" and leave it at that. Well, here is the full run down. :) The main reason I chose Ally B was because my dad often called me Ally when I was young. It was really Ally Boo Boo. But, that is the part I do not normally tell! haha From the moment I said I wanted to open a store he supported me 100%. I admire him as an extremely smart and successful businessman and entrepreneur. I thought it was only fitting to pay him a little homage in the name. :)
How would you describe your style: Well, let me just be honest here. After having my babies and turning 30, for the first time in my life I feel like I am having a "style evolution". More like, I am being forced out of all of the clothes I once wore and into a size (or so) up and a more conservative, mom approved look. These days my jewelry is limited from either Luke pulling it or chewing on it and Zack pretending its a sling shot. I go for outfits that are still trendy, yet versatile for work or playing with the kiddos. If I had to describe my style in one word I would go for Classic. I am not one to jump on board with the must have item of the year. I don't want to have on the same look as everyone else at the party and I also want to be able to wear each item year after year.
What is your go to staple: I absolutely could not live without my Jag Jeans. We have been carrying them for about three years now and I seriously have not worn another brand of jeans since. They are soooo comfortable and fit perfect. For those of you not familiar, they are a PULL ON denim with a thick waist band that sits right on the hips. It smooths out and covers the dreaded muffin top without being super tight and uncomfortable. They are HEAVEN.
Favorite place to travel: Any beach has always been my favorite place to go. We got married in Key West and I would love to go back! BUT, now having kids, if I could go anywhere at anytime it would always be Disney! Oooooh, the pure joy in those little faces!! It truly is magical and I could tear up just thinking about it! haha

My Style: I actually had to ask someone what you would describe my style as. I’m always willing to step outside of the box and try something new.

My style: Eclectic. I prefer wearing skirts and dresses in the summer months due to the oppressive South Georgia heat, but I do enjoy rompers and shorts. I'm usually in bright colors, but occasionally I wear head-to-toe black. You'll almost always find me accessorized.
