Hi friends! We are the Ragsdales. We are so happy you are here and cannot thank you enough for shopping Hello Darlin’ Boutique. We hope you love the website!
My name is Harlei Ragsdale. I am 25 years old and married to a high school football coach, living in a small Texas town with our 2 fur babies.
I wrote my first business plan in the 6th grade (hello Peaced Out Style LOL) and have always been a lover of fashion. From needing to be best dressed at all my tea parties to watching the E! Red Carpet before any major event - I always say it's in my blood.
I went to school at Tarleton State University and graduated with a degree in fashion studies. That is truly where my passion for fashion thrived. I studied in New York City twice - Paris, France once and even had the opportunity to work New York Fashion Week (talk about a total dream come true.)
In my last semester of senior year, I took a class where we had to write our own business plan. After weeks of research and tireless hours I did it, it was perfected. It was something I wanted to pursue right out of college but God had other plans, and I'm so glad he did because I learned so much within those few years.
When I met my now husband we did lots of back and fourth travel to each other while dating, when we fully moved together full time my husband non stop pushed me to finally go for my goal. This is something we have been dreaming and planning for over a year now.
Hello Darlin' Boutique in my dream come true and our first baby. It's a place I want women to come to feel beautiful, inspired and in community with other women. I can finally use my degree for my own dreams, and put all the things I learned in those 4 years to work. I hope you love it just as much as I do.
All glory to God for all the blessings he has given us in order to make this dream a reality.
