Q&A with Monera Chic Boutique

I'm delighted to introduce you to the newest Fort Thomas boutique! I did a feature on Monera Chic Boutique for Fort Thomas Matters. You can read more about the store here. It's a charming shop complete with everything a woman needs - clothing, accessories and even some home accents. 

I caught up with Monica Bruns-Howard, one of the shop owners, to find out a little more about her favorite boutique items and what gifts will be big this holiday season. 

The boutique is named after owners Monica Bruns-Howard and Tera Huddleston. The original concept for Monera started as home-based business. Tera began making jewelry as a way to keep her mind off her colon cancer diagnosis and treatment. Monica had partnered with her to grow a collection of handcrafted jewelry pieces. Once Tera received a bill of clean health, the two decided to launch a true store and offer a wide variety of chic items.

Q. What Monera items would we find in your personal collection?

Monica: My favorite three Monera most have items are Bourbon and Bowetie bracelets. I never leave home without them! Also, a great Aryeh tunic looks amazing with leggings and boots. My last go to item in my closet is a Pique and Olive bling cadet hat...grab a great hat and your off and running!  

(I purchased two Bourbon and Bowetie bracelets and absolutely love them!)

Q. What will be a top gift this holiday season?

Monica: A top gift for this holiday season are boot cuffs. All ages wear boots and the cuffs add great style to any outfit. We carry a couple brands: Coco & Carmen and Grace & Lace. The price ranges from $12.95 to $22.00, which is a great gift for anyone on your list. 

My top pick for a gift idea under $25 is the Ginger Snap pendant necklace with snap! 

Interested in seeing more? Monera has plenty of eye candy - great products and beautiful displays!

My friend, Christy, modeled my favorite Monera top. I think emerald green is my new favorite color!

The Monera Chic Boutique is open Monday through Saturday (Monday, Thursday and Friday: 10 am - 6 pm; Tuesday and Wednesday: 10 am - 7 pm; Saturday: 10 am - 4 pm). Follow the boutique on Facebook to stay up-to-date with their newest products.
