Yesterday's Love: Interview with Boutique Owner Erica Jenae

Today I want to introduce you all to a very special person to me. My cousin Erica Jenae. I have known her my whole life and we have always been into fashion. So it's no coincidence that we both own online clothing stores. I have always said if I ever had to pick one person in this world who I could trust with selecting items for my shoppe it would be Erica. She is a 25 year old college graduate who lives in Detroit, Michigan. She has designed clothing for fashion shows and is a true fashion addict. But, today we are here to talk about her store called Yesterday's Love. I always see the cutest items on the website but when she posted this blouse.. I could not resist. I immediately bought it.




Here I am with it on. The colors did it for me! Here is how I wore the blouse

Faux Leather Pleated Skirt (Forever 21), Suede Sling backs Sam Edelman, Chunky gold necklace (eBay)

I just want to put it out there that I LOOOOOVE this blouse, it arrived very quick and was reasonably priced. Even the packaging was uber cute!!

I wanted to give her some exposure regarding her store and give you all a little more insight about her... So what did I do? You got it I put together a few questions and gave her an interview.. check out it...



AT: What inspired you to start a store?
EJ: I've always wanted to own my own vintage boutique, until I can afford it, selling online is my best bet, plus online stores get more exposure


AT: Why did you name it Yesterday's Love?
EJ: I believe all Vintage apparel is precious, its a significant part of historic cultures. I consider vintage apparel a gift from the past/yesterday, I wanted the word incorporated in the name...one day it just hit me so that's how the name originated

AT: What is your fashion style?
EJ: My style is all over the place. I would consider my style a mixture of the 60' s (oh how I love the 60's) 70's, 80's, Moroccan, boho-chic, little rocker, hipster and anything that screams fabulousness

AT: What type of items do you offer?
EJ: Strictly vintage apparel and accessories

AT: How long have you loved fashion?
EJ: I've always had a thing for clothing, if u ask my mom she will tell you when I was a toddler I would come in anyone's home and strip my clothes off just to put some right back on......I have always loved changing my clothes

AT: What is the most interesting/favorite fashion piece you own?
EJ: I have a small suitcase full of silk scarves my grandmother gave to me......I will never give those up their priceless

AT: How long have you been running the store?
EJ: A little under a year

AT: What can we expect see from Yesterday's Love in the next year?
EJ: A lot more items and hopefully tutorials on how to alter your vintage finds and make them even more original

AT: What is the price range for your items?
EJ:  $6-$50

AT: What sets aside Yesterday's Love from other vintage stores?
EJ: I try to hand pick items I don't see a lot in other stores, and I think how the store is presented.

I mean, if you look at the girl's Instagram (EricaJenae) you can see her style is dope as hell.Here is just one look of many I absolutely adore...
