Hello Friends and Happy Thankful Thursday

Last week I was thankful for the opportunity to have met the beautiful and “blessed with success” owner of Lai Renise Boutique, Nadira Alston.  Lai Renise Boutique is located on the 2nd floor of 11 West Main Street in Middletown.

Nadria and her family relocated from Philadelphia where she started and still operates a successful online boutique with clients from New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Delaware.   She moved to Delaware and on the 3rd of May opened Lai Renise which is partially named after her daughter.  

Lai Renise is a high end yet affordable shop for women looking for something special or a one of a kind outfit.  Nadira offers a personal shopping experience and hosts Trunk Shows in which family and friends gather for wonderful evening of shopping and styling.



Thrifting during Thanksgiving Break 040 Nadira had always dreamed of operating a brick and mortar shop and was blessed to have found this location which was previously a dance studio.  The mirrored walls were already in place so she just added the shelving to showcase the beautiful handbags and accessories with brands like Big Buddah Bags, Betsy Johnson, Vieta and Russ Jewelry.

Nadira also runs a full time Ministry and enjoys working with young women in empowerment and positive transformation.  On Saturday from 4:30 to 8:30 she is hosting “Daughter’s of Excellence Annual Dessert Cafe” a fellowship featuring an Open-Mic, Singing, Poetry and Storytelling at 14 West Main Street.  For more information please send an email to daughters@trclive.org.

In honor of #ShopSmall Saturday I treated myself to a Big Buddah Handbag – it was a tough decision but I purchased the black one.

      I got the Black Big Buddah Bag and have been carrying it ever since. I love it and may go back for it in Cognac. Happy Thursday. Thanksgiving was quiet, hubby’s mom passed away in August so it was the first without her… Hope you had a nice Turkey Day!

        Sorry for your family’s loss. Holidays make us happy for what we have and a little tender about what we don’t.

    I love your bag! As a dance teacher, I smiled at the fact that her shop now resides in a former studio, there are great vibes left over I’m sure from diva dancers;) Great post!

      Right….it was just so perfect for her and really “jazzes” up the boutique. Enjoy and be thankful this Thursday!

I love reading your comments!
