Carpe Chic: Empowering women


Springfield, Ill. (WCIA)

Laci Willis, owner of Carpe Chic and organizer of Women’s Empower Hour, joins us.

Here’s more from Laci Willis:

I am incredibly honest with what will fit and look right on my customers. If they grab something I know won’t work I cancel their order and reach out to them about why and get the right size. I am incredibly knowledgeable with sizing and fit.

I didn’t realize that so many women didn’t like going shopping so that was a big eye opener. A lot of women want help putting things together.

I also am known for building my customers up and encouraging them to try new things. I’ve had a lot of them reach out and thank me for giving them more confidence.

What I do isn’t necessarily different than what others do. When shopping with boutiques you just have to gravitate towards individuals you like, the styles they offer, and your budget.

I like to think we offer a really personalized approach, almost to a fault sometimes due to my honesty.

Women’s Empower Hour, we’re working with other business owners to bring a fun event to the area with guest speakers.
