About Me

Hey Girl! 

My name is Aliya, and I am just so glad you are here! I honestly can't believe I'm writing this and someone might actually read it (lol). Opening a boutique has been a HUGE dream of mine! And here we are, actually doing the dang thing! To be honest I didn't think I'd be opening an online boutique anytime soon. I am a recent college grad and newly married. My husband recently joined the military, and so we moved out of state, away from all family and friends and I started looking for a full time job - all of this was a huge shock to my system if I'm being totally honest. 

I applied for jobs on jobs on jobs. I waited for answers. I started praying for the Lord to open the perfect door. Anddddd nothing happened. For weeks. 

And then ding ding ding, if the door wasn't being opened to find a full time job, well then girl, I think I have an idea. I felt like the Lord was opening a door that I wasn't 100% confident about, but why not live a little and take a risk....and most importantly trust that the Lord will provide. And here we are! Opening an online boutique! My wonderful husband has been praying with me and supporting me through it all which I am so grateful for. 

My hope for YOU is that you can find clothes here that make you feel beautiful. I decided to name my boutique "Simply Chosen" based off of two things. First, I am choosing these specific pieces for you ladies to feel comfortable and confident. Second, the name is based off of the Bible verse 1 Peter 2:9,

"You are a CHOSEN people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light"

Thank you to all you gal pals for your support! I am so excited to see how this business can grow and impact others!
