Hey y’all, my name is Becca & I’m the owner of Lala Jean! I’m 24 years old and recently graduated from college at Georgia Southern University. It’s about 45 minutes from Savannah, GA. There, I majored in Fashion Merchandising and minored in Business and Marketing. I had an online boutique before, but closed it when I moved to Vegas in November of 2018. I wanted to focus on my new, fancy corporate job. After about 6 months working there, I realized that working a 9-5 Monday to Friday wasn’t for me. I loved the industry and meeting new people, but hated doing the same thing each day and being confined to an office for 8 hours a day just wasn’t me. Plus I REALLY missed the fashion industry. So, I quit my fancy corporate job and began handling my own social media clients. I really LOVE doing that and will continue to even with the boutique.
You may remember my boutique, Shop Becca. I closed it November of 2018 when I moved to Las Vegas (from South Georgia), but missed everything about the boutique world. Especially getting to meet all of my amazing customers and seeing how our pieces made women feel like their most confident self. Over the past couple months, I’ve been brainstorming, rebranding, and working hard on a new online boutique name, brand, and merchandise.
Lala Jean is for the woman who loves looking amazing, but loves being comfy 10x more. She’s a total girl boss, loves life, confident, and has fun in anything she does. The Lala Jean Babe knows that a girl boss isn’t just a woman who owns her own business, but a woman who is 110% happy with her life. She can be a business owner, nurse, lawyer, stay at mom, etc. She’s whatever the hell she wants to be.
I really want women to know that EVERYONE is a #girlboss.
Where Are You Located?
I moved to Las Vegas last November (2018) and love everything about the city. It’s definitely way different than the small town I grew up in. I love how close it is to a lot of cool places. Like Disneyland, Palm Springs, LA, San Diego, Arizona, Lake Tahoe, etc. It makes exploring the west coast a ton more fun. I was raised on the east coast, but I really think I love the west coast more. No humidity, gnats, or tornadoes. If you’re from the south, I’m sure you can relate when I saw those things are not fun!
What Is Your Style?
I definitely gravitate towards pieces that are comfy, but stylish at the same time. If I don’t feel 110% comfortable in it, I don’t buy it. I ask myself 2 questions, “would you marry this piece,” (aka do you REALLY love it” and “could you eat Cane’s in this and still feel like a million bucks?!” So, graphics tees are usually my go to. In the fall / winter, I love a good sweater or sweatshirt and jeans or graphic tee and cardigan. There’s literally SO many ways you can style a graphic tee.
