Right in the heart of Ludlow Kentucky is Leeta Ruth Boutique which just opened in 2016.
Created by a busy mom of two who wanted an outlet for her love of fashion and excitement for Ludlow's new business development... she envisioned the transformation and restoration of this of historic building into the boutique of her dreams and made it happen.
The name was inspired by two women in her family, proudly pictured on the mantle, Leeta Ruth features clothes and accessories for women - everything from casual to dressy - that are stylish and trendy but still approachable, comfortable and affordable. I actually found them to be MUCH more affordable than most boutiques I've been in.
But what I loved most about it is that the owner, Kim, is who runs the shop during their limited hours (which by the way are Tuesday and Friday 10-6, Saturday 10-4) and she's very good about styling outfits that work for your personality and lifestyle.
Since she personally does all the buying for the store, she will hear what you're looking for and know exactly what she has in store that would be a good fit. She also has an interesting eye for pairing girly with a little edge. For example, she paired a moto jacket with a casual dress and a dressy skirt that I would have never thought paired well, but they looked adorable together!
I also love that Kim supports other local small business owners like Lexington-based Southern Socks, Cincinnati-based Hank's Pockets and an amazing local designer Mallory who hand makes clothing from vintage fabrics. Oh and she has a great selection of distressed skinny jeans and leggings -- I wanted to buy the whole table. Tons of cozy sweaters, cute tops and great dresses - from casual to formal.
And they change their inventory weekly, if not even more frequently than that. So check back and check back often! You'll definitely leave there wanting something, if not everything! Learn more on Facebook.
