“I like to find unique items for my clients, when you go into a boutique you are looking for specialized pieces,” commented McNeil. “Our boutique reflects all different styles you could expect to find in any closet, including clothes for formal, work, play and nightlife.”
Finding her love of fashion as a child in classic movies from the 1940‘s, McNeil enjoyed how the actors considered their style as an extension of their personality. Working twelve years in the real estate industry, she owned several business on the side that focused on sharing fashion with other women. Her business The Traveling Shoe Closet brought an extensive line of shoes and accessories to women at events as her other creation Girls Night In assembled women at local restaurants and businesses where Nikki shared the latest in fashion trends. With the decline of the housing market affecting the industry in which she worked, Nikki decided to leave the corporate world and start the business she had always dreamed of.
The Kloset Boutique offers clothing for women in sizes small to triple XL, shoes in sizes from six to eleven and a diverse selection of handbags and accessories. A favorite of her clients so far is the shoe wall that features unique women’s footwear from the ceiling to the floor. The boutique serves men as well with a large variety of shoes, handmade ties, cufflinks and other accessories.
