What is the difference between Ali J Boutique and Pretties By Post?
Ali J Boutique is an in-store & online boutique that decided to start the program Pretties By Post. We figured out that many ladies love being styled, but simply do not have the time or don’t care to put outfits together to purchase. We have also noticed that most women don’t like the surprise factor that other monthly boxes entail- we let you see what we have picked for you!
Can you style me through my pregnancy?
At this time Pretties by Post does not carry maternity clothes to include in our monthly outfits. At Ali J Boutique we can definitely help you find some items that will flatter your beautiful bump and help you find clothes you can wear during pregnancy and post pregnacy, however we do not specifically carry maternity clothes.
Can I request certain pieces?
Of course you can, actually…. We’d love to know what our customers would like to see in the next month’s Outfit Collection release. Please email any requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
