With a knack for putting together a fashionable flat lay and a passion for her charming hometown, Meghan Marie Mackie is capturing the hearts of Winter Haven shoppers one Free People pair of loafers at a time. Meghan’s affinity for the fashion industry first took root during her college years. While she was attending Florida State University, she worked at a local boutique called Divas and Devils. Not only did that experience deepen her knowledge of the boutique lifestyle, but it also kindled a desire to immerse herself further into the industry.
Not longer after she graduated in 2009, Meghan returned home to pursue her own boutique business. Although downtown Winter Haven is not a shopping mecca by any means, Meghan knew it had big potential and an even bigger heart. She found her “in” into the market after noticing a gap in the local shopping economy. Winter Haven lacked an eclectic shopping experience with high-end, unique brands. And voila! m.marie boutique was born. By pulling from multiple fashion markets to create a collection of her favorite brands, Meghan's eye for a chic, boho style and the perfect pair of gold hoop earrings has brought a new type of shopping experience to downtown Winter Haven.
