Perfectly Posh Interview
The regular What to Wear post for high school senior photography tips is taking a little detour. I was out exploring bits and pieces of southern Illinois when I happened on a marvelous find. Nestled in a tiny strip mall just north of Highway 13 between Walmart and Illinois Centre Mall in Marion, Illinois sits one of southern Illinois’ hidden gems. Perfectly Posh Boutique & Gifts is a locally owned clothing and gift boutique catering to women and teens.
Owner Tresa Storto just opened in November 2012 and has rapidly gained notoriety and popularity. Tresa is a proven business woman who helped companies in human resources and construction grow and flourish. Tired of being behind the desk and behind the success of other companies, she decided to open her own business.
Tresa was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to sit down with me for an interview.
Q: Why did you want to open your own boutique?
A: There seemed to be a growing demand for fashionable clothing not offered at the “big box” or department stores.
Q: How would you describe Perfectly Posh?
A: Fashionable. That’s the actual definition of “posh.”
Q: How did you come up with the name?
A: I spent hours brainstorming. I knew I didn’t want the “Pretty Pink Boutique.” That’s just not me. I wanted something that was sleek, contemporary, and had a city feel to it.
Q: What trends are popular this season that you are carrying?
Q: What is your most popular item?
A: High-Waist Shorts
Q: If you could only wear one designer for the rest of your life, who would it be, and why?
A: I’m not hung up on names. My focus is on what looks good.
Q: What is the most exciting thing happening for your store right now?
A: We’re international! We just shipped to Switzerland!
My heart flutters every time I step through the doors. Along with all the amazing clothing I want to immerse myself in, Perfectly Posh sells jewelry, purses, shoes, hats, and gifts.
If you haven’t walked through the doors of this unique shop….Shame on you! J/K! But I highly suggest putting down your laptop and going there right now. Whether you are looking for an outfit to wear for a special occasion or for an everyday outing, Perfectly Posh is your go to boutique.

Oh….after the interview, I purchased that cute little one-shoulder dress on the right and the necklace too. L.O.V.E. it!
