How to be a Bohemian Babe in a Modern World

How to be a Bohemian Babe in a Modern World

Some days we just want to run away to a more magical destination. Live in a boho chic teepee and dance the day away in a patch of sunshine. Or maybe we're just extremely jealous of Instagram photos from summer music festivals like Coachella. Either way, we're midwestern women with an extreme case of wanderlust...

Happy Boss's Day, Lauren!

Happy Boss's Day to Lauren Craig of Eccentrics Boutique

All of us at Eccentrics Boutique are honored to work for the best boss in the world...Lauren Craig! She's absolutely beautiful inside and out. And we wanted to share all the reasons why we love working for her. So here's all the reasons why we are thankful Lauren is our boss...


"Lauren is one of the strongest, most beautiful, and most incredible people I've ever met. Her desire for her business to thrive is so admirable, and her respect and care for her employees is so obvious and genuine, that anybody around can't help but notice it. I could never ask for a better person to work for. She has taught me so much, and I have become not only a better employee, but a better person because of her. I have grown to love her and her family, and I can't wait to see the many opportunities to come." - Abby


"Lauren is not only a woman of beautiful style, hair, and lipstick, but is a woman of the most beautiful heart. She cares for those around her with a selflessness and kindness that exceeds most. Her strength shines in the face of difficulty. You can rarely find her without a smile and a word of encouragement. She is also incredibly generous, with hands always willing to give to others. This is what makes her a not only a great boss, but also a truly great friend. Love you so much and am so thankful for you, Lauren!" - Jordan


"I haven't been working for Lauren long but I have never met a woman like her. I already feel like I am a part of the family she has created at Eccentrics. Lauren is never seen without a huge smile and "how are ya?" She is, without a doubt, one of the strongest and most beautiful people that I have met and I'm so blessed to call her my friend as well as my boss. The way she cares about each and every customer that walks through our doors is truly heartwarming. To know that I work at a place that Lauren has put her heart and soul into makes me so proud of her and the store. I have so much love for her giving heart. I can't wait to see how our relationship grows and I'm forever thankful that God placed us in each other's lives. I'm so blessed to know her. Love you, Lauren!" - Molly


"I started to get to know Lauren through our church community group about a year or so ago, and unexpectedly this past Spring, a job opportunity arose for me to work at her store. I was skeptical at first, being a stay at home mom for the past seven years, thinking that there is no way I'm going to find a job that is flexible enough for our family dynamic. I was wrong. Lauren has gone above and beyond to allow my job to be flexible for my schedule with my family. I'm so blessed that I get to be a full time mom but also work at a beautiful store with truly beautiful people. Before I took the job, I heard nothing but positive things about Lauren as a person and as a boss. She has met and far exceeded those words said about her. When I think of Lauren, some of the first words that come to mind are Strong, Beautiful, Kind, Fun, Energetic, Positive, and Compassionate. She treats everyone with respect and kindness. She doesn't show favoritism. As a boss, she is encouraging and not critical. She makes you feel at ease instead of on edge. She cares about her employees and her customers. She is a great business woman and I'm so glad I get to be a part of the Eccentrics family. I'm very thankful to have Lauren in my life. She is my boss but she is also my friend." - Alisha


"Over three years ago, Lauren hired me and gave me the opportunity to have my dream job. Every hour that I spend at Eccentrics Boutique is the highlight of my day. Lauren has built an incredible business from her own vision of making women feel confident. I have watched her inspire others to be their own kind of beautiful that goes beyond clothing and accessories. Lauren has a natural ability to create a family and lifelong friends out of customers and employees. She always has a smile on her face and a kind word to say. I'm proud to be a part of Eccentrics Boutique. Lauren is an inspiration and I am blessed to call her my boss, my friend, and my family. Happy Boss's Day, Lauren!" - Britni


"There is this gorgeous lady, that has a precious spirit, a heart of gold and wears bright pink lipstick. She is strong, she loves Jesus, her family and friends. God gave her a dream and she has worked hard to fulfill it. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote "Things are pretty, graceful, rich, elegant, handsome, but until they speak to the imagination, not yet beautiful." I am so glad she is caring, creative and had the imagination to make Eccentrics the store it is. People are naturally drawn to friendly people and she makes everyone that enters the boutique feel like they are special. Her contagious smile puts everyone at ease and she genuinely cares enough to help our customers find the perfect outfit. She cares about our community and is thankful for her blessings, so in return she gives back. Hebrews 13:16 "Do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifice God is pleased." What an excellent way to show people your appreciation. I am so blessed to call this amazing lady my friend and my boss. She cares about us and our families. Working at Eccentrics is beyond fun and very exciting. The Eccentrics Team are a tight knit group of ladies at different stages in life, with the same heart following a leader that exhibits grace and beauty and together we want all women to know they are beautiful. "It is not sufficient to see and to know the beauty of a work. We must feel and be affected by it." - Voltaire. I have heard so many people comment on the blessings they receive just by walking into the store. Her precious spirit and caring personality bless people. This lady that is such a blessing in so many lives is Lauren Craig." - Terra


Happy Boss's Day, Lauren! We love you!
