The Branded Belle was created with the idea of a boutique where every belle was able to come together and find clothing that would leave a mark on the world ... wherever she may go.
We have western + boho looks for those bold, fearless, world-shaking women who we call The Branded Belle's.

Welcome to The Branded Belle! I am super excited for you to be here and hope you love what I have picked out.
A little background... I was born in Arlington, Texas and ended up in San Jose, California in my early teens, and now live in good 'ol Lubbock, Texas. I am married to a super fun guy named Joe and we have three dogs and a horse![Oreo-our Border Collie Lab Mix 9 years old, Charlee-our rescued deaf full blood Australian Shepherd 1.5 years old, Chloe-our Black Sport Lab, 1.5 years old, & Bennett-our retired thoroughbred racehorse 11 years old]
Our life is full of fun and a little bit of crazy. As you can imagine the styles are very different in every place I have lived, thus my passion for finding that fun, unique, special piece that let you express your own roots was born. As a child, I rode competitively in the hunter-jumper circuit and fell head over heels for horses. You can often find me out at the barn with Bennett, training him to fly high over all the jumps. Being around so many equestrian women I learned that a classic conservative look is always a gorgeous option but for me, unless I am in the show ring... I want to have FUN with my clothes. Turquoise, Rustic, Unique, Boho, Western... many of the words that helped me come up with this idea for The Branded Belle, I want my clothes to make you feel empowered to leave a mark on the world. I hope they make you feel that way and let you lead a life you love!
