Meet the Boutique

Hey y’all! I am Stella Martin and I am the owner of Rustic Vanity Boutique, an online women’s clothing and accessory store based out of Durham NC. My husband and I have known each other since middle school, but did not get married until reconnecting later in life. We have been married almost 16 years and are the parents of 3 affectionate pugs (1 girl and 2 boys) and 4 amazing children (3 girls and 1 boy). Although I guess they are not children any more considering 3 of the 4 are in their 20’s, lol! We currently live with our youngest daughter and my father. In my spare time, I love hanging out with family, snuggling with our pugs, binging on Netflix and Lifetime movies, cooking, going on walks, and being lazy by the pool.

At the height of the pandemic, my mother passed away and we made the decision to move into my childhood home to help my father. In addition, I (happily lol!) walked away from a 20+ year career in tax in order to homeschool our youngest daughter who has dilated cardiomyopathy. After two years of homeschooling, I decided I needed to do something in addition for myself and that is how RVB started!

My goal as a mother is to show my children that you can do anything in life that you commit to! My goal as the owner of RVB is to help you elevate your personal style with trendy, unique fashion! At RVB you will not only enjoy the highest quality, you will also enjoy affordable prices and excellent customer service! Thank you for taking time to learn about me, my family, and our business.

Happy shopping! XOXO RVB
