“I don't personally call myself a style icon but I think my style is unique and tells a story. I've always received compliments on my personal style and
I feel that's what really encouraged me to have my own ladies shop,” she said.
Born and raised in Ocean Springs, she now resides in Biloxi with her husband, Roland Weeks. She has one daughter, Shelby, who lives in Los Angeles and owns a Fashion PR agency. “We often collaborate, attending markets together in New York City and Los Angeles to bring your favorite designers to the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” she says.
Although Grant's for Her is her fifirst shop to own, she always had a love for fashion and could be found working (and shopping) in a few of her favorite local boutiques.
“Growing up, I always loved fashion! When I was in school, I wore uniforms but enjoyed shopping with my mom in downtown Ocean Springs,”
she recalls. “Anytime we would shop, we wouldn't buy a lot but the pieces we did purchase were always nice, quality items. My mother started it and that remains the way I shop now.”
Weeks discusses her style inspirations. “There are many but a few that stand out are Jackie Kennedy, a true '60s inspiration with a feminine,
clean, sophisticated style. Mother/daughter duo Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn for their love of 1970s retro style with hippie inspiration that they both have carried into each new decade,” she says. “And
fifinally, Australian actress Nicole Kidman, who (like me) loves a blazer and has a classic style that is chic and effffortless but she can also own a
glamorous red carpet moment.”
Classic clothes are her favorite style, which she says is her common theme.
“My favorite go-to clothing item over the years has always been a blazer; they never go out of style,” she said. “Long maxi skirts and midi length skirts make a great alternative to denim. Plaids are always versatile and belts! I've always worn belts. Before my daughter could walk, I had belts on her too.”
