The Good Life: Shop Jackie and The West Events
Let Jackie do the shopping for you
Jackie, an online shopping service with a boutique in Bradenton, was one of the many businesses owned by Amber Duncan, one half of TBBW’s cover duo from September.
The process starts by applying to join the membership. When accepted, you will have your stylist work to curate a box for you for a $39.99 styling fee, which is recouped if you spend more than $100 on items in that box. You can choose to get one box, one monthly or quarterly.
The company loves to fill boxes with clothes from Good American, MISA, Stateside and more.
Prefer a more in-person experience? Jackie’s boutique, and headquarters, in Bradenton, doesn’t just serve as the home office. The 8,000-square-foot space is used for in-house styling appointments and monthly Jackie events. You can even rent the space for an event of your own. Items range in price from $35-$500-plus with an average cost of $150 a piece. shopjackie.com.
