Several months back I posted a blog about an amazing woman who created these fashionable headbands. She is a mom. She is rocking it in the business world. And you can check out the post here.
Today, I am showcasing another Mom Boss who is also killing it in the business world. Before I begin I want to elaborate that YES… my blog posts primarily cover 3 areas: photography, home design & decor, and Honeydew events. But I decided, when I can connect with what they are selling, I will be showcasing other mamas who also are running small businesses. I even created a new drop down link under photos where you can quickly find all of their stories. It is so important to encourage one another. Who doesn’t want reminded that they are loved & supported!? So today… today we meet Natalie.
Natalie sells Agnes & Dora.
Agnes & Dora is a clothing company. I must take a break already & admit that I never really looked into Agnes & Dora because I immediately thought it was a knock off of Lularoe. And I like Lularoe. I own Lularoe. But ladies… A&D is its own brand. They have some similarities – one being the leggings… another being the online/in home parties… but this post is looking past the leggings & moving onto the trendy tops & dresses this company offers and we can grab them from our friend Natalie!
I figured the best way for me to learn about Agnes & Dora would be to have an one on one girls night with Natalie herself. We talked products, we took photos, & I got to try on some of the pieces I liked. It reminded me of being in a small boutique. Many different options offered in solids and patterns. The fabric material feels comfortable & I love that most of the skirts & dresses have pockets!
From a photographers perspective, the line offers some affordable pieces that are practical for both senior or family sessions. They have so many selections that you will find a style that fits your personality.
Let me walk you through Agnes and Dora while Natalie answers some questions I have.
Me: What are your three favorite products?
Natalie: Esential tank, Swing Tunic, & Frill Sleeve Top
Let’s pair up an Essential Tank with a skirt & see what that looks like.
1. Midi Skirt & Essential Tank
Me: How did today’s experience & this shoot make you feel?
Natalie: I felt nervous at first, as I always am with anything like this. But within minutes I felt beautiful. I was having fun having my photo taken in these amazing clothes that I get to sell. I laughed and felt comfortable feeling beautiful doing something I’d normally be uneasy with.
Since the tank is one of Natalie’s all time favorites… we also decided to snap some shots pairing it with jeans for a casual look.

Me: Describe the Curie Dress in 3 words
Natalie: Classic, beautiful, flattering
3. Curie Dress
Me: I know I asked you to showcase a skirt and a dress, knowing that you felt uncomfortable in both… you completely rocked it though. Why so nervous to wear these pieces?
Natalie: I’m not normally a dress or skirt wearing kind of girl. So I felt out of my element I guess. And I’m not the most confident person, but having these photos taken gave me a bit more confidence. I can rock a skirt or dress and have fun doing it while feeling beautiful!
Me: That is exactly my reasoning for the outfits we chose. I see a beautiful woman, who doesn’t give herself enough grace. I see a business that is doing well, but could exceed your expectations. You totally believe in the product… you just needed to see that you can showcase all options.
Me: Why do you think someone should have an inhome party?
Natalie: EARNING FREE CLOTHES! Who doesn’t want that? How fun it can be to get your friends together & try clothes on! Agnes & Dora started with simply in home parties with women- to make them feel beautiful in clothes no matter what their size or shape!
I believe doing a party in your home where you can try on options, meet Natalie, and feel like you have your own style at present is the best place to start if you haven’t tried any of these products before. Once you know which styles you like, you can rock the online party & communicate with a Natalie to find your favorite styles, designs, and colors.
