Welcome to the lives of the Gypsy mother and her hell raisin’ daughter (of whom the mama is STILL tryin’)!! We are the dynamic duo that make up the Southern Divas. We scour apparel markets and surf the internet to bring you the latest fashions! After years of shopping sprees and spoiling ourselves, we thought it best to start our own boutique and this is how Southern Divas Boutique came about. We KNOW all Southern Belles have a diva side. One that needs to be unleashed, blinged out and shown off!
Melinda Strain (The Mother): I’m a wife, a proud momma of 4 (5 if you count my Yorkie, Harley Divason), I’m a Nina to 2 beautiful g-babies, I’m a best friend and I’m a child of God. I’m a fashionista and I can’t sit still. My daughter and I have more projects going on than we know what to do with, but at the end of the day, I’m blessed more than I deserve. I owe it all to Him.
Fun Fact: I consider my 3lb Yorkie my “other daughter”
Favorite Quote: “Y'all need Jesus”
Favorite Item to Wear: Hand stamped bracelet that says “You is Kind, You is Smart, You IS important”.
Erika Zielinski (The Daughter): Well, while I’m only 23 years old, I like to think of myself as a big dreamer! I always push myself to work hard and live life to the fullest!
Fun Fact: I could sleep through a war.
