Meet Arianne, owner & buyer for The Calm x Collected:
Hello! My name is Arianne. I'm a wife, mother of three awesome kids, and owner of The Calm x Collected. My husband and I met as teenagers, later dated, married in August 2005. We had our first daughter, Olivia, in 2006, second daughter, Chloe, in 2010, and our son, River, in 2018! After making a big move from Virginia to New York State in 2013, I did a purge of storage items and clothing. Since most of the clothing was still in excellent condition I decided to try my hand at the (then) new idea of selling pre-owned clothing via Instagram. Surprised that I enjoyed the process more than I had anticipated, launching a boutique became a dream.
In 2020, we made a big move back to Virginia (we missed our city!) and to be near family. The concept for The Calm x Collected rose out of the pandemic in 2020 as most people were dealing with monumental anxiety and stress even more than usual, some worse than others. The concept and timing of the move seemed to offer the right opportunity to embark on the dream.
In these crazy times, we are all doing our best to survive. I hope that The Calm and Collected can become a refreshing source of comfort and joy for many as we grow. Feel free to follow me on Instagram-- @arianneken. I like to think of my Instagram as a family/behind the scenes timeline of highlights, circa 2012.
Feel free to drop me a line!
