Heard the buzz? It’s all about The Shoe Hive — the little boutique with the big reputation. Since 2003, The Shoe Hive’s been the place where Washington’s serious shoppers find the “next big thing” in footwear — before it hits department store shelves. If you’re looking for updated classics from Bettye Muller, the latest look from Tory Burch or affordable flats by Sam Edelman, The Shoe Hive has them all. And now, you can get handbags, accessories, and jewelry too.

I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region's best shoe store in its first year. Eleven years later, I have tripled the store's size and branched out into accessories and jewelry too.
My kids, my husband and my Boston Terrier are my world, and I really never see a need to leave Alexandria.
