interview: hannah caillier, owner of boutique dear hannah,


I love this corner of dear hannah,…

When I posted the picture to the left on Instagram and Facebook, everyone wanted to know where it was taken.

The answer: dear hannah, the newest boutique to hit shopping hot spot, Snider Plaza.

Reflecting an easy,  fun, trendy, west coast vibe, dear hannah, brings fast fashion and accessories at a reasonable price point. Just what shoppers want, right?!

Hannah Caillier, fashion industry veteran, ventured into the world of small business ownership by opening the first dear hannah, in 2012 in Hoboken, New Jersey. Yes, you read that right…Hoboken. East coast dwellers have really taken to the store and its west coast inspired style offerings. Now…it’s Dallas’ turn!

Enjoy my interview with Hannah where she dishes on how she came to open a boutique in Dallas, the brands dear hannah, carries and where she can be spotted around town.

Pop Goes the City: You opened the first dear hannah, in Hoboken, New Jersey. How did you come to select Dallas as the best city for a second dear hannah, location?

Hannah Caillier: I was stranded in a California airport trying to get home to the east coast on a snowy day in January.  I walked back into the airport and asked the ticket agent what city she could get me to.  She replied Dallas! I had surprisingly never been to Dallas and was up for the adventure! I spent 24 hours in Dallas brunching, shopping, and grabbing cocktails with a couple of friends. Before hopping on a flight home, I was grabbing lunch in Snider Plaza and fell in love with the neighborhood. I walked down the street and the realtor was hanging a FOR LEASE sign in what is now dear hannah, #2. I had the exact same feeling I did when I discovered the most perfect spot for dear hannah, #1 in Hoboken and wasted no time making it mine!

PGTC: What brands can Dallasites expect to find at dear hannah,?

HC: A couple of our favorite brands that Dallasites can expect to find are: Wanderlust, Paper Heart, Confetti, Beau + Arrow, and ElizabethRyan.

PGTC: You will be spending a lot of time in Dallas, finding staff and building up the store. What are your favorite places in Dallas to kick back and relax after a long day?

HC: It is so hard to pick favorites! I would say Nobu for sushi. Hotel ZaZa for martinis. The Rustic for a Sunday Funday. The Dram for a good dance party! The Petroleum Club for a dinner date, and The Bowen House for a low-key cocktail. Can you tell I love Dallas already?!

Hannah has clearly fallen in love with our city and already knows how to have a good there here.

I really like dear hannah, – it’s a super cute boutique and a wonderful addition to Snider Plaza!

Ready, set, go shop the dear hannah, Dallas location at 6713 Snider Plaza.
