Hi, there! I’m Alexandra: born and raised in Westchester County, New York and currently living in Fairfield County, CT with my now Fiancé (yay!) Marc and rescue pup, Callie. Family is everything to me- my mother and father are high school sweethearts still madly in love and two of the greatest people on this planet, my brothers are my best friends and my Fiancé is my everything. I'm a homebody, foodie, lover of candles and spa days, a sometimes-minimalist, checklist obsessed and a huge fan of all music. I'm a sucker for reality TV, obsessed with Christmas, can never say no to chocolate or go a day without coffee. If I'm not home, I'm working in the corporate world in Greenwich, CT, Monday through Friday ( yes-, 9-5!).
I founded Polkadots & Posies because I've always loved gifting-- the thoughtfulness behind it, the act of giving and the gratitude that is expressed. Even when I was little, I knew that giving a gift made someone happy, no matter what it was. I learned at a young age that gifting shows appreciation. We give people gifts to show them that we are grateful for them and value the role they play in our lives. At the heart of love is the spirit of giving. A gift is something you can hold in your hand and say, "Look, he was thinking of me," or, "She remembered me." The gift itself is a symbol of a thought and an expression of love. So why not make that gift beautiful and useful! Full of hand picked goodies from small businesses, new brands and local artisans, P&P is here to bring your thoughtfulness to life through style and charm.
