We had the good fortune of connecting with Micah Pegues and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Micah, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Fashion has always been apart of my life since I was a little girl. I watched my mother operate her boutique, select various trends per season, and educate young entrepreneurs in the field of fashion. I fell in love watching her design and create statement pieces, so I became her muse and assisted with photoshoots and attended various fashion weeks. This inspired me to utilize my business degree and start my own fashion boutique. Fashion makes me feel confident and comfortable because there isn’t a right or wrong answer when it comes to it. It is my way of expressing myself and stepping out of my shell. Let’s just say I picked up her torch and I’m running with it!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a influencer that’s passionate about fashion, beauty, and female entrepreneurship! I’m from Beaumont, Texas but circle the globe full-time showcasing fashion/beauty brands and providing business tips. My bold sense of fashion brings a fresh and positive perspective to the latest trends of clothing. My overall goal is to inspire women to explore the beauty of world. This in turn will help build women’s confidence that’s effortless and to see the light in what we wish to be.
Entrepreneurship is not easy, but the end goal is worth every bit. It takes a lot of sacrifice and discipline because it’s a job that never stops. One of the most important things I’ve learned thus far as an entrepreneur is to invest in yourself. There are several hats worn in this role, so it’s important to take some time to learn all the necessary skills.
My online Boutique is called The Diary Of Mi’Couture. My collection is geared toward the Jetsetter. A socialite that grabs the attention of everyone she embarks upon. Our garments will allow this remarkable well-dressed woman to
transition from day to night, no matter the occasion. Here in The Diary, we share our flare of fashion and style with our customers by providing them with chicly designs and styling tips. Our mission is to unlock your style and help every woman feel fierce and confident!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am such a shopper and my favorite place to shop is at the Houston Galleria!
Along with shopping, I am such foodie and I really love to brunch. My two favorite spots for Brunch are Bisou and Bosscat Kitchen & Libations. I also love Tiff Treats, they have the best cookies!
Since the beginning of the pandemic, I’ve gained a love for at home/outdoor workouts. Two of my favorite parks in Houston for workouts are Herman Park and Buffalo Bayou Park.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
For everything I have accomplished, I owe it all to God. I wouldn’t be where I am today if God hadn’t made my path any clearer. He constantly reminds me, that if I remain humble and seek positivity in every situation, he will handle the rest! I thank him in advance for the future blessings he will bring!
I want to thank my parents and brother for their unwavering and continuous motivation. They taught me how to face the challenges of life and to never give up on my dreams. To this day, they have been my biggest fans and they have done, and will continue to, do whatever it takes so that I reach my goals. Witnessing the hard work in everything they did, I know the definition of true grit and integrity.
Lastly, I would like to thank my family and friends for their overall support throughout my journey. You all have contributed to my vision in many ways and I will forever be grateful!
