About Our Sponsor(s)

A gem of a women's apparel and accessories boutique, French Cuff Boutique embodies founder Kairy-tate Barkley's vision of providing a personal, convenient and stylish shopping experience in an intimate neighborhood setting. Opened in July 2008 at the crossroads of Houston's West University Place and Bellaire neighborhoods, French Cuff Boutique's clientele enjoy access to designer labels that are current and timeless; a chic and inviting decor; expert personal service; and an accessible location.

In September 2011, a second French Cuff Boutique opened where Houston's stylish Galleria and Memorial neighborhoods intersect, bringing the same vision and approach to another jewel box setting. Both boutiques offer a well-edited inventory that marries the latest trends with must-have timeless classics.
