Meet The Team

This is Katie, the Owner of The CB​. She does a little bit of everything around the shop, but you can usually catch her pricing your clothing, or instagramming her favorite looks. When she isn't searching for her misplaced phone, or chatting away with clients, she is usually behind the scenes planning the next big thing, or choosing a charity to fund raise for!

This is Rylie! You can go to her for an honest opinion about literally anything, and she will always watch your dog when you want to try things on. She may love all things fashion and styling, but you should also ask her about her love for Christmas. It's real. Side note: she doesn't like wearing pants...and we admire that. Without Rylie on the team, The CB would miss out big time on sincere conversations and a seriously good time!
