Meet The Owner

Justine Somero

Art fanatic/Clothing hoarder/Starbucks drinker/Lifted truck lover/Candy addict/All music genre listener/Glitter obsessed/Family and friends devotee/Construction worker

Hello I am Justine, many know me by my nickname Gi. I am the founder and proud owner of Justine Leigh. My reasoning for opening my own online store was to be able to have something of my own that I am able to express myself through my love of clothes. I have thought about it for years but never had the courage to actually get up and do it. Then one day I decided to throw my fears of failure to the side and take the risk. Taking that risk has been the best decision I have ever made! I love every part of this job from shopping for clothes for my store, to editing pictures for hours. I have sacrificed time, sleep, income, and stability for this business and I couldn't be happier in doing so.

A Little About Me

  • I started this business not for the money but for the enjoyment of it.
  • This is my very first business that I have opened on my own.
  • I run Justine Leigh by myself.🙋🏼
  • I hope to expand into a warehouse some day and have my company so big that I don't even know what to do. (I think it would be so fun)
