Exploring Life & Business with Miesha Saxton of Mii Sacs

Today we’d like to introduce you to Miesha Saxton.

Hi Miesha, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I grew a passion for fashion in my younger years. The various fabrics and patterns amazed me! I was really interested in what other countries wore. As a young lady, I would cut out different fashion models in the magazines and make a collage and observe the different styles there were.

One day, I asked my mom for a sketchbook and started drawing up different outfits based on the magazine models. I loved it! Then I got scissors and started cutting up my clothes to make an outfit. However, my parents weren’t too thrilled but still supported my vision.

Even to this day, I’m looking to see what masterpieces I can make out of my old clothes. In school, I took a sewing class and learned the basics. I kept drawing throughout the years. I knew I wanted to do something in fashion and since I am not a pro at sewing yet I started a boutique, which is just the beginning of my success.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I put a lot and continue to put a lot into my business all the while working a full-time job, being a mom, making time for myself, and attending extracurricular activities.

I took a few losses, but it was expected. From finding vendors that had the products I wanted, to funding and to building my website; it was most definitely a rocky road.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
In school my last name was popular, it was made fun of, to say the least. My first name was never pronounced correctly. So, I wanted a unique name for my boutique but also something that ties to me. So, I took my name, Miesha “MeMe” Saxton (my-e-shu), and came up with Mii Sacs (Mee-Sacks).

My mission with my boutique is to provide different styles of apparel and accessories to women. All items were handpicked by me. I’ve always had an eye for fashion. I worked on the side as a fashion stylist. Whenever someone needed advice on a wardrobe I was the go-to.

I was never in the box with my fashion styles, I was different, I wore differently and sported them differently. What is fashion without style? At Mii Sacs, I want women to know you can wear what you please and feel good about yourself, no matter their shape, size, or condition.

Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
Born and raised in Kansas City, MO. I love how Kansas City comes together for city-wide events, Kansas City has been big on supporting small businesses and I love that.
