Casual boutique opens
Downtown Birmingham welcomed lifestyle boutique Steele Angel at 150 W. Maple Road, featuring a variety of clothing lines, distinct jewelry lines from artists, gift items and home accessories. “We are an athleisure store that carries a little bit of everything,” said co-owner Wendy van Alstyne, who recently moved to metro Detroit from Denver with her family. She and business partner Staci Egloss opened Steele Angel in Denver three years ago with the ethos, “The strength within us all to live with purpose, love and gratitude.” Women can find altheisure items from Beyond Yoga, Alo, Joah Brown athleisure, Spiritual Gangster and Sugarboo, among others to go from working out to dinner, top it off with a fake fur cubby and casual jewelry, and gift a friend with a candle or pillow. “People want quality, but curated. So, if they like my style, they’ll like the store. It’s where style meets an active lifestyle,” van Alstyne said. Business Matters for the Birmingham - Bloomfield area are reported by Lisa Brody.
