Founders Jillisa and Dana met playing Spades six years ago and it was friendship at first sight (birthing the inspiration behind the logo - a spade crowning the comma) As the years passed they have continued to support each others journey. With their love for and uncanny experience in fashion they felt it was only right to open a Boutique they could call their own. A way to bring elegance and grace into everyday life by providing affordable luxury to drape yourself in. JI’DAE aims to empower the world one piece of apparel at a time, by reminding you that, you can have anything you want, if you dress for it.
