Mollie, Matthew, and Tess – three siblings, each with an eye for style and keen business sense – are the foundation of the family owned and operated Sophie Reese. Noticing a void of quality, branded, affordable jewelry stores, University of Michigan graduate Matthew Goldfarb (and current MBA graduate student at NYU Stern) envisioned a shop featuring women’s favorite brands, in a warm and inviting setting.
Mollie, an independent jewelry designer who spent the first few years of her career as VP of Branding for Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry (also a Michigan graduate), and Tess, (Syracuse University, and Columbia University Teacher’s College Graduate) are advocates of style; they see their own accessories and clothing as extensions of themselves and consider style to be integral to a person’s individuality. Tess’ understanding of current trends brings a young, realistic voice to the process, while Mollie’s extensive experience ensures a high quality environment that rivals some of the world’s finest boutiques.
The result of hard work and family collaboration is the fresh and distinctive Sophie Reese. Characterized by its emphasis on personalization and jewelry with significance, Sophie Reese strives to impart a satisfying shopping experience to the customer who is tired of snobby salespeople and department stores void of personality.
At Sophie Reese, we are continuously striving to provide our customers with the most relevant and unique inventory possible. Current brands include Alex & Ani, Alex Woo, Chan Luu, Crislu, Dana Rebecca, DoDo, Dogeared, Hipanema, India Hicks, Jane Basch, Kim & Zozi, Mollie Faith + Kwiat, Roni Blanshay, Sydney Evan, and Zoe Chicco.
Sophie Reese is currently located at the Walt Whitman Shops, with plans to expand in the near future. The organization also operates its other concept, Tess Morgan/Periwinkle Boutique, which carries customer favorites such as Alex & Ani, Brighton, Crislu, Free People, Pandora, Peace Love World, Swarovski, and Vera Bradley. We hope that the fun and familial bond that resides at the core of Sophie Reese and Tess Morgan/Periwinkle Boutique is visible in both our products and customer service, reminding each shopper that they are a valued member of our family!
