with Kristy FINE: Where did you grow up, go to school etc.? Kristy: I grew up right here in Naples, FL, where I was born and raised. I attended Seagate Elementary School, Pine Ridge Middle School, and Barron Collier High School. When I graduated High School I attended UCF and received a BSBA in Marketing.

FINE: What did you do after college?

How did you get your experience for owning your own children’s clothing store?

Kristy: When I graduated college, I was hired as a manager at Express near UCF where I managed 16 college students, mostly girls. My training wheels were off with that one! I was then offered a position as an Event Coordinator with a private company where I worked on Gala’s, Golf Tournaments, Festivals, etc., for non-profit organizations. I then received an offer to attend FIT in New York City for Fashion Merchandising so I packed my bags and headed to NYC. From there, I was recruited by Neiman Marcus to attend their buying program. I soon headed from NYC to Dallas where I lived for 3 years and was a buyer for their 38 stores across the country in their children’s department.

of Gigi’s Children’s boutique

Marcus to Naples so I decided to open my own Children’s store. I began the planning process in 2007, and Gigi’s Children’s Boutique officially opened in 2009.

FINE: What does Gigi’s offer compared to other stores? Kristy: Gigi’s Children’s Boutique offers the finest in fashion for all ages. Our niche is high fashion, high quality, all with a personal touch. Approximately 80% of our products are made in the USA and a majority of it is 100% cotton. I love our products and I love making my customers happy!

FINE: What types of items does Gigi’s carry? Kristy: We start with newborns and go up to size 8 in boys and size 16 in girls. We carry baby gifts, diaper bags, skin care accessories, customized items, jewelry, swim and apparel. Some of my favorite fashion lines are Splendid, Ella Moss, Haven Girl, Joe’s Jeans, 7 For All Mankind, Mayoral, and Kissy Kissy.

FINE: Do you have other stores? Kristy: Yes, I have one (1) other location at the Ocean Reef Club in

FINE: What do you love about Naples? Kristy: Naples is such a beautiful place to live.

Kristy: I decided to open my own Children’s Boutique when I was living in Dallas and working for Neiman Marcus. It was always a dream of mine to own my own store, but I loved my job and loved living in Dallas. When my husband and I started the discussion of having a family, I realized I wanted to be close to my parents and family in Naples. It was hard to transfer my job at Neiman

It offers that small town feel but it’s so much more than that. The people here are well traveled; there is culture here, great schools and great communities.

FINE: How do you balance family, owning your own business, and helping in the community?


Kristy:

That’s a great question! Some days I wonder how I made it through the day just like every Mom. I feel that we all have a purpose in life and I like to use my store and business as a platform to give back to the community. Every year I put together the “Back to School Fashion Show” event at Mercato where we partner with the Education Foundation and raise money for supplies to help support teachers and education in our community. I get local kids and teachers to participate; we hand out free identification kits and get the Sheriff’s office involved, along with Chick-fil-A and other after school programs. It’s a great event and always one of my favorite things we do all year! We also participate in a fashion show for the Golisano Children’s Hospital of SW Florida. This is Gigi’s 3rd year participating in the show and it’s such a great cause.

FINE:

What advice or encouragement do you have for women and moms reading this?

Kristy: I hope that I can inspire other Moms and women out there who are struggling trying to do it all and who are thinking about taking a risk to start their own business, going back to work, or switching jobs. There are definitely a lot of sacrifices that are made but there are great rewards at the end.

FINE:

Kristy: When we go out on a date, which is rare, we like going to the Turtle Club. We like to sit on the beach and watch the sunset there. It’s so relaxing and I feel like I can just breathe. FINE: What are some of your favorite restaurants here? Kristy: I love Bravo in Mercato. The staff and the service are always amazing, and the food is really good! I always love Campiello’s on 3rd, the Turtle Club and

FINE: What are some of your favorite charities? Kristy: Gigi’s supports the Golisano Children’s

Hospital of SW Florida, CMON, American Heart Association, the Shelter for Abused Women, Education Foundation of Collier County, and the Safe & Healthy Children’s Coalition of Collier County.

FINE: Favorite Salon? Kristy: Salon Bamboo, my hairdresser is the best! FINE: What are some great “Kid Friendly” locations or activities in town? Kristy: The best kid friendly restaurant in my opinion is Rib City! My kids love it there! We love to do family night there!

What is your ideal date night?

Rocky: One of my favorite places to go is Côte d’Azur. It’s a little French Country restaurant that I think is actually the very best restaurant in Naples. It is unassuming, but when you walk in you feel like you are right in the French Countryside. The place is dynamic; the food is incredible and very consistent. One of my other favorite places is Sea Salt. It has great food and a great atmosphere.

Instant Lessons with Mark Lye

Chipping Made Easier

Head-Hands-And-BALL Keep it Simple! If you really want to improve your scoring, it is mandatory that you have your chipping game in order. Even touring professionals miss an average 5 greens per round! They are forced to Up-and-Down it many times to recover strokes. Most amateurs will miss more greens than the average tour professional, so finding a simple method for this part of the game will help lower those scores. Here is a simple tip that will make you better around the greens.

First, assess the shot, then choose the club. Once the club is selected, the “set-up” is always the same (photo 1). I want to make sure that my “Head-Hands-And-Ball” are in a relatively straight line. It is VERY important to have all three elements in a line. The next photo (photo 2) is the “impact” position, which is almost exactly like the “set-up” position. The “bottom” of the chipping stroke is always directly in line with the head. So, to get consistent solid contact, you must keep your head directly over the ball. If your head is “Behind” the ball, the bottom of the chipping stroke will be behind the ball. And, if your head is “Ahead” of the ball the bottom of the chipping stroke will be past the ball.

The next element of successful chipping I believe is to keep your hands in line with the ball AND your head. I will drastically illustrate improper hand location by showing you what “hands ahead” looks like. What this position promotes is de-lofting the club, thus, not getting proper height on the shot. A lot of teachers teach “hands ahead”, and I will agree that this is not a “bad” way to do it, but the ball will definitely take off lower and have more spin causing a skid.

The other “improper” hand position would be to have the hands behind to ball at impact. This hand position almost always causes a “fat” shot, and is never a position or method anyone would teach. The ball when struck from this position will have more height than planned. This is a very common problem for amateurs that are trying to “lift” the ball, rather than letting the loft of the club get the ball into the air.

So, the next time you are working on your game, make sure that “Head-Hands-And-Ball” are in alignment. You will become more consistent with your chipping stroke, AND, your ball will react with more consistency when it’s rolling towards the cup. You may even look forward to missing a few greens! Good luck, and great golfing.

FINE Magazine 2012 Golf Club of the Year

The Old Collier Golf Club The Old Collier Golf Club is Fine Magazine’s 2012 Club of the Year! This Club delivers the ultimate golf experience, providing a sensation of a rich golfing tradition matched with the presence of perfection. I will take you through my experience from entering the hidden front gates to leaving with the emotion of not wanting the day to end! The Old Collier Club is focused solely on providing pure enjoyment of the game of golf to its members.


Located West of Highway 41 just North of Immokalee Road and across from Germain BMW, is a very private, inconspicuous entrance to the most impressive 267-acre natural preserve and Golf Club in this area. Tom Fazio designed the 18-hole championship course and the entire club is owned and operated by Collier Enterprises. The clubhouse and the golf course were completely hidden from the entrance. A typical passer by would never know this club was here in Naples. Once I entered the front gates, I felt transported into a different world, into a golfer’s dream.

Mark took me through the men’s locker room where I was given a locker for the day. The men’s locker room was very impressive and very large, with two separate locker room areas separated by a large family room in the middle with a fireplace, 3 plasma TV’s, large wooden tables, sofas, a coffee table, and a fully stocked bar. The middle part of the locker room was very impressive and gave me the feeling of being in a refined lodge. I was wondering when I should go into the pro shop, check in,

Naples Market The Naples market continues to exhibit strength as we move into a selling season that could be the best we’ve experienced since 2005. That’s a lot of intervening years where inventory piled up to dizzying heights, finally reaching a 3.5 year level against previous 12 month sales. Now all is changed as we’ve whittled away at those staggering numbers during the past two years as prices bumped along the bottom, refusing to decline any further as more Buyers entered the market. This Buyer trend is still on track, fueled by the addition of foreign Buyers who also realize this market could well start tipping the other way. Sage advice is to make your purchase early in season if you really want to take advantage of our current lower prices. We also suggest that if you don’t make your purchase soon, you just

may not find the property you’re looking for. Reason? Inventories have dropped below the one year level, and in some neighborhoods, below a six month level, which should lead to multiple offers and Sellers holding tighter to offer prices. This isn’t just a Realtor talking. Economists are pointing to the same trends in other parts of the country. But you can be assured Naples is leading the way.

Billie,

Now that we have completed the renovations on our lovely Vanderbilt Beach condo, I wanted to reach out to you and thank you for all your help and assistance in finding exactly what we wanted.  It was our good luck to find you through

Fine Magazine when we did!  Your responsiveness and attention were heads and shoulders above what any other agent had offered.  We really appreciate the time and effort you took to guide and focus us in our search and your patience in showing us so many potential properties.  Your expertise in the area and your assistance in negotiating and closing the deal made it all much easier than it might otherwise have been.  You really went the extra mile for us and we are delighted to have you as our realtor and a new friend in Naples.  We would unreservedly recommend you to any and all who are undertaking a property search in the area. 

Thanks again,

Linda and Victor Grijalva N e w
