I came up with the name Auden by combining my two oldest children’s names, Autumn and Braeden. A quick google search revealed the poet W.H. Auden and there it was, jumping off the page of the first poem I opened, “soul and body have no bounds.” It was that symbiotic moment between my children’s names and a brilliant poet’s prose where this clothing store first started to go from just a hope and dream of mine to a reality. Soul and body have no bounds. “That’s it! That’s the company slogan!” It was that aha moment, like when you find the perfect vintage leather pants to go with your favorite rocker t-shirt and Kashmir scarf. “Yes, it’s perfect!” That’s the moment we here at Auden Roads are determined to recreate for you over and over again. Far too often I see clothes that I love that are either too expensive or I’d need to have breast reduction surgery to fit into them. The defining mission of Auden Roads is to provide you with hip, high-quality clothing that fits and that you can afford. I am so excited to begin this journey with you! Stay tuned!
