paper dolls ambler - display of ladies fashion rings

Our story...

begins with Missy, our lead curator and owner. Missy was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs, influenced by years of shop keeping in Center City and King of Prussia, and frequent buying excursions to the Big Apple. Since the early 90’s, she’s cultivated a career in women’s fashion holding various corporate management, buying and merchandising positions for companies like Macy’s, Barami, Nine West, Aldo Shoes, Victoria’s Secret, DSW and Talbots. Though her career promotions moved her to California and Las Vegas for a number of years, Missy’s passion to open her own business ultimately brought her home to Pennsylvania. Her mission is to inclusively and stylishly outfit women of most sizes XS to 3X with quality, on-trend apparel that is approachable, effortless and affordable.

Since opening the doors of Paper Dolls Ambler in the fall of 2019, our neighborhood boutique has expanded its size, location and e-commerce presence at an incredible pace. We have evolved into a relaxed gathering space back dropped with dressings, adornments, shoes, hard goods and good vibes. Our clients have become our friends. Our friends have become our clients. Their opinions, struggles and achievements matter to us.


We dolls share ideas and dreams, laugh and cry, and encourage one another all while making a living doing what we love … making women
