Queen of My Heart Boutique is a Latina-owned, ecommerce business where parents can find unique handcrafted items: from my famous soft soled, sarape-accented booties to dresses, button ups, and accessories such as diaper bag wallets. Everything I make has a Chicano influence.
THE FUTURE IS LATINO
My mission is to empower children through the art of fashion. I want children to see their culture as something beautiful and unique and that there’s no shame in being Latino! There are so many brands out there that celebrate brown culture and that’s beautiful but they mostly focus on adult men and women.
Queen of My Heart Boutique is dedicated to changing it up a bit by focusing on Latino youth and creating a Brown and Proud community for the lil ones!
What I’m doing is taking the traditional and the vintage, and putting a modern twist to it.
I believe that we are all God’s beautiful creation. Doesn’t matter what color, gender, race you are- here at Queen of My Heart Boutique, all are welcome to celebrate and embrace my cultura.
Queen of My Heart Boutique is a shop where shoes, clothing, and accessories are proudly handmade

LA MUJER BEHIND IT ALL
My name is Dayanna Morales -I am a first generation Mexican-American girl born to immigrant parents from Queretaro, and Colima, MX. I was born and raised in the heart of Orange County, CA but in 2013, I moved to Northern California, more specifically, Hayward, to start life anew. I now reside in Castro Valley, CA and I am happily married to my best friend and have 2 beautiful children: Ysabel and Joaquin.
WHAT SPARKED THE IDEA FOR MY HANDMADE BUSINESS?
I’d actually never touched a sewing machine until my first Mother's Day in 2016 when my husband surprised me with one. He knew that I had been fascinated with sewing since I was very little so he thought that now that I had left the corporate world to care for our first born (at the time) full time, it was the perfect opportunity for me to pick up this new hobby!
Immediately after getting my machine I signed up for a sewing class and thought, “shoot, at this slow pace, and for the price of these classes I should just teach myself!”, and I did! I soon learned how to make baby bibs, skirts and very basic cotton booties which is what sparked the idea of selling online.
I tried to find a way to set my creations aside from my competition and it took over a year until I got the idea of creating apparel that represented my culture! That was when my greatest achievement yet, my sarape booties were created! It is a shoe I designed myself and has forever evolved… but it is the staple of my business.
Now that I have the opportunity of staying home with my two children I get to fulfill my passion of creating fun things for them and other children across the country.
My machine is my "me" time- my therapy when my crazy toddlers are acting well, like crazy toddlers and my therapy from all the cleaning and running around I do on a daily basis. I am so blessed and grateful that I am able to stay home with my babies while doing something creative that I absolutely love!
BENEFITS OF SOFT SOLED SHOES
Did you know soft soled shoes are good for a baby’s foot development? So, what are the benefits of soft soled booties?
With all the modern talk about arch support and padding, we have a tendency to assume that healthy shoes need to change the natural landscape of our feet. In fact, many shoes contain features that jeopardize the health of your baby’s feet by forcing them into unnatural postures and stances. Elevated heels, once thought to absorb the shock associated with walking, actually shift posture forward and create a perfect recipe for future knee pain. Toe springs—an extremely common feature that arcs the toes up and away from the ground—force muscles and bones to remain in a contracted and contorted position that can lead to problems down the line.
Arch support represents another danger to foot health, since children don’t begin to display this podiatric element until age 7. The biggest impediment to new walkers, however, is the abundance of padding added to many shoes. In order to develop a sense of balance, children’s feet must register the sensation of the ground beneath them. We all use our toes to grip the earth for stability, but children rely heavily on this natural inclination as they familiarize themselves with the strange new topography beneath them. Flat, both in the insole and outsole, soft sole shoes allow your child’s feet to grow and walk the natural way.
Soft Soled Shoes Are Roomy
As children’s feet grow, their bones are undergoing a long process of hardening and fusing that will determine their final structure. Due to their malleability, children’s feet are especially vulnerable to developing structural abnormalities that will follow them into later life. When shaped for aesthetics without a thought to foot growth, shoes can be too constricting for a growing foot, especially in the toe area. Tapered toes, for instance, squeeze the foot’s phalanges and the connected metatarsals, restricting the natural splaying that toes require to maintain proper posture and balance. Our soft soled shoes leave plenty of room for tiny toes to spread out, giving them all the space they need to grow strong and healthy.
When purchasing shoes for your infant, baby or toddler, remember to choose form as well as fashion. It’s fine to keep your favorite hard sole dress shoes for pictures, but when it comes to everyday wear, outfit your child in safe, gorgeously fashionable, and health-conscious soft soled bootie
