Amie Jo Bishop-Smith is a rock star through and through as an RN by day and lead singer for a Led Zep­pelin trib­ute band by night.

As a new­ly­wed to Tracy Smith, an APN for Arkansas Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal, Amie Jo en­joys mu­sic and cook­ing, and spend­ing time with the cou­ple’s four chil­dren, Rachel, Emma, Lily and Jonah. Her style, she said, is “com­fort fit­ting clothes that flat­ter and flow” but are still fun and trendy.

“I love the at­mos­phere of The Funky Mon­key Cloth­ier,” Amie Jo said. “The girls are al­ways so friendly and help­ful. The owner, Brid­gett Harn­den, splashed in her tal­ent of be­ing a mother and hav­ing to look fab­u­lous as well as com­fort­able while hav­ing lit­tle ones.

“She and Lise’ Huck­aby love to sug­gest items that may be out of my com­fort zone, but once I try them on I fall in love.”

Makeup and hair de­sign were pro­vided by Inge Rogers and Sarah Cooper of Plenty Mys­tic’s Hair and Makeup Em-

po­rium us­ing all nat­u­ral prod­ucts.

“We wanted to give Amie Jo those ‘Au­drey Hep­burn’ eyes, with a nice, thin liner,” Inge said. “We used prod­ucts from Bésame, which have been made by the same fam­ily since the 1920s and 30s with no chem­i­cals. We topped it off with a good, red lip that re­ally pops and nice, beachy curls.”

For Amie Jo, less is more, and this out­fit demon­strates that.

“This is my type of out­fit — pure com­fort pumped up a notch,” she said. “The fab­rics are so soft and light. A sim­ple, solid top, and a light and airy, one-color pant with a pop of color in the jew­elry and shoes made the out­fit pic­ture per­fect in my eyes!”

The Funky Mon­key car­ries the lat­est trends in cloth­ing, shoes and ac­ces­sories, and Brid­gett and Lise’ make it their pri­or­ity to cater to each in­di­vid­ual’s cloth­ing needs.

“There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one here,” Brid­gett said. “Whether you are shop­ping for ca­reer at­tire or for that per­fect out­fit for a fun night out on the town, we’ve got you cov­ered!”
