Kim Tobin


My family is my life. I have two beautiful children – Tara and T.J. – a hardworking son-in-law – Ryan – a wonderful partner – Jay –and a sweet little dog – Brinkley. I have been in Louisville for eight years and grew up in Payneville, Kentucky with a full house – my mom, dad, seven sisters and four brothers. Yes that is correct, 11 siblings. Growing up, Mom made most of my clothes; I would get at least one new dress a year and always felt so pretty in it. Mom and several of my sisters are expert seamstresses – always fascinated by their talent and love seeing their finished products!

Fashion Heroes

Jacqueline “Jackie” Kennedy Onassis is my fashion hero. Her style was timeless, sophisticated and feminine. I am definitely a “girly girl,” so (I) love fashion that is classic with a little flirty twist.

Favorite Places to Shop

I love to shop at Blink Boutique in St. Matthews. The ladies at Blink are wonderful. They always make sure you leave Blink with clothing that makes you look your best. If you haven’t been to Blink, you should! Shoshanna and Chloe & Reese are two of my favorite designers. Their party dresses are fabulous!


My family is my passion. I love spending time with them and with the size of my family there is always someone willing to “hang out” with me! Love them ALL!
