What inspired you to begin your entrepreneurial journey?
Some of my favorite childhood memories involve waking up early on Saturday's with my grandparents and going to Yard Sales in Santa Barbara, Ca. Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated with collecting clothing and objects that were once left behind. They carry so much history. I began to sell my personal collection of thrifted gems in College and slowly turned into my side job, business.
What was the first step you took to start it all?
I don't believe there was a first step, one day I downloaded Depop on my phone, the next day I started my second IG page where I began to post items. I constantly kept being phrased on the items I wore, so I thought it was time to just share the goods with others. Consistency has been the key factor to starting it all.
Tell us about a negative experience that has turned into a positive and helped you grow into who you are today.
I was once asked to vend at a Pop up Market. Being the person I am, I take everything very serious. I arrived 30 minutes on time. The person who was throwing the event didnt arrive until over an hour late. It really made me take a step back and see how we all go through different things in life that contribute to many things, But learning to communicate better is something that I got from it, as I would never want to be that person to others. I believe every opportunity that has been provided to me has allowed me to grow and to continue to understand how to communicate properly about my needs.
Share a quote from someone or somewhere that inspires your originality, to be you and not care what anyone thinks.
“I will have my serpent’s tongue - my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence.” by Gloria Anzaldua , Gloria Anzaldua was a feminist writer, who inspires my daily work she pushed boundaries through her work and I aim to do that through mine. To give a voice to not only clothing but those Who I chose to collaborate with.
Share your favorite song, artwork, movie, etc. that inspires you and how does it make you feel?
I dont think I can chose just one. I love Radiohead, beach house, and a lot of Spanish artists. They all make me feel like I am floating into another dimension. I love the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotlessmind. I relate a lot to Clementine and Joel and the way they view life. I also loved the soundtrack to it.
What is something that you want to learn more about?
I would love to learn more about editing programs, how to work with other artists. How to freelance style more, I love the opportunities that have been given to me and I want to continue on that journey. Its been a rocky and wild road and I know its only the beginning.
What are some of your self care rituals?
Coffee. Running. Writing. Shopping. I love to wake up really early like too early sometimes. I enjoy drinking coffee and listening to music. Its super therapeutic for me. I love to light candles, and write out ideas I have. I try to practice those routines daily because they bring me a sense of calmness.
What are your dreams and how do you want to achieve it?
I want to have my work published in magazines, I want to continue to work in this field and get opportunities to create. I want to continue to learn about this world, to style and to create communities of folks who are not always seen in main media outlets.
