How in the hell did I get here?
Clothes have always been a part of my life. Some of my earliest memories are of watching my mom at the sewing machine. My favorite mother-daughter times were the trips we took to the fabric store. I'd wander among the bolts, running my hands through the fabrics, cool and soft against my skin. I loved the tiny stitches, the perfect drape of a well-made garment.
With that kind of past, you might think I graduated high school and immediately went into fashion. Nope. I went the "smart" route. I got my degree in business and started selling the proverbial widgets. I made some money, which I know is the point of a job, but ugh, I hated it.
I was in the tail-end of the year before a milestone birthday when I finally realized I was living a life of fear, not joy. When I was younger, I always had this feeling that something great was about to happen. It had been ages since I felt that way. It was time for a change.
This is my journey. Only I get to steer the boat.
So, I quit my job. I did nothing for two glorious months, but then I started to get itchy. Did I have the balls to finally start the fashion career I'd always wanted?
Yes. Olive Gypsy was born.
Are you an Olive Gypsy girl?
The clothes we wear reflect who we are inside. Outside she goes to work every day, pays her bills, sits in traffic, buys groceries and toilet paper. Inside you? She's strutting her stuff down a boardwalk, strolling across a beach, climbing a mountain, shopping in Manhattan.
An Olive Gypsy girl is out there living her best life because she knows life is short. She's busy crossing things off her bucket list and following the advice of Van Morrison:
Smell the sea and feel the sky,
Let your soul and spirit fly.
When I see an outfit I love, I immediately begin imagining what I'll do in those clothes. And what I picture is always fun, adventure, travel.
I hand-selected every item in the Olive Gypsy catalog. Each piece is one I can imagine wearing out there living my best life. I hope you can, too.
