ABOUT THE OWNER //
I'm Chelsea. I live in Huntington Beach, California. For as long as I can remember, I've been drawn into the strange pull of this frivolous industry called fashion. I've worked in luxury retail, I've assisted a celebrity stylist, and I've managed the marketing for a fashion brand. But through exploring many facets of the industry- vintage clothing- with its beautiful craftsmanship, vibrant colors and textures, and the undeniable soul and character that remains with every piece- is what stole my heart from an early age.
Inspired by my love of the sea, beautiful blooms, and the vibrancy of Southern California living,
I source pieces that speak to a carefree, sunshine-fueled lifestyle while remaining relevant to trends within the fashion marketplace. I have three collections- an assortment of very rare pieces from the 60's and 70's for collectors and designers, a range of affordable styles from the 50's-90's, and a curated collection of recycled modern labels at a price point competitive with fast fashion giants.
Motivated by a love for the Earth and the people who live in it,
I've chosen to make vintage & recycled clothing affordable and accessible, to encourage people to consider alternatives to fast fashion.
I believe that small changes on the micro level can lead to big changes on the macro level.
