Hi! I’m Vanessa, and I’m so glad you found me.
I am a fashionista, a feminist and a teacher on a mission, and I want you to join me! I am passionate about empowering others through discovery of their own personal style and embracing their unique beauty, and doing so while taking care of our planet and empowering women across the globe.
I discovered my love of fashion when I was 7 years old and spent my free time shredding and hand painting old ballet tights into customized leggings.
(And, not to brag, but just so you’re solid on my credentials, just a year later, I was voted Best Dressed on my soccer team.)
I have been a social worker, an elementary school teacher, owned my own preschool and I also dabble in property management. You know, so I don’t get bored or anything.
After a year running an in-home and online boutique for a major direct sales fashion brand, I realized that I was ready to branch out on my own.
I started an independent boutique that focuses on fashion forward clothes that are fair trade, secondhand, made of sustainable materials, or made in the US.
Within less than a year, that boutique was a 6 figure business, and I had other women with the same big boutique dreams asking me for guidance.
