Do people still read blogs? Is this thing on? *taps invisible mic*
I'm a thirty-something year old recovering New Yorker living in the woods with my man, my dog, and a desire to create a living for myself that feeds my creative spirit and my wallet (just being honest).
I used to spend my days in chic fashion showrooms selling clothes that cost 3 times my monthly rent to buyers decked out in Golden Goose sneaks, leather leggings and Valentino fringe purses. I worked for assholes, narcissists and ravers (again, in the name of honesty, I did had a lot of fun with said raver). After 10 years of scurrying around New York, counting every dollar and calorie, I realized I wanted more. I wanted to feel more peaceful. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to set my own rules and test my limits of accountability and productivity to myself and my partner.
In Common is a place where Elena and I can flex our style muscles in an inclusive, attainable, sustainable and cute as fuck way. In Common is more than just a store - it's a community of women for women. We donate to causes we believe in and our goal is for us all to feel a little more confident and inclined to skip on down the street each day.So hi! Welcome to In Common! May we service you?
*Disclaimer - I love New York. I love my friends and family there. I had more fun in the 10 years I lived there than I will ever admit to. I regret nothing and cherish everything.
