HI! My name is Jackie,
Fashion and recycling have always been a passion of mine. When I was a little girl, I used to create Barbie clothing out of socks and I would design them with markers. The first word I learned to spell was 'clothes'. In elementary school, I created and recruited a club called The Earth Savers. During school events, we went around and picked up trash and recycled what we could. I always tried to recycle in my house growing up. As a teenager, I enjoyed thrift shopping with my mother, although it wasn’t cool to wear secondhand clothing, I rocked some cute outfits in school!
My senior year in high school, I took Fashion Design and Retail Marketing as an elective. Naturally, I wanted to make fashion my career. I attended FIDM in Los Angeles for fashion and The Art Institute of Dallas.
I took some time off from school and soon got married and had two beautiful boys to whom I dedicated myself to. I became a housewife and I loved it, but I always missed fashion. I struggled for about three years with postpartum anxiety and depression. I also began to lose all my hair and grew even more depressed. I hid from the world and felt like I lost all my beauty! That made chasing my dreams even harder. I thank God he held my hand through it all and it has shown me where my beauty and strength really come from - GOD and from the love of my family.
After moving to Florida in 2018 I started to feel better, and I fell in love with the nature Florida had to offer; the palms and beaches were really healing. That is why they are part of my brand now. I started to thrift again for myself and soon I began to sell on Postmark. I loved resale so much that I started my own online sustainable fashion boutique. Like many new small businesses, I began the process during Covid lockdowns and after some mentorship by Enterprising Latinas Inc., I am now a full-blown Latina-owned business!
