Founder Brenna Egan is a former fashion editor and Vogue staffer who found her true entrepreneurial calling while meandering through flea markets, thrift shops and estate sales across the globe. On the days she's not shooting, styling or writing "past life" stories for the site, you'll catch her on set styling for someone else or hiking the canyons of LA in oversize cat-eye shades with her pup Brigitte Bardot in tow. Below are a few of her favorite things...
