Get to know Jessika! My name is Jessika and I am the founder of Skirt Chaser Superette as well as the sole operator of our online and mobile boutique which specialize in vintage, vintage reconstruction and handmade items. My back story is much the same as any vintage lover, a longstanding interest in history and the people who lived it. Clothing can tell so much, not only about the person who wore the item, but also about the world that was going on around them at that time. I find the past lives of these items endlessly fascinating, always daydreaming about what all it's seen and experienced before it somehow made its way to me. I love speaking with the original owners and being privy to the memories attached to the pieces. I think it gives them piece of mind to know that their treasured garments are going to someone who will cherish and care for them as much as they always did. But really it's me that comes out on top by getting to hear all of their beautiful stories that they share with me and all of the memories that these pieces conjure up. This love of history paired with my background in the fashion industry, a bit of a wandering soul and some very severe entrepreneurial tendencies have brought me on this crazy journey and I couldn't be more grateful and excited to see where it leads!
This blog is an outlet for my never-ending stream of ideas and creative pursuits, both in business and in life. It's half photo diary and half documenting the fun times and crazy projects that so often fall to the wayside of everyday life. Thanks for swingin’ by and sharing in my journey!
