You're Never Fully Dressed Without a . . . Pile of Kooky Costume Jewelry

You know. If "Annie" were about uniting a lovable orphan with the right bangle bracelets instead of with a billionaire dad. Who could, incidentally, buy her a gazillion bracelets, but I digress. On to my spiel . . . which will, hopefully, make you smile :)

Lots of women say that they have a passion for fashion, but for me, fashion is a way of life. Every day presents a new and exciting opportunity to curate another eye-catching outfit. If it's bold, colorful, embellished, retro, kawaii-inspired, or kitschy, then it's in my closet. I thrive on teaming unlikely patterns, colors, and pieces, on layering sundresses in the dead of winter, and on dressing cocktail dresses down for daytime. But it's accessories that capture my imagination. I have more shoes, purses, scarves and pieces of costume jewelry than any one women should, and gazing at my collection inspires me to put together my next great look.

Nine years ago, I took my obsession to the next level by painting tote bags and making jewelry. Someone asked me if I ever thought of selling on Etsy, so I checked it out and was instantly hooked! I crafted like crazy, having such a good time that I decided to start a blog, too. These days I create quirky mixed media necklaces and barrettes using felt, feathers, rhinestones, beads, unusual pendants, and even toys, anything that turns heads and makes people think, "Now, that's odd . . . and, you know, kind of charming." There's a certain rush that comes from making something from nothing, and knowing that that same something may make you (there it is again!) smile is the cherry on the kawaii candy sundae. I also love writing product listings and blog posts, infusing my write-ups with humor, pop culture references, and personal anecdotes to provide a fun shopping experience.

Trove, ahem, "treasures" are for dreamers, schemers, and anyone who never grew up. Running my business has given me the chance to design, craft, photograph and write -- all the creative things that I hold dear -- and I consider it my mission, nay, honor, to bring the fun and fantasy of the Tote Trove to you.
