Hey guys, I'm Teah! I started STRESSED in the spring of 2017 after working in the vintage and retail industry for 8 years. In college, I studied anthropology and worked as a vintage and women's apparel buyer for Revival. I learned a LOT from a core group of super inspirational lady pals there who have been in the vintage game for a looong time. When I started going to market + on buying trips, I realized I'd rather be doing that than begging for grant money, so I said no to grad school and here we are.
I took away a lot of respect for true vintage and handmade goods. Their quality, evocative nature, uniqueness and environmental benefits make them so much more superior to fast fashion and mass markets. For me, no greater feeling than scanning a rack or a pile for a quality piece and bringing it back to life. I started selling online as a way to continue sourcing after moving to the west coast and it really just stuck.
At this point, I should clarify, I'm not reeeeally all that stressed! But pulling out those special pieces and putting together collections is my favorite creative outlet and sourcing is still my prime passion and my favorite way to pass the time. I'm stoked you're here, and I can't wait to share the next batch with you!
Thanks for shopping S T R E S S E D !
