My best friend Jessica and I have been friends since middle school. We ended up at different high schools and went to college at opposite ends of the state. Yet we maintained our friendship though late night texts and calls. When Eddie and I moved back to our hometown of Sacramento, CA this summer, it was the first time we had lived within 15 minutes of each other.
Jessica went to school for business and is a talented graphic designer and artist. I went to school for fashion merchandising and marketing. I knew I wanted to start my own brand someday, but I’m not a fashion designer. That’s when it clicked - Jessica could be our designer!
Our brand is called Stoked On Sunshine. It’s a lifestyle fashion brand for rad women. Our graphic tees are inspired by adventure and the outdoors. They are eco-friendly and we donate 5% of our net proceeds to non-profits that support women and the environment.
It feels amazing to know that we are doing something we are passionate about while also giving back to causes that are very meaningful to us.
