CHOOSE TIMELESS NOT TRENDY


by Taylor Gilkey June 09, 2017 0 Comments

IT'S REALLY EASY TO SIT AT YOUR DESK AND ADD 6 ITEMS TO YOUR SHOPPING CART ON REVOLVE.COM.  TRUST ME, IM GUILTY OF THIS AT TIMES. YOU'RE GUARANTEED TO FIT IN WITH INSTAGRAM CELEBRITIES AND HELL YOU MIGHT EVEN FOOL SOMEONE THAT YOU'VE JUST ATTENDED COACHELLA.   YOU'LL LOOK DAMN GOOD (OR HORRIBLE; IT'S DEBATABLE), HOWEVER THAT REVOLVE OUTFIT WILL QUICKLY GO OUT OF STYLE AND YOU WON'T BE LOOKING SO "LIT".  ITS NOW TIME TO REPLACE THAT BELL SLEEVED ROMPER WITH WHATEVER ROCKY BARNES WAS WEARING IN HER LATEST IG POST.  THIS SCENARIO IS WHAT WE CALL FAST FASHION AND ITS ON THE RISE THANKS TO SOCIAL MEDIA.

YOU MIGHT FIND YOURSELF BUYING FROM PLACES LIKE H&M AND OR ZARA AND WHY THE HELL WOULDN'T YOU?  BY WAY OF INSTAGRAM AND SNAPCHAT TAGGING, IT'S NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY NO TO A NEW PAIR OF CROPPED DENIM TROUSERS.  NOT TO MENTION THOSE TROUSERS ARE A MERE 2 CLICKS AND 1 DAY TIME IN TRANSIT AWAY FROM BEING ON YOUR DOORSTEP.  THE PROBLEM IS, THOSE SKINNY JEANS ARE GOING TO BE "SO LAST FALL" IN A MATTER OF WEEKS AND YOU'LL BE RIGHT BACK ON H&M.COM LOOKING FOR THE NEWEST AND LATEST AND GREATEST.  THIS OF COURSE MEANS YOU, SPENDING MAS MONEYS.

 



SO WHAT THE HECK DOES ANY OF THIS HAVE TO DO WITH GILKEY CO.?  A LOT.  WHEN DECIDING WHAT KIND OF LINE I WANTED TO CREATE I KNEW I WANTED TO DEVELOP SOMETHING THAT WAS TIMELESS.  I WANTED TO CREATE  SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD CARRY TO A BRUNO MARS CONCERT AT 28 YEARS OLD AND THEN LATER IN LIFE TO A BUNCO TOURNAMENT AT 80 YEARS OLD.  I'D LIKE TO THINK CHER WOULD HAVE CARRIED OUR BUCKET BAG IN 1975 AND THEN LATER TO THIS YEAR'S BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS.  

THERES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TRENDY ABOUT OUR BAGS AND I LOVE THAT.  I HOPE THOSE OF YOU THAT ARE BUYING OUR BAGS CONTINUE TO DO SO BUT THAT YOU WEAR THE CRAP OUT OF THEM.  I HOPE THAT YOU STYLE THEM WITH YOUR GRANDMOTHERS JUMPER FROM 1970.  I HOPE THAT YOU KEEP THE EVERYTHING BAG IN A HOPE CHEST FOR YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER'S COLLEGE  GRADUATION.  I HOPE YOU COLLECT SAND FROM THE BEACHES OF COSTA RICA IN YOUR GILKEY CO. BACKPACK.  CHOOSE TO BE TIMELESS AND UNIQUE.  AFTER ALL, YOU ARE ONE-OF-A-KIND.  BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN HIDE. 

X0- TAYLOR
