#GirlCrush: 5 Small Business Owners We're Loving This Month

We’re so stoked to bring you another edition of #GirlCrush! This month, we’re sharing some amazing founders from the fashion, jewelry, fragrance, and design spaces. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t already have some of their product in our shopping carts…

Ana Sofia Gomez, Sofia Los Angeles

Ana Sofia got her entrepreneurial start when her full-time employer filed for bankruptcy. Not wanting to leave the fashion industry, she decided to go it alone and launched Sofia Los Angeles—and now she’s got a cult following thanks to her 3D floral set.

Brooke Reynolds, Socialite Pink

After eight years as a commercial real estate attorney, Brooke Reynolds decided to leave it all behind to bring her dream of starting a jewelry company to life. Thus began Socialite Pink, a jewelry brand focused on making gorgeous hyper-functional jewelry, women encouraging women, and giving back to the community.

Carina Chaz, Dedcool

After struggling to find a vegan, cruelty-free scent that she loved, Carina created Dedcool, a uni-sex, non-toxic fragrance brand. Launched when Carina was just 22 years old, the brand is now in Urban Outfitters across the country.

Lauren Valenzuela, Sigfus

Named after Lauren’s Icelandic great-grandfather, Sigfus Jewelry began after she encountered a newfound obsession with polymer clay and started creating beautiful statement earrings. Oh, and Sigfus is a woman-owned and -operated company—holla!

Audrey De La Cruz, Annotated Audrey

Inspired by the desert surroundings in her home in Tucson, Audrey De La Cruz creates art, gifts, and accessories you’ll want to show off everywhere in your home. Plus, we’re pretty obsessed with her mission: “I strive to make art that people of all ages can enjoy because I firmly believe that art should be accessible.”
