Our brand originated from the beautiful surroundings of Key West. We’ve played, lived and fished in this area on and off for the past decade….and have been impressed with the good nature of the people, the thriving art and creative communities, the water…and all that comes with that gorgeous, endless playground, and the vibrant colors…particularly as the sun sets in the west.
When we are here, in the sun…in this gorgeous slice of the world, we change. Our focus is on Living Life…our life…not what someone else expects or wants us to be. That there is a moment when, deep in your soul you realize…I owe it to myself to do something remarkable with my life….to make a difference.
That sentiment is reflected in the collections we’ve created. We start with building our color palettes and branch from there. With swim wear that plays great on the sand bars of Key West or in your pool, with clothing that you can play in, slide into the evening in, dress it up a little or down into that comfortable shirt.
Sooo…who are we…a group of people that give a damn, are passionate, demand quality in all aspects of our business, are engaged in life…and…in some small way…want to motivate you to look at how you live your life and to feel good in our brand.
Engage with us. It’s a journey…and a beautiful one.

EllaCustomer Service Specialist
Ella is our official mascot and customer greeter at our store. She’s a little heavy on the licks, naps too much…we had to write her up for sleeping on the job. However, everyone that’s met her falls in love, so I guess we’ll keep her around. She is a Golden Retriever pup we are raising, and will be trained as a therapy dog. In the meantime...she is working at our Georgetown, DC store!
