When I found Meraki Apparel on Instagram, I was stoked.
Here’s the back story.
About a year ago (maybe? I really don’t remember when it was). My friend asked if she could come over and talk to me about something. We sat on my bed together as she explained her proposition. “I want to start a clothing company, Jos!” I was hesitant, but listened to her ideas. Since I’m passionate about clothing, I thought it could be a cool opportunity. We sat there for the next hour or so brainstorming of names that we could call the company… and suddenly- we found the PERFECT NAME. Meraki: This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe what happens when you leave a piece of yourself (your soul, creativity, or love) in your work. When you love doing something, anything, so much that you put something of yourself into it.
Uhmmmmmm… how perfect is that?!
Anyways… so we didn’t end up doing anything with this idea of ours (which is okay, because I’m not sure that’s for me) BUT I WAS SO EXCITED TO FIND MERAKI APPAREL ON INSTAGRAM. I immediately felt like I was a part of their family… haha super weird since I haven’t even told them this, yet! But I think it was meant to be 😉
So that’s that. This is 100% my favorite thing they have in their shop right now! It is the absolute CUTEST dress!! And so comfortable. Aaaand I feel like I could wear it during any season, which is a plus! Go buy this for yourself and thank me later 😉
