As a young girl I enamored with my great grandmother. She was a middle-class woman in her late sixties, and recently retired from a lifetime of working. Always clean and well groomed, she was never found without her lipstick on and hair set. Yet, she was a very simple woman, never taken by trendy movements of flashy fads.
Instead, she treasured the things that mattered the most: family, finding beauty in the everyday things, seeking peave in every moment and creating a legacy for her children's children, to the fourth generation after her.
She had a guest room upstairs that was immaculate: it had a cozy bed with fresh linens and fluffy pillows, a closet full of old formal gowns, and a dresser with a mirrored vanity tray from the 1940's - with the matching comb, brush and handheld mirror.
On the vanity tray was a small, gold plated glass perfume bottle - it was the roll-on kind with the fabric pad as the applicator.
My cousins and I would get the luxury of staying in that room when we were guests. We would spend hours in there, sitting at the vanity, holding the brush and mirror, applying the perfume to our wrists and pretending to be movie stars or royal ambassadors or “career girls”, as my great grandmother always told us to become.
We could become anything we wanted to in that room.
And we did…
And now, these forty years later, as I connect with the hearts of my customers, I realize that the spirit of my grandmother has transcended through the products - the spirit of Savvy Boheme:
Natural, simple, beautiful, free to be, smart, industrious, honoring the time.
The Savvy Bohemian knows:
Her Life is the Beautiful Era.
