We got to meet at intersection of where past meets present with Pass the Past.
We had the amazing pleasure of speaking with the owners of Pass the Past. We got to speak with them about their passions and what made them choose the life of vintage retail. Check out the Self Care Sounds Playlist and IG Live Interview Below!
What made you choose this selection of music?
For me self care is when I feel energized and confident. And I associate these particular sounds with those feelings.
What brings you joy?
Time with my family, traveling, a good meal, and great conversation.
What would you do to self care if you had no money?
- Sleep and sunbathe
If you could talk to your younger self what would you tell them?
Start trusting yourself sooner.
What is your favorite item that you are selling at the moment?
- Our Oacaxan embroidered dress collection.
What made you choose your profession? Do you enjoy it? If not, what would you rather be doing?
Haaaaaaaaa……….this is a sort of chicken egg question for me. I don’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t interested in fashion, but I also know that my mother had a huge influence in me developing that interest. I’ve tried to do other things but I have always come back to fashion. I wasn’t always happy with my exact role within the industry, but today I am proud of where I am and the clarity I have on where I stand in the vastness of the fashion industry. From a very young age I wanted to work for myself and to be able to do that (with all the ups & downs) means everything to me. I also feel a sense of responsibility to share what I’ve learned to help those who are interested to understand how their fashion choices can have both positive and negative impacts.
How do you stay sane in the sales industry?
- I remind myself pretty regularly that I work very hard and I don’t have to evaluate, diminish, or value myself based on someone else’s standards or opinions.
If you could be any animal what would it be and why?
I’d be a Guinea Turaco bird.
Birds usually know before any other creature when shit is going left with the planet and because the Guinea Turaco is beautiful and is easily cloaked in the wild.
What do you do to self care?
I travel, see live music, and consume cannabis in various ways/forms.
