GeeGee is the name penned for my grandmother by my nieces and nephews. My mother is GaGa, so they needed to have a name for their great grandmother, and they chose GeeGee 🤎🤎 GeeGee is the best dresser I know, a true fashionista on a budget. So, when I got my first job after college, I wanted to look professional. I didn’t have a ton of money to buy designer clothes or bags, so I got myself a watch to show that I was mature enough to be a professional.
I decided on a Fossil stainless steel watch in a tin can. It cost about $125 dollars at the time, but I loved it so very much. I got a ton of complements, and my cousin was a huge fan. So, I got one for her too.
Years later, I read this quote from Kobe Bryant that resonated with me because it was speaking to my younger self. Kobe said, “Everyone looks at your watch and it represents who you are, your values and your personal style,” and this is so true.
Launching GeeGeeChic has given me the chance to give so many people that feeling I had so many years ago. I wanted to be taken seriously then, and I want you to be taken seriously now.
All the best to you,
