Back in the day (read: 2005), we launched Refinery29 because we wanted to find and share those special pieces and brands that we didn't know existed but always seemed to pop up at that really cool boutique down the block (you know the one). Our aim was simple: How can the right quality essentials help us to express our individuality...and make us happy?
