Bonus: the Same/Same necklace, which is blank on both sides and symbolizes connection.
Perhaps our favorite thing about this brand is it's unique, thoughtful and gorgeous packaging (which makes it the perfect gift)!
To learn more about our partners, sheisme co-founders, Amy and Lauren, read the interview below! This interview was originally published on StyleHunter.com
You know your friendship is strong when you create a company inspired by it! So how long have you been friends for?
Lauren: We have been friends for... jeez.. 11 years? Basically, as long as I have been working in the [fashion] industry.
Amy: Going strong for over a decade.
How did you meet?
L: We met working together at the Forever 21 corporate office. I was in Design and Amy was in color and trend development. I remember spying on her, thinking she had really cute style and wondering if she knew how cool I thought she was - slash - intimidated AF! We quickly realized we were brain twins, though. I would use any excuse to go into her office and we would talk about everything - fashion, boys, food... why we hated a particular shade of pink with the same malevolent passion... ya know. I even took a hungover nap under the lightbox on all her color swatches one time...
A: We were coworkers who quickly became work wives (everyone needs a work wife). We laughed at everything. I taught her Farsi, we hid together, worked late together, traveled together, binged on food together, created together. She made my life better. Still does!
What is the meaning behind sheisme?
L: sheisme is a literal word for "doing unto others as you would yourself" but in a ride or die/I got chu girl kinda way.
A: She is me, but we made it one word because we would like to see it used as an adjective. Meaning you care about someone and look out for them as much as you do yourself. It's living compassionately, kindly, softly, holding space. All that fun stuff.
What's the best part about your friendship?
L: For me, it's the amazement I have, when we hang out or work, that we really want to do the same thing sooooo consistently. Eating, to chilling, to shopping... Oh yeah, she is the only person on the PLANET that has the same shopping stamina as me. We can go for 9 hours straight! She is also incredibly caring, courteous, and a respectful friend. She is aware of my quirks and just... gets me. She is a super hard worker too, I think that is what made our friendship so strong in the beginning and also what drew us to start this business together.
A: Getting in our bubble. We really do have our own world... Sometimes we forget other people can see us. Also, we care deeply about each other and truly want what's best for each other. She-is-me.
