Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the Oiselle Flagship Store for a night of food, fun, and shopping. Sally Bergesen, the founder, CEO, and designer of their beloved Roga shorts (if you haven’t tried them you are missing out) gave a brief presentation on her personal story and how the company began, Flywheel made an appearance to talk about their company and their fun spinning and barre classes with super cool technology–they track your progress on your account online, how awesome is that?!–and then we #flystyle lovers got to shop, bond, and come face-to-face with the company and its apparel.
Oiselle is a #girlboss company; they not only make innovative clothing that is both functional and fashionable, but they also design clothing for all body types and shapes, and for the new runners, all the way to the pros. But the thing that I love more than their clothes (and it’s hard to beat those) is the women both involved in and obsessed with the company. Last night, I met some fun, empowering, inspiring people who are passionate about running and Oiselle (and also Seattle). They welcomed me in with open arms into their community of Birds–and even invited me on group runs with them, which I’ll definitely have to do! I am blown away by the welcoming nature of this crew, and can’t wait to do more with them!
And so, Oiselle Birds of Seattle, this Woman Crush Wednesday goes out to you. Thanks for the inspiration and laughs last night!
