The Spark

Laura Galanis

I am so excited to get this blog finally rolling. Most people get a good idea of my style by visiting the shop, but for those of you who can't, I'll be using this space to share what inspires me. I'm Laura, the Owner of Agnes Oh! I'm a mother of four who decided she needed more on her plate so why not start my own business? Taking the leap didn't require much thought for me. It has always been something I've wanted to do.  

When the time came to start up my shop, coming up with the name was easy. I planned on naming my store after my grandmother for a long time. The aesthetic of Agnes Oh! comes from everything I love and believe fashion should be.  

I don't believe in rules, if you want to mix brown and black, do it. If you want to mismatch prints, do it. Seriously, the only person who should be telling you what to wear is you. I really believe how we dress represents a piece of who we are.  

I love vintage fashion and accessories. It is probably 98% of what drove me to where I am today. There is absolute beauty in clothing design from the past. My personal style is a combination of vintage inspired and contemporary pieces. 

These are just a few of the main ideas that drive me. I am genuinely excited to do this everyday and can't wait to see what the future brings. I hope when you visit my shop or connect with me online, you can feel a little bit of the spark that I feel and translate that into your own look. Agnes Oh! is for everyone. We will continue to celebrate how fun fashion can be and how beautiful we all are.   

I would love to hear what inspires you!
