I launched my business in May 2014 under the original name, I'm Not Your Type. It was founded on the idea that you don't have to look a certain way to feel a certain way. No matter if you're tall, short, skinny, curvy, Republican, Democratic, vegan, carnivorous, brown-eyed, blue-eyed, whatever-eyed... If you want to wear my designs, then we'll make it happen with no judgement and no hesitation. I wanted to build a brand that resonated with the girl next door, someone like me, who sometimes feels great about herself and other times can't find a single reason to wake up in the morning. Let's face it, whether we like it or not, we are constantly comparing ourselves to unrealistic standards. This is why so many of us paint this false self-portrait based on the lives of who we see on social media. I want to remind you that, that is not reality. I want to expose the lives of the everyday woman who finds joy in finding $2 in her coat pocket, and celebrates small victories like not losing any socks after doing her laundry. I want to provide a platform that encourages love and self-worth.

Charmaine Adrina is the product of an abundance of tears, coffee, and late nights. My heart is full knowing that I have been able to make this my full-time career. Thank you for being here and for supporting my journey.
