Jeannie is a Seattle-based singer-songwriter who cut her teeth as a busker at Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. She grew up in Bangkok, Thailand learning to sing in choirs and during long car ride sing-alongs with her mother and siblings. Jeannie plays a mixture of pop and r&b, armed with a rhythmic guitar style and a belting voice, which she cultivated while busking at Pike Place Market. Her original music tells stories of her life as a longtime immigrant and certified romantic. She believes that music is all about connection and community and is thrilled to be a Jamie Slye affiliate! Jamie's hats speak for themselves; they are high-quality products, and have added both confidence and flair to Jeannie's performance outfits. As someone said to Jeannie, "You look like a REAL singer-songwriter now!"
Shelley Boyer, Nags Head, NC
Shelley grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, but now calls the coast of North Carolina home. She owns an event floral design company and likes to express herself through fashion as well as flowers, sometimes coordinating her outfit with the floral color palette.
Shelley believes that statement accessories complete an outfit and sometimes make the outfit entirely. She is a chameleon and will try just about any style, but at heart is a jeans and t-shirt gal. "Add an eye-catching hat with a good pair of boots and you just leveled up your outfit. The funny thing about a hat is that you can choose to wear one to hide behind or to stand out, depending on your mood and the hat!" In her free time she loves to travel and always makes sure to pack one of her crushable felt Jamie Slye hats.
Mitzie McDonnell, Tennessee
"Hi there. I’m from Tennessee. At the age of 50, I decided to follow my dreams that I've had since I was a young girl. I became a realtor and a model and for the last 10 years I have been living my best life.
My husband and I, along with our golden, Cooper, live on the Tennessee River. We spend a lot of time outdoors, fishing, and hiking. I have a small head and I love the way my Jamie Slye hat fits and looks. I get so many compliments when wearing it."
