Defying media biases and offering “real-life style advice for grown-ass women,” Wardrobe Oxygen founder Alison Gary is truly a breath of fresh air.
Offering “real-life style advice for grown-ass women,” Alison talks with refreshing honesty about age, weight, wardrobe and money. In her fearless social media posts she’s been known to shed her top to show the proper fit of a bra, wear outfits several times (oh my!) and appear in photos sans makeup, filters or Photoshop. It’s no wonder she has 17,500+ fans on Instagram. She certainly has all of us here at REALM in awe. (Appear without makeup? In photos? Online? At the age of 44? That’s brave in our book!)
At a time when so much of social media sets unrealistic standards, Alison Gary is truly a breath of fresh air. Her courage, strength and spirit also mirror qualities at the heart of REALM. This synergy is why I invited Alison to collaborate with us to share how she loves and lives in REALM.
The first thing I learned from Alison was how frustrating it can be for a plus-size woman to find a ring that fits. Standard stock sizes typically stop at size 8. So, as part of our collab, and to support and celebrate the diverse sizes of women, we’re offering one of Alison’s personal faves—our Insignia Empress Luxe Ring—in sizes up to 11 in all our Shades of REALM.
I had so much fun getting to know Alison. You’ll discover in our Q+A below why we love her spirit and style. Enjoy the interview!
Now that you’ve been wearing REALM Fine + Fashion Jewelry for a while what do you love about it?
"I love the message of REALM.
It fits how I feel as a woman, how I want those who read Wardrobe Oxygen to feel about themselves. We are beautiful, we are strong, we are Empresses."
Why collab with REALM?
I love the message of REALM, I think it fits with how I feel as a woman and how I want those who read Wardrobe Oxygen to feel about themselves. We are beautiful, we are strong, we are Empresses.
