Why did you start Where Two Find Me?
"This was born from our love of finding beautiful pieces from different parts of the globe. We wanted to share these little treasures with fellow explorers who crave adventure and solace under the sun."
How did you come up with the name?
"We wanted to evoke a sense of wanderlust, which essentially caters to those who want to escape city life, if only for a while, and soak in their favorite destination of choice.
When you hear the phrase 'you know where to find me,' there's always a sense of comfort and ease, almost like a special place. Sanctuary for us is being by the water, feeling the salty breeze, touching the sand with our toes, and we hope to elicit these emotions in the pieces we offer.
We replaced 'to' with 'two' in the phrase because this passion project is a partnership between two friends who have traveled together and spent time together, but have cultivated their own style and ideas. We have similarities and differences but agree on our love for the resort lifestyle."

Do you plan to carry swimwear as well in the future?
"It would be a natural course for us to get into swimwear but for now we are focused on our ready-to-wear resortwear."
What criteria do you have when picking brands to feature on your site?
"We want to showcase pieces that are beautiful, intricate and unique. Pieces that embrace the resort lifestyle—casual, easy, no fuss, relaxed, and feminine. Most importantly, we want to find pieces that can be worn everyday and not just when your on vacation."
Where do you normally source for these clothes?
"The pieces we carry are from two Italian brands—Antica Sartoria and I Caftani di Roby Zu. We also have a French brand that we are launching next season as well as Spanish footwear—all the pieces have resort themes that can be worn not only for travel but for city life as well."

What are your favorite pieces on the website and why do you like them?
"I prefer the loud, colorful ones and my partner, Marielle likes the more subdued colors and classic silhouettes."
What kind of woman do you picture wearing your clothes?
"The WTFM woman has this aura of easiness, she is confident, she loves life and creates her own style. Resortwear is not just about coverups and swimsuits, the collection we put together is a mix of tops and dresses that can easily be worn in the city as well as on your next vacation. These are easy pieces that are forgiving to all sizes and can be kept casual or dressed up with the right accessories. Each of the pieces is made of high quality materials that's perfect for a tropical country like ours."
