Blue Suede Vintage was founded by me, Casey O'Rourke, when I made the move from Austin to my hometown of Memphis in 2017. In the process, I realized I needed to 1: clean out my closet and 2: continue to fuel my vintage obsession in a way that wouldn't completely take over my house and/or my life. Since Memphis is known for the King and as the home of the blues and birthplace of rock-n-roll... Blue Suede Vintage was an obvious choice.
I have a full time, big girl, 9-5 gig in marketing at a mom & baby brand based in Austin. I run this site solely on nights and weekends, simply because it's what I love. I do my best to answer emails and fulfill orders as quickly as possible, but for right now, it's just me doing all the photographing, listings, postings, etc etc etc! So your patience is always appreciated.
I'm supported by my wonderful husband, Jack, and cheered on by my baby daughter Emerson + 4 dogs (yes, four). If you ever want to talk animal rescue, why I heart Memphis, sustainability, or of course, all things vintage, please drop me a line!
