About BSV

Casey standing in Crosstown Concourse

Hi, my name is Casey O'Rourke. I founded Blue Suede Vintage 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 had my first baby in January 2022 and left my "regular 9-5" in August 2022 to pursue a more flexible career with my new lil family. My primary job is working as a freelance marketing consultant, and I'm continuing with BSV now as much as I can. This is still a one-woman show, and I'm figuring out this whole working mom thing so your patience is appreciated.

I'm supported by my wonderful husband, Jack, and cheered on by my baby daughter Emerson + 3 dogs. If you ever want to talk animal rescue, why I heart Memphis, sustainability, or of course, all things vintage, please drop me a line! 

If you or anyone you know ever needs marketing help of almost any kind, I'd be glad to chat through my consultancy, Wit & Wisdom.
