What makes an icon so iconic? Maybe it’s their style, innovation, or elegance.
Marilyn Monroe was an American singer, actress, and model in the 1940’s through the 50’s and still captivates and inspires women, stylists, aspiring performers, and artists to this day.
Audrey Hepburn was a British-born actress and humanitarian. She had a serious impact on the fashion industry for her classic style and grace. Like Marilyn, she’s inspired many works of art and may be “regarded by some to be the most naturally beautiful woman of all time.”
We admire these women for being such Statement Makers! And to honor them in our own way, we’ve created Marilyn and Audrey iconic art.
You can now design our always trendy tees, tanks, crops, dresses, and more with our most famous style icons. Be inspired to make every day anything but boring with a Marilyn iPhone case!
Get ready for you summer vaca plans with an Audrey tote bag. You’ll be reminded to smile and make the most of this summer because the happiest girls are the prettiest girls.

A little while back, we stumbled across Honestly Margo- a beauty business focusing on all-natural lip balms made from pure ingredients. We loved their mission and their honest approach to business! Then we found out Honestly Margo was started by Margo, a 13 year old girl with LOTS of motivation and passion.
She started Honestly Margo when she was just twelve years old. We were incredibly impressed by her story and HAD to make Margo a Statement Maker! Check out our interview with Margo below!
Tell us a little about yourself. Who is Margo?
Well I’m a 13 year old girl that likes to hang out with her friends and go to the movies. I have some great friends that are really supportive! I also LOVE to play soccer! Soccer is a big part in my life. I love fashion and being on Pinterest lol. I’m a normal girl that likes to have fun and hang out! I love 24 on fox!! MY FAV SHOW EVER!!!!!! I also really love beauty and taking care of myself. I guess this is me!
Honestly Margo is the lip balm company that I created when I was 12. When I was younger (younger than I am now) I would always try to make things and sell them to my friends and people I knew so when I thought of lip balm I knew it was perfect. I came up with my natural amazing formula and I sold them to my friends! They LOVVEED them so my mom suggested that we take it bigger and that is exactly what we did!
How did you come up with the idea? Why all natural lip balm?
I tried to sell everything when I was younger from cat collars to an online art shop. I have always loved beauty and taking care of myself so lip balm was perfect since it had no color and I could wear it everyday. I think things that are natural and healthy for us are good because there are so many things that are unhealthy that we use in our day to day life.
Is it difficult balancing school, extracurriculars, running your own business, and still finding time to be a 13 year old? How do you manage? And what keeps you motivated to do it all?
If you organize your time and designate when you will be doing what it’s not very hard. Sometimes I’m exhausted from sports or school but you have to get your work done. You also have to prioritize. I always make sure I have my homework done and then I do Honestly Margo work. If you don’t put work into it, nothing will come out of it. To accomplish your dream you have to be willing to work.
Honestly Margo seems to just keep growing and growing! How many stores carry your lip balms now?
Currently we are in 24 stores and 4 states and growing. You can get a full list for the stores I’m in at honestlymargo.com.
Where can we get some of your lip balms for ourselves?!
You can get my products in some stores in Oklahoma, Texas, New Jersey, and New York. BUT you can also get them at my website at honestlymargo.com.
What’s next for you? Will you expand Honestly Margo to include more beauty products?
Right now I don’t know what the future holds. Honestly Margo could expand or go into many other things. BUT I will be blogging VERRYYY soon so keep a look out for that!
You’re such an inspiration. What advice do you have for any other girls or women who are considering starting their own business?
Thank you soooo much!! I advise girls to take chances and to believe in yourself. If you put in the work and believe in yourself you can accomplish your goals!
Lastly, what is your favorite flavor? We think Fruity Colada sounds delicious!
Hmmmm…it’s a hard question because I love them all but my favorite has to be our new RUBY! I love the berry flavor and it’s so moisturizing like all the others!!

28 May 2014
Just this month we unveiled our Customized Girl Storefront Program and we already have over 200 storefronts! We couldn’t be more thrilled with all of our storefront owners’ designs and the work they put into it their stores!
To celebrate and honor the hard work of our storefront owners, we will be featuring one Customized Girl storefront owner a month in a blog post dedicated to them and their designs! This month’s featured storefront owner is The Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America!
“Since 1992, CADCA has demonstrated that when all sectors of a community come together —social change happens. CADCA is the premier membership organization representing those working to make their communities safe, healthy and drug-free. We have members in every U.S. state and territory and working in 18 countries around the world.”
The CADCA Storefront was created so that the organization can sell tees and accessories printed with their designs as a fundraising effort.
When you purchase a CADCA tee from their storefront, they earn a royalty from the sale. That royalty is going towards the organization’s efforts to create drug-free communities across the world.
Customized Girl Storefronts are an easy way to raise funds for any non-profit organization. There are absolutely no start-up costs to open a storefront, nor will you ever pay a fee to maintain your storefront. Simply design the tees, tanks, sweatshirts, and accessories you’d like to sell for your organization, promote your storefront to volunteers and supporters, and collect the royalty earnings to use for upcoming events or general fundraising needs.
A storefront with Customized Girl is especially useful to non-profits for several reasons:
-Customized Girl offers full color printing. We can print a variety of colors that are in your logo or design. CADCA is taking advantage of our full color printing with their beautiful, colorful designs. Screen printers charge extra for each color, so if you wanted to place orders of smaller batches with this many colors, it simply wouldn’t be economical feasible. But we use state-of-the-art, direct-to-garment digital printers. And we can make it happen! Full color and no minimums.
-In a Customized Girl Storefront you can sequence designs. That is, move specific designs to the top of your page for upcoming events like 5k’s or specific community events.
-Your designs are always there, unless you remove them. This makes it super easy to hide designs for those specific events after the event has ended and change information for the next year’s.
-You have total control over your designs. CADCA has saved their designs on each color shirt that they want members to choose from. It’s easy to keep on trend with your organization’s current themes or events.
-Customization. Maybe you are designing shirts for your organization’s upcoming 5k. Your volunteers and runners can quickly and easily customize a tee or tank or performance shirt from your storefront to add their name or a number.
-We offer a wide array of accessories too, not just shirts. Design and sell tote bags, water bottles, iPhone cases, aprons, and more for your non-profit organization!

Customized Girl gets quite a few orders from brides-to-be who have designed custom tanks and tees for their bachelorette party. We also get a lot of orders for customized running shirts for races. Our latest Label Rebel is a little bit of both!
Celeste customized racerback tank tops for her and her bachelorette party attendees. Celeste and her girls headed to Key West for a bachelorette party half marathon! Being a Label Rebel, she threw a bachelorette bash truly unique to her.
“I loved the tank tops! I got married on March 1st and that was our wedding logo. My bachelorette party was in Key West in January and we ran the annual Key West half marathon and 5K. It was fun since it was such a big group of us. I ran with a veil so everyone knew I was the bride. I also wore the tank on the morning of wedding for a run on the beach with my sis.”
