Owner of Betty’s Divine and co-owner of Divine Trash Vintage, Aimee has been a Missoulian since 1995. Fashion, per se, doesn’t interest her as much as costumes and playing dress up does, thanks to her Gramma and her bottomless trunk of garage-sale-procured play clothes. Old things, telling stories, studying maps, smelling things, dropping single track, eating food, reading, laughing and adventuring around in her fj6o are her passions. Current style inspirations are the village witch, Russian babushkas, and rock n roll Moms.
Miranda Hickox, manager of Betty’s and co-owner of Divine Trash. Miranda hails from Boston, Mass., and while she definitely has a distinct East-coastiness to her persona, she loves living in wild and lawless Montana. She fully admits to reading and re-reading Harry Potter to soothe her anxiety, that fried chicken is her achille’s heel, and that she might be the one person who doesn’t look good in black. She has a ridiculously over-stuffed closet in the home she shares with her husband and tiny dog. She’s currently obsessed with her InstantPot, fake fur, comically over-sized sweaters, and the fashion on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Marina is an artist, expert cat whisperer, and tree hugger. Growing up in Sandpoint, ID, she became all artsy and outdoorsy just like all the other lovely folks that inhabit that beautiful place. She moved to Missoula on a whim and couldn’t be happier with the many wonderful surprises that this city has brought into her life. She aspires to live a nomadic lifestyle in a van with her cat, Fable, living off her art as she travels daily. She loves to take lazy walks by the river and explore the mountains in her free time, which is currently the main inspiration for her artwork. She can be seen around town crouching behind a dorky fantasy book at a coffee shop or frantically searching for the next vintage addition to her denim collection. She has a serious soft spot for 90’s grunge, funky socks, and that tie-dye jumpsuit she wears literally every day in the summertime.
Daphne Sweet, was born and raised in Southern California, but is now a Missoula, Montana transplant. She spends most of her time painting in her milk carton of an apartment, or dancing and dj-ing in the evening. She’s inspired by the fashion of her Nana, who is a genuine vintage diva, and the color of her own paintings!
Sam fell out of her Mom in Oklahoma, clowned around Seattle for 10 years and is now pretending to hike in Missoula, Montana. She’s got her pard’ner, Joe, at home to help tame their beasts, Ollie and Milosch. She’s a vintage slayer by day and a theater artist/co-director for the Montana Book Festival by night. You don’t need to know much, but the highlights are: She hates chocolate, is allergic to grass, can’t drink champagne and only likes roses when they’re made of Shakespearean sonnets. Sam’s personal style is never trendy (tried and failed one too many times) and can be best described as that of a kooky, high school art teacher. More than anything, she believes in the power of personal style! She’ll never push you tooooo far, but maybe just far enough to talk you into that leopard print jumpsuit…you know you want it anyways!
Beth Rademan is the oh-so-talented seamstress for Betty’s! In addition to being a master of the sewing machine, she has also been a dental assistant for past 38 years. Beth learned to sew from her mom and in home ec classes (looks like someone was paying attention in school!). In 2008, Beth started her own mending business, “Mending Done Right.” In her spare time, she likes to make tee shirt quilts and donate them to International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, who her SO is a member of. And when she’s not mendin’ or cleanin’ teeth, you can find her visiting her lovely daughter in Spokane, or shopping at thrift stores!
