Synergism

Together, we are more than we are separately 

Aimee McQuilkin (she/her)

Founder of Betty’s Divine and co-founder 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, obituaries, studying maps, smelling things, lateral acceleration, nourishing people with food, smashing the patriarchy and exploring new paradigms as well as penetrating portals in her 1982 fj6o and 1983 Bunny are her passions. Current style inspirations are the village witch, Russian babushkas, Diana Spencer and baby clowns.

Ree Vanderkarr (they/them)

Ree is an artist, expert cat whisperer, and tree hugger. Growing up in Sandpoint, ID, they became all artsy and outdoorsy just like all the other lovely folks that inhabit that beautiful place. They moved to Missoula on a whim and couldn’t be happier with the many wonderful surprises that this city has brought into their life. Ree aspires to live a nomadic lifestyle in a van with her cat, Fable, living off her art as she travels daily. They love to take lazy walks by the river and explore the mountains in their free time, which is currently the main inspiration for their artwork. Ree can be seen around town crouching behind a dorky fantasy book at a coffee shop or frantically searching for the next vintage addition to their denim collection. They have a serious soft spot for 90’s grunge, funky socks, and that tie-dye jumpsuit they wear literally every day in the summertime.

Sam Burris (she/her)

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. 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 rarely trendy and can be best described as that of a bag. More than anything, she believes in the power of personal style !

Quinn McQuilkin (she/her)

 

Quinn is a born and raised Montanan with a passion for clothes, reading, and Thai food. She loves plants, is terrified of tsunamis, and drinks iced coffee year round. In her free time you can find her in yer local cafe, sipping on a rose matcha latte buried in a book, or dancing her butt off at the union. Her fashion sense can only be described as “Pinterest Hoe” and she has never once dressed appropriately for the weather.

Macy McQuilkin (she/her)

Macy has been living in Missoula Montana for her whole life and is now working her way through high school. Macy enjoys snowboarding at Snowbowl and is now learning to skateboard. She has a bit of an obsession with shopping (mostly thrifting) and finding fun, small pieces of jewelry. She also weirdly likes to pierce her own ears over going and getting it professionally done. Macy has no clue what to call her fashion sense but is constantly wearing fun pants paired with either a small top or a giant grandpa shirt. She also once wore the same pants as her high school janitor...Macy is a basement troll at Betty's Divine and Divine Trash Vintage. She is a vintage buyer/helper and will always go to the men's pant section in a thrift store first and will be occasionally seen at the store bringing up the trash club packages or stocking the vintage section with the newest treasures.

Teya Hassan (she/her)

 

Teya was lucky enough to be born and raised in our little town of Missoula. On any given day, you can find her getting an iced coffee, or seeing the latest Timmy Chalamet movie at the Roxy. She also enjoys a homemade cocktail, audiobooks, and cookiedough ice cream. Teya’s love for fashion started with secretly borrowing her old sister's clothes any chance she got. Ultimately, her style is influenced by any random person walking down the street, her sisters, and OF COURSE the queen Zoe Kravitz.

Martha Pundsack (she/her)

 

Midwest born, AZ schooled, NYC adulted. Lots of stops in between. If I’m not doin’ the Betty, I’m either learning to farm, talking about apples, talking to dogs, or thinking about puppets. Or waxing butts. Or brows. Or somehow working with/drinking wine. I like slow biking, pretending not to speak English, and cheese. 

Al J (they/them)

 

al lives in a moss-colored dream world which you might just intersect with on any street corner, alley way, house show, or liminal space in Missoula. They’ve been skating since they could walk & are a killer king on roller skates at the skate park. al can be caught dancing almost any time, or picking up all the magnificent moments just to write them down into poetry or prose. al lives their life in costume day-to-day as a way to realize internal dreams & share some magic. Their style is always a lot, yet simultaneously just enough. Their fingers are constantly adorned in silver rings, & each “alfit” is a new character with a name & a personality. Al is hopeful to inspire anyone who is coming age (or coming into themself at any age) to express themself genuinely & not take themselves or their attire too seriously.  

Beth Rademan (she/her)

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.
