"In 2003, Lorinda Graham-Van Newkirk brought the concept of jeweled, cowhide flip-flops to reality in the Western retail market. Seemingly overnight, the once unseen combination was on the shelves of retailers around every corner and Gypsy Soule® flip-flops became the catalyst for an industry trend.
Gypsy Soule originated from Lorinda's parent company, Van Glow, which she founded shortly before the flip-flop line made its debut. Gypsy Soule® products can now be found online and in stores across the country, with a line that includes footwear, jewelry and clothing.
And now, Gypsy Soule® has welcomed long-time designer Amy Moorhouse to its team. Like Lorinda, Amy's passion for the western retail industry stems from real-life ranch experience. Amy comes from a Texas ranching family, and grew up on the legendary Pitchfork Ranch, where her father was the ranch manager for over 35 years.
Amy established her retail experience working for companies such as Smith Brothers, Cinch, Cruel Girl, Triple Creek, Vogt and the National Cowgirl Museum Hall of Fame, along with starting the original Gypsy Cowgirl® Brand. She has held positions as a brand manager, designer, market researcher and design consultant, among others.
Lorinda and Amy plan to build upon the core of Gypsy Soule — "products for women, designed by women." The collaboration began with friendship and a mutual work experience. Both bring various pieces of experience to the design table and plan to bring fresh, new items to the mainstream and western retail industry.
Much more than just a shoe or a piece of jewelry, Gypsy Soule® products express an emotion. To offer products that lead, rather than follow; define elements of personality; and make women feel good about themselves is the goal.
Come with us and unleash your SOULE."

Billy Ray Cyrus had this to say about this piece: "Oh my girls would love this stuff" And, they did!
I have been wanting a dog tag style necklace for the longest time. I have seen them featured in all the most popular fashion magazines and seen them being adorned by so many people (yes and celebrities too) and believe me when I say that this one from Gypsy Soule is just dreamy. It embodies all the elements I could have wished for, it's eye catching and bold, it's light-weight so it doesn't feel too heavy on your neck, it's has that "cool factor" that I look for. It is versatile in what you can wear it with, you can use it to enhance your most casual outfits like jeans and a teeshirt or you can easily pair it up with your cute little black dress! This necklace is extremely well made, a very fine quality in my opinion. I think this urban chic style necklace will make a terrific holiday gift, you get that sassy, sexy look at a price that will not break your wallet. This is the piece that so many girls are coveting and you can get it right at Gypsy Soule. And check out the two pictures to the right and left, I mean how neat is the fact that it is reversible! It's like having 2 necklaces in one, love it!
