How it Works
We believe feeling comfortable and confident affects how well you enjoy life's most important moments. Our personal style helps us to express ourselves, celebrate our differences, and ultimately empower us.
That’s what we’re here for. We want to get you styled for new experiences so that you are free to make the most out of your time.
The driving force behind our style selections are the small business owners and artisans who create the unique items we source. Partnering with eco-friendly, fair trade, socially responsible companies, you can travel in style knowing you're a part of this positive change.
Meet the Founder
Hi. I’m Chelsea. You know when all your stuff is laid out on the bed trying to figure out the perfect look for your exciting event? That is my happy place. It’s a canvas, made up of colors and textures I’ve spent my whole life amassing.
While serving with the Peace Corps in West Africa 6 years ago, I loved working with local tailors and vibrant fabric patterns to create unique styles and designs. I also loved the Peace Corps incentive to work with locals on improving and supporting their small business ventures.
Fast forward a few years, Gotcha Packed started when I noticed a trend with people in my life who love to travel - when it comes to packing, they totally hate it. They stress about what to wear, rarely have the time and energy, then end up throwing together flip flops and yoga pants.
This was a problem I knew I could solve, and I realized helping people get ready for life's biggest moments expanded past traveling. That's when Gotcha Packed was born.
