This former emo queen is making snarky home goods
The mid to late 2000s were magical years, especially for those of us who were in the prime of our emo phase.
Spending our days obsessing over AP magazine, the Warped tour lineup and Buzznet’s fashion babes was the standard. And we looked to MySpace emo scene queens when crafting our own colorful hairstyles and outfit choices.
They were the original crop of internet-famous babes to obsess over, and when I think back on that time, the ladies that instantly pop into my mind are Audrey Kitching, Hanna Beth and of course, Jac Vanek.

But since 2007, these women have moved on from the emo phase and dispersed into different areas of fashion.
Audrey went towards a Crystal bohemian goddess style, while Hanna Beth made the natural progression to rocker chic, and Jac Vanek’s style went full tilt towards Venice ethereal blonde.
Jac’s new style first caught people’s attention when her rubber bracelets that said things like “trainwreck” and “infinite” started appearing on all the wrists of the most popular punk pop singers. And before you know it, fangirls had jumped on the trend quicker than you can yell “MOSH!”
And just like that, Jac Vanek the brand was born.
And since then her brand has grown into a sassy clothing and accessories empire — and now she even has her own line of home goods.
