The Gold Dime was created in April 2015 as a platform for creating outfit inspiration and awareness about great beauty products. It has transformed into a portfolio of Shelby's work as well as continued to influence and inspire readers; Playlists that allow you to put a soundtrack to her work, beauty products that fill her daily routine, and the clothing & outfits she creates and curates for this wesbite.
Most wonder about the name, The Gold Dime. Originally, Shelby wanted to have a name that was symbolic to her hometown, Syracuse, as they are known for being 'the orange'. To jazz things up, 'orange' was replaced with 'gold'. For Shelby, dimes have always been her family's lucky charm. Showing up in the most obscene places, at the most ironic times, dimes have been a symbol of good luck, or some people know it as 'dimes from heaven'. To create an idiom as well as still have a name that resonated with Shelby, The Gold Dime was created.
