Lily and Jessica started their Baltimore business, Worthy Threads purely out of a love of fashion. After much searching, they didn't find the clothing styles that they loved and wanted for their children so they teamed up to form their own business with big dreams. While many people questioned their lack of knowledge in the fashion industry, Lily and Jessica were two Stay-At-Home Mom's turned Work-At-Home mom entrepreneurs. Since launching in 2017, the girls have had their pieces worn on the cover of Parents Magazine, were chosen as Best of Baltimore and worn by many celebrity children. Now it's your chance to be a #tinystyleicon.

But, like, what does that even mean?
I built models of ships on the computer then used a program to simulate what would happen if there was an explosion. Navy ships have to withstand a certain amount of shock without breaking.
