About Us

Beverly Miller, Owner

I was born and raised in the San Francisco bay area, where my fashion sense was heavily influenced by my surroundings, including my immediate family. My mother took after Jackie Kennedy and the other fashion icons of the 60’s; my older sister loved chic silks, mini dresses and North Beach Leathers; my middle sister was the typical classy, preppy, cliché dresser.

Later, while working in the Couture departments of Nordstrom, I was exposed to a whole different genre of styles and honed my fashion eye even more while working with the various seasonal trends.

My most recent fashion experience – working retail in the consignment industry – has impacted not only my sense of style, but also my desire for deals.

With the opening of carpe diem, I’m focusing all of that industry experience into a high-end consignment shop that caters to stylish bargain-hunters … a revolving closet, where fashion-forward designs can be found at bargain-basement prices.

Come visit us in downtown Redmond today.
