A Little (Not So Little) Word From Atomic... September 29 2014 3 Comments
Ladies and gentlemen: I, Atomic BombChelle, Co-Conspirator and Creative Overlord of Trixie B. True, have quite my day job. I have fully transitioned into a caffeine fueled sparkle maniac and am so very excited to be working Trixie full time. You, whoever you are, may have been following Trixie from the sidelines, maybe circled the page a few times, liked us on Facebook, wondered where the hell all the product is, maybe developed a general sense of who we are…maybe not. Here’s a little real talk to invite you all in to really see what we are doing over here.
Trixie B. True has been a LONG time dream of our owner and mastermind Trayla Parx. The Trixie-Vibe has been growing and evolving, manifested in Trailer themed purses, dog accessories, giant bowler bags and a bin fondly referred to as the “reject pile”. While Trixie and Trayla have NEVER been short on creativity, it is TIME that has been the intangible asset that we are fiend-ing for. Both Trayla and I have been trying to run this full-time production in addition to our full-time jobs, and it is absolutely maddening. We are chomping at the bit to grow this company to it’s full potential and to offer the best selection of nostalgic glitter couture. In Short: This is why I’ve quite my day job, to try and give Trixie that last element of unrestricted time to work. We are here, balls out, guns blazing, playing offense, kicking ass, taking names. Thank you to everyone, and it really has been EVERYONE, that has been understanding of our varied turn-around on custom products---because seriously, we are up all hours trying to deliver the best, hand-crafted accessories for you (yes, you!). Now that I am here full time to manage our production, things will (hypothetically) be running more smoothly. Or we will implode from the ungodly amount of French-pressed coffee that we consume. Both possibilities are pretty exciting.
So enough about us, let’s hear about you! We would love to get to know the people that have been so supportive of us! You clearly suffered this tangent for some reason and we would love to know! Give us your spiel in the comments below! (Seriously, we’ll read ‘em!) Exclamation points!!!

We Love The Love! September 02 2014
Came across this little gem this evening: a blog post from the blog "The Adventures of Scout and Bear" reviewing a custom wallet that Trayla Parx had made in the early days! A delightful read and stunning review! These little tid bits are exciting as we grow! Let us know if you love your Trixie so we can give you a shout out! As you will see in the blog our items can be tailored to any interest, hobby, icon and obsession! Check out The Adventures of Scout and Bear !

Thank you, RollerCon! July 29 2014
Hello Trixie Fans! We are back to reality up here in Northern California and a long list of 'thank yous' are in order! We are overwhelmed by the love and support we received last week in Las Vegas at RollerCon! First of all thank you to all of our friends and teammates that stepped in to our booth to help with traffic and sales--we couldn't have done it without you! Secondly we would love to thank all of our new friends and customers that took home a Trixie product, chatted us up or even just walked by to see what we are about! We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we juggled our custom orders and hope that your new Trixie will continue to delight!
We had SUCH a blast and have left with a lot of inspiration for new designs! We have LOTS of new opportunities on the horizon and are thrilled to pieces about the future of Trixie which, again, isn't possible without all you beautiful people!
Keep your eyes on our site for new product and our custom order system! We will have swatches and color samples up so that we can continue to create unique and awesome things for you!
And now, the much awaited RollerCon induced coma:)
Vegas, Baby! July 03 2014 1 Comment
We are VERY excited to anounce that the Trixie crew will be hitting the road in just a few short weeks to fabulous Las Vegas! What has Trixie Vegas-bound?! We will be unrolling our all new designs at "RollerCon", this most highly anticipated Roller Derby event of the year (get the low-down on this awesome event here: http://rollercon.com/)! Our designers have expanded Trixie's style to not only deliver the finest in retro-nostagia but to strike a few chords in the hearts of some of the baddest women around: Derby Girls! The shocks and thrills of the derby track collide with some of our favorite vintage vices! Trixie is, afterall, skater owned and operated (check out more info on the gals running this show on Trixie's main website!) If you were a fan of Trixie B. True before, you are gonna love the new look on this brassy brand!
Trixie will be in Vegas with RollerCon at The Riviera from July 23rd through July 27th offering not only the newest designs but the opportunity for customers to personalize their items. If there's anything a derby gal can't resist it's the opportunity to throw her skate name and number onto her gear! We will be offering screen printed numbers and limited applique so that Trixie B. True will be true to you!
Check back for more as we release sneak peaks of new products!
We are so excited ! Vegas, Baby!
