Doe Deere is has created another business that is celebrating jewelry inspired by another age, the Victorian era. It all started one day when she unearthed some beautiful family heirlooms in the form of jewelry. The catalyst to start a vintage inspired jewelry line was Doe’s sister. She helped urge Doe to make her dream a reality.
The result was a high quality and beautiful brand called Poppy Angeloff. This is certainly not the first time Doe Deere created a business. She brings a history of entrepreneurship and creativity to each company she creates. That’s what makes Deere truly stand out from all her peers. There was one person that has celebrated her drive, strength, and journey to running a company, her husband Mark. They met when the both joined a rock band back in their New York City days.
Dinner at the parents’ house, which used to be our house. Can you tell? 😂 I’m kinda missing this banana leaf wallpaper, in fact I’m thinking of reprising it in our current house. Should we do it?? @ Los Angeles, California — in Los Angeles, CA https://t.co/mGLXqPfWl1

The successful entrepreneur is not shy when it comes to her love of color, even if they were unusual. Deep down, Doe figured there were other people, particularly girls who wanted to experiment with vibrant color schemes. Her first venture into entrepreneurship was going to be a DIY fashion line. Through the process she noticed there was no makeup to support her unique fashion line. This is now Lime Crime was born. By her side, her husband worked at Lime Crime as the president. The 10 year venture was a great way to inspire others to express their individuality through makeup. Now Doe’s vintage jewelry line Poppy Angeloff is starting to really take off.
Success was not always in the cards for Doe. When she was 17, her family moved to the United States. Her mother, sister, and Doe moved to New York City where they thought dreams came true. It was not all roses and butterflies for the trio. They had a rough go at it and they ended up homeless for over two years. They lived in homeless shelters, ate from food banks, and lived in some pretty rough neighborhoods. Luckily, it did not last forever. Doe and her family was able to work her way out of desperation to create a truly enchanting and successful life.
