Be Courageous

Celebrating Denise’s birthday, we’re releasing one of her favorites from our forthcoming Fall 2015 collection—the Be Courageous tee.

This shirt was designed by Denise and Sam, Emma, Matt and Olivia. Matt wrote the words and, as he revealed at Denise’s funeral reception on Friday, it was written about Denise, like pretty much all copy and words we wrote for The Good Ones and Matilda Jane over the years—Denise, who “lit fireworks in our souls,” who “smiles with pride, acts with heart and lives with soul,” who “is here to shine,” who owned that “the best lesson ever is that it’s perfectly great when we’re proud to be exactly who we are” and “because the entire world is overflowing with soul, and she’s at the center” and on and on and on.

The same is true with “Heart like a lion, soul like a star.” 100% pure Denise DeMarchis.

All proceeds from the sale of this shirt will support Mighty Acorn Foundation.

Be courageous.

– The team at TGO

Heavy Hearts, Strong Hearts


Our founder and leader Denise DeMarchis passed away this morning, June 23, 2015.

This day has been the year’s most beautiful day in Fort Wayne, and in particular our little neck of the woods, Bricktown.

We can feel Denise looking down on us, warming our hearts like the sun, inspiring us with her beauty and her brilliance.

This inspiration has fueled each and every one of us since the moment we met Denise.

While absolutely overcome with sadness, we know that Denise’s wish for us is that we all stand tall, with confidence, and lead generous, creative lives. Denise’s unwavering and contagious spirit will guide us for the rest of our days.

As you remember the way Denise touched your own life, we invite you to join us.

Denise DeMarchis changed the world for the better, and in such a short time. She wasn’t done. Together, and each in our own way, we can help finish her work.

Jennifer Fox - I know this simply lovely tribute will be just one of many to come. I imagine The Good Ones will continue to celebrate Denise long in to the future with love, laughter and so much creativity. She will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

June 23, 2015 - 11:16 pm

Shari - We LoVE you all ((hugs))

abby - So lucky to have met Denise & Sam even if it was for a short few. Following the blogs & facebook you felt like you knew her even if you didn’t…and meeting her was like she was someone you’d known for years…even the first time. She will be forever missed, but her spirit and love will continue on through all good things… oh and of course the twirling.

And the winner is…

Hello again! I’m here to announce the winners of the karaoke song contest! We haven’t sang all of your great requests just yet but definitely plan to. It’s tough to break out new material when your go-to tunes are by Celine Dion, Madonna and Tina Turner… you’ll have to guess which TGO gal sings which.

So without further ado, I give you the winners!

Please contact me at with your child’s size and shipping address and I’ll send your prizes!


Thanks again for all your great song recommendations and keep rockin’!



You May or May Not Have Heard of Me

I would like to start by saying that TGO fans are theeee nicest and coolest people and say thank you for supporting the brand that I love with all my heart.

 Hi, I’m Olivia. I have worked for TGO since September 2013 on everything from pop-up shops to packing orders, customer service to photoshoots and trade shows to social media. If you’ve placed an order in the last couple of years, there’s a good chance I’ve written you a mushy note about how much I love you and TGO. Oh gosh, how embarrassing.

I’m going to do a little giveaway at the bottom of this post but first I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself. – Feel free to just scroll on down.:)

I live in a cute little house with my fella Derek, our son Arlo and our pup Bowie T. Stardust. Derek is the guitar player in a popular psychedelic rock band so our home is littered with music equipment. It’s prop heaven for any TGO shoot and there is at least one guitar pick in every load of laundry. Arlo is almost four months old and is already a rambunctious little guy. Arlo loves music (especially The Ramones and Harry Belafonte) and looooooves his puppy Bowie. I am so excited to see my boy grow up with the positive messaging and music of TGO and The Final Hurrahs…and for all the family photos in his Good Ones goodies.

I’ve had a fun and weird life so far and have had opportunities to do lots of crazy things. Here are a few highlights… I’m a former professional figure skater. I’ve been so lucky to have skated (and lived) in places like Vegas and Istanbul with people from around the world. My dad and I made it to master black belt and ran a martial arts school together… no I’m not making this up.

My mom and I started a company called OFabz in 2012 making retro swimwear and selling it to cute little boutiques across the country. Neither of us can turn our brains off so we have kept on designing as a fun side project and creative outlet for our love of ruffles and polka dots.

I love my job at TGO and my coworkers more than I can even admit. Sometimes we miss each other on the weekends so much that we meet up for dancing and karaoke. I love iced tea and might be addicted to coke zero. I live two miles away from Bricktown and get to ride my bike to work. I love The Supremes, James Brown, Tina Turner and Father John Misty. I feel most at home on a stage. I believe weekends are for donuts, kickball and making things. I love The Good Ones with all my heart and am so glad to know you all.

xoxo Olivia

p.s. the photo on the left is when Emma (one of my best pals and the graphic design mastermind behind some of your fave TGO items) and I drove the van to Riot Fest to sell some TGO and listen to some rock ‘n’ roll… one of my best memories from a TGO adventure (so far).

Contest: Leave us a comment with your (or your little good one’s) go-to karaoke song! We’ll choose a couple of you to send some TGO goodies… and Sam, Emma and I will sing the winner’s song at our next outing.:)

Kel - Olivia! Can’t believe this is you! Just saw this tonight after looking for entries about our beloved MJC founder Denise.

You taught our little guy (now 6) how to skate (remember him crying on the ice at 3 lol?) He has been playing hockey for year now since age 5! He is doing great and all that persistence paid off!

Had to comment and say Arlo is adorable and so happy to see you are at The Good Ones!

The night before Release day gots me thinkin’


Joining the Good Ones full time (along with a few amazing Mighty Acorn projects here and there) was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made. Yea, I know I’m only 26 and my life has boat loads of scary risks and opportunities ahead of me. But for almost 7 years now, I’ve felt pretty darn safe. Risk-free you could say. I was comfy and cozy in my Matilda Jane bubble.

Then why am I here, you ask? Why give up my the little world I loved so much? The little world Denise allowed me to help create.

I’m here because I realized that “comfy” and “cozy” started to mean complacent and lazy to me.

I also realized, the world I liked best was the one where I got to work with my hero, mentor, and best friend each and everyday.

I realized I liked risks. I liked building a company I believed in. I liked growing. And heck, I even liked change.

All of those things are scary. But all so worth it in when it’s for a company you believe in with every bit of your heart.

That’s all it took. I looked back on the excitement around starting The Good Ones back in 2012. I thought about Matt and his uber-talented team at OLG and our roundtable meetings sharing ideas and just plain dreamin’. And I thought about Denise. Man, I missed her. I thought about our story and how I didn’t think it was quite finished yet. I also thought about how I missed doing a bit of everything. I’ve got much more to share with this world than my love of color and design, let me tell ya!

And now I’m here on the eve of April 15th, feeling butterflies, bats, and bugs moving around like crazy in my stomach. It feels good to be nervous like this. It feels good to care so much. And you have no idea how good it feels to know you guys are there, rooting us on. Goodness, we couldn’t ask for a better group of cheerleaders. I mean that.

Before I forget, I loved reading your comments about Spring! It’s my favorite time of year and it sounds like it’s a few of yours too! Will the group of winners email me at with your child’s size and address for your goodies?!

Lastly, I want you to know that we’re so excited about the release tomorrow. Excited to share our first few pieces. I do mean A FEW. Tomorrow we’ll have about 8 new items to share. And in May another dozen or so. And even more happening this summer. Gotta remember, we’re just starting to get our legs here at TGO. So we’re small right now, but OH SO MIGHTY. Just ask Mister Gabe DeMarchis. He’s loving the new line.

And just a helpful FYI, Gabe’s stats are: Age 9, Weight 76lbs, Height 4″7. And he’s wearing our size 9/10. Also, just insider information for you “He was not the happiest trying on everything, but he did ask to keep the clothes.” Alright Gabe, I’ll think about it;)

Holly - I’ve been a Matilda Jane lover for years now, and I’ve been able to save and enjoy the memories of my first daughter’s clothes with my second daughter. There’s just something about the memories they have made in your adorable designs. And now may I just say how excited I am to 1) have a baby boy (almost 3 months) and to 2) see both of you more involved in TGO? So, so excited!

And now my son gets to share in the fun (and not just unisex straightees)! Can’t wait! And sign me up to be a TGO Trunk Keeper, lol!

Isbel (Belis) - I loved this, Sam! Taking risks is what livin’ is all about – and what better than to do it with people you call ‘family’! Loved the launch! Kudos to all :)

Amber V - YAY! I’m super excited to hear you’ve joined this team Sam! I have three little girls and we have loved MJ forever and I especially loved reading your blogs. Since my last little person is a boy, I’m looking forward to what this line will bring his way. Thanks
