Meet the face behind the brand
Posted on 28 April 2016
As she walked into the store, the ocean breeze floating through the front door and sunlight blazing in gave her this almost ethereal glow. When she smiles, her whole face lights up and she instantly makes you feel like a friend.
Meet Courtney, the face of The Gypsy and the Officer.
We thought it would be fun to put her to the test with our own version of 20 Questions. As I sipped a coffee the size of my head and tried in vain to appear taller, tucked my crazy hair behind my ear and sucked in my stomach, I realised I didn’t need to. There’s no airs and graces to Courtney. She’s beautiful but in that annoyingly effortless way. She’s kind and sweet and so down to earth. Every question is answered so honestly that I felt we were just two friends chatting.
So here’s 20 Questions with Courtney.
Actually, there’s 23. I lost count.

A hair tie and paw paw ointment. I take that stuff everywhere!
