Special Guest Speaker: The Vintage Contessa

The Contessa, also known as Donae Chramosta, is a multifaceted entrepreneur, luxury influencer, and philanthropist. She’s not just passionate about fashion; it’s her way of connecting with the world and giving back to her community. Beyond being a mother, she’s an award-winning businesswoman, published writer, podcaster, and keynote speaker.

In 2011, she founded “the Vintage Contessa,” a luxury handbag and accessories brand, complementing her husband Rob’s pre-owned luxury business, Times Past. Together, they offer exclusive, value-driven luxury experiences, often with a dose of humor on social media.

Their Houston store is a treasure trove for authentic pre-owned fine watches, luxury handbags, jewelry, diamonds, coins, accessories, and luggage. But her commitment extends beyond fashion and business.

Contessa hosts the “Living the Authentic Life” podcast, where she connects with purpose-driven tastemakers making a difference in their communities. Her dedication to social responsibility includes fighting sex trafficking and creating events that foster meaningful connections and creativity among women.

She’s garnered recognition for her contributions, earning titles like Woman of Distinction, Woman of Substance, and numerous awards for her charitable work. Her commitment to co-chairing charity events highlights her dedication to her community.

In essence, Contessa lives a luxuriously authentic life, following her passion, making a living, and positively impacting the world—a true embodiment of the quote, “ask what makes you come alive, and do it.” She’s a person who brings life to the world, and that’s precisely what the world needs.
