  • How do you pick your amazing stylists? 
    All women deserve star treatment and she’ll get it, without spending “star” prices. Our stylists help women bring out their inner celebrity, as they are often chosen for their personal style and projects that reflect translatable fashion for real women.

  • What are your favorite shoe trends for fall?

  • You just opened a newly designed office by Jessica Marx. How did you come up with the design concept?
    We had Jessica design a space that would help our designers see everything that comes through our doors. You never know where inspiration can strike! All of our rolling displays (from clothing to jewelry and of course, shoes!) are actually on wheels, which allows our internal meetings to take place across the entire space. We’ve really ditched the idea of sitting behind a desk and moved onto the idea of interactive fashion fun.

  • What were some key items that you had to have in your new office? 
    -Racks on wheels
    -Design pods for each group
    -Artwork to inspire
    -A ‘picnic’ think table with a dash of pink trimmed inspiration

     

  • Favorite room in the office?
    Inside the kitchen, where we have a deluxe cappuccino machine! The team loves an espresso fix!

  • How do you sparkle? 
    By sitting under the pink chandelier in the buyer’s lounge where inspiration and ideas come to life.
