Your position at Free People…
Assistant Design Coordinator for the Intimates team.
Describe your personal style…
I would say my style is girly (but not too girly) and simple with a sprinkle of boho.
What makes you feel confident?
Being tan! I love the fresh off-the-beach/sun-kissed look.
Who is your style icon?
I don’t really have a specific style icon but I’m constantly inspired by the people who work here. Everyone has such unique style and I love seeing how people put outfits together.
Favorite part of your job?
I love that I get to work with different teams every day — design, buying, PD, tech, and production — so it’s a great learning experience. I find it really interesting to see what role everyone plays in producing a garment. Also, I absolutely love everyone I work with. My team has always allowed me to be really involved from the very beginning which I really appreciate.
What are your beauty + wellness must-haves?
In terms of wellness, my number one thing is to drink plenty of water! Staying hydrated makes a huge difference in the way you feel.
What do you do outside of Free People?
I write for an online sustainability blog called Green Philly. I’ve always really enjoyed writing and interviewing, I did a lot of both in college, so when this opportunity came about I was excited to get back into it. Other than that, I try to travel whenever I can. I love exploring new places, experiencing different cultures, and meeting new people. The world is so big and has so much beauty — I want to see it all!
One thing in your closet that you could not live without is…
My dad’s Levi’s denim jacket from the 80’s.
Your favorite (upcoming) trend…
Sets! I also love this fun hair bow thing going on.
The soundtrack to your life…
Kaleo and Chvrches are two of my favorites at the moment, but I listen to just about everything. My dad raised me on blues and rock and roll, my sister introduced me to pop punk when I was a pre-teen, and my boyfriend is obsessed with metal (so I’m forced to listen to it sometimes). I’m also a sucker for a catchy pop song. To say my Spotify has an eclectic mix of music would be an understatement.
