Office Style: Meet Ali

“Don’t overthink decisions — always listen to your gut!”

Introduce yourself to our readers! :)

Hi, I’m Ali, the Visual Merchandising Coordinator at Home Office.

Favorite part of your job?

Aside from being surrounded by amazing and supportive women, I love that get to spend some days merchandising in stores, and other days at the office — no two days are ever the same!

Describe your personal style…

Simple, neutral palette + comfortable.

Who or what inspires you?

Nature & art (especially artists such as Egon Schiele and Mark Rothko).

What are your beauty + wellness must-haves?

Biologique P50, rms Uncover Up, rms Master Mixer, rms Buriti Bronzer, YTTP cleanser.

What do you do outside of Free People?

I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I am currently on the keto diet, but one of my go-to recipes is salmon over arugula with avocado, peppers, oyster mushrooms, a poached egg, hemp seeds and a dressing made of olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper.

In addition to cooking, I love painting. I have been interested in art since I was a child — I would ask for art supplies for every Christmas and birthday. My grandfather was a designer for Wanamaker’s and my mother is also very creative — I think that is where my love for art came from! Most of my recent paintings were made for friends’ and family members’ wedding invitations, watercolors of venues, etc. 

If you had to wear one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A comfortable linen maxi dress and sandals!

Best concert you’ve attended OR dream concert you’d love to attend

I wish I could have gone to a Bowie concert in the 70s.

One piece of advice you’d give your younger self.

Don’t overthink decisions — always listen to your gut!

What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery today?

Pay off my student loan and my mortgage, then pay off all three of my sisters’ student loans! Book a trip to Morocco!
