Lauren has been with Whim since becoming our store Assistant Manager in November of 2013. She has been a real asset to our little store!! Customers love her personality & style!! Hear what she has to say below about her Whim favorites!!
Whim is unique for many reasons and I think that’s what makes it such a great boutique and fun place to work. The brick and mortar along with all of the windows are beautiful. When you add a bunch of amazing clothes to that mix, how could you not love your job!
We have a great clientele base that I have truly enjoyed getting to know. I want everyone to have a great shopping experience and really enjoy helping them find clothes that make them look and feel good. Even if they don’t find something that day, I want them to feel comfortable coming back knowing they can count on us for quality products and caring service.
Over the past 9 months I have acquired quite a number of great items, but tried to narrow it down to my top five!
My first favorite item from Whim is this leapord sweatshirt from Joie Soft. I purchased it days before my first shift and it has easily turned into one of the best things I have ever owned. I will wear it pretty much anywhere and everywhere and thanks to the quality, it hasn’t aged a bit!
My second favorite is the Kylie Crop from Hudson Jeans. This is my third pair of Hudson’s, but they are by far, my favorite jeans. They are comfortable and hold their shape day in and day out! Being 5’2, the fact that they are “cropped” doesn’t hurt either 😉
My black Chan Luu necklace is next in line. First, I got to hand pick this beauty when I went to my first buying show in New Yory City in May, so that makes it special in its own right. For those who haven’t been to a buying show, it is a true experience. And being at the Chan Luu booth was like a little haven. So many beautiful things where do you even start!?
Fourth item on the list is my Jenny Bird snake coil stud earrings. Jenny Bird is a “sister” company of Vanessa Mooney that Whim has carried for years. Both designers offer really unique pieces with a variety of styles. They are understated yet bold.
Fifth, but certainly not last is my Foley and Corinna bag!
When the Foley bags came in I couldn’t stop envying their leather. The colors, the zippers, the subtly… they are beautiful bags and one of them had to be mine. After about a week, I was the happy new owner of this gem! I wear it everywhere I go and couldn’t have chosen a better bag to suite me!
