Tell us more about you and your journey with Anthropologie.
I’m the Head Stylist for Anthropologie & Co. in Palo Alto, CA. I’ve worked with the company for three years, first as a part-time sales associate in our Los Gatos, CA location, then as a part-time stylist in our San Jose, CA store. I’ve been the Head Stylist in Palo Alto since March 2016. It’s been an incredible journey and I can’t wait to see how this trajectory continues to evolve!
What is your favorite aspect of working at Anthropologie?
It’s hard to pick a favorite aspect of Anthropologie, to be honest! I love the people I work with – both peers and customers – and I’m also head over heels in love with our product. I’ve met some of the hardest working people I know through this company. And I’ve purchased some of the most beautiful merchandise I’ve ever seen.
What makes Anthropologie special?
Anthropologie is my favorite store because there’s always something whimsical and lovely around the corner. We seek to “surprise and delight” our customers, but I also find that I too. I'm constantly surprised and delighted by my next project, partnership and conversational blouse. Each product we carry tells a beautiful story – from fanciful soap dishes and statement jewelry to luxe denim fabrics and hand-crafted blankets – everything feels purposeful and ripe with meaning.
Why did you choose to work at Anthropologie?
I chose to work at Anthropologie because simply put, there isn’t another store like it. There isn’t another store that I’d consider my home away from home. The product, the people, the customers…everything and everyone is delightful.
Wanderlust keeps us inspired… Do you have any recent favorite travels to share?
I haven’t ventured too far this year. But my favorite escape these days is into my vegetable and flower gardens. With the help and beauty of my Terrain gardening tools, my gardens are a place where I can re-ground after a busy day. The smell of the earth and the feel of the soft dust and dirt under my feet is heavenly. If I wasn’t in fashion, I think I’d be a farmer!
Anything else that you’d like to share?
When I walked into my first Anthropologie on Santana Row over a decade ago, I couldn’t believe a place like this existed. Almost fifteen years later, I still feel the same way and I count myself incredibly lucky to be a part of such a beautiful story.
