What to wear to work,威廉希尔备用网址fashion start-up edition: This week we've ventured inside the San Francisco offices of super-cool shopping start-upJoyus.com—a digital video shopping site that melds the traditional (static) e-commerce experience with home-shopping television (likeHSNandQVC).Check out what three of the top execs at Joyus.com wear to work—and find out how shopping experts shop...for themselves!
Gina Pell,Chief Creative Officer:I'm wearing vintage eyeglasses,一个Alexander McQueenassymetric zip dress,a stingray buckle bracelet (from Joyus!),andJimmy Chooblack sparkle booties.I splurged on these booties last winter and Sukhinder found them half-off at an outlet in Palm Springs.I'm trying to convince her to buy them because at Joyus,we're like fifth-grade BFFs who don't mind owning the same things—like that bracelet I'm wearing.I found it last year,tracked it down to sell on Joyus,and half of us in the office bought them and often wear them on the same day.I bought the other four colors I didn't own.I'm going to go broke working here!
Her personal style:My personal style is moody and eclectic.I love structure but also appreciate dandy,hippie,punk,'70s,'80s—anything with a sharp point of view.I dress differently day to day.One day it's vintageHalston.The next it's new,black,and angular.I also love bright colors and graphic patterns—although in the past few years I've toned down my palette to black,navy,grey and white.I'd say my love for 威廉希尔备用网址fashion was cemented by The Antwerp Six,a group of breakout Belgian designers from the 80s that includedAnn DemeulemeesterandDries Van Noten.Their aesthetic is minimalist,somewhat mathematical,with a strong,designerly edge.Martin Margielais another Belgian designer that wows me and I'm a major Anglophile (McQueen,Giles,Westwood,McCartney).The intellectual side of my personal style is drawn to Belgian and English designers and my passionate side is mainly Italian and French (helloMarniandHermes!).But then of course I'd be lost without my Americans likeTom Ford,Ralph Lauren,Phillip Lim,andMarc Jacobs!
Her number-one shopping tip:I'll never forget what my high school French teacher taught me: "Instead of wasting money on bargain trends,save your pennies and buy one amazingChanelsuit (even if you get it at a consignment shop).You'll keep it for 20+ years and you'll look fabulous every time you wear it." I've been using this advice to justify all of my shopping "investments" ever since!
Diana L Williams,Cofounder and VP of Product:I'm wearing aNicole Millerdress.I got this dress after watching a Joyus video on Nicole Miller's Fall Musts.After seeing it in the video and seeing how great it looked,I had to get it.I'm also wearingYSLpumps—I got these shoes brand new on eBay for an amazing steal!—and a La Mer Watch.
Her personal style:To me,the more relaxed and natural looking the better!I love comfortable clothing in muted,earth tones.I like simple clean lines and will not wear anything with frills,bows or sequins.I wear limited accessories and makeup—just enough to tie the look together.
Her number-one shopping tip:I love finding unique go-to products that you can wear to work during the day and later to dinner with friends.You're getting the value of two different outfits in one!
