Gigi is SO Gucci

Top Seller, Gigi Reed is no stranger to Gucci. In just a few months, Gigi has skyrocketed from a woman who needed to consolidate her closet to move across the country to being one of our seller stars.

The products she sells speak for themselves - they are always in incredible shape and highly desirable brands. See for yourself: http://www.threadflip.com/GigiReed

We decided to take a little time to get to know her and all the things about Gucci that she loves!

Q: Where do you live?

A: I just moved to Durham, North Carolina from San Francisco a little over a month  ago.

Q: How long have you been selling consignment on Threadflip?

A: I started selling with Threadflip right before I moved. It was so nice to be able to sell some of the clothes I no longer wear before moving across the country.

Q: What is it about the designer that makes you like to wear their clothes?

A: Gucci is such an iconic brand. I love the history behind the label; the GG logo, the metal horsebit, the crest.

Q: What was the first item you purchased from your designer partner?

A: These sunglasses. They were my first pair of designer sunglasses and I wore them everywhere.

Q: How does your designer partner allow you to express yourself?

A: I love how Gucci pays tribute to their archives and history but always stays on trend. I think that’s something I aspire to do. Walk the line between being classic and current.

Q: What has been the favorite piece you have sold of your designer partner?

A: This bow wallet is so sweet. I love the embossed leather and the size of it. 

Q: Anything else you would like to share about yourself…

A: I work in Fashion as a marketing consultant for designers and boutiques. Seeing so many beautiful things each day I end up shopping more than necessary. It’s so nice to be able to use Threadflip to help keep my closet fresh and uncluttered.

Employee Highlight - Sarah Jura

It’s no secret; women in tech are hard to find. Especially creative women who speak ‘geek’ and can translate that into design that gets people excited! We lucked out when Sarah Jura knocked on our door four months ago.

Sarah is the eye behind the site and mobile design. Her eye for color and symmetry keep the Threadflip experience cohesive and fun for us all! So, we were curious to get to know her a little bit better, and thought you might be interested in what we found out.

How did you get started in technology?

Coming from a branding & marketing agency background in Chicago, designing product was a natural transition for me moving to San Francisco. I never truly had a background in print, I had always had a focus on the user experience. I started my design career focusing on interactive design during the “I need a website!” boom of 2004. With the need to keep up with technology, my design career has constantly been a rapid evolution for sure.

What is your favorite project that you worked on as a product designer?

My team and I have recently redesigned the navigational structure of our IOS app – dropping soon! I particularly enjoyed it because navigation is the root of the user experience. If you nail how users get to content, everything else tends to fall into the right places. I’m an organizational nut so I truly love designing this aspect of the product.

What has been your biggest struggle as a ‘woman in tech’?

Even before choosing this career path, I noticed the unbalance of women to men in tech. I was touring Purdue’s campus with my parents when I was a senior in high school and we stumbled upon the Technology building. When we walked in, I was excitedly greeted and given a private tour of the new department. Every computer lab we walked into was 100% male and my mom gave me a wink. Who knew that 6 years later I would meet my husband at work – a fellow designer in tech. Now, I keep seeing more and more opportunities for women in tech who design and code and I believe that the trend will keep growing!

What fashion brand became a favorite once you started shopping on TF?

Madewell, JCrew, Kate Spade Saturday, Splendid, James Perse, Loeffler Randall, Vince, Phillip Lim. I’ve always loved these brands because they mix & match perfectly for my style, but on Threadflip, I’ve found such great deals on these brands. Some were items I had missed out on in stores, so that was especially exciting to find them later.

Favorite *offline* place to shop? (‘Cause let’s be for real, we all know you shop Threadflip first online!)

So it’s not truly offline (yet), but I’m in love with Everlane. They make the perfect basics at an awesome price point. And, they’re trying out their first offline venture by offering a 1-hour delivery service here in SF. I’ll definitely be trying that out.

**Of course, Sarah’s favorite shop is online! What were we thinking asking a web designer an offline question?!**

  • Q: Where do you live?

  • A: Tribeca, NYC

 

  • Q: How long have you been selling consignment on Threadflip?

  • A: I discovered Threadflip about 9 months ago.

 

  • Q: What is it about the designer that makes you like to wear their clothes?

  • A: I gravitate toward classic and simple pieces, but ones that have an interesting twist which you usually find in the details or fabric textures, especially with higher end designer brands.

 

  • Q: What was the first item you purchased from your designer partner?

  • A: One of my favorite designers is Tory Burch, and my first piece was a cropped textured black trapeze jacket that you could wear with just about anything, but at the same time it was an interesting and unique statement piece that really held it’s own.

 

  • Q: How does Tory Burch allow you to express yourself?

  • A: I like clothing that’s both subtle, classic, and statement making at the same time which basically describes the Tory Burch aesthetic in a nutshell.

 

  • Q: What was your favorite Tory Burch piece you have sold?

  • A: One of my favorite Tory Burch pieces that I sold was a white leather Sgt. Pepper style jacket which I totally would have kept for myself, but it was just a little too big for me.

 

  • Q: Anything else you would like to share about yourself…

  • A: I am just really fortunate that I am able to make a living doing something I love. I started my business selling second hand designer clothes as a hobby a number of years ago, and it has since grown into a successful venture that’s been steadily expanding beyond the borders of NYC thanks to selling platforms like Threadflip.

Flippin’ for #NYFW: Kick-off with BCBGMAXAZRIA

As we mentioned yesterday on Facebook, we are going to be following #FashionWeek with some of the greatest names in design… as seen on #Threadflip! We got together with some of our Top #FullService Sellers to give them some time to chat you up on their favorite designers.

We hope you tuned in to the show, but don’t worry if you missed it. Here’s the link to the #MBFW YouTube channel where you can catch up on all of the shows.

Okay ladies… here we go!

Kelly Alonso is perfect to kick things off. She happens to be head over heels for #BCBG and since they are starting the show we thought it was a match made in consignment heaven.

  • A: I live in beautiful and exciting, Miami, Florida! 

  • Q: How long have you been selling consignment on Threadflip?

  • A:I have been selling clothing and accessories on line since 2005.  I have been selling on Threadflip for about a year now. I am very impressed with the site, they make it very easy for customers to find and purchase good quality designer apparel.

  • Q: What is it about the designer that makes you like to wear their clothes?

  • A: BCBG is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. That says a lot about their “timeless” clothing line. Wearing their clothing easily makes you feel good about yourself! Maybe it’s the perfect fit, the quality of the fabric or the trend setting designs. Truthfully though, whatever it is, I LOVE the BCBG clothing line and so do a lot of my friends and customers!!

  • Q: What was the first item you purchased from your designer partner?

  • A: I remember one of the first items that I purchased - it was a BCBGMAXAZRIA gown I just had to have for PROM! It was a mint green chiffon type material and so gorgeous it made me feel like the only girl in the room! I have been hooked on BCBG ever since!

  • Q: How does your BCBG allow you to express yourself?

  • A: BCBG’s clothing line appeals to every personality style. Wearing their stylish line makes me feel confident and sexy in any situation. 

  • Q: What has been the favorite piece that you have sold of your designer partner?

  • A: I have a BCBGMAXAZRIA black dress on Threadflip right now that I had a very difficult time letting go of. The detailed embroidery and patchwork on it is very beautiful & unique!

  • Q: If you could tell your designer anything, what would it be?

  • A: HAPPY 25th ANNIVERSARY BCBG! I can’t wait to see what the next 25 years of your stylish fashions brings us!!
