Meet Kelsey Coughlin. Our fabulous new Assistant Manager has an arsenal of jewelry, chambray shirts and printed silks that would make any fashionista weak in the knees. Kelsey loves layering on accessories, her cats and baking our new favorite chocolate chip cookies.
1. Name three girls’ essentials.
The “perfect” pair of skinny jeans, ankle boots that look great with dresses and denim, and long necklaces for layering (okay, that’s technically more than one).
2. What are you favorite pieces in the store right now?
I’m totally an accessories girl. I don’t feel complete if I leave the house without earrings in, a necklace on, and a bracelet around my wrist. I’m obsessed with the accessories at Crush! Lately, I’ve been wearing my yellow gold skull earrings by Bing Bang almost every day. They give my outfits an edge, but are subtle enough to be classic. My other new favorite accessory is the studded coral bag by Street Level. I bought it to wear to a wedding and haven’t left the house without it since. I love that it’s feminine and super badass at the same time!
3. Who is your ultimate style icon?
Some sort of Jemima Kirke (during season 1 of Girls)/Jenny Lewis/Zooey Deschanel/Diane Keaton (circa the 1970s) hybrid. Is that possible? It’s too hard to pick just one!
4. Fourth of July or New Year’s Eve?
Fourth of July! I love BBQs and Fireworks and outfits that rep Americana.
5. Back to your accessories… What is your all-time favorite/most used item?
Honestly, my hair ties that double as bracelets. I never leave the house with at least 2 on my wrists.
