If you or anyone you know has ever worked in retail, you know there’s some fantastic stories. This week’s guest, Drew Harris, has had some of the most prestigious jobs in the retail business…therefore, he not only has some very valuable information to share but you’ll want to stick with it until the end because his final story is one for the books!
Before we had Instagram to share all of our #fromwhereistands and #ootds, we had Pose. If you’re not familiar with the social site/app, it’s one where you upload your outfit, tag accordingly and others can shop the look. I’ve been using it for about three years now and they’re always coming up with new features, but the latest one happens to be pretty major.
On a scale of 1-10, how happy would you say your closet is? If you have a pile of dry cleaning over 30 garments, shapeless boots and/or wire hangers, you can’t give an answer over 5. Although I don’t know your closet personally, I know an organized closet is a happy one (and also makes for a happier owner). I’m no professional organizer (my personal closet isn’t perfect) but there’s a few things I’ve learned in my quarter-of-a-century lifetime that I think deserves some sharing. Especially something I like to call the Uber of dry cleaning. Yes, this exists.
So I’ve had my eye on this website for a while (and by a while I mean since they launched in November, so really not that long) and it’s a pretty cool idea. Think Gilt meets online luxury consignment meets The Coveteur…oh and the New York Times is a fan. All good stuff, right?
Vaunte is the brainchild of Gilt’s former VP of Creative (and one of the original Gilt team members), Leah Park, and Gilt’s former VP of Marketing and Brand Relations, Christian Leone. And if you’ve ever read By Invitation Only, you know Gilt gets the best talent.
But enough about Gilt, and more about Vaunte.
