    Mandy is the assistant to our wholesale account managers.  She mostly  assists Saehee who is the director of retail and manages all of our major and foreign accounts. She says it’s a lot of paperwork and shipping but her fondness for extreme organization and control allow her to shine in this environment.

    How would you describe your personal style? I’m pretty sure my style was established in Junior High and has only mildly evolved since.  I went to a Junior High that was also a High School and I always looked up to the cool high schoolers and I feel like I dress now how they did then.. They were ahead of their time!  Shout out to LACES!

    Where did you get the items you are wearing from? The leopard clutch is obviously Clare V. My chambray top is Madewell, the tee is a vintage Black Flag shirt that I’ve had for probably 15 years. My sunglasses are American Optics dead stock that I bought at Driftwood before Bar Stella opened. The pants are also Madewell and the shoes are Rachel Comey hand-me-downs from Clare Vivier herself!

    Does your job affect what you wear everyday?  Not at all.  I’m usually at my desk trying to stay warm, the studio is always super cold!  When I first started working here I was the studio assistant and was always running around so I never wore nice shoes, but now I’m sitting at a computer so I can wear whatever.

    What bag from the spring line are you coveting? I really love all of the Matilde Canvas Totes, if I had to choose I’d get the Mexican Print with Cream Grass Mat Leather.  But between you and me I’m holding out for a Pre-Fall bag, I can’t wait!!

    If you could live any other city what would it be? The only way I would leave Los Angeles is if it exploded, or sank, or some kind of apocalypse went down. And even then I’d probably just die here. Or I guess I’d move to Paris, if you made me!

    You have lived in la your entire life, could you share some secret spots or places to go? Hmm.. secrets?!?  I don’t feel like there are any secrets left thanks to Jonathan Gold’s one million restaurants in LA that nerd! Theres this place called Dino’s on Pico just West of Vermont that has the BEST chicken in Los Angeles, it’s served on a bed of french fries and oh my god it is soooo gooood. My favorite place to hide-out or if I’m going through a hard time and need to relax is the Crystal Spa in Koreatown.  They have complimentary Aveda products and they’re open 24 hours on the weekends and close at 1AM on weekdays AND they offer 6 hours of complimentary parking!! Anyone in LA is tempted by free parking.  And then you soak in a hot tub until 3AM, it is the greatest.

    Jen is the master of allocation and numbers at CV. She monitors sales trends, factory capacities, and receiving. Without a doubt she has the best hair in the studio. Her perfect big wave curls make us all want to step up our hair game. 

    How would you describe your personal style? My style is very simple and feminine. I dress for comfort and ease. Monochrome rules. 

    Where did you get the items you are wearing from? Tell us about your hair. I am obsessed with my black pelli Sac Brettelle. It goes with everything and I love that it has two pouches so I can divide things up! My dress is from Madewell, shoes are by Rachel Comey, and the sweater is Gap. I use a curling iron on big sections of my hair on low heat so that the curls fall out and make the wave bigger. 
    Does your job affect what you wear everyday? Not at all! I am seated for most of the day so I can where whatever I please. The higher the heel the better. 

    What bag from the spring line are you coveting? The periwinkle Weekender is calling my name
