UV Staffer Faves: Gia Data Entry ExtraordinaireDecember 13, 2013 by Unique Vintage | Lifestyle, Pin Up, Vintage Inspired
Say, “Hello” to Gia, our oh-so-fabulous data entry/copywriting sorceress. She works her magic every day at UV by adding new products and copy to our site. Here, she shares a few of her favorite items from her Unique Vintage wish list.
“My hidden gem! I’m having a serious love affair with the Navy Sally Swing Skirt; my dresses are quite jealous. I love subtlety but hate blending in with the crowd; this skirt helps me accomplish that perfect in between. I can wear it with nearly anything and always look polished. It’s extremely flattering and has a little stretch so it slims but doesn’t suffocate me. Plus it looks seriously cinematic when I walk – so maybe I like to stand out a little more than I thought!”
“Oh, goodness – Nadine! It was nearly a battle royale at the UV offices when the Black Nadine T-Strap Pumps came in. I got a pair in classic black, and I don’t think the term ‘Happily Ever After’ has ever been more fitting for a relationship. I’m vertically challenged, and these shoes give me enough lift to boost me up without putting me in baby giraffe territory. I love the little old world details like the embroidered brogue tear drop cut outs and adore a good, sturdy ankle strap. Another go-to when you want to up the ante without going over the top, these dress up all of my outfits perfectly!”
“The print to end all prints. Heartbreaker knows how to craft a killer silhouette, and the 1950s Style Peacock Royale Monique Dress is a serious show stopper. It’s modest and intricate at the same time, and appropriate day or night. It has classic femininity that I love with a modern aspect that keeps things fresh. It’s balanced, comfortable and seriously unique. A compliment catcher for sure, my ego gets so excited when I wear it!”
“I love a little dash of playful macabre and cute kitchen items, so this one is a no brainer. The Sweet Spirits Sugar Shaker is one of the little details I like to have around the house. Its practical, good quality, and just a genuinely crafty item to own.”
“Our Unique Vintage brand offers loads of excellent items, and one of my favorites is the Gold Patent Bow Belt! It’s cute and it adds a little bit of whimsy without looking kitschy. This belt comes in a variety of different colors so I can accessorize like a pro. Plus they’re vegan leather so my outfits aren’t channeling any animal spirits. Everybody wins!”
And there you have it, dolls! Gia has fabulous taste, doesn’t she? Check back next time to meet another UV Staffer and their personal Unique Vintage faves!
