Meet Heather, our outgoing and always fabulous wholesale manager. Brains, beauty, and a sparkling personality. This blonde bombshell does it all from assisting all of our wholesale customers to starting new UV fashion trends like “Fascinator Friday” (yes, that’s a thing around here). Here, Heather shares some of her retro-inspired Unique Vintage favorites.
Welcome back, gals! You look fabulously rested! Let’s get to it, shall we?
The “Mad Men” star was spotted last week emulating her inner secretary and we adored the whole look. From hair to hem, we thought it was sharp, with just a hint of retro! You gals, however, didn’t quite agree. Since we didn’t get our usually vocal darlings to participate, we decided it would be fun to see what her fellow Mad Women might think about the situation. Hit it, ladies!
Meet Elizabeth, our social media community manager. (Ah, that strawberry blonde pixie cut, isn’t she a doll?!).
