WAIT, SO WHAT DO YOU ACTUALLY DO: As the Senior Buyer, I manage the buying department. We have an epic team and all work really well collaboratively. My main focus is buying separates, so tops, skirts, pants ect. I am very fortunate to do what I love!
FAVOURITE THINK ABOUT YOUR JOB: NUMBER #1 - MY TEAM! We have such a great relationship and all bring a "good" crazy. They are such hard workers! I love a good Sydney hustle on a Thursday (buying trip), sourcing new trends on the ground. Nothing like a 3AM wakeup. Girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
YOUR COFFEE ORDER: Skinny Cap - me cheeky 🙊
GUILTY PLEASURE: My ultimate guilty pleasure is convincing myself that I need to go to Coles to get food for lunch but really I make a hard turn into the candy aisle to get a family size packet of Snickers Pods, Snickers King Size "Share Bar" and a cheeky twin pack of Twirl! 🍫🍫🍫
CURRENTLY BINGE WATCHING: Not proud of it, but I do LOVE a good reality TV show. I am a sucker for Keeping Up With The Kardashians on the flight from SYD > BNE every Thursday.
BEAUTY ITEM YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT: Wonderwood by Comme Des Garcons - love a good peppery fragrance.
DRINK OF CHOICE: Sour Ameretto baby! Also love an ice cold Corona! 🍺
