My Mythology – Creating our own living legacy at Zappos.
One of the joys about working at Zappos is the freedom to be ourselves through our own personal style. Style shouts! Individuals identify themselves through their personal style. Taking the chaos out of the closet and using clothing as a celebration to create personal mythology or legend is something I have been fascinated by.
What is someone trying to say through their style?
Join me in the discovery. Each week I will take an employee from Zappos and find out their personal psychology through their favorite outfits.
Today we study the mythology of Hannah E. : Lead Content Coordinator for Fashion Jewelry at Zappos.com.
How would you define your look?
Vintage-inspired or beachy casual, depending on what I feel like that day.
What inspires your style?
I get inspired by people who look effortlessly stylish…there’s absolutely nothing worse than someone who looks and acts like they try too hard.
Who is your favorite designer?
My all-time fave is Christian Dior, but some of my favorite contemporary designers are Zac Posen, Alexander Wang , Charlotte Ronson and Marc Jacobs …oh! and I can’t forget—TOM FORD!
Who are your fashion/style icons?
I think Nicole Richie has a great instinct for style…and of course I love Kate Moss, she’s like the Twiggy of my generation.
What are your favorite labels?
I’m not too particular, as long as it fits and looks good.
Local or haole style?
Haha! I’m no haole…I can get down with the slippahs and shorts any day…just not in the office!
How would you define your mythology that you portray through your style? Laid-back beach bum meets high-maintenance Vegas chick? Yeah…let’s go with that!
What is your favorite decade for style?
My favorite era for style and everything else is the 60s, and early (PRE-DISCO!) 70s.
What is your favorite fabric?
Cotton (Supima cotton to be exact)
What is your favorite color?
I have three I can’t live without, grey, black and white! Are those even colors?
Do you need to take out a second mortgage for your style?
In this economy? Never!
Diamonds or pearls?
I don’t wear either
What are your fashion rules?
If you can’t drink beer and still be comfortable in it, your outfit is too tight!
What is the most you’ve spent on a handbag?
800 bucks, Dior logo saddle bag, which I sadly never wear anymore.
Would set foot in a thrift store?
What is the best thing you’ve ever found at a thrift store?
Someone found it for me….this Moschino dress!!
What is the most you’ve ever spent on fashion and for what item?
That aforementioned Dior bag. I don’t know how I afforded it…I was a broke college student!
