Weekly Trends: 4th of July & Nautical

With July 4th coming up and summer in full swing, you can’t blame us for being in the mood for a little red, white and blue! Our trend highlights for this week are all about capturing the casual, laid back vibe of summer.

Ensemble 1, Ensemble 2, Ensemble 3

For the 4th of July, stick to comfy pieces like shorts, tank tops and tees. Since you’ll probably be busy celebrating the day’s festivities, a pair of comfy shoes or sandals is a good idea. And of course, red, white and blue adds that patriotic touch!

This summer, we’re also going back to one of our favorite go-to trends: nautical. It’s just one of those quintessential summer trends that’s super easy to wear. Grab a pair of boat shoes or espadrille sandals, a striped tee or dress, and you’re ready for the sunny days ahead!

As you may know, Las Vegas gets hot during the summer. Really, really hot. That’s why a few of us in Zappos Development have decided to start what we affectionately like to call “Tank Top Tuesdays”. It’s literally just that; every Tuesday, we rock our super awesome tank tops for everyone in the office to admire. Yes, even the dudes…or should I say, especially the dudes!

Super Awesome Description-May 2012 Winner

The Super Awesome Description award is a way of recognizing a member of the Zappos Development content team once a month. If a product description is particularly witty or creative, anyone in the company can nominate the person who wrote it.  The nominations are then read by other members of the content department and voted upon; the description with the most votes wins. The writer of that description is rewarded with a trophy and a certificate, not to mention recognition from their peers.

The winner for May is Jennie W. Jennie is part of the athletic performance team and her quirky description for the Raskullz Cutie Cat Helmet was too amazing to ignore. Congratulations Jennie!

We asked Jennie a few fun questions to get to know her better. Check out her answers below!

zappos content team,Raskullz,Super awesome description,Content Team,

What is your biggest Grammar pet peeve?

I’m not thrilled when I see pronoun/antecedent disagreement committed in pursuit of gender neutrality. Just make it plural, people.

What is your favorite color?

If frequency is any indicator, then black is the likely choice. But my dad will probably read this and tell me that black isn’t a color.

What inspired you when writing this description?

Raskullz generates extensive back stories about all of the characters in the line, so they actually make my job much easier. Then I just imagined my ten-year-old niece Soraya talking with her friends. They probably don’t talk anything like that, and I’ve just invented the what-a-33-year-old-believes-preteens-say language.

What's a fact people would be surprised to learn about you?

I was a four-year member of my university’s pep club. Apparently, people don’t normally find me peppy. Go Bears!
