A cold weather windowpane image from this post back in October of 2016. A good multi grid or cube-on-cube pattern can work in any season, just mix the base colors of your items (examples here, here), or for a more monotone look, alter the scale of the patterns (see here).

Question: What did you do working at Tory Burch? What did you study in school?

Answer: I attended the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and studied Political Science and Business. I’ve always had an interest in fashion and retail, but at the time, was not quite sure of how to make a career out of it. During my senior year of college, on a hunch, I applied to Gap Inc.’s Retail Management Program. After a very long interview process I was awarded a spot and soon after moved to San Francisco. I spent a year rotating through the program, doing hands on training to learn product development/production, inventory management/planning, and merchandising. Upon completion of the program, I went on to hold various positions within Old Navy HQ in merchandising. In 2012, I move to NYC and took a similar role at Tory Burch working in ready-to-wear. I ultimately became the Director of Merchandising for Accessories at Tory Burch and also later consulted with the Digital teams.

    Do you still work at Tory Burch? In past interviews you’ve always said blogging was never the end goal, that merchandising is what you love and maybe even hinted at one day doing what Tory herself has done (starting her own line). Admire what you do and how you run this side of your business so guess just curious on what you’re working on currently.
