This month’s YMI fashionista is a thrift store junky with a cool fashion forward edge, our very own Marisol! She’s sharing her style tips and tricks with you as well as a glimpse of her day to day at YMI, take a look…
What’s your favorite YMI Jean? The jeggings are my favorite, and I have all the washes. I just wish they had zippers so I wouldn’t have to do the shimmy dance when putting them on (even though sometimes that can be fun). the good thing is that now we are doing jegons that have zippers so I cant wait for our next sale! with all the sales we’ve had, I’ve made a nice collection of denim in my closet & there’s always room to experiment. So sometimes I get an old pair & play with it. right now im really obsessed with scalloped styles, so I decided to turn my pants into cute scalloped shorts. I love how they came out!
What’s your job at YMI? That’s a difficult question because I have many jobs, I don’t think you can put a title on me. I work with both the design and production departments, which can get a bit crazy. My typical day is getting tech packs done & finalized, approve (trim/washes/embroidery), deal with factory issues and chasing down samples. And there’s a lot of stuff in between so I have my hands full.
What’s your favorite thing about working at YMI? How I learn new things, all the time! And the fun girls I work with!
What’s fashion trends are you liking right now? Scalloped everything of course hahah. But I also love love love the high waisted styles! Im so glad I can go anywhere & buy a pair. Whether it’s a short, flare, skinny they have them all. Before I’d have to search thrift stores for them & then have to tailor them because most likely they are too big for me.
What’s your must have accessory? A cute vintage purse, because the odds are that nobody will have it and its always a nice piece to have.
How would you describe your style? I’m a huge thrift store junky. I love how you can go through the racks and you can see so many different eras of clothing.
I like to be casual and comfortable at work, and on the weekends I like dressing up. Some days I want to dress a little 50’s or 90’s, etc. and im not afraid to experiment or wear color so my style always changes a bit.
