庆祝黑人历史月:
员工关注的焦点

In honor of Black History Month, we are amplifying the work and stories of 十字路口 employees. Today we spotlight two employees at our Melrose store: 阿莉莎 & 莎拉.

黑人历史月对你来说意味着什么?

爱丽丝娅: To embrace the past, present and future of the culture, art, history and pride with love and respect.

莎拉: Representation/celebration of all the wonderful aspects of Black Culture. 它不仅是一种庆祝活动, it is also an acknowledgment of all the hardships and struggles we’ve gone through and how we persevered.

Is t在这里 a Black leader or figure who inspires 你?

爱丽丝娅: 我从五岁起就开始跳舞了, Alvin Ailey was always a present figure in my life, from posters on my wall to training the style to going to classes at his academy in New York.

莎拉: Malcolm X and 罗莎·帕克斯, amongst many others, inspire me heavily. 罗莎·帕克斯, 特别是, because she was so resilient and stayed strong when she faced many injustices. 马尔科姆·艾克斯也一样. They both inspire me because they had the mindset of, “If not me, then who will?” That is something I try to implement into my lifestyle.

阿莉莎的照片

阿莉莎

你最自豪的成就是什么?

爱丽丝娅: Being a part of Beyoncé’s feature music video “Black Is King” was THE PROUDEST MOMENT in my life, especially because I was a dancer for the “Brown Skin Girl” segment. 整个过程我的下巴都抬起来了.

莎拉: Definitely stepping out of my comfort zone quite frequently. Whether it be putting myself in situations that may seem scary but turn out to be beneficial.

你最大的目标是什么?

爱丽丝娅: 为史蒂芬·斯皮尔伯格工作. I got somewhat close when I got the call to audition for “Westside Story,但那是在纽约, 当时我已经在做一个项目了. I wish I could turn back time and put my butt on the plane.

莎拉: 成为一名职业舞蹈演员. This has been a dream of mine for a few years, and I won’t stop until I achieve it.

莎拉

How has 你r background shaped 你r personal style?

爱丽丝娅: 看到ing the styles in the early 2000’s really made me pick and choose what I like, from natural hair to natural nails to then go into natural neutrals in clothes and wardrobes.

莎拉: My background has shaped my style by not letting anyone change my mindset on what suits me and how I 穿 it. Learning not to care about other people’s opinions when it comes to my style is so refreshing.

工作之余你喜欢什么爱好?

爱丽丝娅: I sew, cosplay and have been using those talents towards costumes for TV and Film. Dance is my first love, but costumes will always be on the same pedestal. 老实说,我过着两种生活.

莎拉: 去上舞蹈课. Taking dance classes is something that I have been doing for the past 3-4 years. I mainly enjoy taking hip-hop classes at studios in LA.

What is something people may be surprised to know about 你?

爱丽丝娅: 我是一个游戏玩家和动漫网迷! Someone the other day said, “The cake is a lie,” and I know it was a reference to the game “Portal.他们非常震惊. 之后beat365亚洲官方网站聊了30分钟游戏.

莎拉: I am actually such an introverted and shy person.

"黑乐"对你来说意味着什么? 你生活中哪些方面给你带来的快乐最多?

爱丽丝娅: 作为一个黑人,毫无歉意地感到快乐. 去爱你所爱的,并彻底享受它. 没有任何问题被询问. 艺术给我带来快乐. 所有的艺术. 这就是我在这个世界上应该做的. I don’t want to do art; I NEED to do art.

莎拉: Embracing w在这里ver 你 come from and appreciating all the differences because that’s what makes 你, 你. My family and friends 100% bring me the most joy. I love being surrounded by people that I love, and that love me.

2022年2月10日 Q & @windycitythrifter的凯特琳

We’re so happy when 你 tag us on Instagram and show us 你r 十字路口 finds! After a while, we feel like we get to know 你 and 你r style very well. 凯特琳就是这样的 @windycitythrifter. We feel like old friends, having seen her amazing secondhand finds 多年来. beat365亚洲官方网站早该这么说了&A.

继续阅读,了解生态设计师的生活, Kaitlin IGTV系列, 还有她在beat365亚洲官方网站店里找到的私奔礼服.

嗨Kaitlin! 请分享一些关于你自己的事情. 

I’m a millennial Chicago transplant, originally hailing from Upstate NY. 风格和表演是我毕生的爱好, and I’ve been able to grow upon them in the beautiful Windy City. 我和我最好的朋友结婚了. 风城节俭, and we enjoy going on hikes with our rescue pittie and exploring how we can do our part to combat climate change.

Kaitlin的照片

beat365亚洲官方网站知道你是十字路口的老客户. 谢谢大家! When did 你 first find us, and are t在这里 any favorite #crossroadsfinds that stand out in 你r mind? 

I first found 十字路口 when I moved to Chicago in 2012. In fact, my first two Instagram posts were taken in a 十字路口 dressing room! 手了, my favorite 十字路口 find was a cream button-down Free People dress that I found in June 2019, 我和我的伴侣订婚后一个月. I originally had plans to 穿 it for my wedding shower (which I eventually did in 2021). 然而, when we had to postpone our 2020 wedding and decided to elope, donning this dress made me feel so beautiful as I married my best friend!

私奔礼服照片

你是一个eco-stylist. 这听起来令人惊奇的. 这个角色是什么样的? 
作为一个eco-stylist, I help folks cultivate a more sustainable and budget-friendly wardrobe by styling them with secondhand pieces and helping create “new-to-them” looks from their existing closet. We connect on their wardrobe needs and goals prior to the session so we can pull and buy pieces with clear intentions. This way my clients feel confident about their purchases and how they’ll integrate them into their existing closets.

Kaitlin的照片

We noticed 你’re creating content over on IGTV too. 请告诉beat365亚洲官方网站更多信息.
I love utilizing video to spread secondhand love, so over on 我IGTV 你 can find some of my “Thrifty Wedding” content and “Intention-haul” series. I created my “Intention-haul” series in 2020 as a way to encourage others to join me on a journey of conscious and mindful consumerism. It’s a way to hold myself accountable for my own secondhand consumption. It has sparked incredible conversations in the community, and I believe the more we communicate in these spaces, beat365亚洲官方网站就能更好地前进!

Kaitlin的照片

What’s 你r best advice for shopping in a secondhand store? 
My absolute best advice is to go into the store with a solid idea of what 你 already own and a clear list of what 你 need to fill the gaps in 你r wardrobe. 耐心也是关键. When we consume slowly, we’re able to make the most mindful and long-lasting purchases!

Thank 你, Kaitlin, for spreading the word about sustainable secondhand fashion!

If 你 liked this article, 你’ll enjoy our other Q&和芭芭拉一起得A @barbara.去.穿 和Piera @hipiera.

2022年2月8日 3 Trailblazing Black-Owned Fashion Labels We Covet

T在这里 are some labels that cross the selling counters of beat365亚洲官方网站的商店 让beat365亚洲官方网站眼花缭乱. 今天,为了纪念黑人历史月,beat365亚洲官方网站一起分享 3 trailblazing Black-owned fashion labels that left a big mark on the industry (and our closets).

白色的

In 2013, the late Virgil Abloh founded his Milan-based label, 白色的. His innovative approach to merging street穿 with luxury was born from an architectural background, 了解芝加哥街头时尚, 以及与坎耶·维斯特的合作. By 2018, sales and popularity proved that 白色的 was the hottest label in the world.

Abloh later took his creativity to Louis Vuitton, w在这里 he became the first African-American artistic director at the renowned fashion house.

We’re always excited to see 白色的 items from sellers, including popular collaboration pieces with brands like Converse.

Telfar

This Brooklyn-based label was founded by Liberian-American, Telfar克莱门斯, 并以其无性别时装作品而闻名. It’s partnered with a wide range of people and brands, 包括胸诺尔斯, UGG, 和白色的城堡.

Telfar购物袋是它的明星产品. Crafted in vegan leather and embossed with the labels’ signature “T”, it consistently sells out and is often referred to as the “Bushwick Birkin”. beat365亚洲官方网站喜欢他们进入beat365亚洲官方网站的商店!

手袋的照片

芬蒂

The 芬蒂 label was produced under LVHM from 2017 to 2021. 它是由蕾安娜创立的, who became the first Black woman to head a fashion label with the French luxury company. The brand debuted with pop-up stores in Paris and New York. It carried a full line of clothing, shoes, and accessories.

The timing of the pandemic ultimately proved too much for the brand, but its sunglasses and jewelry often sold out and remain some of our favorite pieces.

Of course, this is only scratching the surface of trailblazing Black-owned fashion labels. 哪三个是你最喜欢的?
