Screen Shot 2017-07-31 at 12.20.50 PM

Our friend at Tamarind Living recently made her Bali essentials list and posted about Hintd on her blog!

In her words, Hintd is universally useful because, “Whether you are a millennial, baby boomer, male or female in the New York or Hong Kong, we all need products and experiences to achieve our personal goals and celebrate life.”

Her Bali list is proof that Hintd is the best place to plan a trip, and we love her suggestions on where to go and what to wear for the best Bali trip ever!

Vogue Marketing Assistant Shares Her Office Style Secrets

unnamed

One of our Cornell ambassadors, Charlotte Hersh spoke with her friend, Meghan Flynn, Marketing and Communications Assistant at Vogue, about her office style tricks.

What do you wear to the office most summer days?
Easy, light midi-dresses are a go-to (Reformation is amazing for these). Off-the-shoulder tops are still great, too, and generally office appropriate with a pair of jeans. With these looks, I’ll do a low white heel, or some kind of slide. However, when I don’t have time to think about an outfit, I’ll usually wear a pair of wide leg black pants, a crisp plain tee (James Perse has the best), and stark white sneakers. It feels corporate-dressed-down.

How important is it to not repeat an outfit?
I don’t subscribe to this philosophy, actually. I love when people have a signature look and stick to it. But, then again, nothing beats the feeling of debuting a really cute new purchase.

How do you go from desk to dinner?
I try to make plans ahead of time so that I can make sure to wear something that transitions well, and can be easily dressed-up with a change of shoes, a dramatic earring, etc. However, I’ve been known to change my mind on what I want to wear (and also what I want to do) after work as the day goes on, so I tend to keep an extra set of jeans and one or two tops at my desk just in case. It also doesn’t hurt that Saks is across the street from my office, so I can literally buy a whole new look if I’m feeling dramatic.

What do you keep under your desk?
Ideally, just a few pairs of shoes, and a box of our newest issue. It tends to get a bit more cluttered than that, though.

What is your go-to workout class?
I am absolutely obsessed with the hot yoga classes at y7. They’re all set to hip-hop/rap music— it might sound strange, but it’s seriously addicting. The Soho studio is my favorite.

What was the most surprising thing you learned when you started working in fashion?
The majority of people are really, really nice— from designers to celebrities to top editors. It’s not necessarily surprising, but it’s always so pleasant to meet someone who is super successful and still a kind, down-to-earth person.

Rosé or Raventos (sparkling rosé)?
Nothing beats a glass of rosé.

Red lip or nude lip?
Nude, but, more often, Glossier’s Generation G matte lipstick in ‘Crush.’

Uber or Lyft or Via?
Juno 🙂

By Chloe or Shake Shack?
I’ve never tried Shake Shack and probably never will. By Chloe all the way!

Slides or sandals?
Slides for sure. My signature, though, is definitely white sneakers. I’m a little embarrassed to say that I have about 20 pairs at the moment.

We like to think of the Nordstrom pre-sale as an invitation to start our fall wardrobes early, but with some deep discounts attached. No one’s retiring the bikinis just yet, but there’s definitely a lot to look forward to in this list. Here we found ones worth buying.
