weardrobe, yes please




OK, so here's the explanatory post that I've been alluding to for days now:

Deep breath...

It is with great pleasure that I announce to you fine folks, I have joined the Weardrobe team as their new community manager!! So that means, most site-related questions (i.e. contests, features, profiles) can be sent to me and, rest assured, I'll try my best to help you out. Or if I can't, I'll find the appropriate person to bug about it.

This means, of course, I left Reno (packed about 11 garbage bags full of shoes and clothes and miraculously fit it all into the Civic) and have been spending the past week or so officially living in Palo Alto, getting a crash course on the company, how it's run and how you guys use and interact with the site. It's been beyond inspiring so far, especially working alongside some very dedicated and creative people who make things happen! Yes!!

Specifically, I'm focusing on creative and community relations and was hoping I could pick your guys' brains for a little bit in regards to Weardrobe. Have you visited it before? Perhaps you're a member? What do you all enjoy about it? Any thoughts or comments you'd like to share?

Please send Weardrobe-related e-mails to krystal@weardrobe.com. I'd love to hear what you guys think.

On a side note, today's photos are courtesy of Suz of Weardrobe. And yes, I'm running away from her in the last photo (just kidding, Suz, just kidding). She's awesome. And just about as odd as me. Maybe even more so. It's a toss up most days.

Shirt: Black and white striped dress worn as shirt, H&M
Skirt: Black leather pencil skirt, vintage
Tights: Black sheer tights, Target
Shoes: Black wedges, Aldo
Scarf: Floral print silk scarf, Urban Outfitters

  1. That sounds so amazing, Krystal! I love Weardrobe! Their site is so clean, easy to navigate your wardrobe and label things and search for past outfits. Everything works well, I love the featured section where you can shop girl's looks and all of the contests they offer!

  6. Congrats!

    I just started following your blog this morning because of the Delightful Dozen posts that have been popping up. Then I got the email about the new Weardrobe contest and was like...another Krystal spelled the same way? That's strange given there's so many ways to spell it. But here's my explanation. :)

  9. Congrats. What an amazing job! I still get intimidated by Weardrobe but I like it better than any of the other similar sites because it's so much more navigable. Slowly but surely, I'll get the hang of it.

    Congrats again!

  15. Congrats! Weardrobe is awesome - what a great place to work. I love how supportive and inspiring the community is on Weardrobe. It was one of the first sites I ever posted an outfit photo to - after that I was addicted. The contests are amazing and Suzanne is super nice. Can't wait to hear more about your adventures!

    PS. Love that your blog title references a Kinks song.

  23. What a dream job! I can't wait to read about the inner workings of weardrobe. Yay for you to be exposed to so much personal style and get paid for it! If you learn the secret formula to being featured, let me in on it. :)

  24. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.............................................

  25. Congrats. And that scarf and shirt combo is amazing. I would have to say that I wish there were more featured outfits everyday on Weardrobe. It seems like it doesn't get updated as often as chictopia. And it also seems like only really high quality photos get in. I'm not saying let any photos in, but I think more can be accepted as featured.
