As part of our Staff Style Spotlight series, meet Liz, a Buyer at Crossroads. We asked Chicago employees to bring their style and star in our latest photoshoot wearing their Crossroads finds. Read about Liz’s personal style, favorite Crossroads finds, and favorite thing about working at Crossroads.
Tell us about your favorite Crossroads find.
Honestly, my Mike Wazowski bag that I chose for the shoot is my favorite thing so far. Some people thought it was weird, but I’m obsessed with weird purses (even better if it’s a mini!). I love funny fashion, not everything has to be serious.
What are you dying to see come into your Crossroads store?
I really am waiting on either a pair of Demonias in my size or a really cool colorway of sneakers. I need more shoes!
What are your favorite spring trends?
I will always and forever be obsessed with pastels! My absolute favorite color is light purple and “Digital Lavender” is one of the big projected colors for Spring 2023. I’m excited to fill my closet with everything that color!
How would you describe your personal style?
Sometimes I feel like I’m still figuring out my own style, but I love alternative the most. Whether it’s Pastel Goth or 90’s Grunge. that’s one thing I love so far about working at Crossroads, is that I am free to experiment day by day and change it up based on what I’m feeling.
What is your favorite thing about working at Crossroads?
I love it when I’m at the tagging counter helping someone in the fitting room or checking someone out at the register and they excitedly tell me about their Crossroads find. Like “Oh I’ve been looking all over for one of these!” or ” Oh my god I wasn’t even looking for this but it’s perfect!” I love that. I get genuinely really happy for them!
Top tips for selling at Crossroads?
You won’t know until you try. Just like you know know what you’ll find in a secondhand store, you also never know what we’re looking for specifically that day. Give it a try, bring it in.
