Meet Gretchen, a Crossroads Buyer. We asked employees at our Oakland store to bring their style and star in our latest Crossroads photoshoot wearing their favorite Crossroads finds. Take a look at her photos, see behind the scenes shots, and read about her style. Come back on Monday to see our next featured Crossroads employee.

Tell us about the fashion piece that “got away.”

There was a pair of black high-top Commes des Garcon Converse shoes that fit me perfectly and were in great condition, but a customer bought them. Hopefully another pair comes in!

What is your summer uniform?

My closet stays the same throughout the year, with lots of layers. But in the summer, I wear short sleeve shirts with either Dickies or black 505 Levi’s. I tend to always wear Vans.

What is your fall uniform?

I’ll layer a sweatshirt and/or jean jacket over my short sleeve shirt with Dickies or black 505 Levi’s.

What are you dying to see come into your store?

I’m waiting for a pair of Chelsea Dr. Martens in black to come in.

Favorite thing about working at Crossroads?

I love seeing someone purchase clothes that I brought in. Then I know that BOTH of us have good taste.
