Meet Tamika, a Crossroads Floor Supervisor. 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 Tuesday to see our next featured Crossroads employee.

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

There was an obi belt that was in perfect condition. The seller told me that it was expensive but she didn’t want to keep it any longer. I had intentions of putting the belt aside to purchase, but the day got busy. Later that day, a gentleman came to the register with several items including the obi belt! I was in shock and totally thrown off guard. I really wanted that belt and it definitely got away.

What is your summer uniform?

My summer uniform is a really nice pair of high-rise denim skinny jeans, a loose fitting tank with a bright colored bralette underneath, cute strappy sandals, a cross-body bag and hoop earrings.

What is your fall uniform?

Skinny jeans, black turtleneck, a great oversized loose sweater/cardigan and ankle boots in black or brown with a matching leather backpack.

What are you dying to see come into your store?

Valentino Rock Stud heels in any color, size 7.5 or 8.

Top tips for selling with us?

Comb through the items you are bringing to sell first. Be sure they are in great condition (no stains, tears, buttons missing, unwanted holes).

Favorite thing about working at Crossroads?

Finding one-of-a-kind pieces that I wouldn’t find at a retail department store. The employee discount is also my favorite.
