Let us introduce you to our featured lender of the month: Emily Men. Emily is a freelance fashion stylist and blogger. TheWardrobes is a lifestyle blog that Emily runs with her brother Jeffrey. It has posts about life, beauty tips, and fashion inspiration for both men and women!
WHEN DID YOU START LENDING/RENTING FROM STYLELEND?
I started lending to StyleLend in October or November. I’m not exactly sure! Sorry. But I love the idea of being able to rent/lend someone something to wear because you are able to make use of clothes that you otherwise wear once, and then they just sit there!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ITEM THAT YOU LENDED AND WHY?
I absolutely love the Alice + Olivia sequin dress. It’s the perfect party dress! So chic and easy! The color is so beautiful too.
HOW DOES WEARING A NEW OUTFIT MAKE YOU FEEL?
I love wearing new outfits! It’s always exciting because you have something new to show everyone about your personal style.
SHOPPING HABITS (DO YOU SHOP ONLINE, FLASH SALES, IN PERSON, ETC.)?
I always shop in person and online. I think online is great when you know the brand and how it fits, but I always like to see and touch the items in person.
FAVORITE BRANDS/DESIGNERS AND WHY?
I am absolutely obsessed with Giambattista Valli, Delpozo, Rosie Assoulin, Rodarte, Chloe, and honestly the list goes on! All of these brands embody everything that I love about fashion and just make the most beautiful clothes.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IN NY?
I love walking around and exploring because you always find hidden gems! It’s never-ending!
CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BLURB ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND, JOB, AND HOW LONG YOU’VE LIVED HERE?
I studied at FIDM in LA and found myself working in celebrity and fashion styling. After a couple of years, I decided to study fashion design in New York at Parsons! Since then, I have been working on my blog with my brother and freelancing in styling and design. I’ve been in New York for about 3 years now. Time flies by so fast!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Feminine, soft, whimsical, vintage, with a touch of edge.
ONE THING THAT WOULD BE YOUR “DREAM” ITEM TO RENT ON SYTLELEND?
I would love to rent a Chanel or Giambattista Villa haute couture gown!
