Mackenzie works in our home offices here in Milwaukee as an Assistant Merchant. She is a creative, hard working gal, and is a total asset to her team here. She is a joy to work with and always makes sure to put 110% into any project she is involved in.
She takes fashion to the next level, by wrapping up her style with current trends into a pretty little bow–it’s always fun seeing what she is going to wear next to the office. She can pull off any style with poise and is definitely an inspiration to many!
We asked Mackenzie a few questions to get to know her better, and now are a little more motivated to get out there and workout, enjoy a new restaurant and see what fun fall trends are up and coming. Check out our Q&A with Mackenzie below.
What do you love about your job?
I love following the current trends in retail and working with the product. I’m definitely a creative-minded person, so looking at how certain styles and colors are selling, and assorting product for upcoming seasons, is what really gets me excited to be in the office. It doesn’t hurt that I work with a very fun and outgoing team; being able to laugh and joke around in the office once in a while helps keep the mood light and energetic!
What are some activities you love doing on the weekends? At night?
I’m very big into fitness/staying healthy, so I really like to go to the gym or go for a run after work during the week. Not only does it help keep me in shape, but for an hour I can forget about everything else and just pump up my music and go. It has become a big de-stresser for me.
I also love to shop, so on the weekends it’s a safe bet that you can find me browsing new product at the mall, or checking out all the cute boutiques in the Third Ward. Even if I don’t buy anything – self-control is something I’ve been working on 😉 – I feel like it helps me stay on top of what’s trending.
What are some of your favorite products from Bon-Ton you have bought?
One thing to know about me is that I LOVE shoes and handbags. I’ve started a tradition of buying myself a new handbag every September as a birthday present to myself – Michael Kors has definitely been the winner when it comes to the styles I’ve chosen! I’m also a big fan of anything Vince Camuto; the edgier, fashion-forward vibe of the line makes me feel like I can take on any obstacle that comes my way! I’m a big believer in the saying, “Look good, feel good.”
What is a new hobby, place, restaurant, etc. that you have tried and loved?
Just over a year ago, I started a fashion blog called Style Sangria as a way to share my creativity and passion for everything style related. It took a lot of time to get my blog up and running, but I absolutely love working on it – it’s an awesome creative outlet for me outside of work, as well as a way to share my talents with others!
As far as restaurants go, I’m starting to become a regular at The Outsider, the rooftop bar of the Kimpton Hotel in the Third Ward of Milwaukee. Considering The Outsider is a rooftop, I think it would be pretty hard for me not to love going there, but it has an awesome atmosphere and is a fun date night spot! I’ll definitely be sneaking in a few (or many) more visits before the weather cools down.
