Good morning, divas! Welcome to another edition of “Meet the Divas,” where we introduce you to the gorgeous and brilliant babes who keep our company movin’, shakin’ and creatin’ pretty dresses! Today’s Diva started out working in our Magazine Street Dress Boutique, but was recently promoted. She’s sweet as pie, and we hope you love her as much as we do!
Hey, pretty lady! What’s your name and what’s your job at Trashy Diva? How long have you worked at Trashy Diva?
Hi! My name’s Danielle, and I do Trashy Diva’s digital marketing. I came to Trashy Diva last October.
What do you love most about living in New Orleans?
I love the abundance of old haunted houses and that I can find a Popeyes Chicken on nearly every corner.
Which do you prefer… Halloween or Mardi Gras?
My favorite holiday is Halloween! It’s the spookiest time of the year!
If you could have any super power, which would you have?
I would like to have the power of time manipulation. It would be so great if I could just pause time every once in awhile and take a nap.
Confession time! Just HOW MANY Trashy Diva pieces do you own?
Well, I only just started my Trashy Diva collection. I own about 10 pieces.
What’s your favorite dress and/or accessory in the stores right now?
I am lusting after the Ghost Tessa dress. I say hello to it every time I pass it at the shop. I also love the Hottie Mini Dress in Black Rayon.
If you could only save 3 Trashy Diva pieces from a fire, which ones would you pick?
I would save my Bianca Dress in Leopard, Hottie Mini Dress in Black Rayon, and the Gathered Mini Skirt in Black Voile.
What’s your shopping method/M.O.? (ie: do you love one of a kind items, vintage, do you buy multiples of a same style?)
When I shop I always think about how I could incorporate whatever I’m buying into an outfit. I think of whether or not the piece could work with something I already have. Sometimes it gives me an excuse to buy more but it usually keeps my spending under control.
What are your style inspirations?
I always look to Lana Del Rey and Sky Ferreira for style inspiration. To be honest, I am also inspired by my co-workers’ fashion choices. I work with a lot of well dressed ladies and it’s hard not to steal their style ideas!
What film stars or celebrities are your favorite?
Marina Diamandis of Marina and The Diamonds is one of my favorite celebrities. She’s super down-to-earth and has some great clothes.
If you could switch closets with any person (living or dead), who would it be and why?
I would definitely switch closets with Lana Del Rey. Her style is so diverse and unique.
What’s your favorite book and film? (And which film has the best fashion in it ever?)
My favorite book is The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffeneger. It’s a tough one, but I think my favorite film is Black Swan. The fashion in Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette is incredible!
When you’re not at Trashy Diva, how do you like to spend your time?
I’m a mommy to two wiener dog puppies. When I’m not working, I love to take my babies to the dog park and also snuggle them.
Thanks, Danielle, for opening up! Not only is Danielle the sweetest, but can we say – Dang! She’s got some great modern style icons? Until next time, divas – have a wonderful weekend ahead!
