Why I like working at Article: There are so many reasons to love Article, but my favorite is that after working in Corporate America for over 20 yrs, it is such a delight to be surrounded by good people who love Fashion as much as I do.  Abe and Val are so genuine and are very good people who appreciate hard work, enthusiasm, and commitment from their staff.  It's so refreshing to work for people who appreciate all of these qualities.  Last, but certainly not least, the clients who shop Article are nothing short of FANTASTIC in every way.  It is so rewarding to work with customers who are friendly, open-minded and appreciate good quality, and luxury merchandise at a great value!

Favorite Color:  When I was a little girl I loved purple and blue.  Now that I’m a big girl, I would say yellow and blue...especially the combo. I do love orange though too.

Favorite Book or Movie:  “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee and “Gone with the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell. I thought in both of these books the movie adaptations were also EXCELLENT!  As far current books I would say “The Nightingale” by Kristen Hannah and “Next Year in Havana” by Chanel Cleeton.

Favorite Food: ALL OF IT, but if I have to narrow it down, it is Italian.

Why I like working at Article: Because it’s like going to a party every day!  I LOVE the people...and Val and Abe aren’t half bad either 😉. Article is truly a special boutique and I can tell our customers get that, which makes it easy to engage them in conversation.  Again, working at Article, is like going to one big party 😃


Favorite Color: I love magenta, it makes me happy and gives me energy...

Favorite Food: Kris Carr's vegan dinner recipes from her Crazy Sexy You program... I'm not even vegan but she just makes healthy food so dang delicious.  Also, I couldn't live without Ghirardelli's 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips.More important than any book or movie (lol), in our house we are completely obsessed with two shows: 1) Star Trek: Next Generation and 2) SpongeBob SquarePants.

Why I like working at Article: I love working at Article because it is a beautiful place full of ever-changing colors and textures... there is so much freedom and creativity in the air... And the people are amazing!

Favorite Movie or TV Show: I love to binge watch a good series!

Why I like working at Article: Working at Article is all about Abe and Val firstly. They are both so kind, fun, hardworking and thoughtful. I love working in a local shop in my area. Seeing the same customers that come in and their smiley faces & helping them to find just the right outfit or accessory that they will enjoy for an event or day to day. I also LOVE all the other employees/friends I get to know and share life with!
