WHAT'S ON YOUR PLAYLIST RIGHT NOW?

I am obsessed music and I'm scattered across the spectrum. Dependent on my mood I can be listening to Schubert, Jefferson Airplane, Joni Mitchell, Patsy Cline, Monster Rally, Portugal, the Man, or A Tribe Called Quest... I am really all over the place.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNER?

You will normally find me completely decked out in vintage. I just love the unique and funky styling of the past. Although I don't have a particular designer I'm obsessing over right now, Na Nin has become my top shop for groovy finds.

IF YOU COULD WEAR ANY GOWN FROM A&BÉ, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE?

Much like my taste in music, my favorite dress changes with my mood. A month ago I was drooling over this amazing Hayley Paige pink number, but this week I'm crazy for the Jane Hill "Sienna".

CHILDHOOD NICKNAME?

My real name is Amanda, apparently a very popular name in the 80's. Mandi, with an 'i", was given to me after having five other Amanda's in my kindergarten class.

any pets?

Admittedly animal obsessed I am constantly begging my husband for a new pet. We currently have two rescue dogs, a whippet named Dobby, and a mutt that looks like a fluffy cotton ball, named Ellum.

ANY SUPER SECRET TALENTS?

Nothing anyone would be impressed by, but I am skilled in the art of organization.

WHERE YOU WILL FIND ME WHEN I'M NOT AT A&BÉ?

Wandering through vintage stores, out absorbing the beautiful nature in the PNW or traveling as much as possible.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING OR PLACE IN Seattle?

Seattle has amazing parks and an endless amount of things to do outdoors, picking my favorite would be impossible, but Volunteer Park has become a regular spot of mine to sit, take in the day and read.

WHY YOU WILL LOVE WORKING WITH ME?

I spent a decade doing hair and being involved in weddings. A job that oddly shares so many similarities; listening, understanding, here to make you happy and feel heard. I am a fashion addict and have an eye for details. And, I'm a girls girl and just love working in a place where I can use that to empower, encourage and support other women.
