A New Venture (See Jane Work)

You might have seen my tweets about my last day at work and a change in career.  I started this week at a men’s fashion start-up called the Trunk Club.  I will be doing styling and sales and it’s a major change from my past job and background (I was a finance major in college) but am totally excited to embark on this new venture.

Trunk Club aims to change the traditional shopping process for men who don’t love shopping or lack the time to do so.  We personally handpick clothes (similar brands to those found at Nordstrom) to send a guy based on their preferences and personality.  Because shipping is free (both directions), we treat it as a rinse and repeat process; if we didn’t quite get the style or fit with the first trunk, we’ll send another along.  There’s no risk to the customer as they only pay for what they keep.

If this sounds like something that your brother/dad/boyfriend/uncle/husband/best guy friend might be interested in, please shoot me an email at anna@trunkclub.com as I’d love to reach out to them.  I’m very excited to be taking a career change into the fashion industry (men’s fashion is fun to me, too–I love shopping for Eric) and can’t wait to see what the future brings.

Also, I will no longer need to adhere to a business casual wardrobe–but have no fear, I will still be wearing my pencil skirts and other work appropriate items; I’ve been wearing those clothes the past four years and don’t see myself quitting anytime soon.
