Interview with Stephanie, from LuLu*s

Jeneba, of Haute & Styled, shares her pleasant interview with Stephanie Gaito, the Blog Relations Manager from LuLu*s. Enjoy!      


I recently caught up with Stephanie Gaito of the cult-followed LuLu*s, the online clothing boutique featuring emerging designers and some of the most coveted brands around. Stephanie very kindly dished about her personal style, her fave pieces in the shop, as well as her fave things happening in fashion right now.

LuLu*s Favs


When asked to describe the LuLu*s brand in three words or less Stephanie said it is “Feminine, flirty, and chic.” Right now, her most beloved pieces in the shop are this open back maxi which she said was perfect for summer or this other maxi dress. When it  comes to accessories she is really into statement necklaces right now, like this one because they are so fun. She loves the practicality of fashion and chose this floral print dress because it is an easy transition piece for your closet and can be worn day and night.

Industry Insight

Stephanie was also kind enough to share the single most important lesson she has learned working in the fashion industry, particularly in retail. She says:

“When you focus on great customer service, loyalty comes natural. LuLu*s put its customers first and put policies in place to make shopping with LuLu*s easy and fun! The customer experience is what is most important to us”.

Blogger Love

Stephanie loves the blogging community and found it hard to narrow down a short list of her favorite bloggers. Check out who made the cut of her current favorites!

All three of these bloggers are so bright and cheery and definitely have a similar style to the LuLu*s girl!

All About Austin

When asked what she loves about Austin, Stephanie had nothing but raves about the city known for being weird.  Stephanie:

“I love that Austin is so cool and full of music and culture! Every time we have been there we have received such a warm welcome! It is definitely one of raddest cities we have had the pleasure of visiting and we are happy to be a part of TxSC as well as the Austin community!”
