    "In my very first pitch meeting at Who What Wear, I pronounced Givenchy as Give-en-chee. I knew in my head I was pronouncing it wrong, but didn’t realize just how badly I butchered it until I did a quick google search at home, found the real pronunciation, and then quickly proceeded to bury my head in a pillow." -Who What Wear Editor

    "I got this new bra to impress a guy I had been seeing. It was fairly complicated, with a lot of straps and had to be removed over the head. When the time came for its debut, I proudly smiled, thinking I looked jaw-droppingly gorgeous. He stared at me in utter confusion and frankly said, 'I just have no idea what to do with that.' It was the last time I saw him." -Who What Wear Editor

    "The day I had my interview for Who What Wear it was like 95 degrees outside. I showed up early (as one does for an interview), and proceeded to overheat while waiting in my car. When I was shown inside I was seated atop a leather couch. The heat combined with the leather on top of the anxiety that comes with an interview all resulted in a sweat mark on their beautiful couch. To this day I don’t know if they noticed after I left, but I got the job, so I guess a little sweat never hurt nobody." -Who What Wear Editor

    "I have multiple 'dresses' in my closet that are actually just slightly-longer-than-normal tops—but I wear them with flat shoes, so it’s okay, right?" -Who What Wear Editor

    "Instead of a strapless or backless bra, I wear these boob lift stickers whenever I can't wear a normal bra. They keep your size the same, but give you a nice lift and some security that you'll stay in place." -Who What Wear Editor

    "In high school, I found out that I was known in some circles as the girl who always wears pink. In retrospect, I guess did wear that pink polo shirt a little too frequently." -Who What Wear Editor

    "I know I should care about VPL, but honestly, comfort is more important to me!" -Who What Wear Editor

    "One time I got stuck in a dress in the Zara fitting room. I panicked quietly, and after a failed attempt at getting myself out of it, had to ask the attendant to come help me." -Who What Wear Editor
