Last Thursday we met 24-year-old Threadflip community manager, Anika Namkung, at the company's re-launch party (celebrating their new space) in the Dogpatch.
Among a sea of fashion lovers and shopaholics, Anika's simple (yet striking) look really caught our eye.
What she wore: Zara tank; Saks Fifth Avenue pants, gold chain and leather tassel necklace, Pour la Victoire "Beyonce" black leather pumps, all purchased from Threadflip; Topaz and gold ring, gift from mother; Essie manicure in "Wicked," and OPI pedicure in "Malaga Wine," from KT Nails on Polk; Haircut from Jayne Matthews at Edo.
"My first ever trip to NYC is in September," said Anika. "I'm vsiting my BFF at Colombia and maybe sneaking into a Fashion Week party or two–I'm so excited."
Her must-haves: Burt's Bees lip balm, Stila liquid liner, Clarisonic and (local brand) Sequoia Beauty's face oil. Also, lots of veggies, tons of water and less gluten.
