Quizzing the Cake staff: Abbey

Last month, we introduced you to Abbey, the newest addition to the Cake staff! Read her answers to our style quiz below to get to know her better. 

Name: Abbey Muse 

How long have you worked at Cake? A little over a month!

Who is your style icon? I have so many and they change depending on the day/mood. However, Linda Rodin (who I aim to be when I grow up), Leandra Medine, Erin Wasson, and Alexa Chung are a few that have consistently been on the list.

What is your favorite season for buying clothes? Fall! I love chunky sweaters, skinny jeans, and booties. 

What are a few of your favorite brands? I’m not a huge “brand” shopper but I never go wrong with Ace & Jig, and Rachel Comey makes really amazing shoes. At Cake, my favorite brands are A.L.C., rag & bone, and Elizabeth & James. 

What item is your “must have” for the season & how would you style it? My must have item for spring from Cake is the A.L.C. Joan top. It’s funky, cropped, and boxy (my three favorite things in a shirt).   I would keep it really simple and wear it with a midi skirt, skinnies, or even boyfriend shorts. 

When you aren’t in the store what can you be found doing? You can find me on campus, at the ski resort, or in my sewing room making dresses for my shop on Etsy!
