The Insider: Michelle Gattenio

image

When we started looking around for the perfect Of a Kind production assistant to manage every drop of content that goes on our site in our newsletters, we landed on Michelle Gattenio because we heard a rumor that she’d be willing to dress up as VMAs Miley in a flesh-colored bikini. Kidding! We hired her this summer because not only is she really good at her job but she’s also one of the most enthusiastic, upbeat, and charming people, like, ever. Proof below. —monica derevjanik

Q: Tell me about what really goes on in the Of a Kind offices…
A: I’m convinced that our operations assistant Keely and I should have our own reality TV show. There are just too many good one-liners coming out of our office.

Q: One-liners, eh? So if you had an “Overheard at Of a Kind” blog, what would be the most ridiculous post on there?
A: Ridiculous? I’m not sure. But the most common phrase would be “I can’t even.” I’m also fairly positive that Claire and Erica bought the domain name ICantEven.com [Ed: We in fact own ICantWith.com and CanYouEven.com].

Q: Is there a designer you’ve fallen in love with since starting at Of a Kind?
A: Oof. Well, to start, I’m obsessed with the Lizzie Fortunato girls. Claire and Erica each got a bag from the fall line and they are freaking amazing. I am also obsessed with the Morgan Carper cape that came out last winter. I think I literally have asked Keely 45 times, “Are we doing another cape this year? Do you think we’re going to do another cape? When can we pick out a pattern for the cape? Am I going to be able to model the cape and just keep it? How is this going to work?” [Ed: Watch your inboxes!]

Q: What does your desk look like?
A: WELL. Starting off, the rug is probably completely rolled under my chair. I am the only person in the office who can’t sit like a normal person—I’m constantly switching positions, so the rug always gets pulled under. There are about 15 different yellow, purple, and blue Post-its around my desk and a pencil holder full of Sharpies and highlighters. I also have a snack drawer that Claire just found out about a month ago, so that has become a beloved area. And now it needs to get replenished. But mostly just Post-its.

Q: What’s your current favorite YouTube video?
A: Embarrassingly enough, I am in a Miley Cyrus phase currently, and any kind of YouTube video pertaining to Miley Cyrus gets sent around the office. Everyone’s like, “Ok, Michelle, we get it, we get it.” So the Miley Cyrus/Jimmy Fallon/Roots thing is definitely high on the list.

Q: Which website just totally sucks you in?
A: Jak & Jil has the best photos ever. And I’ll always go on Buzzfeed just to see where it takes me—like “21 Sexy Halloween Costumes That Should Have Never Been Made.” There were things like a sexy taco, a sexy hamburger, a sexy corn-on-the-cob…

Q: Yikes! Speaking of Halloween, what are your plans this year?
A: I did suggest that we have Halloween in the office and floated the idea that I would be Miley Cyrus. Erica was like, “I mean, you’re going to be the one wearing nude underwear to work that day, so whatever floats your boat!” Katherin, our customer relations manager, suggested that we all dress up as each other. Every time Claire and Erica walk in the office, we’re like, “Oh, you’re so cute” and “You’re so pretty.” Actually, now that I think of it, they both probably think we’re being really creepy.

Tough question: Which is more exciting, a new fall coat or pair of boots? With this Italian wool, zip-front Morgan Carper cape in the running, it suddenly feels like a no brainer. And, considering how stellar it looks with beat-up denim, you’ll feel less compelled to invest in a fresh pair of jeans. —erica
