My Style Diary: Amy Rigdon

Another Monday, another summer style straight from NYC!Amy was a classmate who now works for Victoria's Secret PINK collection as a CAD Designer. Her job duties include creating CADs for both intimates and lounge spec packs (which are very detailed packages containing information about the piece, such as overall design, colors, trims, placement of zippers, elastic, etc., cost, tags, and many other details), communicating with factories to make sure they received all the correct info to start production and creating the color palette and prints for the season! How awesome is that?!    Her summer wardrobe is simple but stylish, the mix of bright and soft colors is beautiful and not to mention the picturesque backgrounds ;)Here we go: Tank: H&M Pants: Necessary Necklace: H&M Green top: H&M Shorts: Forever 21 Wedges: Aldo Top and belt: H&M Pants: Mango Wedges: AldoNavy top: NecessaryMint…
