POP SOUK – Shopping Joy with Alicia

In less than 24 hours we’ll be sipping cocktails and seeking out the most fabulous fashion finds with Ladyfag and friends at Pop Souk.  Tomorrow afternoon New York’s most talented designers, artists, and nightlife fixtures turn Greenhouse into a two-floor shopping extravaganza with Lady’s favorite DJs spinning and iconic London designer Pam Hogg selling rare archival pieces. Come explore, refresh your spring wardrobe, and say “Hi!” We can’t wait to see the look on your face when you see what we’ve got – just ask Alicia, who’s trained her eyes to spot for the perfect piece from across the room with routine bird watching:

Please state your name, current location, and occupation: Alicia Hogan, Williamsburg, Oak’s Retail Director

And your current preoccupation?

I am currently preoccupied by the birds that come to my bird feeder every day. They all have different personalities and looks…. the male Blue Jay is really, really loud and pushy. All the other birds leave when he comes by because they would rather starve then deal with him. His girlfriend is quiet… you start to feel bad for her because you know she has to deal with that shit at home. The Finches run in packs, and the Cardinal couple is really chic.

Why did you choose to participate in Pop Souk and what are you looking forward to? I like to see people’s reaction to finding things they genuinely find amazing….. It’s so much more satisfying then just selling your things on the inter web or dropping it off somewhere. I am looking forward to seeing all my friends having fun! Duh!

What can we expect to see from your closet? I am selling all sorts of clothing. I have worked at OAK for about 6 years now and have quite the collection. Fifth Ave Shoe Repair, Vibskov, Bernard, Grey Ant, Complex Geometries, Wang…. That’s really just a few names though. It’s gonna make people really happy.

What’s the one piece in your closet you would never give up? I have a few of those pieces…. But definitely never my leather jacket… It completes me.
