hi!

as a buyer i am responsible for choosing the product that we sell on the sites. i do this by seeing the lines ahead of time (usually two seasons ahead of time) and placing buys based off of trend knowledge, trend forecasting, budget, and OTB (open-to-buy). 

i am also responsible for negotiating discounts and shipping and payment terms with my vendors. the bigger the discount, the larger the margin (i.e the more money we make). i do weekly reorders on product that is selling well, and negotiate swapouts or margin assistance for items that aren’t moving. i oversee some of the styling to ensure the looks on the site stay in line with how i envisioned the line when i bought it. i help pull looks for the lookbooks as well. i work with marketing on strategies to push categories, new brands, and to generally create sales. i also update the instagrams (not all the time, just when on work trips or when i have a new exclusive i want you guys to see)

it’s a lot of work, and a LOT more numbers crunching than people think.. but i love what i do.

i might have missed some of what the job entails… but you get the gist!
