We owe you a huge apology. We have taken this last year to revamp, and that meant putting a few things on hold. We have had a lot of change here at Model Citizens. From bigger and more bountiful NYC trips, to developing an online store, to new ownership- it has been a BIG year. But the blog is back baby. Call me old school, but there's something about reaching out to our clients that I just love.
First of all, for those who don't me- i'm Mari-Lynn, but my friends know me as M-L. I have been involved with Model Citizens since it's first year of operation (7+ years ago!!!). I am terrible with names, but I don't forget any of your faces- and it's likely i've met most of you! If we haven't met yet, let's fix that. I'm around the shop Tuesday-Saturdays. If i'm not in, i'm likely off researching, sourcing and buying the treasures you'll find in the shop. Stop in and say hi! If i'm not there, leave a note :).
In January of this year I switched roles from Operations Manager/Buyer to Owner. What an exciting time! The previous owner and my old boss happened to become my best friend. So yes, starting my little part time job at MC 7 years ago has really paid off. I love the world of fashion and style, and I believe in the business of resale. I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to take this business to the next level. We have been so lucky to come this far in such a short period of time- and we know we have the best clients and staff there is. So, on that note. THANK YOU! Hugest, deepest, sincerest, chocolate-iest thank you to each and every one of you who've purchased a designer dress, happened upon the perfect vintage shoe, attended any of our events, read any of our articles, voted for us in any contests we've participated in. Wether you are a weekly regular, or you've only been once- we could not exist without you, let alone kick butt doing it. We have built and solidified a fantastic team here at MC. We are working hard and long to make sure to bring you the most unique, personal and fulfilling shopping experience in the city. You know how we roll, there's always something new, and there's lots coming your way.
As always, stay stylish and stay tuned
