My name is Brooke Smith. I am originally from Fremont CA (East Bay Area). I moved to Chico in 2006 to attended Chico State and after I graduated I loved Chico so much that I didn't leave.
BWO: How did you get your start as a Merchandiser for Chloe & Isabel?
I started with C+I in September 2012, barely a year ago. I was looking for something else to do beside my full time job, and I actually came across their Pinterest Page, and I fell in love with their jewelry, and I started to read about the Company and their mission I wanted to be apart of it. I also thought it was really cool that the Founder and CEO Chantel Waterbury is originally from Red Bluff.
BWO: What are you career goals either within Chloe & Isabel, or any industry at all?
C+I has great growth opportunities and they love to see their Merchandisers grow. In addition to being a merchandiser I also work full time as the Sales Manager for the two Marriott properties in Chico. So right now I am just doing C+I on the side, and wherever it takes me, I'll go.
BWO: What are some of the fun perks of working for Chloe & Isabel?
The jewelry is the biggest perk of course, but I think something else that I love is the people I have met while doing C+I. I have an amazing mentor and some of the other women that sell the jewelry have done some amazing things too. I love that I am able to do something that I enjoy, I love shopping and it has been great to help people shop. I also love the perks that we offer to people who host Pop Ups. There are a ton of contests and perks each month, and on top of that people that host a Pop Up get free jewelry too!
BWO: Where can readers purchase Chloe & Isabel products from you?
They can purchase directly from me or on my online boutique: http://www.chloeandisabel.com/
I'm also doing an online Pop Up Show and I will be donating my earnings to the American Red Cross to help the families and victims in Oklahoma. If you want your purchase to go towards that cause you can shop here: http://www.
BWO: What is your favorite piece you own from Chloe & Isabel?
One of my favorite pieces and my best sellers is the Retro Glam Torsade. It can dress up anything and it is gorgeous on anyone. I also am obsessed with all our deco items because they remind me of the Great Gatsby.
BWO: If you were a fruit what would you be and why?
I thought about this one for a really long time, and I'm still having a hard time coming up with an answer! I think I'm going to go with a pineapple. First they are the universal sign for hospitality. Also they are not exactly what they seem. They have tough outside, and you have to work a little through it to get to the sweet center.
BWO: What song would be the soundtrack to your life? Like, If I saw you on the street what song would start playin?
My favorite band is Mumford & Sons and I'd like to think that their music plays my entire life a little bit. My favorite song by them is Awake My Soul.
BWO: What is your style, favorite outfits or accessories you're totally into right now?
I have been obsessed with mint for the past 6 months, I seriously cannot get enough it. I also definitely jumped on the chambray shirt bandwagon as well. It so easy to wear with black denim, and add some jewelry to dress it up!
BWO: Where else can we find you online socially?
Instagram: Darkbginger and I just got a vine today since they released it for android!
