What do you get when you mix sunny warmth with style and spunk? A fashion loving sole with tons of bold energy. That combo perfectly describes our newest platform wedge Megan, who embodies the spirit of Lindsay’s friendly, sassy, and energetic gal pal Megan. A Director of Sales for Tracy Negoshian, Megan knows more than a thing or two about fashion, color, and combinations that dazzle…

 

Describe yourself in three words. 

Creative, Compassionate & Energetic

 

What’s the best part about your job at Tracy Negoshian, Inc.?

Working one-on-one with all of our whole sale vendors.

 

Favorite place to be seen?

Neutrals or Bolds?

A little of both!  This season, I am loving mixes of bright, bold prints paired with neutrals.

Audrey Hepburn!

 

Hobbies?

Traveling! I would have to say China is my favorite. Being able to experience a completely different culture was an amazing opportunity.

 

Short skirts or long dresses?

Long dresses - For me it’s all about comfort. I love that I can wear flats with a maxi skirt to the office and pair wedges (like Megan) with it for a dinner right after.

Megan loves pairing the Megan Wedge with her Maxi dresses for an easy breezy, go-to style.

 

Favorite romantic movie?

The Notebook

 

Ideal date night spot?

Most of my date nights are spent at the motocross track with my boyfriend Chris. It’s a new hobby he just picked up a few months ago.

 

Fav Megan shoe color? (neutral, black, or coral)

Of course Coral! I live in colors!

If you’re looking for a cozy sole you can go to for comfort AND great style, Megan’s the perfect combo. Now all you’ll have to decide is…which color & coordinating snaps, and which fabulous summer style from Tracy Negoshian? #decisionsdecisions
