Fashion Talk with Trinh Pham: Interview with Sexy Dresses

Sexy Dresses is an online retailer that carries an array of fashion-foward dresses for a great price. With everything from cocktail dresses to bandage dresses, Sexy Dresses has it all. Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with Trinh T. Pham, the marketing director of the store. Here is what he had to say...

(Q) Hello. How are you? Tell me a little more about SexyDresses.com...

I am doing very well, that you for asking! Well, SexyDresses.com is a place where women visit to find that perfect dress! Whether it’s for a baby shower, a high school prom, or a birthday celebration, we strive to make it a one-stop shop for dresses and shoes, which is why, carry a selection that will accommodate events of all types, but more importantly women of all ages! Aside from what we carry, we want Sexydresses.com to feel as if you’ve got a friend that will give you the most honest advice; it isn’t about just making a sale or doing a job then going home we have available chat stylists that love to give advice on what dress will accommodate which shoe, and phone representatives that are there to make any last minute order changes or assist a customer in placing an order. We want the customer to feel like they’ve got a buddy on the other end.

(Q) When it comes to the Sexy Dresses, you offer some of the hautest fashion couture for less. I have to ask, what does fashion mean for you?
Definitely! For me, fashion is fun! The good thing about the aesthetics of fashion is that it’s universal. Fashion doesn’t know race, it doesn’t know gender. Yes, its articles of clothing, but the clothing doesn’t define you, it enhances you! I feel if your personality is reflected through your style and clothing, then it shows it shows in the way you walk, and in the way you talk. We do know fashion can get a bit out of hand sometimes, girls will buy the next hottest trend, just because Rihanna wore it to the Cannes film festival or Kim Kardashian looks good in it, but you gotta’ ask yourself, are these high waisted shorts, or $150 pair of wedge heels who you truly are? If not, take it off and start over! That’s the good thing about fashion; you can always experiment until you find out what’s truly you.

(Q) Fashion trends tend to change frequently, as they vary upon both psychographic and demographic factors. I have to ask, what are the most popular trends right now?
Hmm, I feel that is quite difficult to pin point, since fashion trends are ever-evolving. One minute the high-waisted shorts are in, then the next floral everything is in. But for the sake of this interview, I’d say midi length dresses, sexy 2-piece sets, prints, and last but not least bandage dresses.

(Q) You have everything from bodycon and bandage dresses to classic sequin styles to various lace pieces and more. What is your biggest sellers right now? Tell me a little more about Sexy Dresses most popular dresses...
At the moment, our bandage dresses, as well as, our 2-Piece crop top and skirt sets are what’s really hot! We base our styles on not only what’s trending, but really, we base our styles on what our customers want, and even what they’ve actually asked to see! Which is another reason why we love our clients, we love that they are vocal and not afraid to ask for a certain style or other sizes, and we definitely encourage that!

(Q) It's a well known fact that sizes vary upon brand. If a woman shops on SexyDresses.com, how can she determine what size is right for her?

That is a good question! We definitely know that sizing uncertainty and inconsistencies are one of the main reasons why women or anyone for that matter refrain from shopping online, but we try our best to keep our sizing as consistent as possible, however, we know it may vary depending on the style, the cut, and materials used which is why we encourage our customers faced with a sizing dilemma to utilize one of our many contact features to get in touch with a stylist or a representative to inquire further.

(Q) You are always offering an array of incentives. You have sales often. I have to ask, when are your biggest sales?
Who doesn’t love a sale right? I would say our sales are random, but we have our major sales during the holidays, like for instance we had a $9.95 blowout sale on a large selection of items for Black Friday. But we try to make our sales unpredictable which is why we encourage our customers who love a good sale to sign up for our newsletter so they are the firsts to know!

(Q) For all of those fashion fanatics and enthusiasts reading this interview, what would you like them to know about SexyDresses.com? What is next for the store?
SexyDresses.com is still a growing company, we pride ourselves in providing quality products at affordable prices, but that is only from a business standpoint. What we want really care about are our friends, we want our customers to feel like they’ve got a friend on the inside, someone they can ask for advice or share their insecurities with. I know I’ve said that before, but I can’t stress that enough. We not only want our clients feeling like a million bucks when they slip on that Sexy Dress, but we want them to walk away satisfied with the entire transaction, and not just the dress. If you haven’t made up your mind on which dress to choose, chat with us! If you want a live-rep to assist you in placing the order because you don’t feel comfortable doing it, give us a call! And if we’re not there, leave a message! Messages will always be returned.

I feel our superb customer service and happy customers are what makes our company not good, not great, but AWESOME!
