Everyone has interests outside of work, but not everyone knows how to turn their side hustle into a successful business. But it’s safe to say that Sierra Tishgart, co-founder of cookware brand Great Jones, knows a thing or two about the transition. In the newest episode of Second Life, Tishgart tells Hillary Kerr how she went from being a Teen Vogue intern to becoming an entrepreneur in home cookware (along with her childhood best friend).
While in college at Northwestern University, where she studied journalism, Tishgart achieved the ideal scenario: having her dream job already secured before graduating. At the completion of her Teen Vogue internship back in 2012, she was offered a position as an online features editor, which she did part-time at first while finishing school. While writing about everything from the presidential election to the Olympics, Tishgart was developing her side interest: food.
“I was realizing that the food world was really quite antiquated [in regards to] how they spoke about women and the opportunities that were available for women,” Tishgart told Kerr. “It was right at the height of that moment that men got to be these sexy restaurant chefs,” she said, adding that female chefs didn’t seem to be getting the same attention.
Head to iTunes to subscribe to Second Life and find out how Tishgart made the transition to food writing at New York Magazine‘s Grub Street and eventually launching Great Jones.

Bella Hadid Just Endorsed the Controversial Denim Trend People Are Dreading
Bella Hadid has proven time and again that she can pretty much wear anything and look cool doing it. The same doesn’t really go for all of us, though, which is why certain trends become controversial. One of the most controversial denim trends in the game is low-rise jeans. As you know, they had their heyday in the early 2000s but were later replaced by more flattering styles—i.e., high-waisted jeans. But celebs and the fashion world have been hinting at their return, and although it’s been met with some (well, a lot of) resistance, it hasn’t really hit the mainstream again.
As you know, Bella Hadid’s influence on what the world wears is pretty strong. Time will tell if it’s strong enough to make people embrace jeans that hit below their belly buttons again, but there’s no denying that she wears them well. On a side note, her sweater is a $60 Mango find. That may be an easier pill to swallow.

Meet Zara's Younger Sister Brand That Everyone Will Shop Today
Calling all Zara stans, if you shop the retailer just as much as we do (i.e., a lot) then this one’s for you. You may know about Zara’s sister brands like the equally as on-trend and affordable Stradivarius and Bershka since Zara’s parent company, Inditex, owns a handful of cool Spanish brands. However, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of another of its other sister brands, Pull&Bear, since it wasn’t sold in the U.S.—until now, that is.
Pull&Bear just launched its e-commerce in the States, so now we can finally shop the Zara-adjacent brand that our Spanish and European fashion friends already knew about for a while. We’re calling Pull&Bear the little sister to Zara because its offering skews a tad more trendy and youthful than good old Z. Soon you’ll be shopping here for fun-loving pieces like tie-dye tees, bucket hats, and all the chunky-soled shoes your heart could desire. And everything is slightly more affordable than you’d find at Zara, too, so add that to the list of reasons to check out the newest Inditex brand in town.
To get a taste of all the cool things on offer at Pull&Bear, keep reading to shop our edit and then wait patiently because we just know all the fashion girls will be wearing the brand soon enough.
