I’m a former advertising professional who recently quit my corporate job to pursue my dream of being a full-time fashion blogger. As a person who’s made safe choices all my life, I knew it was time to step outside my comfort zone and dive head-first into a scary but exciting adventure. So far I’m loving it! I now have the freedom to devote 100% to my blog and my passion for style, and I couldn’t ask for more.
I believe that personal style can be the truest expression of oneself, and I hope that my blog inspires you to find your own individual sense of style. My love for fashion, particularly vintage, comes from borrowing my Mom’s clothes as a teenager and finding new ways to style them with the latest trends of girls my age. I love mixing high and low, vintage and new, and throughout this blog I share my passion for discovering unique pieces and tips on how to find them.
My motto is always stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd. I’m so excited to embark on this style journey with you, and let’s approach every day as a chance to wear a new outfit!
