From as far back as I can remember, I have always had a strong love for clothing, fashion, shopping; anything that relates. My grandmother, who has 3 daughters, 5 granddaughters, and is now the proud “GG” (short for great grandmother, typical but adorable coming out of the mouths of toddlers) to 4 great granddaughters, is a fashionista in her own right, and I think it’s safe to say I get it from her. The adoration and obsession for this magical world didn’t fall short on my mother, or skip over my sister either, so you can only imagine the closet space that has been battled over, and the shopping trips that we’ve experienced.
Since graduating college in December 2005, I have owned a women’s clothing boutique in my home town of Setauket on eastern Long Island with my sister and my mother, relocated back to upstate New York to eventually marry the man I began dating the first month of my freshman year of college (and after many tumultuous years, we were kids after all), opened a spa, salon and boutique all under one roof with an amazing business partner by my side, enjoyed watching my cute, stylish, spunky two year old daughter Layla follow in my footsteps, and started a personal styling business. I’m a libra-born to be all over the place.
So here I am, today, wanting to introduce myself. I still get a rush every time I walk into a store, I live for layering, my personal style can be best described as bohemian with an edge, and accessories are my jam; if loving arm parties is wrong I don’t want to be right! I am following my strongest passion, here to offer my favorite style tips, trends, hacks, anything I have learned over the years and continue to learn. Ask questions and leave comments, I’d love to hear from you!
