Hi! I’m Marissa.

I’m simply here to showcase my own personal style and hopefully inspire others to be creative with fashion. Along the way I will also be sharing my travel adventures, so I invite you to come along!

Working the past several years in the fashion industry as the head designer of a jewelry and accessories line, I’ve decided the time was right to also start a blog of my own.

I’ve got experience in writing about fashion too – I’ve done Developmental Editing for multiple fashion books in the past so it seemed like a natural progression for my career!

While at fashion trade shows and market weeks around the country, buyers, designers and reps would often come up to me and ask me where I got my shoes, or my dress, or my hat.

These people, who were immersed in the heart of the industry themselves, were asking me where I got MY clothes?

Needless to say, I was always very flattered, and it is those sentiments that inspired me to share my style story with all of you.

And one more thing, labels are not important to me. If I like it, I will buy it. From Target to Temperley.

Even though I work in the same industry as countless high-end designers, I’d like to prove that looking chic doesn’t always have to cost a lot, and I am looking forward to showcasing some of my fashion “steals” with all of you!

This year I also plan on focusing more on lifestyle, healthy living, and home decor content as I begin a new phase of my life in sunny Southern California. Follow along to see what unfolds during this exciting new transition!

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you! I always love hearing feedback from my readers and encourage open communication, so please don’t hesitate to send me an email, tweet, or DM! 🙂
