Backpacks | Back-to-School

#WSW | White Shirt Wednesday Backpacks aren’t just for back to school — nothing has improved the life of the style-conscious New Yorker as much as the fashion backpack trend. As a freelance designer I often carry my office on my back and after I had to say goodbye to a shoulder tote about two […]

NYFW | Street Style

Although everyone wants to make a statement during fashion week, I can’t stand the costume-y look. Fashion should flatter and emphasize your assets, not detract. To prevent NYFW from becoming the proverbial Coachella, where people use as little taste as possible, please consider your outfit choice before you leave the house. Here are a few people who got […]

#WSW | White Shirt (dress) Wednesday

Sporty + Casual A few years back I read an article in Harper’s Bazaar outlining a day in the life of Vera Wang. Like many other designers, she focuses more of her creativity on designing beautiful clothes than on her own wardrobe choice from day to day. If I had to define my uniform it […]

NYFW | My Style

It was a chilly September morning when I left my apartment at 6:00 am! Despite the spring vibes at the shows, I opted for a more temperature appropriate transitional outfit. I layered a classic black leather moto over a neutral navy culotte jumpsuit. To complete the look I belted an ombre scarf at the waist and […]

NYFW | Behind the Scenes

 Wow. Amazing. That’s all I can really think to say to describe this day. It is crazy how so many people in the New York fashion industry work so close to the action without actually getting to experience it. That all changed today. After weeks of pulling favors, I didn’t just receive a ticket to the SS16 Tommy Hilfiger […]


#FashifyMeTravels x Mexico City On a recent trip to Mexico City, I fell in love with the artistic and colorful neighborhoods of Coyoacán and San Angel. My husband and I spent an entire day exploring the museums and colorful markets in these two adjoining neighborhoods, and of course sampling an authentic taco (or two) wherever we could. […]

Perfect Palm Print

After seeing a recent cover of Women’s Wear Daily featuring a tropical palm motif, I was inspired to pull a few things from my wardrobe and put together an outfit for the end of summer. I plan on wearing this to an upcoming casual outdoor afternoon wedding (hence the wedge shoe choice), but this outfit could […]

My Happily Ever After

  Two years ago on August 18th, I married the love of my life at my childhood home in the Willamette Valley. It was important to have our Pacific Northwest rustic roots present in our nuptials along with our love of family and friends woven into the wedding. Truly a DIY wedding, from the decorations and flowers and […]

Central Park West x FashifyMe

Cut.It.Out Although none of us what Summer to end, the nights have started to feel a little cooler here in NYC. It is time to start thinking about re-introducing some light weight sweaters into your wardrobe.  A delicate, airy sweater is a key transitional piece. Enter Central Park West, a women’s contemporary brand that focuses on […]

Fringe Benefits

With the summer season comes music festival season! These days, festival fashion is not just for burning man, you can adapt your boho vibe for a day in the city too. Flower crowns and frayed cut-offs might be a little over-kill in midtown but one of my favorite festival staples is fringe. Fringe has been a […]
