Beyond her directness, poise and sartorial savvy, it’s this 23-year-old’s fervor for the city that pegs her as a native. “I could never live in L.A. or Chicago,” she says laughing. “I need the craziness and the hustle in New York to get me going.” In the past four years of growing her insanely popular style blog, We Wore What (weworewhat.com), she’s accomplished what most early-twentysomething fashionistas dream of: making serious waves—and coin—in the industry. “Yes, brands like a celebrity or supermodel to give them clout, but if you want to sell a product and I Instagram it, you’re going to sell out,” she says of her curatorial prowess. She’s collaborated with Topshop and the Vintage Twin and earlier this year passed the 1 million follower mark on Instagram. Through it all, she exudes a casual sort of Soho chic that’s approachable but hard to replicate; while it may not have been her you saw stepping off the L train, it’s likely a gal who’s inspired by her.
