I'm Victoria, a native New Yorker and fashionista who likes to get the most out of my vibrant big city life with my limited young professional budget.
I believe that fashion is for everyone - no one's personal style is better than anyone else's. Fashion is a reflection of the self, a way to express your personality and feel confident in your own skin! Nobody is "too good" to shop at a lower end store - fashion is fashion and it can be found everywhere. I hope that through my edits you find some pieces that speak to you at a price range that meets any budget.
I also believe that fashion and lifestyle are very closely connected (and are all something you have to factor into your budget). So, you'll also find deals on food, sports, the arts, and other events in New York City on this blog. These are the kinds of "insider secrets" you'll love to share with everyone - your roommate, mom, boyfriend / girlfriend, or co-worker.
My passion for style and marketing has extended to the professional world where I have previously been hired by fashion & jewelry retailers Betsey Johnson, Erwin Pearl, and ASOS (USA) to run their social media campaigns. I have also previously worked at fashion tech start-up Have to Have where I developed their online content (blog, e-mail newsletters, and social media).
