From sunny Texas to California, and now based in New York, this hardworking style guru is more than just a blogger. After studying fashion design at Parsons The New School and Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Emily’s career has included amazing creative stints, such as styling some of the top celebrities alongside Rachel Zoe, and is currently designing at Phillip Lim. With an enviable fun and flirty style, Emily’s wardrobe is filled with daringly colorful pieces that only she can pull off so well. She makes the most of her 24 hours in a day, all while keeping it real and recharging on Mexican food.
