Here’s a bit more about me:

So, where are you from? I’m a Midwesterner (Chicago/Cleveland), but now I live in New York.

How would you describe your style? Attainable, sophisticated and fun. You’ll constantly find me mixing prints and wearing unexpected pairings – like statement pumps and a vintage tee.  You can see more of my looks here.

Favorite item in your closet? The vintage Gucci clutch I thrifted for $40.

What’s your secret styling tip? Do you — confidence pairs well with everything.

Here’s a bit more about corals + cognacs:

 Why did you start your blog? Where I spend my weekdays from nine-to-five, style takes a back seat to a lot of other things. Since sartorial humor and an expertly crafted color-block can get lost in the boardroom, I decided to create a blog, where I’d hoped my writing, styling and arguably unacceptable collection of shoes would be better comprehended.

What’s it about? Life and style in New York City. I chronicle my fashion fixation with pretty pictures, self-styled outfits, shenanigans about town, etc.

How’d you think of the name? To be honest, the name just came to me and clicked. I’m a big color-blocker and a sucker for alliteration in writing. It just fit.

What’s the correct way to write it? corals + cognacs

And, okay. How do you pronounce it?  corals and cone-yaks.

Are you a full-time blogger? No, I work at an agency doing social media strategy.

What kind of camera do you use? A Canon T3i. By far my best-ever blog investment. I like the lens that the camera came with, but now I shoot almost exclusively with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. They’re relatively inexpensive and give you great depth of field (that blurred background look).

Don’t you feel weird taking photos of yourself in the city? Absolutely. Everyone looks at me like I’m insane – wouldn’t you? I’m aware that I look like an asshole, but I’m used to it by now. I’ve even had a homeless man wearing nothing but a socks and a denim button-down tell me how crazy I look. In the winter. Ironic, right?

Do you offer advertising and sponsorship packages? Yep! Shoot me an e-mail and let’s talk.

I still have a few questions. Can I get in touch with you? Sure, you can find me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.
