A Connecticut-born Yankee with an Ozark accent, I was raised where mountain meets plain and only recently found my way back east. When not navigating New York City’s fashion waters, I run marathons and drink martinis, but never at the same time. Running keeps my pendulum swinging; this beautiful city shocks me awake. I write, and I write, and I write: about style and the sea, the eternal summer, the vestiges of my American youth - also, perhaps, some of yours. Welcome to Fresh Every Day.
