I can honestly shop anywhere (especially online). I’m really into men’s wear right now. I like to incorporate it in my looks with a feminine twist. Minimalism is kinda my thing too.
8 a.m. : get pounced on by my cat. 8:20 a.m. : snooze my alarm. 8:30 a.m. : snooze my alarm. 8:34 a.m. : get pounced on by cat. 8:40 a.m. : get out of bed, feed the cat, make coffee and drink at least two mugs full. Flat iron my hair. Put on makeup. Throw on an outfit I planned in my head before I drifted away to sleep. Check Instagram (Instagram is my favorite). Grab an apple, my laptop, and my bag and I’m out the door and on my way to the L.

My grandmother used to make my cousins, siblings and I halloween costumes every year on her sewing machine. She also used to make my American Girl dolls (all 11 of them) really cute outfits. Her basement was FILLED with all kinds of fabrics, yarns, embellishments, you name it she had it. She actually taught me how to sew. So she really inspired me to get into fashion. As well as, all my life I had attended private school forced to wear a uniform that was the exact same as everyone else. I always envied public school kids and their ability to wear whatever they wanted so I also got into fashion that way its forever my Weekend Escape from uniforms.

Abby's favorite beauty productss

I don’t really have a beauty routine besides slabbing on some makeup to appear presentable to the world. Packaging definitely influences my beauty purchases! My boss at Nylon is super into beauty products and definitely has made me more aware of what’s out there and what to use. He’s always talking about his rituals with oils, sprays, and BB cream, so I have kind of been researching to find what would help my skin.

I used to cover my face with full coverage foundation that I absolutely did not need, looking back at pictures I looked like a clown. I guess you could say I’m into a more natural look these days with BB cream, browns on the eye, and chap stick on the lips.

I would really love to be a stylist. I find it so intriguing because not only do I have to understand my style and what I wear, but I have to understand the styles of so many other people I am dressing. Possibilities are absolutely endless. But I also have a desire to write. Maybe something in Editorial. I don’t know, nothing’s set in stone so I’m exploring all my options while I can!

Abby's favorites books

I love decorating! My furniture is either from my grandmothers attic or from my child hood room. A lot of the smaller items like my shelf, rug, and throw pillows are from Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie. I think it’s super important to make your bedroom as cozy and comfortable as possible. It’s my little get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. All of the plants make me feel like I’m back at home in farm land! I definitely recommend going to “junk” stores to find cute little nicknack’s. I’m definitely a nicknack kinda girl and have collected a ton over the years that are the icing on the cake in my room.

Abby Recommends

Ever since I moved to Brooklyn, I very rarely leave Brooklyn. I love my neighborhood and finding new places to go to. I go to Bushwick's Bakery pretty much every morning. They have really good coffee and REALLY good pastries. Our Wicked Lady (OWL) or Baby's All Right is usually where I end up by the end of the night. I'm really into finding new music to listen to so add alcohol good company to the mix and I'm there. Mary Meyer and Friends Vintage is right around the corner from me and I can't help stopping in and spending $$ on my way to catch the L. Worship Vintage and Collections Vintage are also amazing.
