In An Ever-Changing City, A New Venture Brings Artists and Freelancers Together Outside the 9 to 5 Grind

It's fashion magazine writing 101 and at this point in our history entrepreneurial women deserve to be treated with more depth.

She’s stylish, witty, confident, and never fails to pull together an outfit that looks elegant and expensive from thrifted finds and repurposed materials. She wears big gold-framed glasses reminiscent of Iris Apfel and dons a different hairstyle almost every time I see her."
