I was born in Arizona and channeled my inner geek while studying in San Francisco, but am a New Yorker at heart and have finally made my way to the big apple! From 9-5 I work in merchandising and Style on the side, but when I do have a day off you’ll find me treasure hunting after brunch in my charming neighborhood (the west village) with my French Bulldog, Waffles.
I work hard: I have a dual MBA in marketing & management, have worked for big brands (Kate Spade, Jonathan Adler & Tommy Hilfiger), and even styled celebs like Katie Holmes, Emmy Rossum and Emma Kenney … But I play even harder and am always finding something to celebrate, usually in the form of a dinner party. I am constantly looking for my next big adventure; last year it was moving to NYC and now it’s growing Paper Doll Styling and Color Me Courtney.
My style is classic with a twist, as inspired by Audrey Hepburn, Zooey Deschanel, Blair Waldorf and Carrie Bradshaw. I also have a strong affinity for polka dots, love a good vintage piece and can never, ever say no to something sparkly. Above all, I am fearless when it comes to fashion and love to share my style with everyone interested via this blog.
Color Me Courtney is a bright place where I share my world, work, West Village and wardrobe while mixing my matches, experimenting with color and always dressing outside the lines.
