Hi, I’m Kat, an ethical & inclusive wardrobe stylist, fashion designer, writer, and blogger with a passion for inclusive fashion with a conscience. My first fashion love was a lavender sequin dress from Burlington Coat Factory when I was about four years-old. Purple was my favorite color because I loved grape flavor, and sequins were my favorite because sequins. Later, I made style decisions based largely on the same principles. My biggest fashion influence as a teen was the Delia*s catalog and it still rules my style brain eleventy years later.
RECORD SCRATCH LET'S GET ONE THING STRAIGHT RIGHT NOW:
Style isn't about size, shape, or income, and fashion police suck. I believe that your wardrobe should fit YOU, not anyone else.
I’ve been on the ethical & inclusive fashion wavelength since 2012, and in that time, I have dressed people of all walks of life. Whether it meant hunting for the perfect size 17 shoe for actor Chris Reed's red carpet look at the Sons of Anarchy premier, dressing body positive comedian Jenny Zigrino for her Comedy Central series, or helping a Mazcalita make looks from the rainbow of colors already in her closet, everyone gets the same personal "style therapy" from me. We all deserve to feel good in our clothes.
The more we feel free the express ourselves through dress, the better we feel –and I want everyone to enjoy that freedom. Whether you're an rock star going to the Grammys who loves bling or a stay-at-home mom who's mad for French gothic romance style, I'm all about finding looks that fit your lifestyle AND your passions.
BIO FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED TO COPY & PASTE FOR SOMETHING

Before I stepped out as a stylist, I was (and still am) a writer. I write whenever the mood strikes or someone wants to pay me for it :). My first published piece appeared in Spa Magazine from Bonnier Media in 2008, so I've been at this for a bit.
You can find my writing in ethical fashion blog Remake Our World, intersectional feminist mag Wear Your Voice, big guy's style blog Chubstr, good news site Kinda Kind, and The Owl Mag, to name a few. I was even a Managing Editor for a bit for a now-defunct site GeekGirlonTheStreet.com. One day, I think I’ll get the gumption to submit something to Refinery29 and Buzzfeed.
