#WCW: Sarah Collie

Sarah of District Damsel was there the day that Bubbles & Bloggers was born. We got closer when a few of us had a girls’ night that started at her apartment, and she became on of my best friends the day we got up at the crack of dawn to shoot fall clothes in 90 degree weather for Whistle & Wild. Over champagne, in her rooftop pool, we traded crazy college (and post-college) stories, compared our seemingly equally fabulous grandmothers, talked fantasy future weddings, and then split a veggie pizza. It was the perfect Saturday afternoon.

I also think she has the coolest job with Streetsense, and even though she’s slightly younger than I am, I truly look up to her. Her style is definitely more daring than mine (I can’t do plunging necklines, no matter how many times Kendall tells me I might be able to) but I totally dig how she can make budget pieces look like a zillion bucks.

8 reasons that you love your life

All of the people in my life who support and believe in me

That I live in a country where I have freedom to express myself without consequences

The recent “women supporting women” movement that I’ve been lucky enough to witness firsthand

I’m employed by a creative company whose work I feel a strong sense of pride about (and that lets me wear whatever I want to work!)

I’m dating and living with my best friend

I can support myself financially enough to live an urban lifestyle

Dogs and their unconditional love exist

7 essentials in your closet

Bodysuits, Converse sneakers, my moto jeans from Top Shop, black Steve Madden OTK boots, ankle strap heels from Lulus, an absurd fur vest from H&M, and my (p)leather skater skirt from ASOS

6 non-electronic things you can’t live without

The manfriend, puppies, urban life, chips & salsa, cheese, and family

5 people who have impacted your life

My parents, my blog squad, the manfriend, my business frat Pi Sigma Epsilon, and my colleagues at Streetsense (that’s like 500 people, but you get the idea!)

4 places you’d like to visit

Charleston, SC, Dubai, anywhere in Italy (I’ve been to certain parts before, but would go back in a heartbeat!), and Thailand

3 unpopular opinions you have

I’m a vegetarian, so meat-lovers tend to think I’m crazy! This might depend on who you ask, but I believe that dogs are better than cats (although kitties are growing on me.) I truly don’t get the hype about Snap Chat – maybe because I’m terrible at taking selfies?

2 things that scare you

Not making an impact on the world and losing a loved one.

1 quote to live by

“Be the person your dog things you are.” I’M A CRAZY DOG LADY AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE MY OWN DOG!
