I grew up in sunny Orange County near the beaches and Walt Disney world. After years of trying to figuring out what I want to “be when I grow up” I found myself in graduate school for school psychology in San Francisco. I instantly fell in love with city life –the vibe, culture, creativity and the people. I have now lived in San Francisco for over 7 years. It is here that I have met some of my best friends, became highly independent, and met the love of my life –who I just married last November in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (yah beach wedding).
My two other loves are traveling and fashion. I have been fortunate enough to travel around the world. Travel has definitely intensified my addiction to clothes. In Paris and Italy I truly began to appreciate luxury design and quality stitching; in Tokyo I became fascinated with the Japanese’s obsession of fantasy and fun contrasted with their love of meticulous clean and modern lines; and then in Morocco and India my love of texture and color was re-born.

Living in San Francisco is insanely expensive so I created this site to share tips with other budget fashionistas. I believe pricey labels do not always equal style. Citygirlchic.net is a blog dedicated to budget conscious fashionistas who desire a fabulous and fun lifestyle for a fraction of the cost.
