“You have BRAINS in your head. You have FEET in your SHOES. You can STEER yourself in any DIRECTION you CHOOSE”…
Welcome to Soho2Noho! A blog about fashion and life from two different girls in two different cities. We are so happy you have decided to join us and follow us along on this journey! Soho2Noho started as just an idea being tossed around over a weekend glass of wine between two friends. After a few weeks of gabbing about it we realized we had something here.
The two of us met back at Springfield College when Karissa started dating one of Ashley’s close friends, Robert. While we both went through that super awkward stage in college when it came to fashion, ( you girls all know what we’re talking about ) we both quickly grew into our own unique fashion identities. A few years after college, Ashley ended up leaving Massachusetts and moving back to New Jersey to take a job in fashion with Vera Wang in Midtown Manhattan and later on took a job at Rent the Runway in Soho where she works today. With Ashley in Soho ( NYC ) & Karissa in Noho ( Northampton MA ) the concept of blogging from two different cities, ways of life and different fashion perspectives made total sense. Your go to fashion friends are here to stay!
We want this blog to be our way to connect with our fashion friends, not only about what’s in-style, the latest trends, and who wore it better, but also about fun recipes we’ve tried ( Some successful… but many failed attempts that even we wouldn’t feed to Ashley’s dogs Tucker & Wallie who you will meet soon! ) but we will be sure to share the experiences either way! We will gab about places we have gone, and the family & friends who make us the fashion loving, shopping addicted girls that we are.
We know that most blogs do not include many posts about personal experiences with loved ones, but we believe these stories, along with our fashion tips are what make us who we are and what brought us here to you. We love our friends like family and our families are some of the best people we know, so we want to make sure we include their stories along the way. We love fashion and everything that goes along with it: from makeup, new cosmetics, and good hair extensions to sunnies, tote bags, and a good pair of jeans, and now we can share that love with you. We hope you all enjoy and come back often to keep gabbing along with us!
