A taste of where it all started...
I learned to sew at a very young age. I’d beg my mom for fabric and then make myself clothing, pillows, and teddy bears out of it. Later, at Quaker school, I rebelled against the dress code by adding my own fashionable flair to the uniform. I got in trouble, but it was worth it! Then, in college I decided to concentrate on costume design, which merged together my love for theater with my fashion instincts.
Add it all together, and HonestlyKate was a no-brainer. I can’t wait to share my outfits and my secrets with you, and hopefully inspire other girls to curate their futures.
As an NYC girl, I’m still learning the ropes on a lot of things, like adulthood, business, and life in general! I want HonestlyKate to reflect my journey because I know so many young women in similar positions, and let’s face it, we all want to look good whether we’re on the subway or at a job interview. HonestlyKate lets me share my passions and fashions with you, not from a pedestal, but on your turf. We can all be fashionistas with a little inspiration, and I’ve got plenty to spare!
The “honestly” in my name definitely isn’t a coincidence, because HonestlyKate is all about authenticity. The brands I feature are all meaningful brands that I love and think you will love too.
Fun facts about Katie
I'm an actress, writer, and a devoted fashion enthusiast with a passion for all things interior design. I'm a total eBay addict, bargain shopper and I love to memorize the lyrics to every Broadway musical. I fully believe in mixing high-end designers with Forever 21. I'm a absolute product junkie, and I have an absurd amount of Drybar dry shampoo. If I were stranded on a deserted island, the one food I would bring is a buttercream filled Magnolia cupcake. If prompted, I can do a dead on Ja'mie King impression (HELLO, Summer Heights High!). At a very young age, my mom taught me how to mix and match the high and the low and I hope this blog inspires you to create and curate your own high and low!
