That Girl: Kate Foley

You know when you see that same stylish woman in street style photos, on blogs, etc. and she always looks incredible? And eventually you start thinking, 'who is that girl??' Well Kate Foley is one of those women. Her outfits are always spot-on, unique, and terribly chic.

She's a New York transplant from England and got her start in the fashion industry working as a stylist. She became a buyer for Opening Ceremony, stayed on for three and a half years, and recently left the boutique to focus on freelance styling.

In an Elle interview from September, she spoke about sourcing product for OC. "The way we buy is different from the way other stores buy: It’s very emotional, and we’re willing to take chances. I don’t work with any specifications in mind when I’m looking for new brands. I just buy what I love."

I love her style because it's never predictable. She leans towards quirky and always pairs it with a red lip. Oh, and she can pull off a full skirt like no other. Finally, she much prefers a white dress over the LBD (she owns 25!). Wish you could raid her closet (or be her best friend)? Yeah, me too.


She's Got IT

“My dad always says, ‘Beat your last best score, and don’t worry about the person who beat you. Be the best you can be and don’t compare yourself to someone else.’”

She's smart, stunning, humble, talented, and driven. Yeah, she's pretty cool.
