The Signature Reversible Quilt
I’ve always worked in editorial, but mostly online. I started my media career (and met my co-founder, David!) at the Huffington Post back in 2007. From there, I went on to launch or oversee sites for different publishers, mostly in the lifestyle space—fashion, food, culture. I eventually landed at Conde Nast where I was the executive digital director at Lucky magazine (RIP). After that, I spent several years consulting for brands, platforms, and publications, such as Into The Gloss and Glossier, Instagram, Man Repeller, etc. I’ve always been interested in storytelling and community building—how what we think or want or love can be communal and how we can share that insight and intimacy with others.
I eventually realized that there was no world in which I was going back to work for someone else. Plus, and I’ve said this before so apologies for repeating myself but I think it’s important: at almost every company I’ve worked at in my professional history, there were incredibly talented, brilliant women running the show—and one level up from them, a man, or a C-suite of men, reaping the benefits. I wanted to be able to own and answer for the value of my work.
This coat is so versatile that it goes with almost anything: legging and exercise gear, jeans, dresses, heels, sneakers—I even wore it with jean shorts the other day when NYC finally hit 65 degrees. I’m partial to the green side but the citron-sorbet color is so special. I wanted it a little bit oversized—as my friend Jayna says, “Slouchy, not sloppy”—so I went one size up from my usual measurements, which was perfect.
