Growing up on the East Coast, Los Angeles style blogger Kristie Woszczyna moved to The City of Angels in 2011. While pursuing her degree in Business Administration, she started her career in Fashion PR and working in showrooms in DTLA. Having a passion for writing, and a love for fashion, she decided to combine the two and created A Girl in LA in 2016.
I would never leave home without… my cellphone.
I stay fit by… eating healthy, running, and strength training.
In my spare time I… like to explore new places, cook, layout by the pool, go to the beach, shop (obviously), read, listen to music, go out with my friends, and spend time with my boyfriend.
The first thing I do in the morning is… drink a Red Bull and read my emails.
My style inspirations are… Zoe Kravitz, Serena Vanderwoodsen, Vanessa Hudgens, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kate Moss.
My favorite labels / designers are… Henri Bendel, Revolve, UO, Dolls Kill, Wildfox, Forward by Elyse Walker, Rag & Bone, Chloe, Planet Blue, Mara Hoffman, Rails, Wasteland, Blank NYC, Current/Elliott, Tarina Tarantino, For Love and Lemons, Nasty Gal, Tory Burch, Sam Edelman, and vintage pieces.
The one thing I’ll let myself splurge on is… a unique jacket, or anything vintage that I fall in love with.
If I had to describe my style in one word… I wouldn’t be able to. I go from boho, to grunge, to polished, to girly. It changes daily.
My guilty pleasure is… binge watching on Netflix or Plex.
My favorite food is… Acai bowls, avocado toast, and truffle mac & cheese from Lemonade.
My beauty essentials include… La Mer under eye cream | Dermalogica SPF Moisturizer | Smashbox Primer | Nars Skin Tint | Nars Concealer | Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer | NYX Highlight & Contour Palette | Urban Decay Eye Palette | Kat Von D Tattoo Liner | Smashbox Lash Primer | Dior Mascara | Lime Crime Highlighter | and Tarte Eye & Cheek Palette.
My favorite musicians / bands are… There’s too many to name, but I’m a huge fan of hip hop (especially 90s hip hop), alternative and classic rock, EDM (all genres), 70’s and 80’s, soul and disco...I’m pretty much love all music except for country.
My favorite places in LA are… Lemonade | Topanga Canyon | Bottega Louie | Grand Central Market | No Vacancy | Shutters on The Beach | Malibu Pier | Beauty and Essex and Abbot Kinney. I’m currently working on a blog post about my favorite places in LA.
One thing I’ve never done but would love to is… go skydiving.
My favorite areas of Los Angeles are… DTLA and Venice.
When it comes to fashion blogging, most people don’t realize… that it's time consuming and takes a lot of work. Sometimes I work 7 days a week.
My staple item is… my studded moto jackets, my G-Star denim jacket, my sparkly Bendel’s handbag, and my Vans—they all go with everything.
My favorite quote is… “Find what you love and let it kill you.”–Bukowski. (I have it tattooed on my arm.)
