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, layout by the pool or at the beach, shop (obviously), cook, listen to live music, and spend time with my boyfriend and friends.
The first thing I do in the morning is… drink a Red Bull and check my emails.
My style inspirations are… Zoe Kravitz, Serena Vanderwoodsen, Vanessa Hudgens, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kate Moss.
My favorite labels / designers / shops 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, Hidden Treasures, and vintage pieces.
The one thing I’ll let myself splurge on is… a unique jacket, a Bendels handbag, or anything vintage that I fall in love with. Okay, so there’s more than one.
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 90’s TV shows and spending a day at the spa.
My favorite food is… Açai bowls, avocado toast, and truffle mac & cheese from Lemonade.
My beauty essentials include… La Mer under eye cream | Dermalogica SPF 50 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 Tom Ford Eye & Cheek Palette.
My favorite musicians / bands are… I’m a huge fan of hip hop (especially ‘90s hip hop), classic rock, EDM (all genres), indie, 70’s and 80’s, soul and disco...I’m pretty much love all music except for country.
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.)
