Meet the Founder of a Girl in LA
Growing up on the East Coast Kristie Woszczyna moved to Los Angeles 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, Vanessa Hudgens, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kate Moss.
My favorite labels / designers are…Nasty Gal, Chaser Brand, Wildfox, VidaKush, Rebecca Minkoff, Tory Burch, Sam Edelman, Jeffrey Campbell, Miu Miu, Balmain, House of Harlow, Tarina Tarantino, Gypsy Warrior, Planet Blue, Topshop, DimePiece LA, Ella Moss, Alice and Olivia, For Love and Lemons, Child of Wild, Henri Bendel, Kate Spade, Matthew Williamson, Sass and Bide, Alexander McQueen, Rails, Joyrich LA, Jeremy Scott, Supreme, H&M, Free People, 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…dessert from Bottega Louie.

My favorite areas of Los Angeles are…DTLA and Venice.
My favorite TV show is…right now, Big Little Lies.
When it comes to fashion blogging, most people don’t realize…that it's time consuming and takes a lot of work.
My staple clothing item is…my Topshop moto jacket or my G-Star jean jacket—they both go with everything.
My favorite quote is…“Find what you love and let it kill you.”–Bukowski. (I have it tatted on my arm.)
