Ebony is an East coast girl living in a West Coast world. Originally from Norfolk, VA Ebony now resides in Phoenix, AZ with her husband, daughter and 2 fur babies. Her affinity for fashion comes from the influence of the amazingly stylish women throughout her life. She has drawn inspiration from strong women in her life to develop her own sense of expression.

Her love for thrifting and fashion has inspired her to share with the world a curated closet of affordable unique clothing and accessories on Poshmark and eBay.

Starting in July, Ebony will also be writing our monthly horoscope segment. We can’t wait to see what the Ebony and the stars have in store for us!
