Hello, friends! My name is Sophie. I’m a writer/fashion and lifestyle blogger living in Portland, Oregon. My background is a little all over the place, so bear with me. I was born in London and raised in Prague, where I spent about 18 years before moving to Phoenix (for college), then Los Angeles, and now the Pacific Northwest.
I launched my career writing for the LA Post-Examiner. It was an unpaid gig, but at least I was establishing an online presence and building a portfolio. How did I pay the bills? Every customer service job you can think of — and I got fired from them all for having a “poor attitude.” I have no fucking clue what my bosses were bitching about.
I eventually ended up at OK! Magazine and its sister company Star Magazine. A year later I moved onto HollywoodLife.com, and two years after that I worked full-time at a marketing agency as their content writer. Now I spend the majority of my time working on Ride Coattails, which really is just a visual diary of my outfits, travels, and every day passions and adventures. Hey mom, if you’re reading this, you might want to take back all those times you called me “lazy.”
OK, enough about work. That shit’s boring. If I were a prostitute, I’d fuck for ice cream and cheese. I love all the animals but only have two dogs, two fish, and a hedgehog at home. I have a boyfriend — you’ll hear a lot about him, I practice hot yoga religiously, I’m obsessed with true crime and horror movies, I love the snow/cold/winter, I consider myself a social introvert, I’m completely shameless, and I’m the girl with the colorful personality and the monochrome closet.
