Hey y’all! I’m Amanda - a Kentucky bred, but Chicago based girl who loves fashion, food, my fiancé, Kollin, and our corgi named Wrigley! The Creative Brief started as a undergraduate project and turned into a part-time blog after some friends and family wanted to keep tabs on us after our move to Chicago. I use The Creative Brief as a platform to talk about fashion, lifestyle topics and the different ins and outs of my life.
When it comes to style I believe that every woman is a goddess who deserves the fashion and lifestyle she wants. I created this small space on the corner of the internet to be a place where women can find a great top, feel like their reading the words of a friend with their morning coffee or getting some inspiration for an event they have coming up. No matter why you read The Creative Brief, I’m so thankful you do!
As the Creative Brief is a part-time gig, I try to add content when I'm feeling inspired and love to share different parts of my life with my readers. I’ve added some common FAQs below and thank you so much for reading! xx
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. I attended The University of Kentucky and was a Delta Zeta. After graduation, Kollin and I moved to Chicago, IL and we’ve been here since 2015!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My style has definitely evolved over the years, but that is the fun part about fashion right? I would say I’m a combination of girly with a bit of edge. I love a high heel, but paired with ripped jeans or a ruffled dress and leather jacket. I love neutrals and easy basics you can actually wear everyday, but with that added touch of something extra.
WHY DID YOU NAME YOUR BLOG THE CREATIVE BRIEF?
The blog started from a school project at UK, where I studied advertising. In that field, it is common to use a document called a creative brief to outline a projects creative details and requirements in a short one pager. I was writing one for a class project while talking to a friend about what to name the blog and I love how it translated to anything creative - including fashion!
DO YOU HAVE EXTENSIONS?
I don’t! I cut my hair pretty short in 2015, but other than that I’ve had long hair my entire life and was blessed to have my momma’s thick mane. I’ve also never colored it which I think has kept it so healthy!
HOW CAN I SHOP YOUR OUTFITS?
You can always find my outfits on the shop page of the blog “Shop my Instagram.” I also use the Like to Know It app. It’s free to download for users and has all the content I share on Instagram, Facebook and the blog in one place where you can go directly to retailers to shop the items!
HOW DID YOU AND KOLLIN MEET?
Kollin and I met in middle school! We’ve known each other since we were 12 and got engaged in 2017 - you can read about that here!
Let's work together! For more information on how we can work together through sponsorships, collaborations, and partnerships, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the form below!
