Hey! I’m Danielle — a retail/e-commerce entrepreneur, fashion and beauty director, writer, model, consultant, and creative. I enjoy discussing any of the above be it one on one, on a panel, or even on social media. I get excited when I can share my style, fashion and beauty knowledge and history as well as give my idiosyncratic perspective to my readers and online family (I don't like the word "followers!"). I love collaborations and partnerships that align with my passions and interests. I believe that collaboration is the future of business and helps to increase productivity, expand impact, and drive change.
