Holly Carter | Contributing Beauty Editor

Current source of inspiration? I’m always inspired by everyday people-watching and just roaming the streets of NYC. It never gets old and each neighborhood has something unique to get my creative juices flowing.  

Favorite brand of denim? I’m all about democratic denim. I love my Seven for All Mankind and Veronica Beard high-waisted styles, but I also have jeans that fit me well from Target’s Universal Standard brand and dare I say, Costco.

What do you cook? Literally everything—chili, soups, chicken dishes, anything on the grill, roasted veggies, all kinds of cakes, cookies. I love cooking it all. Now I just need a kitchen to support my love. 

How would you describe your sofa? Practical and well-adorned with decorative pillows. I got it as a stand-in when I moved into my apartment with the plan of replacing it with my dream couch. Nine years later, I'm still on the hunt. I foresee something forest green and ridiculously comfy.

Skincare secret? Start young and be consistent. I was using Retin-A in my teens for acne which has positively affected my skin today. Two products I can’t live without: Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream and Biologique Recherche Lotion P50.

Sarah Gore Reeves | Stylist + Fashion Director

Current source of inspiration? Anyone who helps bring attention to the environment. Richard Phibbs and my mother Virginia Chipurnoi, who passionately give their time to animals at The Humane Society of NY.

On your vacation list? This year, Japan. I love the design of Tokyo and Japan.

Favorite brand of denim? Brunello Cucinelli.

What do you cook? Good pastas; I lived (on and off) in Italy.

How would you describe your sofa?  My sofa is Vitra. My husband is an architect and we like modern lines... but comfortable.

Skincare secret? I try to stay out of the sun. My friend and dermatologist, Dr. Neal Schultz' BeautyRx Skincare Tetrafoliant 10% Peel Pads, which I use every day.

Ashley Streicher | STRIIIKE Co-Founder

Current source of inspiration? Lately I've been collecting art books. There's something about the large pages that you can touch and turn yourself that's nice. I love going to art museums, and shopping the book shop afterwards. 

On your vacation list? Antarctica.

Favorite brand of denim? Levi's.

What do you cook? I prefer to bake. I love baking!

How would you describe your sofa?  Modern but cozy.

Skincare secret? Less is more.

Amy Zalneraitis | Staff Writer

Current source of inspiration? The 75-minute classes at Charleston Power Yoga. 

On your vacation list? The Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur.

Favorite brand of denim? AG.

What do you cook? My husband loves Mexican food. Homemade burritos keep my marriage strong. 

How would you describe your sofa?  A coveted chaise; everyone wants to get to it first!  With an oversized Pendleton blanket, and throw pillows for days.

What are you watching on TV? I love a good docu-series. I'm currently watching Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates, on Netflix.

Volta Voloshin-Smith | Illustrator & Animation Artist

Current source of inspiration? Cuisines from different cultures, specifically from Asia.

On your vacation list? Travel the entirety of Chile by car.

Favorite brand of denim? Gap.

What do you cook? Salads.

How would you describe your sofa?  Gray mid-century modern.

Skincare secret? Trader Joe's rose facial spray + CeraVe moisturizer.

Mimi Lombardo | Contributing Fashion Editor

Current source of inspiration? Lately, I'm in love with India. It's funny, because I’ve not been there in years, but I have a renewed love for Indian cotton prints, Indian gems, Indian prints. The culture is all about vibrant color and beauty, and I can't get enough. 

On your vacation list? Prague, Greece, Croatia, and more Paris, Paris Paris.

Favorite brand of denim? Seven For All Mankind. They get my body and I love the fit. Another favorite is Cos---skinny leg in raw denim.

What do you cook? I love cooking bolognese, or beef stew. I can make a mean broccoli rabe. Broccoli rabe never tastes as good in a restaurant.

How would you describe your sofa?  Sore subject. I’m looking for one now. The current sofa is cream in color, puffy, and amorphous in the back. I have another sofa in another room: a Duncan Phyfe family heirloom, given to me and my husband by my husband’s grandmother. I had it reupholstered in Knoll fabric.

Skincare secret? Lancôme Génifique Night Repair Cream and Génifique Youth Activating Serum. i use Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion during the day. And I don’t wear foundation. It looks overtly fake, like a doll's plastic "skin."
