Meet Marissa. How amazing is this picture! Love the background and Marissa's outfit!

This is one of my favorite spreads Marissa did capturing the brand
Happy Friday! I am super excited to introduce you to Marissa Rosenblum, Senior Fashion Market Editor of Seventeen Magazine! Marissa and I have worked together for many many years so I wanted you all to be able to learn more about her hard work behind Seventeen Magazine and how awesome Marissa is by checking the Q&A below.
I grew up reading Seventeen Magazine and still do! When my line first graced the pages of Seventeen Magazine I remember calling my sister and ran over to show her the spread just like we would do growing up. Thank you Marissa and Seventeen for capturing my brand and other brands the way you do. You create great style and tips and show young girls how they can interpret trends off the runway at affordable prices. You were and are the pioneer to this concept.

1. What is your favorite part of your job?
"Working for millions of teens- they're a demanding group and I love them. Getting to see all the clothes that I think they love for next season first is exciting and coming up with story ideas I think they'll be into is a fun way to make a living."- Marissa


One of my favorite spreads showcasing my Romper!



2. How would you style your favorite Boy Meets Girl(R) item?
I would style the Zoe tee with high waist skinny jeans, fitted baseball jacket and a pair of bold heels to dress the look up. 

3. What causes and/or organizations do you support?
DOROT and Fresh Air Fund
DOROT helps homebound seniors by connecting volunteers to visit, help with chores and deliver packages during the holidays. 
Fresh Air Fund is something the whole crew at Seventeen loves to volunteer with. Every summer we head up to Camp Mariah and enjoy a day of outdoor fun with the city kids who get to experience summer camp. 
I'm on the young professional committee for the Fresh Air Fund's annual Spring Fling party (April 19th!) and am excited to help raise funds to get more inner city kids to experience camp this summer!

4. What is your favorite part of your job?
Working for millions of teens- they're a demanding group and I love them. Getting to see all the clothes that I think they love for next season first is exciting and coming up with story ideas I think they'll be into is a fun way to make a living.

5. What have you learned about the work force that you didn't know in college?
Be nice!

6. What is the hardest part of your job? Highlight one or all that apply!
a. lack of sleepp
b. long hours/crammed schedule
c.  find a good balance between personal life and work

Busy schedule. I have a lot of events to go to and it can be hard to cover everything even when you want to especially when working on story deadlines

7. Favorite all time movie quote?
"I'm shomer fn shabbos" from The Big Lebowski. I'm not, but I love that movie and when John Goodman's character says that. Also any line from Troop Beverly Hills, naturally.
 
8. Favorite thing to do in NYC/or city live in?
Visit the big tree trunk at museum of natural history. Find a new place to eat every weekend and bike ride down the east side of manhattan into red hook.

9. If you could live out of the country where would you settle down?
London. I felt a connection with the English neurosis after doing my work study at the Daily Mirror years ago and can always imagine returning.

10. What’s your favorite...
    -Website? Don't have a favorite but visit man repeller, gawker, and mashable daily.
    -Book? Anything by Sedaris except for Squirrel Seeks Chupmunk and American classics.
    -Gadget? iPhone
    -Guilty pleasure? Cheese. Lots.  All kinds except for smoked. Went to Anfora last night and was in heaven.
    -Midnight snack? See above.


11. What’s been your biggest splurge this season?
Miu Miu platforms and a well needed/not yet decided on vacation.

12. What’s your biggest purchase steal?
Everything! I am an expert at affordable shopping, it's my job. My whole wardrobe (sans shoes and bags) are sneaky low priced items, designer samples and vintage.
