Already Pretty, a style and lifestyle blog penned by Lee-friend and Minneapolis blogger Sally McGraw, is one of our favorite sources for all things trending, flattering and comfortable. But more importantly, Sally’s writing stands for body-confidence and female-love that are sometimes missed in other fashion sources. Sally continues to present a wonderful Midwestern style with extreme poise and assurance that makes any reader want to knock on her front door for a personal styling session (or even a hug).
Sally recently hosted a Style Party in Minneapolis on behalf of Lee, featuring Lee’s latest lines of Curvy Fit and Easy Fit products. She invited her style-conscious friends from the area, and even a few reader winners for a one-on-one meet and greet. In addition to writing Already Pretty, she is an ongoing contributor to the Minneapolis Star Tribune and The Huffington Post and has been covered by Lucky, Glamour, Redbook, More and MTV Voices. We recently asked Sally a few questions to learn what inspires her to do what she does (and does so well).
What is your favorite part of being a stylist and blogger?
Helping women understand their bodies, build confidence and acknowledge their unique beauty! I believe that body knowledge gained through explorations of personal style can foster self-love and self-respect. Although I adore style and fashion, I honestly don’t care what anyone wears, ever. I just want women to feel fabulous about how they look so they can stop worrying and get on with the work of their lives.
What blogs do you find inspiration from?
What is your favorite trend this fall? Coming up this spring?
For Fall: Leather. I think I currently have four pairs of leather/pleather pants in rotation, and more leather jackets than I care to admit.
For Spring: Slouchy pants. I still love my skinnies to death, but also enjoy mixing it up. Boyfriends and slouchy pants are a comfy, fun alternative.
What inspired you to get involved in the fashion industry?
