Allison Edwards, part of the Where Wear in the City twin duo, was immersed at an early age into a love for fashion, Hollywood glamour, and dressing the part! It all began with the styling of her grandmother-big bags, oversized sunglasses, and a fabulous pair of heels to a small stint during her younger years as a model; she’s always game to viewing the latest fashions whether it be on the runway or in a fashion magazine! With her calendar booking up as we speak, you can find this avid charity and event scenester around the town blogging and enjoying good company!
Having not only a passion for fashion, but a love for working with children, she holds both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Speech Language Pathology, working as a speech language pathologist in both Texas and California. She devotes her time to helping others and serving as a mentor and supervisor for other aspiring speech professionals.
When she’s not out saving the world, she enjoys working out, training for marathons (yes, she has done NYC marathon twice), playing tennis, attending cultural events, spending time with her beloved chi-weenie Coco Chanel, traveling, and shopping for a bargain of course! And who says you can’t have it all?
Courtney Edwards, the other half contributor to Where Wear in the City , enjoys the finer things in life…. fashion, nightlife and events. At an early age of playing dress up in her grandmother’s closet, as well as hosting parties for her friends, Courtney developed a love for being hospitable! With an undergraduate degree in Hospitality Administration and an MBA in Marketing, she combined her two passions into the works of marketing and event planning by day, to organizing and attending charity events by night! As an avid writer and blogger, this event planner knows all about creativity and hopes to one day own her own company with a philanthropic mission!
When she’s not out hitting the town, you can find her working out, training for marathons (has run NYC twice), playing tennis, going to concerts and cultural activities, traveling, shopping, and cheering on the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns. Sharing space with her chi-weenie, Audrey “Audie” Hepburn, she finds the comfort of writing and internet browsing at home her best muse. With a chai tea latte in hand, she is ready to take on the next event!
Emma Wilkiemeyer is one of our newest Where Wear in the City bloggers to share her passion for preparing delicious and healthy foods.
