Erika spent a summer interning with the fabulous Whitney Port, working alongside the top creatives of The New York Times Magazine, and just recently dedicated three months to fast-paced and contemporary?leading online media site Refinery29.com. ?Yeah, it was a pretty amazing experience, and believe it or not, sometimes I think it’s actually easier to do better over there. They’re more open to giving you opportunities. If they see you’re a hard worker and you?want it, they’ll give you a chance.? You could say Erika got lucky, but she’s a potent lady. She set up her creative and fashion-forward blog two years ago, which she uses as a visual diary to enable her to share her creativity and inspiration with her readers. Although Erika is devoted to?fashion, she wants more than just a blog – she wants a business. ?I just completed my commerce and marketing degree. Fashion is what I love, but you need the business mind to complement it.? A lover of vintage and all things retro, her style varies from day to day.
