It Girl of the Month (May Edition)

This month we are obsessing over Nylon's Style Director Dani Stahl. Her eclectic style mixed with her dire need to always stand out have completely won us over. She is more than a New York "It" girl. She loves to have a good time and is more interesting than most faces among her social circle.

Who she is: Dani Stahl, born and raised in NYC. Now lives on the Upper East Side. She has been named by numerous people "The Most Fun Girl in NY'

What she does: She began as an intern at Elle, worked her way up to Fashion Assistant at Vogue then had a stint as an executive assistant at Nylon. Her hard work and motivation (not to mental impeccable creative eye) eventually led her to the job of Nylon's Accessories Editor. She now has the much coveted job of Nylon's Style Director. She also designs jewelry for Lia Sophia.

Why we love her: She diverged from the normal fashion industry path by switching over to the edgy Nylon Magazine. This girl does what she wants, wears what she wants, and typically says what she wants. She definitely does not blend in, and we can't help but watch her Nylon TV clips when we are having some mid-day boredom.

On her style: She loves sequins, bright colored tennis shoes, loading on the accessories (obviously) and anything else that stands out.
