Fashion Icon Friday: Emily Schuman
Over the past few years, there has been a shift in the fashion world. The front row at some of NYFW’s biggest fashion shows has some new faces: bloggers. We mentioned Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller in a previous Fashion Icon Friday and today we’re looking to a different but equally well-known fashion blogger, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere. After graduating from Scripps College in California and before taking on her blog, Emily worked at Teen Vogue and Domino Magazine. What originally began as a way to document the things she loved turned into a full-time career and became the foundation for a New York Times Best Seller, conveniently titled Cupcakes and Cashmere: A Guide for Defining Your Style, Reinventing Your Space, and Entertaining with Ease.
Emily’s blog combines her love for two things- food and fashion. She highlights her classic and polished ladylike style in outfit posts, as well as shares tongue tingling recipes such as Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake and French Onion Soup. Recently, Emily has named the brand ambassador for Estee Lauder, giving readers video tutorials on how to use the brand’s latest beauty products.
With over 50,000 followers (and upward of 67k on Twitter), Emily has been widely recognized for her personal style and role in the fashion world. We absolutely love her polished looks that easily go from day to night and are just perfect for the chic working woman!
