Stylophyle: A Little Edgy & A Little Sporty

Stylophile- n. A person who likes to dress up and seems to have a different outfit for every occasion. v. To dress up in fancy clothes whenever you go out because you don’t know who you’re going to meet, and you don’t want to get dressed down. Influenced by fashion, art, culture, and beauty around the world, Sabrina Poon describes herself as just that—a stylophile. Except, she stylized it into Stylophyle. Poon is a New York City-based blogger who loves traveling, food, fashion, and repeat! With beauty and brains, Poon’s full-time job isn’t a style consultant, but a neurology nurse.

New York City Inspires A Twist On Menswear

New York City is not only one of the fashion capitals of the world, but it’s also a fashion world all on its own. Whether it’s the woman who bikes around Lafayette with her head held high, sunglasses on, with a pair of the sickest huarache sandals or the lady entrepreneur, sporting a black pencil skirt and a red blazer, waiting to get her coffee, New York City is a fashion world that will always attract twenty-year-old Jamie Lee Buhain. This Rutgers University business student talks to YHM about what inspires her sense of style and how she makes it her own. YHM: You said New York City is the fashion world that has greatly inspired you. How has it inspired/affected you and your style? JLB: Not only does the city itself have visual and emotional appeal, but the chic New Yorker who walks around its busy streets also conveys a story simply by how she is dressed. Fashion is essentially centered on culture and even if I have not been to many different fashion …
