THE CONCOCTION: est. 2016, re-EST. 2017
The perfect fusion of just the right ingredients.
FOUNDER + LEAD
Kathryn is a 23 yr. old social media guru hailing from Olympia, Washington. She runs the digital marketing agency, Fashionably Frank Marketing and co-leads a female business networking collaborative.
Kathryn blogs 3-4x per week. She believes a cup of coffee is the answer to all of life's problems and that all women should strive to embrace a #girlboss mantra.
Emma is a 24 yr. old flight attendant extraordinaire from Vancouver, Washington (outside of Portland, Oregon). She loves her job with a major airline and wouldn't trade it for the world.
Emma posts content on Sundays. She lived and worked in London, England for 1.5 years. She has a serious love of embroidery, leisurely travel + breakfast food.
Sera is a 17 yr. old student intern and artist from a local Olympia, Washington high school, the newest addition.
Sera brings her artistic talents to Fashionably Frank. You will notice her pieces woven throughout traditional blog posts - both watercolor artwork and photography. She also helps behind-the-scenes to support the smooth Fashionably Frank social media operations.
Louie is a gluten-free-aholic with particular taste. He makes all the major decisions around here - from design to blog content, Louie is the mastermind behind it all. Yes: Louie is a cat, and yes, he's named after Princess Diaries.
On multiple occasions, he has credited The Onion as his greatest journalistic inspiration.
Fashionably Frank provides solutions for leading a balanced, confident and empowered life by helping women (and the unforgotten others) to:
REALIZE THEIR TRUE POTENTIAL
EMBRACE THEIR UNIQUE GIFTS
ACTIVELY APPROACH THEIR GOALS
... & RECITE THIS THINKING IN THEIR PURSUIT OF
STYLE, TRAVEL, CAREER, RELATIONSHIPS + ME-TIME.
No lies here! We still struggle with these issues each and every day, but we wholeheartedly believe: the journey wasn't meant to be traveled alone.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN...
This little lifestyle blog was created in 2013 by Kathryn Coffman - a gal from the Pacific Northwest who loves social media, style + telling it like it is! In early 2016, Kathryn introduced part-time contributor Emma Crane who brought her own flair + sass (and the best travel tips on the planet!). In late 2017, Kathryn and Emma teamed up with new high school intern, Sera McKinney who jumped at the chance to spruce up the blog by contributing unique artwork and photography pieces.
THE FF PHILOSOPHY.
Do you believe you live your life with an inspired closet + honest, truthful values?
Then you're living the Fashionably Frank motto, m'dear!
While Kathryn and Emma were working in the fashion retail industry during college (that's how they met), they were surrounded by the latest trends, adopting a habit for living fashionably + affordably. Paired with their expectation of goodness, honesty + transparency in all people, "Fashionably Frank" has become their life motto. Leading from this place in heart + soul, they strive to make the everyday lives of everyday ladies just a bit easier.
