Who is the editor of Take A Sip?

Me, Ashley Alt. I am a 31-year-old woman who finds reprieve in writing, happiness in the company of hilarious people, and comfort in a really great kimono.

After zigzagging from fashion to writing a few hundred times, I’ve decided that I want (and need) both — which is why my days are dedicated to this newsletter and the future launch of my clothing brand, VALT.

Carrie Bradshaw may be my muse, but these things just come naturally to me.

I have an Ask Ashley column in INK Publications, the ultimate guide to finer living in Connecticut, where I talk about what & who makes us happy, and why. Other things I’ve written can be found here & here.

I’m based in Connecticut. Love the proximity to NYC, hate the bugs. I have an inquisitive 5-year-old son, a really tall husband, and am currently pregnant with a girl.

In conclusion, I believe there is very little that good girlfriends + good conversation + good champagne can’t fix — which is what I want this newsletter to ultimately become — a community of women that celebrates each other’s ups, and supports one another during the downs. All in style, all with champagne.

Eventually, a percentage of subscriber proceeds will go toward mental health organizations and independent fashion designers who understand the importance of BEING YOURSELF in life.
