The Editor of Sip Sip is…

Me, Ashley — a writer and fashion designer who finds reprieve in working out (where my Soul Cycle addicts at?), happiness in the company of hilarious people, and comfort in an oversize silk robe, ice cold champagne in hand.

After zigzagging from fashion to writing a few hundred times, I realized my talents lie in the excitement of making women feel less alone in whatever life trudgery they’re wading through — which is why my days are dedicated to this newsletter and my clothing brand, VALT.

I am also the editor of luxury magazine Ridgefield Lifestyle, and hold various advice columns in publications where I talk about what & who makes us happy, and why. Other things I’ve written can be found here.

I’m currently based in Connecticut. Love the proximity to NYC, hate the bugs.
