Style Gallery Star Sighting: Marisa


If you thought our last Style Gallery Star Sighting got it ‘bright’, you’ll dig the daring yet darling style of Marisa D., our fourth fashionista in this series. Her rustic chic look suits the mountainous little town of Drums, Pennsylvania, where she cares for her two sons while running her Etsy shop, AllyHootVintage. Our assortment of deets is as vibrant as her eclectic ensembles, but there’s more on her blog, The Shades of Monet Chronicles. So give that a whirl, too!

“You can usually find me in a comfy wash and wear dress with a pair of flats and some kind of hat,” Marisa explains. “Even though I work from home, I still think it’s important to get dressed just to feel extra pretty and be more productive.”


“I would describe my style as a pinch of vintage, a dollop of playfulness, a dash of girly, with a spoonful of color,” reflects Marisa.


“I enjoy baking, crafting, tending my plot at our community garden, and of course,” she adds, “doing oodles and oodles of antiquing. I’m a musician, so in my down time, I love writing music and playing the piano, uke, or any other instrument I can get my hands on.”


On the Style Gallery, Marisa admires the fab photos of Amy M. and tori.bonaventura.

Shop the top 3 items Marisa is hoping for this fall: the In the Key of Chic Dress, Bookshelf Bandit Tote in Caterpillar, and Gallery Opener Heel in Marigold!

Share the spotlight by shooting and sharing your outfit pics, and you might illuminate our next Style Gallery Star Sighting!
