Name: Tiffani (Wilson) Harvey
Residence: Fort Wayne, IN
Where did you grow up? Kendallville, IN
Occupation: I work full time in digital marketing at an MKG agency.
What is your earliest memory of a noticeable interest in fashion?
It was very early on. I would say late middle school or early high school. My friends would always ask
for fashion advice, I‘d get outfit compliments and to me it was just fun picking out outfits.
My mom would make me lay my clothes out for school the night before, because she
knew I’d end up changing outfits a million times in the morning.
Who or what influences your style?
Comfort! I’ve noticed the older I get, comfort definitely is a must!
What are your favorite Instagram accounts to follow?
This is so hard, there are so many amazing creators and fashionistas. If I had to narrow it down I’d say Sabrina who is one of my absolute favorites because she’s similar to my size and she shares her best Amazon finds. Kennedy Frazer is from Michigan and super close by so I enjoy seeing what she’s up to. Bre Sheppard is a well-known blogger who lives in the Seattle area and friends with Sabrina. Lastly, Kylie Katich who is more of a content creator and less of a fashion blogger and the images and videos she posts are awesome!
Describe your personal style in four words or one phrase:
Versatile, Comfort, Girly, Sporty.
What’s your go-to item in your closet?
White sneakers! I have about five pairs of white sneakers, but I usually always go for my Air Force Ones. I love how you can dress them up or dress them down! You can wear them with a dress or wear them with jeans, really anything!
Who are your favorite designers, and what do you like about their designs?
Pamella Rolland. I got to see her designs at NYFW in 2018 and they were stunning. I just love her designs. They’re super girly and upscale with pretty ball gowns and things of that sort. She also included lots of floral designs, which again I love!
Did you ever consider leaving the Indy area? If so, what made you stay?
No, I met my husband in college and we both got jobs we love here. My husband is four years older than me so he got a job when I was in late undergrad, and then I decided to go to grad school at Purdue University Fort Wayne. Plus, we’re both really close to our families and it would take a lot for us to ever move. My parents are forty minutes from us and his parents are ten minutes from us. At this point in life, we want to expand our family soon and we’d really like to be around family when we do have kids. A big perk is the cost of living here is cheap and we LOVE to travel!
What’s a day in the life of an influencer like?
So I don’t do blogging or content creating full time and my days are pretty packed with my full time job. I work full time in digital marketing at an MKG agency. In the free time I do have, I fill that with filming stories, reels, shooting content, etc. I’m pretty, “Go! Go! Go!” most days but to be honest that’s my personality so I don’t really mind it. However, like anyone, I do get burnt out and need a break from time to time but honestly I really love what I do of creating content, styling outfits and connecting with people. It can be exhausting for sure. The hardest part for me is knowing when to put it away for the night since you can do it all from your phone. I catch myself “working” all day and night sometimes.
What’s next for you? What short and long term goals are on your list?
For now, I am continuing to connect with my audience and build that relationship socially, buy a home and have a second wedding. I’m a COVID bride and my husband and I didn’t get our big celebration that we both still want. My long term goals are to grow my other platforms (TikTok and start a Youtube channel), travel and eventually start a family.
Fashion to me is anything you put on your body that makes you feel beautiful.
Worst fashion trend?
Velour anything! If you don’t know what that is, think of Juicy sweatsuits.
Best fashion trend?
Sweatsuits or sneakers with dresses.
Last but certainly not least, name your favorite fashion icon?
Hailey Bieber, Blake Lively, or Meagan Markle in that order. Hailey wears a lot of outfits with sneakers and finds fun ways to dress up sweatpants. It’s comfort chic in a way.
