Hello! My name is Thea — I go by roxy here which is well-loved nickname — and it’s great to meet you! On Effortlessly with Roxy we focus on preppy chic outfits for women that instill confidence, happiness and a bit of brightness to each day. As a result, we style effortlessly.
I’ve loved fashion and shopping since I was a kid. My cousin and I would dig through our Grandma’s collection of jewelry from around the world and doll ourselves up for glamorous parties (all held in our imaginations). Even as a child I swooned over my Mom’s collection of classic 70s work clothing from brands like Prada, Chanel, Diane von Fursternberg et al. Back then I didn’t know about preppy chic outfits for women, but I knew I wanted to learn how to style effortlessly.
In my awkward preteen and early teenage years, struggling with my transformation from girl to lady, I found it very difficult to dress my curvy body. There wasn’t anyone I could look to in the media, fashion magazines, or Hollywood for inspiration. I felt different and out of place. I was teased mercilessly. How could this be, I often wondered. Certainly, there had to be other young ladies like me out there. In contrast, the embarrassed little girl inside of me smiles and cries tears of relief knowing that it was her own self-acceptance that was missing then. No longer.
Due to my childhood experiences, as an adult I’ve learned to embrace my body fully. First of all times are changing and secondly my fellow Milennials really know how to affect those changes! Likewise my preppy chic outfits for women express who I am and all the joy I have to share! I work in the technology and high fashion industry, blending the two together seamlessly and bringing the latter into modern times. Our clients smile each day as they reach a new generation of stylish men and women. Similarly, this cycle of positive vibes carries over to Effortlessly with Roxy! This is a place to discuss all things shopping and fashion. We discuss women’s outfits, work outfits and weekend outfits, casual clothing shopping ideas and work shopping, spring layering ideas and fall layering ideas. Most of all, we chat how to put together a great outfit. We style effortlessly.
I’ve always been most attracted to the preppy chic aesthetic. I mix classic elements with preppy pieces and add just a bit of boho in for fun. Most of all, there’s a feminine vibe to everything I wear. Preppy chic outfits for women are the most flattering out there! You’ll often find me hunting the racks of Madewell, Saks Fifth Avenue, American Eagle Outfitters and Aerie, Zara, Barney’s, Nordstrom, Aritzia, Bergdorf Goodman, Anthropologie, LOFT and Old Navy. This is how I style effortlessly. I enjoy mixing discount brands with my high-end bags from brands like Chloé, Céline, Hermès and more. The right mix of clothing can look expensive and chic no matter where it was purchased!
We keep it light and fun here.

Furthermore, a little more about me: I oversee strategy and new vertical development for a young, well-funded company in Manhattan. Of course, each day I wear one of my preppy chic outfits for women! I have the pleasure of managing an extremely proficient team of talented technology professionals as we help companies navigate the online and social media world in verticals including fashion, real estate, interior design, fine art and travel. At work I style effortlessly with my clothing and my leadership! Our company quantifies data and puts it to work in ways no one else does. Previously I scouted fine arts talent working for a very large, well-known fashion megabrand. As a result my passions are art (oil painting mostly, look for my Etsy shop soon!) and doing non-profit work, mostly for Habitat for Humanity in and around the tri-state area.
I grew up in NYC and Connecticut, went to college out in Colorado and travel often with my husband, especially in our Jeep Wrangler named Hugo. I used to be in a band. But so did about 1 million other NYC residents, so I just bass for fun now. Most noteworthy, I’ve got a Shiba Inu named Cinnamon, and an incredible husband who mostly prefers his anonymity (understandably!). We recently sold our starter apartment and are living together in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. This Manhattan girl never thought she’d be living in Brooklyn!! But I love it.
