Audree Lopez of Simply Audree Kate
Meet Audree Kate Lopez, fashion stylist, consultant, and blogger behind simplyaudreekate.com and @simplyaudreekate on Instagram. Audree started her blog while in her freshman year at Arizona State University. She started out styling for local lifestyle and fashion photographers and thought that she could use her website as not only a creative outlet, but as a portfolio and resume builder for future job opportunities.
Audree graduated ASU with a Bachelor's of Science in Marketing and from Walter Cronkite with a degree in Journalism, Public Relations, Advertising, and Applied Communication. She uses both of these degrees to her advantage, her business degree helping her run her styling business and the technical aspects of her blog, and her journalism degree helping her create content and manage media and press relationships.
Audree's blog and Instagram feature photos of Audree's day to day looks as well as curated looks and brand partnerships. With almost ten thousand followers on Instagram, Audree has built an audience of fashion lovers who look to her for outfit inspiration. Audree herself takes inspiration from Old Hollywood films and the glamour and fashion of that era.
Audree attributes her success to being career and goal-oriented from day 1. She knew she wanted to move to New York City and knew exactly what she wanted to be doing and did what was necessary to get there.
Audree's advice to aspiring stylists and bloggers? "It's going to be hard so you have to grow thick skin, get as much experience on and off your resume, and keep a smile on your face. You'll have ups and downs and people might not understand the fashion industry, but you know what's best for you. Just keep moving forward and setting your own goals."
Looking forward, Audree has plans to document some of her future travels on the blog, cover more lifestyle topics, and is working on starting a YouTube channel. Stay tuned to see more from Audree Kate.
