Vanessa was raised on 80s new wave, ghost stories, and Judy Blume novels. Her love of churros and black eyeliner knows no bounds, but her heart belongs to a chunky Boston Terrier named Oliver. When not lurking you on Instagram, Vanessa enjoys buying too many red lipsticks, sketching plans for a mariah carey closet of her very own, and searching the door-to-door puppet peddler that got away. Her role models include (but are not limited to): Francie Nolan, Anne Boleyn, Titus Andromedon, Dorothy Parker, and her mom.
