Name: Julia

Where She Lives: Rittenhouse Square




Day Job: Longtime Philadelphia fashion and special events coordinator.

Where We Found Her: Sipping a latte at La Colombe.

What She’s Wearing: Various pieces she's collected over the years.

 

Where She Shops: "I don’t really shop much anymore, but I love Joan Shepp, Knit Wit and of course Boyds. Boyd’s really is fabulous."

Sound Bite: "This online shopping is going to be the death of the shops. People aren’t able to feel or touch anything more when they shop. And that really is a shame. That is when you are able to find substance and style. When you make contact with something."

    She always has the best hats on in Rittenhouse Square. And what a sweet lady.

    Julia is the epitome of style. I’ve been admiring her for years, always impeccably dressed and love her hair!! Happy to see her featured and again, a charming woman.

    As a Rittenhouse resident for 12 years, I too, have always admired Julia’s style. Her truest fashion accessories are her beautiful posture, gorgeous skin and welcoming smile (which of course is complimented by the perfect red lipstick).
