THIS IS NOT A FASHION STORY I spent my youth shopping at discount department stores, getting boozy in suburban backyards and proposing marriage to every boy I dated. By age nineteen, I was a college dropout living in a West Village shoebox with three roommates and only six months to prove that my blog, @WeWoreWhat, could become a full blown career… or else board the LIRR back to my mom’s house. Flash forward ten years, four boyfriends, and two million Instagram followers later – and I’m more than just an influencer. I’m a bonafide business woman—a CEO, tech founder and fashion designer with seven figure deals in the pipeline. Despite these successes, I have never been your typical play-by-the-rules fashionista. I disrupted the fashion industry using my own playbook—one that I’m finally ready to share with you, my readers. “This Is Not A Fashion Story” is the down and dirty tale of how a Long Island-born teenager achieved her dreams, and made a ton of mistakes along the way. It’s about falling in and out of love, but mostly learning how to love yourself. It’s a story that proves success isn’t about a college degree or your upbringing. It’s about trusting your gut, knowing when to take risks and fighting to get what you want in love, life and business. But above all it’s the story of how a young girl made it in the concrete jungle that is New York City—and how you can too. WARNING: This book contains multiple references to my wild, romantic and hilarious sex life. I apologize in advance.
Blogger turned businesswoman, Danielle Bernstein, will release her first book next week on May 12th. The 27-year old from Long Island launched her blog WeWhatWore 10 years ago and has since gone on to produce many fashion collections and an influencer tech tool called Moe Assist. The book, called This Is Not a Fashion Story: Taking Chances, Breaking Rules, and Being a Boss in the Big City, is a tell-all outlining Bernstein’s rise to success and the bumps along the way. Bernstein told Harper’s Bazaar, “I wanted to share everything, all the different sides of me, my flaws and why I’ve succeeded. I’m hoping they take away something from my stories, whether it’s career motivation or the red flags to look out for when dating. I want my audience to feel closer to me after reading this book.” Bernstein’s two million plus followers can find all of her tips and tricks for making it in New York in her book available for pre-order here.
