Welcome to Runways & Rosés! My name is Aliza and I'm the face behind the blog. I am born and raised a New Englander— living in Massachusetts, summering in Maine, and going to college in Rhode Island. All of these places have influenced my love affair with fashion, from my Boston street style to my preppy Kennebunkport looks. Fashion has always been my passion and the one thing I have always been good at. As a little girl, my mom always dressed me up in the cutest clothes, inspiring my love for fashion. Once I was older it was so much fun for me to get dressed in the morning; it was like a game. I loved it when I went to school and my friends would ask me "Where did you get that?" or say "You have the best style!". I combined my love for fashion with my love for writing when I finally created my blog. It all came together when I came up with the perfect name. It combines my love for fashion, leading a life full of fun, and for anything pink. I am definitely a girly girl, so pink sums me up so well!
As a 22 year old fashion student, I get to live and breathe fashion everyday. But most of the time, my professors are dictating what I am doing—there's no creativity anymore. It's disheartening when you think you have the best idea and your professor doesn't like it and tells you it's wrong. Runways and Rosés was started so I could say whatever I wanted to say about fashion. What can I say, rosé takes the pain away!
During the spring of 2018, my life changed forever (not to be dramatic) when I studied abroad in London, UK. I was absolutely sacred to death to go live in a foreign country where I didn’t know a soul. People always told me that it was good to “step outside my comfort zone” and at first I felt like I jumped head first off a cliff that was my comfort zone. Little did I know that I would fall in love with everything about London; the food, fashion, and lifestyle. I also got to travel all around the UK and Europe and my undying love for travel blossomed. From hiking the Scottish Highlands to devouring stroopwaffles in Amsterdam, every adventure left their mark on me and I can’t wait to add more stamps to my passport.
