Hello! Welcome to Vandi Fair – a place to chronicle my personal style and things I find colorful, delicious, whimsical & beautiful. I’m Lauren Vandiver, a twenty-something social media marketing professional for a fashion brand, University of Texas graduate, fashion enthusiast, Disney devotee and mother to a darling black cat named Mowgli. I’m from a small town outside of Dallas, Sunnyvale, but live in Austin, where I spend the time I’m not in the office running Town Lake, exploring new restaurants and trying DIY’s and recipes I find Pinteresting.
For my little sister and I, playing “dress up” was a part of our daily routine since I can remember and after winning an essay contest in fourth grade, I knew I wanted to write for a living. My passions for writing and fashion grew over time and I eventually decided I wanted to write for a fashion magazine when I “grew up”. I majored in Magazine Journalism at the University of Texas, assuming I’d move to the big apple after graduation and hunt for jobs at a fashion magazine. But the world was changing. And because of the growing importance of social media, I was able to combine my two loves in a career right here in the lone star state.
Although I’m not an editor for Vogue, I still devour fashion magazines each month. To adhere to the dreams of my 9-year-old self, the name “Vandi Fair” seemed all too fitting for my blog. So here it is. Enjoy!
