Hi there, I’m Blair (Culwell) Staky, the fashion and lifestyle blogger behind The Fox & She. I grew up in Dallas, Texas and moved to Chicago in the spring of 2012 when my boyfriend, now husband, Rob, got a new job. Admittedly I was nervous about the move, but it’s turned out to be exactly where I’m suppose to be.
Rob and I got married in the summer of 2014 at the Chicago History Museum and moved to Streeterville, where we currently reside with our shiba inu, Oliver, who makes occasional appearances on the blog. Fun fact: Oliver looks just like a fox and was the inspiration behind the name The Fox & She.
With the move came a career change too. I went from working full time for my family business, to working part time for my family, and working full-time for my freelance blog design company, Leap. In 2016, I made the tough decision to close my design business to focus on The Fox & She. It’s been a big change, but every morning I’m thankful that I have a job that allows me to use my creative side and explore it more every day. When I’m not blogging, my hobbies include photography, cooking and traveling.
At The Fox & She, I believe the word style means a lot more than how you dress. True style encompasses so much more! It’s how you actually live out your life. This fashion-focused lifestyle site celebrates the stylish, colorful and cultivated life that’s enviable, yet attainable.
You’ll find a collection of personal style and outfit inspiration, interior design ideas, beauty tips, honest stories, thought-provoking questions, travel diaries & the occasional DIY project.
I believe that life should be fulfilling, inspired and authentic to you. I believe that personal style should be reflected in all aspects of your life, not just in your closet. Entertaining shouldn’t be complicated and your home should be a place that brings you joy. Lastly, getting dressed should be fun, not frustrating. Life is lived in the everyday moments, so let’s make them great!
Thanks for stopping by, I’m glad you’re here!
What kind of camera do you use and how do you edit your pictures?
I use a Canon 60D and 35mm 1.4 prime lens. I shoot in RAW and edit my photos in Lightroom with a preset I created. I also love playing with VSCO filters and this pack is my favorite.
What size do you wear in clothing and shoes?
I usually wear a small on top and 25 or 0-2 on the bottom. As for shoes, a good ole 8.5 or 9!
Over the past 5 years, the Fox & She has grown into an online destination for attainable style and home decor inspiration and easy recipe & entertaining ideas. Blair has partnered with brands like Anthropologie, Kate Spade, World Market, Clinique, Kendall-Jackson, TOMS, Gap Factory, Bare Minerals and more (see all partnerships here).
