Megan enjoys traveling and learning new techniques, flavors and cuisines to bring home. She also takes on more DIY projects than she’d like to admit and has plenty to contribute to #pinterestfail. She lives in the Washington D.C. area with her husband, dog and newborn baby.



Stasia Savasuk is a Personal Stylist (with a twist!) and founder of Stasia’s Style School. Her unconventional-transformation-motivational approach to style leads women of all ages and stages on an intuitive journey of letting go, knowing what they know, and embracing a life filled with confidence, courage and (inside-out) congruency. Stasia knows that changing your pants will change your life, and has ushered hundreds of women away from years of body-shaming and muffin-top jeans to a place of body acceptance and pants that fit-to-flatter. 

Stasia can be seen frolicking in the backwoods of Vermont with her two kids, wearing a skirt, big earrings, bold lipstick and the world's best accessory, a friendly smile.
