élan began as a scrapbook of OOTD pics styled by a very vivacious tall girl from alaska…

And that tall girl… is me.

Hello there!

How kind of you to stop by.

My name is Elan, and ever since I was (not so) little, I’ve had a propensity for standing out, embracing the little things that made me different. For example:

  • I’m a twenty-four year old who enjoys spending her Saturday nights watching classic Audrey Hepburn films and catching up in her journal. Typically, I’m wearing a marvelous 1960’s penoir set and sipping an aperitif

  • I’m statuesque at six feet two inches tall and for a woman, that’s well above average. I celebrate my height and no, I do not play basketball, volleyball, or model

  • Most of the clothes I wear are used and I especially fancy vintage clothing. Casual settings never stop me from creating my own occasion to dress up!

  • I grew up and currently reside in the wild and rugged 49th state of Alaska. I don’t fit in, and yet there’s no other place in the world that I feel most myself

  • I am quite witty when it comes to puns, which you’ll find throughout my writing

  • I’m also a pretty expressive NBA commentator and would love to someday be the next Ernie Sanders or sit courtside. Go Lakers!

From its humble beginnings in scrapbook form, it has since evolved into a blog where I’m able to express who I am through writing and personal style. My goal is to educate, enlighten, and entertain readers on the lively observations and experiences of my life.

So I invite you to sit back, relax, curl up with a cup of coffee (or cocktail, whatever you fancy), and enjoy my ramblings.

Once a-pun a time….
