50 Questions with style influencer Steph Weizman

Steph Weizman has one of those uncanny abilities to have us wanting to go shopping at every Instagram post. Our ultimate style muse – whether it’s a floaty dress or a slogan tee, somehow Steph pulls it off with an air of laid-back casualness (and we’re yet to see her make a wardrobe blunder).

With Instagram a side hustle to her full-time job as a legal advisor, we were intrigued by what life would look like for Steph behind the Instagram feed. Here, we chat to the San Francisco-based influencer to find out everything from how she first got her start in the digital fashion realm to biggest misconceptions about being a style Instablogger.
