The Quinn of Quinntessences.

(…and intro­duc­ing the new Quin­ntessen­tial Style)

Some call me a ‘global cit­i­zen’, oth­ers a ‘bitsa’ — a bit-a this, a bit-a that. I just con­sider myself an Amer­i­can girl and self-proclaimed ‘Neo-Parisienne’, explor­ing the world and jet­ting from one adven­ture to the next.

Hi I’m Quinn — an Amer­i­can trans­plant, self-proclaimed ‘Neo-Parisienne’ and recently anointed Syd­neysider, explor­ing the world and jet­ting from one adven­ture to the next.

In 2011, I decided it was Paris or Bust and moved to the City of Light. While indulging in the chic twists and refined turns of Paris, I embraced oppor­tu­ni­ties to learn and to share a fresh perspective—as an attendee of Paris Fash­ion Week for my blog, as an intern with the Beauty Depart­ment of Women’s Wear Daily, and as an Edi­to­r­ial Man­ager and Trans­la­tor for Vogue Paris.

Becom­ing my self-professed ‘Neo-Parisienne’, I nav­i­gated the style and cul­ture of Paris, which even­tu­ally, some­how (ahem, love) lead me down-under for a while, where I’ve now taken on a new adven­ture as I make my own in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia.

I packed up what I learned in dis­cov­er­ing the inter­est­ing nooks and cran­nies of a city, said au revoir to Paris, g’day to Syd­ney, and dove into a new excit­ing place.

While expand­ing my hori­zons, I felt it was time to also expand Quin­ntessen­tial Style in order to share more of my pas­sions and dis­cov­er­ies. So, Quin­ntessen­tial Style has become Quin­ntessences — a source not only for Quin­ntessen­tial Style, also the Travel, Cul­ture, Food, Quirks and Inspi­ra­tion that should make up your quin­ntessen­tial week. Each day is ded­i­cated to a dif­fer­ent essen­tial cat­e­gory to make sure your week is packed with the very best.

The Quin­ntessen­tial Style archives 1.0 haven’t been moved over to the new site, as it was time for a clean slate. But, my quin­ntessen­tial blog begin­nings are still online and the old site can be viewed here.

Enjoy this new adven­ture and please con­tact me with any ques­tions or com­ments. I’d love to hear from you!

Feel free to con­tact me for col­lab­o­ra­tion requests both pro­fes­sional and blog related.
