Abby Hathorn, CEO & Founder of the Vintage Inspired Passionista blog, has launched her new blog Sixteen & Successful. This blog is designed by a teen for tween and teen
girls who are looking for real and modest advice about fashion, beauty, and life. With Sixteen &Successful, Abby hopes to show girls how to be themselves in a world full of critics. Without the overwhelming support and requests from VIP blog fans, friends, and family, Sixteen & Successful would not be possible. “What I am doing with my life is normal—I have no desire to be a part of the ‘normal teen’ stereotypical generation that is being shown all over the internet and TV,” states Hathorn. “Sixteen & Successful’s mission is ERICA which stands for Empowering Relationships to Inspire & Celebrate Accomplishments of tween and teen girls.” She needs your help to show the world that young girls are more than reality TV shows, bad press, and young Hollywood stars gone wild.
Abby Hathorn, a freelance writer, fashion stylist, and blogger, is the CEO & Founder of the Vintage Inspired Passionista blog, which showcases her love of vintage and modern apparel, fashion tips and trends, beauty news and products, community events and happenings, and anything else that strikes her fancy. Abby also contributes to other publications, does live-blogging and social media broadcasts, and special event appearances. In an interview with Abby, See Jane Write Birmingham writer Javacia Harris Bowser stated, “Birmingham may have its own teen prodigy in the world of fashion blogging.”
In addition to fashion styling and writing, this sweet Southern Belle is also the lead role in the upcoming independent film La Madame (Director, Carlos Rosales) and was an extra in the Birmingham-produced independent film Is What It Is. Abby has had the opportunity to interview celebrities and fashion designers such as Ty Pennington, Ahmed Hassan, Emily Ellyn, Hilton Hollis, Joeffer Caoc, and Karolina Zmarlak–just to name a few.
