Hello, I’m Amelia!
I created Clotheshorse in 2009 to take off some of the pressure I was feeling being an actress and constantly auditioning. Getting a role is largely out of my control so it felt important to have a creative outlet that I was in charge of.
I named my site Clotheshorse NYC because growing up, my grandmother and mother used to call me a clotheshorse and I was living in NYC at the time.
I graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in acting. My love for fashion was reignited when I took an academic semester and studied at NYU Paris. I was fascinated by the effortless, quirky, style of french women and really started thinking about the way I dress when I returned to the United States.
After living in New York City and Brooklyn, I decided to relocate to Los Angeles in 2011 to further pursue my acting career. I love being an east coast girl living a west coast life and my style is definitely influenced by the intersection of those two worlds.
Clotheshorse is a blog that gives you a peek into my day to day lifestyle.
