Hello there. My name is Mariah and Quite Continental is a lifestyle and fashion blog where I indulge my various interests in travel, fashion, art, design, culture and other bits of frippery that I find amusing.
My personal style is classic. My guiding principles are timelessness and elegance. I’m something of a prep, given my penchant for elbow patches and riding boots, but I have a deep appreciation for “high” fashion. That said, I generally dress a bit boyish. You’ll usually find me in an oxford and sometimes also a tie. I suppose I’m a clotheshorse of a different color.
Somehow, I am nostalgic for eras I’ve never known. I’m always searching for ways to bring old-fashioned class to my thoroughly modern life. I adore classic films, fashion and music that hearkens to the past. I wish I could have shared a gin gimlet with my grandmother when she looked like this:
I was born near San Francisco, was raised in Los Angeles and currently reside in New York City. I adore collecting new stamps in my passport and aspire for my estate to contain a full set of monogrammed Louis Vuitton luggage as well-worn as Katharine Hepburn’s.
Thank you for stopping by.
