Hi.  Welcome.  My name is Mariah and Quite Continental is a lifestyle blog where I indulge my various interests in cocktails, travel, fashion, art, design, culture and etc.  This blog is a place for my own opinions and sponsored posts will be clearly designated.  Professionally, I specialize in creating memorable experiences and lasting relationships with discerning customers for brands in the luxury marketplace.  Currently, I am the Marketing Director for the New York artisan distiller Brooklyn Gin.

My personal style is classic.  My guiding principle is timelessness, but I also have a deep appreciation for the constant evolution of fashion.  That said, I generally dress a bit boyish and am rather influenced by my West Coast roots.  I suppose I’m a clotheshorse of a different color.  Somehow, I am nostalgic for eras I’ve never known.  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:

Quite a looker, no?

I was born near San Francisco, was raised in Los Angeles and currently reside in New York City.  I love collecting new stamps in my passport and wouldn’t mind if my estate contained a full set of monogrammed Louis Vuitton luggage as well-worn as Katharine Hepburn’s.

Thank you for stopping by.

All best,
Mariah Kunkel

    Ran across your interview on styleslikeu on neckties and thought it was absolutely lovely. Such a wonderful look done very well. Best of wishes. RJ

  • I Just found your blog the other day and it is amazing. After reading your about page I wanted to say that you have expressed these sentiments wonderfully in your blog.

    I also love old Life magazines. I wish I could afford to buy them in bulk. I recently posted some pictures of the Buckleys from their “American Family” features. Again, great blog. I am looking forward to reading through it all.

  • I feel the same way. My role model is a combo of Myrna Loy and Mame.

    hello from indonesia.
    i found your blogs yesterday and i love what your charm school idea. i was thinking that i would refer it to make a check-list-project from your day 1 to day 28 (or 29) advise.
    thanks for inspiring me.

  • I feel as if it’s quite silly that I’m just now digging into your blog. I’ve been admiring you via Instagram for so long. You now have a permanent link on my blog – I think you’re the cat’s pajamas! I’m also a hopeless nostalgist so I fear I may lose my weekend strolling through your archives.


  • Mariah, Yours is one of the most charming, interesting blog concepts I have ever seen, and I applaud your panache. Thank you for turning my day around … so looking forward to more. All the best, Terri
