If you want to know a little bit about Shannon Wollack, sneak a peek at her Instagram account. While mine is filled with badly lit selfies and cute pics of my girls (although you should still totally follow it!), hers looks like the pages of an impossibly chic design magazine. Maybe that’s because Shannon, a former fashion exec at Ralph Lauren, is the founder of LIFE.STYLE, an L.A. based design firm with celeb clients like Chelsea Handler and Fergie. She also happens to be a mom of two, including a daughter, Poppy (where has that name been all my life!), whose “glam-rock” nursery has me swooning. Here, Shannon shares the scoop on her personal style, revealing her go-to brands from denim to home decor.
