A West Coast transplant to the East Coast, Dria Murphy, meshes her laid back California style with city ready silhouettes and adds a dose of pure personality and love of style to create a look all her own. As a style and PR consultant, she gets to spend her days surrounded by her love of fashion – and as can be seen in her house tour – of interior design as well.

Dria’s Style Profile:

Your very favorite outfit

A great pair of skinny denim with some pumps and a leather jacket.

I have a pair of Marni shoes that I found at a thrift store for over 80% off retail.

The item you no longer have but wish you did

I had these Stella McCartney tortoise shell sunglasses that fit my face perfectly and went with every outfit. I left them in a taxi two years ago and I still think about them.

Most fashionable friend and why

I have many fashionable friends but my close friend, Baylee Zwart, always looks effortlessly chic. She is very minimal but is always wearing something unexpected and on trend. She is also the talented designer behind Azlee Jewelry.

Your typical work “uniform”

Denim, leather jacket, blouse, heels or flats.

Best fashion advice

My Gigi taught me to take fashion risks and never be afraid to make a statement.
