The Fashion Magpie

Hi Magpies!

The Fashion Magpie is a literary lifestyle and fashion blog founded and authored by Jennifer Shoop.  Jennifer started the blog as a passion project while pursuing an advanced degree in literature in 2010, then while working for and eventually leading two non-profit organizations focused on educational access for underserved communities, and finally while launching an HR technology business with her husband.

She has since turned to focus full-time on writing.

The Fashion Magpie is a space for the freighted and the frivolous, covering topics as disparate and imbalanced as grief, motherhood, fashion trends, interiors, home products, gifts, marriage, and childrens wear.  It exists to  inspire and politely provoke women to live thoughtfully, well-curated, stylish lives and is sustained by the passionate, intelligent, thoughtful women who read and comment along.

Jennifer was born and raised in Washington, D.C. alongside her four siblings.  She attended Georgetown Visitation, then triple majored in English, History, and French at the University of Virginia, and finally earned her M.A. in English at Georgetown University.  Jennifer lives on the Upper West Side of New York City with her beloved husband, two children, and Airedale terrier.
