About Me

My name is Leah Wise (thus the name, StyleWise). I live with my Ph.D. student husband, Daniel, and our pet rats in Charlottesville, Virginia. I'm a singer, writer, blogger, Episcopalian, and thrift shop manager.

Fun Facts: 
  • Daniel and I got married at the tender age of 21 after meeting in Florida State University's Religion Department, hitting it off immediately, and dating for a couple years. 
  • I grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida, but my family is originally from Indiana.
  • My favorite color is sapphire blue, and it's also my birthstone.
  • I have a younger sister who does really cool miniature photography.
  • I grew up in an Evangelical Christian tradition, had an emotional falling-out due to pervasive sexism in the church I attended in college, and got confirmed in the Episcopal Church in 2016. Hooray for progressive Christianity!
  • I love pickles.
  • I'll be 30 in September, but people often think I'm still in my early 20s.

  1. Love your blog and your story on elephant journal! This is something I do want to start thinking more about bc I've never really learned much about sustainable and ethical clothes but I definitely want to be a part of the solution bc it's so horrible how ppl are being treated in other countries when it comes to making our clothes or other things! Thanks for the comment on my blog! I'll have to keep checking back over here! It's so cool you found me through Pinterest! Man social media really connects people! To think we once took a class in college together and then went through such a similar faith journey! Love it!

  2. I love your blog too!!! I'm so glad you got back to your Christian roots!!! Me too. I love reading about sustainability and upcycling. It's so bad what fast fashion is doing to the environment and humanity.
