Born and raised in New Orleans, Stassi is, at heart, a southern belle. Having grown up spending her childhood summers in always-decadent Los Angeles, she developed a love for everything glamorous and chic at a young age. At 18, she made the move to Hollywood and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English Writing at Loyola Marymount University. Trying to incorporate her love of fashion into her writing, she spent time working at numerous styling houses throughout the city. Stassi has worked as a model for several years, giving her a first hand look at being on the other side of styling and getting one-on-one experience with designers and photographers. Stassi has appeared in such magazines as Italian Vanity Fair, 944, Us Weekly, and has helped co-host with Ted Casablanca for E! Online. Stassi is thrilled to be able to combine her small southern town roots with her big city lifestyle and help The Divine Addiction’s readers dress like a glamazon whilst on a budget.
Stassi’s addictions: Red nails, gold jewelry, scary movies, margaritas, cozy nights in, top knot buns, statement heels, girlie lingerie, Brigitte Bardot, online shopping, being near the water, hot sauce, all things New Orleans, PDA Oh, and pandora’s cooking.
