Style Wax Poetic

Kristen Conahan, Free people

Thanks for stopping by Style Wax Poetic!

A little on Style Wax Poetic: Kristen started SWP after living in New York City as a creative outlet and to share her love for fashion. She views fashion and beauty as a way to inspire and empower women to shine from the inside out.

Style Wax Poetic offers style editorial posts, fashion stories like “The Edit” and “Top Ten” and some of Kristen’s favorite beauty products or inspiration at the moment. Kristen also covers lifestyle and boutique travel, with the hopes to inspire you to travel to beautiful well designed destinations.

Kristen began Style Wax Poetic from the romanticized notion of fashion being a true art form of expression. Wax Poetic is usually used to describe the melodic words in poetry or music, but fashion, in its best form, can be just as fresh, melodic and transcending.


  1. Where are you based? I’m based in Los Angeles. I live on the East Side and love it, but often times think about moving more central in Los Angeles, like mid-city.
  2. What are some of Kristen’s favorite brands that she’s had a chance to work with? One of my favorite parts about having SWP, is that it’s allowed me to work with some amazing brands and companies. Some of my favorites included Hudson Jeans,, Neiman Marcus, L*Space Swimwear, Odylyne, DL 1961, Sole Society, G Star, Just Fab,, Project Runway, MaryKay Cosmetics, Loft, Benefit, Essie Nail Polish, Triangl, Lack of Colours, Starbucks, Arcona, Maya Brenner Jewelry, Sears, and NYX to name a few.
  3. What kind of camera do you use or do you shoot with a photographer? Over the years, I’ve learned one of the most important parts about running a blog is the photographer. I mainly work with two photographers (Michel Pinto in LA) and (Teresa Conahan, my sister, in San Diego). I’m always open to working with new photographers because creating beautiful fashion photographer is probably my favorite aspect of running a blog. I aim to bring the brands I work with the most unique and beautiful content.
  4. What else do you like to do outside of blog? I’m definitely an adventure, whether it be a day trip or trying out a new restaurant. I attend many events through my blog which I love, there’s nothing like seeing and meeting the brand or company in person. I love to travel and will be sharing my favorite locations this year with you on SWP. I love coffee and relaxing, shopping – of course, watching movies, dancing (I love hip-hop!), and hiking with my pup Chloe. I’m pretty laid back and also have a tomboy side you could say, since I was an athlete in college playing soccer. 
  5. What else should we know about you? I’m actually a total goof, I love being silly and love to laugh! Have further questions about fashion or blogging? Email me –

  1. Hi!

    My name is Kate and I’m a fashion blogger from Los Angeles. I found your page on SoCal Blogger Society and I just love your work! I wanted to let you know that I offer a photo editing/ retouching service for other bloggers and lookbook users. Having professional looking images will greatly improve the quality of your blog/lookbook profile and that’s what I’m here for! Most retouching companies charge a fortune for their services but I offer mine for only $6-$10 per image. Let me know what you think! I would love to work with you :)

    You can check out my blog and portfolio at or contact me at

    Best regards,

  2. Hi,

    I am wondering how I would be able to get pics of my elvislaskin tees on your site?

    I am new to blogging, and all of my tees are printed from my own abstract paintings.

    I have sold in 30 US states.

    Please let me know how you work!

    Best Regards,

    Melissa 323-424-7122

    Hi, I met you at Trader Joes, where I work, and asked about your cool sunglasses, which I’d like to get something like them for my girlfriend. You told me the name of the designer but I can’t recall it, and can’t find them on your site, do you have the details on them? You are wearing them in several pics here, black ones. Thanks!
