Angela Tafoya is our latest fav-to-follow. She’s among the style-makers serving up memorably modest fashions and embraces puffy sleeves, prairie dresses, prints, and ruffles with the best of them.  

As Lonny’s editorial director, Angela has an eye for accessible design and offers up plenty of inspiration for the online magazine. So it’s no wonder she is known for her personal style too. A mom to an adorable little girl, Angela’s Instagram is full of photos of a busy life in San Francisco with fashion and home decor inspiration everywhere.  

Angela says, “I am so excited to dive head-first into the new year — to me it symbolizes a fresh start and a chance to try things I have been putting off. Some of those things include some style trends I’m eager to give a whirl. One trend I’ve been really into is floral dresses. We saw this style really rise in 2019 but I am looking forward to experimenting with more shapes and lengths in this vein.”
