Steffy Degreff is the genius writer and photographer behind Steffy’s Pros and Cons, which took off in 2011. She lives by the sea in Long Beach, NY, with her husband Matt, son Hudson, and their dachshund, Claude.
Steffy moved to New York from Miami in 2014 since she was born there and always dreamt of coming back. Her inspiration for her blog happened when she was living in Nicaragua in 2011 and discovered some fashion blogs.
Upon moving to Miami in December 2011, she decided to start one of her own, focusing on her love for collecting vintage. After blogging for a couple of months, she left her full-time job to go back to Fashion School and paid her rent by selling vintage clothing online.
Her blog blew up and the rest is history. Today, her followers look to her when they need advice for personal style, travel ideas, and overall lifestyle hacks, tips, and tricks as a wife, mom, and a successful entrepreneur. Numerous collaborations followed, such as those she had with THE GAP, Forever 21, and Teen Vogue. She has 480K followers on Instagram, 556.3K followers on TikTok, and 40K followers on Facebook.
This is a fun vintage-inspired look Steffy shot in collaboration with Lookbook.nu X GAP for styld.by. She said it feels so surreal that THE GAP wants her to style their clothes, which makes Steffy one happy girl!
Steffy was also offered by Forever 21 the amazing opportunity to help them open their store on Lincoln Road. This is a beautiful 3 story store with every piece of clothing you could possibly dream of. She and some of her blogger friends were also there to offer moral support during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. It was definitely a day to remember!
Steffy also collaborated with Teen Vogue when she hosted a fun event at Macy’s for Teen Vogue’s new collection launch. She described it as a great experience to be interacting with customers and styling their new collection. Steffy loves hosting events like this all over, meeting great people who are always fun and supportive!
