Meet Margie.

Critics say this city has no style. We’re here to prove them wrong. Welcome to HubThreads, where we chat with the most stylish people we find out and about in Boston. Think you or someone you know has the best street style? Let us know.


Where are you from? Pittsburgh originally, but I spent the past 10 years, prior to moving here, in San Diego.

What do you do? I’m a freelance writing and “engagement designer” (I know, not very Google-able).  Basically, I work with social impact organizations to build communications campaigns and effectively build an audience.

How would you describe your personal style? I like to say if Annie Hall and Indiana Jones had baby.  For work, I dress a little tom-boy with classic feminine touches. Usually I try and wear one thing a day that pushes a boundary. Casually, though, I like to be laid back, but with a good dose of sexy. A high slit skirt with some fresh Nikes, or a beanie with a purple lip, mile-high heels and track pants.

Where do you like to shop in Boston? It isn’t a shop, but the best Boston-based business to shop at is this new ethical fashion capsule line called Vetta.  It’s minimal, but versatile.  I also love the thrift shops in Allston right after all the students move out for the year.  What a gold mine!

Tell me something else about yourself. I am a serious home chef and I host community dinners once a month through I usually host them on a local farm right outside of town.  I love this town.  I love hosting and meeting anyone and everyone in it.

I wanna come to a dinner! Ok!
