Who Am I ?


June 2012

1: Who am I?

I am Sarah Mendelsohn, the fashion blogger behind A Hit of Sarah.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I do too much. I’m a student at Pace University, an an intern at Harper’s Bazaar, a freelance writer and reporter for an array of publications, and a blogger for my personal fashion blog, A Hit of Sarah. This summer I’m focusing on expanding my website. I’m in the process of adding a street style section, which I’m really excited about. I’m currently also working with a few cool brands in addition to exploring some international ventures. It’s going to be awesome.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I’m from Sea Cliff, New York. Sea Cliff is a little hippie town by the sea that you’ve probably never heard of. I don’t know where I’m going yet, but it will be big. Stay tuned.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

My mom. She is the type of woman I hope to be someday. She is intelligent, confident, adventurous, and strong.

5: What book is your bible?

Anything and everything written by Kurt Vonnegut.

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

I love being able to express my love for fashion through my blog. It is amazing to receive so many responses to my writing and photography, both of which I am able to do freely and creatively with my blog. It has been wonderful to network with so many amazing individuals through this medium. I also really love Häagen-Daz chocolate chocolate chip ice cream, Brick Lane on Sunday’s, La Perla lingerie, traveling, 90’s hip-hop and Kanye West (I’m totally not ashamed to admit that). I hate Ugg boots, leggings worn as pants, Justin Bieber, the Skrillex haircut, Kim Kardashian, and that girl who plays Vanessa on Gossip Girl.

7: What is your raison d’être?

I haven’t figured that out yet, but when I do I’ll let you know.

8: What is your favorite color?

Gold, definitely gold.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Superwoman. How hot does she look in that outfit?

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

My favorite spot changes all the time, just like New York does. I’ll always love Gemma at the Bowery Hotel. It has great food, wine, and a great ambience. I’ve also always liked The Box on the Lower East Side and The Blind Barber in the East Village. I love the speakeasy theme and the chic crowd that both these places do very well. My absolute favorite parties, however, are those produced by Bang On NYC. From a 10 million dollar penthouse on Wall Street to an abandoned warehouse in Bushwick, they always get it right. Their parties are filled with great music and an amazing crowd.

11: What turns you on?

Men in suits, British accents, Georgio Armani’s Acqua Di Gio, the French language, an intelligent conversation, a great smile, confidence, and the quest for power.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

What are you wearing right now? A great question in whatever context you chose to put it in.
