About Me

Hi, my name is Manisha.

I’m a born and raised Chicagoan who has lived NYC from 2011 – 2018 and am now an expat Hong Kong. I’m a wife, dancer, start-up lover, a professional day dreamer, and now a soon-to-be mom. I strongly believe in the journey vs. a specific goal.

A friend once observed that I dress like I dance. I dance for an Indian contemporary dance company that takes classical and folk styles of Indian dance and adds a contemporary flair. In the same way, I love experimenting with new trends and pieces that change up a classic silhouette. This gives me the ability to highlight how each piece is unique while also being able to rewear them in fresh ways each time I wear them.  I refer to this concept as “rewearability”.

Thanks to the push of family and friends, I’ve moved from my corporate job into the world of styling and created this blog to share my aesthetic.

For any styling inquiries, whether personal or for a shoot, please contact me via my Contact page or email me at: ifstyledanced@gmail.com.

Hope you’ll follow me on my journey. Thanks for reading!
