New York vs LA It Girls
which one should you be?
When starting your journey as an aspiring it girl, it's smart to plan out which type you want to be. Do you want to be the elegant trophy wife that brunches with future first ladies, the club scene party girl that's always splashed across page six, etc.? There are so many types of socialite you can become, and it pays to know which city are best suited for your ideal lifestyle.
If you want to be a true it girl in today's society, you'll need to spend the majority of your time in either Los Angeles or New York City. True socialities split their time between the two, but until you have the bank account to back it up, you'll need to choose just one. Before deciding which spot is better suited for you, let's go over the key differences between NY and LA It Girls.
LA It Girls
The LA It girl is all about health, wellness, and vitamin d. She's tan, fit, and always on the latest detox or juice cleanse. She spends her mornings meditating, manifesting, and doing pilates. On weekends you'll find her going to brunch with up and coming young actresses, and doing yoga on the beach. Her favorite places to visit are Malibu and Tulum. She doesn't smoke or drink beer, unless it's at a sporting event and she's posing with it for an Instagram photo. Her closet is filled with gifted items from Reformation, I am Gia, and top Instagram boutiques. She's a walking Victoria's Secret ad; a sunkissed beach bunny with a taste for organic juice and acai bowls. Is it all an act? Maybe. But it's an act she's committed to-even when she's doing vodka shots at Hyde Sunset, she makes sure it's Gluten Free.

NY It Girls
The New York It Girl runs on caffeine and cigarettes. She cares about health, but status and beauty are more important to her. Instead of slow mornings filled with pilates and coconut water, the NY It Girl is either in bed nursing her hangover, or off to the next big event. She's a hustler- even when she's shopping or going out to TAO. She doesn't work in fashion or art, but all of her friends do. She prefers unique vintage pieces to trendy fast fashion, often seen in rare designer clothing she snagged on theRealReal. She spends her nights at rooftop bars, fashion events, and invite only parties in Brooklyn- yes, that's right , Brooklyn. The only thing sharper than her stiletto heels are her cheekbones, which are expertly sculpted by her facialist every Sunday morning. If she's staying in, she's doing it with 15 of her closest friends and bottomless pinot noir.
