From staff reports
Abby Hathorn, CEO and founder of the Vintage Inspired Passionista blog, has launched her new blog Sixteen & Successful.
This blog is designed by a teen for tween and teen girls who are looking for real and modest advice about fashion, beauty and life. With Sixteen &Successful, Hathorn hopes to show girls how to be themselves in a world full of critics. Without the overwhelming support and requests from VIP blog fans, friends, and family, Sixteen & Successful wouldn’t be possible.
“What I am doing with my life is normal — I have no desire to be a part of the ‘normal teen’ stereotypical generation that is being shown all over the Internet and TV,” Hathorn said. “Sixteen & Successful’s mission is ERICA, which stands for Empowering Relationships to Inspire & Celebrate Accomplishments of tween and teen girls.”
Hathorn also contributes to other publications, does live-blogging and social media broadcasts, and special event appearances.
In addition to fashion styling and writing, Hathorn is also the lead role in the upcoming independent film “La Madame” and was an extra in the Birmingham-produced independent film “Is What It Is.” Hathorn has had the opportunity to interview celebrities and fashion designers such as Ty Pennington, Ahmed Hassan, Emily Ellyn, Hilton Hollis, Joeffer Caoc and Karolina Zmarlak.
