Since its first post in 2010, The Stripe has aimed to be a daily source of inspiration for the modern woman. The Stripe is a little bit of everything: personal style, DIY projects, the best beauty products and books, travel guides, wellness, and so much more. We aim to leave you feeling like you just had coffee with your best girlfriend…. Savvier, confident… always learning something new!


Grace Atwood is the founder + voice behind The Stripe. She is also the co-host of podcast, Bad on Paper. Currently based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn; Grace grew up on Cape Cod, which she credits for her love of the ocean (and probably a nautical stripe or two). The blog began in January of 2010 (originally Stripes & Sequins), born out of a love of fashion, beauty, and making.

Prior to running this site full time, Grace was the director of social media for BaubleBar. Before that, she worked in marketing for Procter & Gamble and Coty. She has spoken about social media and blogging at panels for Internet Week, ShopStyle, General Assembly, and IFB. Outside of work, Grace’s passions include food, wine, art, film, her Persian cat Tyrion Lannister Cream Puff, and exploring everything New York has to offer.
