A quick word on why we're here
Hey, I’m Pippa! I wanted to explain a little bit about what compelled me to start Sous Style and why it’s such a passion project for me.
For years, I hated food because I thought it just made me fat, and I dreamed of living in a villa somewhere in Tuscany, yet my bedroom looked like a crack den. Well, not quite, but you can imagine. I soon realized that until I became comfortable with these aspects of my life—food and home—and quit dreaming about being someone else, I would never move forward or become the person I wanted to be. I noticed there was no place online that spoke to girls like me, so I decided to create one. And here we are. Welcome to Sous Style.
Jonathan Van Meter once described Charlize Theron as an “unrepentant pleasure seeker” who is “not afraid of a steak or a shot of tequila.” The Sous Style homemaker is exactly that. She is passionate about food and home and knowledge and love and life. She accepts that she’s a work in progress and knows for a fact that she’s not perfect and never will be. She believes that well-behaved women never made history, and she is determined to write her own story. I hope you love Sous Style and that you can get lost here for hours.
P.s. Here we are partying with Christina Tosi at her Milk Bar cookbook launch (Blair, Kelly, moi, Christina and Lianna)!
