Brooklyn Fashion Mavens Lauren & Merlyn


Meet two friends sharing their unique styles and fashion mavens around Brooklyn

Tell us about yourselves?

We’ve been friends since high school and also attended Penn State as roommates all 4 years. 


•Merlyn- I’m 25, Jamaica-born, Brooklyn raised. I have a fashion/Beauty background and currently work as the Community Manager for Revlon. I love to cook, workout (currently into yoga), explore new restaurants, and have a glass of Pinot Grigio while catching up on my shows on the weekends.  


•Lauren is also 25, she studied political science but is now working in finance as an asset manager associate for a private wealth management firm. I love travelling if I could get paid to travel that would be my dream job. 

Describe each other in one word?

•Merlyn- Lauren is reliable 

•Lauren – Merlyn is a Gem 💎 

What is your favourite memory together?

•Merlyn- there’s too many and yet I can’t think of a specific one lol. I would say our Freshman year of college as a whole. It was a new experience and having each other made college so much easier

•Lauren – Every time we would go to a college party together we would sing “We the too live crew two for me two for you!” 

What annoys you about the other person?

•Merlyn- She can be a very bad texter sometimes and takes forever to respond to messages lol 

•Lauren – She always forgets events and I have to remind her when we have something coming up lol. 

If you could go anywhere in the world together, where would it be and why?

•We’ve been to a couple of places already together but I would say …. 

It doesn’t matter I’ll go anywhere with her. We’re going on a European cruise this Summer! 

Heels or flat?

•Merlyn- Depends on the occasion but at the end of the day we end up in flats after wearing heels. 🤷🏽‍♀️

•Lauren – Flats! My feet are always in so much pain when I wear heels. Idk how the celebrities do it. 

Pants or dresses?

•Merlyn- Pants! All the way. 

•Lauren – Pants!

Comedy, horror or chick flick?

•Merlyn- I’m actually into action movies but if I had to choose, it would be comedy. I hate scary movies. 

•Lauren – comedy, chick flicks make me roll my eyes and I sometimes regret watching horror movies after I’ve watched it. 

Do you have anything matching?

•No, we don’t. But have similar things or sometimes one of us gets an item the other one was eyeing. 

Who steals clothes more from each other? 

  • We actually don’t steal clothes from one another. We’re different sizes but we do help with styling each other’s outfits before a photoshoot. 

What is your favourite colour?

Merlyn- Pink- I’m really into “Army” green right now 

Lauren – I used to say purple is my favourite colour but idk. I always find myself buying something green.
