Spotlight on Merritt Beck of The Style Scribe

By Brookedujour @brookedujour
For my Reporting II class at SMU, we had the assignment to profile someone whose job we would one day like to have. I immediately asked Merritt Beck and she graciously accepted. I have so much respect for Merritt as the founder of the blog The Style Scribeand as the U.S. marketing director of rewardStyle. Out of the 7,000 bloggers rewardStyle works with internationally, Merritt is counted amongst the 25 highest earners for 2011 and 2012. Did I also mention she’s only 26 years old? Talk about beauty and brains!
I must have tried on about 10 different outfits the morning of our interview. What do you wear to meet a blogger that women around the world gravitate toward?! Because I decided it wasn’t socially acceptable to wear a ball gown to Starbucks at 10 a.m., I settled on a sharp blazer, my trusty DVF top and jeans. Despite coming from a haircut, Merritt (of course!) didn’t disappoint in a bejeweled sweater and jeans.
Merritt couldn’t have been sweeter and more willing to share her background, her advice for budding fashionistas, and her own plans for quite the fashionable future. I only one day I will be as happy and fulfilled by my life and career as Merritt is.Read below for a short excerpt of my article. You can read the full version on The Daily Campus.

Merritt Beck’s favorite designers are Tibi, Theory, Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler to name a few, but her first fashion icons were a little closer to home. Growing up in Austin, Texas, Merritt would play with her mother and grandmother’s classic Chanel flats. “I’ve always been very close with my grandmother, as my sister and I spent a lot of time at her house… She always let us play dress up (same with my mom). They both have an incredible sense of style and have always had pretty things, so naturally I was drawn to both of their closets,” Beck says.An inspiration and love for the fashion world emerged from her childhood playtime and today, Beck reigns as a top 25 blogger with her blog The Style Scribe and as the marketing director for rewardStyle.
