After graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia with a degree in fashion marketing in 2010, she started her blog, Fashion of Philly.
“While in school, I noticed that there were many fashion events happening in the city, so I started a blog to share those events,” she says. “At first, it was just a creative outlet for me to express my thoughts on fashion, beauty and event coverage, but now, it’s grown into so much more.”
‘So much more’ is accurate – five years later, Adams has about 8,500 followers, and her blog has taken her places she initially didn’t think possible.READ MORE: More Than 800 Baby Turtles Safe In Stockton University's Care Thanks To Quick Thinking, Little Innovation
“I’ve been able to experience many wonderful opportunities, like attending the shows at New York Fashion Week, working with big names like Dior, reviewing the latest automobiles for companies like Buick, and even soaring to new heights with trapeze lessons!” Brittiny says.
This year, she’s hoping to include more travel posts and grow her YouTube channel with more makeup tutorials and style lookbooks. Already in 2015, Brittiny contributed to a CBSPhilly piece on spring trends where she shares her advice on staying stylish as the weather warms up.

You can mix up patterns and play with color even more in the spring,” Adams advises. “The art of fashion is what you find interesting and beautiful.”MORE NEWS: 'Mom-And-Pop Bakeries Are Dying': Homemade Goodies By Roz May Have To Close Due To Worker Shortage
