An MBA-holding, long-time Manhattanite, Rebecca is Stylewhipped.com's resident "girl-about-town." She can tell you the right bar for drinks with your new crush, help you decide the best course for a training run and makes new friends by carrying a fake microphone around a party. But Rebecca's real charm lies in her retelling of the slightly ridiculous situations in which she often finds herself. She feels compelled to tell her friends (and now you) all about what happens to her. Want to ask Rebecca for advice or suggest a topic or place for her to visit in NYC?
