Thanks for stopping by! My name is Vanessa and you’ve just entered this fashion maven’s haven. I’ve created this blog as a creative outlet for style, fashion, decor and whatever else comes to mind. I truly don’t know what this will grow into, but I do hope to inspire others while expressing myself. Life is a journey and I’m choosing to virtually share mine. A little more about myself; I live in South Florida, downtown Ft. Lauderdale to be more specific with my incredible fiancé and the most adorable little Shiba Inu named Appa. The name Downtown Maven derives after reading the Tipping Point, by Malcom Gladwell, where he wrote that Mavens are information specialists. They are the ones who tell you about what’s hot and they always have the newest inside scoop. Mavens amass a vast store of knowledge and are eager to share it with others. And so, here we are… I hope you enjoy!
