About Jilly


Thank you for stumbling across my page – perhaps you were directed here through my Instagram, or maybe I met you at a fashion event. Maybe you found yourself drooling over a foodie pic I posted on Snapchat, or I could have even met you at a bar and bought you a shot if you promised to visit my page.

Either way, you’re here, and now you’re sitting there wondering, “So why should I care?”

Let me introduce myself. I’m Jilly from Philly, the creator and voice behind Fashionably French Fried. Born and raised in suburban Philadelphia, I currently live, work and play in South Florida. A graduate of Muhlenberg College with a B.A. in Theatre and Business, I currently work at a public relations agency where I specialize in event marketing and social media for fashion, retail, and restaurant clientele. Hobbies include food, fashion and fitness, and finding ways to combine all three. I’m a born comedian and microphone hog, and I never leave home without my signature sassy attitude.

If you’re still reading, then you’re probably still waiting for the “why should I care” part. Well, here it is. This isn’t just ANY fashion and food blog. Working in the PR industry as I do, I come across plenty of fashion or food bloggers and after a while, they all start to blend together. They present you with the facts about the products they are promoting that week, collect their paycheck, and move on.

Well not here!! Here, we are going to also incorporate my other favorite “F” word… FUN!!!

Yes, FUN!! Shocking concept – right?? Fashion and food (and yes, even fitness) can be FUN!! Did I mention that I don’t leave home without my signature sass? Well I’m bringing it directly to this blog – so not only can you expect cute fashion and mouth watering food, but you get it with a side of sarcasm! I want to make you all laugh each and every day while you’re learning something!

Sound good? Great! Oh, and there’s one thing that I REALLY need you guys to know, and that’s my fashion philosophy. Repeat after me:

“Fashion is what THEY tell you. Style is what YOU tell yourself.”

I’m not here to be Vogue. I’m not going to tell you what trends are forecasting, and I’m certainly not going to tell you to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a handbag. I’m here to help you find your style, and what I’ve learned is that when you rock something with confidence, you can pull off almost anything! Fashionably French Fried is going to teach you to find your style by finding your fun, and of course we’ll chow down on the way – because don’t ever let them tell you you can’t eat French fries and be stylish! Fashionably French Fried – Because Grubbing Out Is Always In Style.

(oh, and by the way, don’t forget to follow me on all social media. I’m always doing something entertaining!)
