When we first met Ali Burks, we didn’t expect her to have a tattoo sleeve or be a three-times-a-day yoga enthusiast, but that’s exactly what makes her so fascinating, her unexpectedly alternative approach to life and fashion. Not only is she the buyer for Blinc at Inwood Village, but she is their stylist. A term that’s thrown around loosely today. (Side note: Carrying a limited edition Birkin bag does not automatically make you a stylist, nor does it give you a Rachel Zoe expertise on clothing). But that’s exactly why we love her, she’s the real deal!
