join the journey at the sophisticato

The Sophisticato is lifestyle blog inspired by the good life. The journey began when two long term friends and colleagues met back in 2011. Kathy and Rebecca were both working in the fast-paced fashion industry in New York. As they were furthering their careers and trying to balance their super busy social calendars, they came to a simple but powerful realization-that there had to be a better way of life. Besides their shared interests, both Kathy & Rebecca wanted to have lives where they could lead a more freedom based lifestyle while helping others to do the same.  They both wanted to pursue their passions while leading enriching & fulfilling lives and sharing them with their friends and family - and now with all of you. This was the inspiration behind "The Sophisticato". If you choose to join the journey  you will be the first to be immersed in our personal stories along with our favorite things when it comes to fashion, traveling, lifestyle, pop culture, and so much more. Join us on the  journey and remember to always Live Fab & Repeat. XOXO K & R
