ABOUT NEW YORK it GIRLS
New York it Girls is a life and style blog created by best friends, and co-founders Sana and Saman. Sana and Saman use this blog as a place to share trends, tips, travels, and personal style.
Sana and Saman are of South Asian descent but identify as New Yorkers more than anything else. Growing up in a fashion crazed culture, neither identified or looked like the ‘it’ girls they admired on television or in the media. They were inspired to start this blog so that their followers know that no matter where they come from, or what they look like, they too can feel confident with their lifestyle and looks.
Sana and Saman want to change the ‘it’ girl status quo, and hope that their followers are inspired by their personal journey along the way.
