From the most influential educators and businesspeople to the biggest trendsetters and tastemakers, these locals are tops when it comes to making the Valley the best place to call home.
Most Fashionable Woman in the Valley Over 30: Tyler Butler, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility, GoDaddy. Also a 2015 winner!
How would you describe your fashion sense? Casual chic. I prefer simple, timeless pieces that can be mixed and matched in different ways depending on the occasion and current trends.
Go-to outfit? GoDaddy has a jeans kind of culture so on weekdays I am most typically wearing skinny jeans, a blouse or layered sweater/jacket option, and I’m always in heels. For events, I go for the gold and put something unique together. For casual weekends, it’s a maxi skirt/dress or bell bottoms with a bohemian blouse.
Favorite spots/brands to shop? I am a loyal BCBG junkie. If I’m not in BCBG, I love finding no-label, vintage or stylish-second hand pieces that I can bring back to life and that I know no one else will have.
Hidden Valley gem: I’m a fan of the Swizzle Inn, Linger Longer Lounge and Valley Bar. They have great laidback atmospheres, awesome staff and unconventional themes.
Annual local event: I’m a fan of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale Live
Local tasting event: Not only does this support an important cause, but it showcases the best of our own local cuisine, spirits and entertainment.
Spot to spend a Sunday morning: My crew and I brunch around town on Sundays.
Favorite spots: LGO, Chelsea’s Kitchen and St. Francis. Also, a coveted Sunday morning tradition is a hike at Quartz Ridge trail.
