Miss A Columnist

Anda Bailey comes to Miss A from the heavy corporate world in an attempt to bring more art and creativity in her life. Born and raised in both Eastern and Western Europe, Anda refuses to abandon her 5’ heels in favor of the relaxed Southern California attire – her slight British accent and sense of style are among the only characteristics that still betray her foreign origins. While educated and trained a corporate lawyer, Anda has left the monstrous law firm days behind her and now focuses on finding and maintaining a healthy balance in her life. With a new love on her arm and two beautiful dogs named Mushu and Wally, she is set to conquer the world while creating and experiencing moments of simple joy and happiness. And by simple we mean planning a small and romantic wedding in Paris set to take place in just a few months. Yes, yes, you can take the girl out of Europe but you can’t take the Parisian nights away form the girl. When she’s not writing about love, life and rare finds in San Diego Anda writes The Tie Chatter http://lordwallington.wordpress.com, a blog about men’s fashion with an emphasis on custom neckwear. And so she embarks in the pursuit of love, marriage, fashion and art, and is making Miss A part of her journey.
