About 39NINETEEN.COM, Chris, + Melanie:

Fashion: It’s been a leading cause of mother/daughter relationship strain in the since the phrase “you’re not leaving the house wearing that” was first uttered. Determined to bridge the wardrobe gap between mother and daughter, and with a refreshingly fun outlook on fashion as a platform for multi-generational bonding and inspiration, 39NINETEEN.COM launches a fashion blog chronicling of-the-moment fashion and lifestyle trends on two generations.

Inspired by their shared love of all things stylish, fashion student Melanie Ralston, (19 years old) and Christine Bronstein, founder of A Band of Women, (39-ish years old) launched online fashion mecca, 39ninteen.com – fashion & lifestyle trends for the young and “young at heart.” The unique relationship behind the stylish masterminds holds meaning to 39nineteen.com’s genuine creation. As a pact to embrace one another as family, Chris and her closest girl friend promised to raise each other’s children as their own - cue young, hip, and vibrant fashionista Melanie moving in to Chris’ home... and soon, her stocked closet. Melanie had struck fashion gold!

After finding themselves wearing eerily similar outfits on a regular basis, Melanie and Chris were inspired to create a lifestyle and fashion site that shines bright amongst the many that dot the internet.
