Julee A. Wilson
Staff Fashion Editor Julee Wilson can trace her passion for fashion all the
way back to second grade, when she often attempted (always unsuccessfully)
to sneak her beloved tutu and princess dresses to school. Fast forward a few
decades and Julee now gets to, essentially, play dress-up everyday!

In her current role, Julee writes fashion stories and oversees the
contemporary clothing and accessories markets while also extending Real
Simple’s ever-growing brand on national TV and at events around the country.
Before landing in the fashion department, Julee served as an assistant to
the managing editor, Kristin van Ogtrop.

Prior to joining Real Simple, Julee completed internships at Bergdorf
Goodman, Vibe, Condé Nast Traveler, and Parenting. She has a B.A. in
Leadership Studies from the University of Richmond (VA). Julee lives in
Manhattan with her soon-to-be husband and a massive shoe collection!

Protect Your Skin From The Sun And Look Fabulous In Mott 50

I rarely (if ever) think about how well my clothing is protecting my skin against the sun. I figure if it’s covered–it’s protected. But sadly that’s not the case. Harmful UVA rays can find their way right through lightweight clothing and cause damage, including pre-mature aging (aka wrinkles). Yikes! So, for all the healthy-skin and anti-wrinkle fans out there, I […]

Friday Find: Cece Toppings

It’s the return of the dickie (aka the mock-collar)! I remember wearing them all the time in grade school. Oy! I think back to those days and cringe. What about you?

But, he’s not the easiest person to shop for. However, a few months back I overheard him say that he’s in the market for new watch. Jackpot! I knew the perfect […]

Friday Find: Nicole Miller Addison Bag

There is a distinct difference between my everyday bag (big enough to transport my life: journals, a pair of flats, magazines, miscellaneous toiletries, water bottle, several pair of sunglasses, etc) and my weekend bag (a smaller bag that holds just the essentials–wallet, phone, lipgloss and a book–that won’t break my back as a run around the city, while also complementing my weekend wear).
