About Krissy Taylor

Born and raised in Tucson, Krissy Taylor is a fashionista who says she likes to try   to be spontaneous from day-to-day, but is also a homebody. She loves Tucson because “it’s home,” and is the place where she likes to have fun with her friends, family, and her husband, Brandon. Krissy’s a graduate of Ironwood Ridge High and The University of Arizona, loves traveling, and is often caught planning for her next trip (sometimes before the current trip is over!) Krissy’s favorite designers include Vince, Tory Burch, and Anna Beck jewelry, and her next trip is either Europe or back to Hawaii! For more on Krissy, follow her on Twitter, @krissy_m!

About Carrie Bui

While Carrie Bui is not technically a “T-Loc,” she’s been a resident of Tucson long enough to be an honorary local. Having moved here 11 years ago from New Jersey, Tucson is now her home, and she says she knows Tucson better than the East Coast. U of A showed her the true spirit and culture of Tucson, and it was while attending college there that she started calling Tucson “home.” When she describes the city, she describes one that is proud of its heritage and protective of its culture and people. Beyond the culture, she’s also a food lover. You will find her most often trying to enjoy what she calls the best French fry in town, Pastiche’s Corn-Crusted Waffle Fries (when they’re on the menu). And, she’s got a thing for trying on funny hats in antique stores. Want to know more, follow Carrie on Twitter at @carrie_bui!

    • Hi Tom,

      Thanks for your comment! I (Carrie) read about your store in the Tucson Weekly, and have been meaning to check it out. Krissy and I will send you an e-mail and we can set something up. Thanks for reading!

  2. I think you guys should have a “pet friendly” section! Pet friendly shopping, dining, etc. For many (myself included, obviously), pets are family! They need a section, too!

  3. Nice site! What about a sports section?!?
