About Me


Hey, hi, HELLO, friends. Mandy Gragg from HAUTE UNOFFICIAL here. Here’s the scoop on me:

What you see is what you get.

Lover of dress up. Eloquent sass mouth. Nerd at heart.

Music drives my life: from old vinyl, performing in musical theatre, to being a classical soloist.

Dog lover.

Die-hard San Francisco sports fan.

Designer shoe connoisseur.

Edgy fashion, skincare, and nail art junkie.

I believe in the power of hard work and mentorship, not handouts. Sarcasm is my gift. If that’s you, you’ve come to the right place.

When I’m not blogging here, I’m working in tech sales, and writing as a weekly columnist for ClassPass. Check back every week for my picks on everything from classes to fitness fashion! I also partner with POPSUGAR Fitness and provide content and sometimes test product.

    Hey Mandy,

    I forgot how, but I found you and your blog several months ago on Twitter. I also live in San Francisco, though I’m bordering the suburbs near Daly City (I tell people I live in the Oceanview in SF neighborhood terms). I’m even more excited to follow your site now that I’ve finally settled into a varied and fun fitness routine thanks to ClassPass! For the last few years, I went to the gym, did some home exercises, and went out on runs on-and-off before going to barre classes on a regular basis, and now I’m discovering a lot more fun ways to work out 3-4 times a week thanks to ClassPass. Your blog will be an excellent resource for me for all things fitness and fashion. Keep up the good work! 🙂
