Seattle's always been the Big City for style editor Zoe Sayler, who grew up in rural Southwest Washington and still side-eyes the whole flannels-and-puffy jackets situation. 

Before joining the SagaCity team as digital editor in December 2019, she was a fellow at environmental news nonprofit Grist, a features intern for The Seattle Times, and a frazzled Communication major at Stanford University.
