Say hey, Meg Gegler! Meet the New York-based Unlimited member who spends her days growing the Coveteur, the style publication with a cult following across the globe. Previously at Refinery29, Meg is a pop culture, media and style expert. Oh, and she’s a fitness guru – throw her a follow on Instagram and you’ll see how fun (and adventurous) her workout routine is. It’ll make you want to get movin’. If you couldn’t already tell, she’s a badass in more ways than one. Scroll to peek inside her life and find out for yourself.
First things first – your style in 3 words:
Minimalist, cool, downtown…
The Marissa Webb Green Annalise Jacket (my second time renting it!), the Alexis Karissa Polka Dot Top (perfect for date night as well as fun dinner parties…), a Rebecca Taylor jumpsuit (I’ve been eyeing it for a while and finally was able to rent it!) as well as Lavand. black pleated pants.
What have you ‘hearted’ recently? (It’s every Unlimited member’s favorite past time.)
It’s Party season! So I’m hearting everything that I can possibly wear to my own holiday party and/or my S.O.’s. During my lunch break, I double tapped the Carven Cutout Flare Dress, Cinq A Sept’s Black Concordia Dress and an Opening Ceremony Patent Coat for fun.
Got a style icon? Give us the scoop.
I can’t narrow it down to just one! I think all of my co-workers are my style icons — I love how each and every one of them has their own style and aesthetic. They really bring it to work everyday!
Speaking of work… Tell us about your career! How’d you get there?
I work for Coveteur! We’re a digital publication that covers all things fashion, beauty, health/wellness and living. I wear a number of different hats, but in summation, I work on company growth as well as social media a bit. I’ve always been a loyal Coveteur reader, so when I saw an opening within my field, I couldn’t help but apply!
What power woman gives you inspiration?
Ariana Huffington! I recently read her book, Thrive, and was sobbing after the first chapter. She’s so relatable!
Why’d you join Unlimited?
I used to always find myself buying the same clothes and the same color (black…). My Thursday nights were spent running through Zara trying to find a cheap going-out shirt for the next night. More often than not, I’d have a black tank in hand because I “didn’t want to spend the money but also wanted to be able to wear it more than once.” With Unlimited, I’m finally able to have some fun (and color!) with my clothes — I love feeling confident in something new almost every day.
What was the last trend you bought that you wish you’d rented?
A mini-length wrap dress (isn’t that what DVF on RTR is for?!).
Favorite rental of all time? Where’d you wear it?
The Rebecca Minkoff Corinna Jacket! Although I am a sucker for all things black, but this jacket was far from boring. I wore this seriously everywhere — out to a concert, over my workout outfit post-Soul, you name it.
Renting gives me the freedom to…
