About



My name is Gretchen Donovan, and I am the voice behind Faith and Fancy. Standing only five feet tall, I am a petite twenty-something just navigating my way through this wild & wonderful life. Faith & Fancy is a blog that highlights my passion for style & beauty, and also shares bits and pieces of my life!

I grew up in Connecticut, before attending and graduating from Springfield College. I am back in Connecticut working and loving every second of being a maternity nurse! Although that keeps me very busy, I still make time for the many people, things, & places that I love! Speaking of, I'm addicted to coffee, I love to run, and I think New York City is the most magical place on earth. In the summer you can usually find me somewhere near the sea, and in the winter I’ve been known to cozy up with a good book. I love a bold red lip, a glass (or two!) of rosé, and a fresh cut bouquet of peonies. 

With Faith and Fancy I want to share my experiences, my passions, my inspirations, and all the things that bring me happiness, in the hopes that they may bring happiness to you as well! Enjoy!
