a person’s flamboyant spirit; style; flair: Danah loves adding extra panache to her everyday style.
backwards of ‘blastoff’; the launching of a rocket -— or something -— under its own power.
My name is Danah, the writer and stylist behind Panache Offblast, coming to you from Minneapolis, MN. I have previously lived in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, and I am originally from Michigan. My interest in writing began at a very young age through short stories, poems and proses, and my love for fashion has always remained a natural constant for me ever since my mom introduced me to the high-fashion industry and everyday dress-up. In 2010, I created Panache Offblast as a creative outlet, combining my two passions — fashion and writing — in hopes of inspiring others through my words and style.
I chose the name Panache Offblast on a whim. Originally, my blog mainly centered around various aspects of the fashion world — hence the word “Panache” — and “Offblast” is blastoff backwards. Panache Offblast = to blast off with style (learn more about the start of my blog’s journey here). Today on Panache Offblast, I share posts relating to fashion — my personal style, inspiration and what I’m lusting after; beauty — hair, makeup and skincare; and lifestyle — life reflections, self-care, art and home finds.
I have been referred to as a fashion chameleon, as my personal aesthetic varies depending on my mood and the occasion — I love finding inspiration in both the field and what’s surrounding my life in general. There is just so much to be marveled by in life if you just keep your eyes and mind open and believe. I am constantly driven by happiness, the heart and the ways I can incorporate positivity into my life, which is where the self-care series ties into my blog. I hope we can both aspire to continuously bring out better versions of ourselves and find spark in the little things, while remaining true to who we are.
When I’m not working on my blog, I love to read, write creatively, bake/cook, be in nature/outside in general, travel and spend time with my lovely boyfriend, Tanner and our three kitties, Snickers, Taco, and Oshi.
Wherever you are in the world, I hope you take away some inspiration from my own vision, and you feel warm while doing so and rejuvenated afterward. If you would like to get in touch with me, please click here.
