MEET THE TEAM.
Inspired by style trends, shopping on a budget, a community of fun women and a good cup of coffee, Team GYPO is on a mission every day to give you the best lifestyle and fashion advice.
Our Mission

At Get Your Pretty On®, our goal is to change the way women feel about themselves- forever. We believe every woman, no matter their size, age, ethnicity or budget, deserves to feel pretty. Women who feel good in their own skin are always the prettiest – and that touches every area of their lives. By being the go-to resource for inclusive fashion inspiration and lifestyle advice, our goal is to connect with real women across the world, empower them to be confident, and to have fun along the way.

WHAT WE DO
We know what it’s like to lose confidence and motivation sometimes, we’ve been there too. Get Your Pretty On® was designed for real women, by real women.  By offering a useful (might we add popular) blog, a styling program to get your closet organized (who doesn’t love spending less time wondering what to wear?!), and a community of amazing (seriously, the best!) women, you’ll get all the fashion and lifestyle inspiration you need to get your mojo back. We won’t be surprised if you stick around for a while, it’s a lot of fun!
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Alison Lumbatis started Get Your Pretty On® a few years ago after falling into her own yoga pants mom rut. After a few years of working from home, She’d lost all accountability and motivation for getting dressed and taking care of herself. It was negatively impacting more than just her appearance, so she decided to carve out time to feel pretty every morning by putting on a little makeup, fixing her hair (in something other than a ponytail) and getting dressed in real clothes.

Since then, her goal has been to share what she’s learning and make easy style and beauty available to women just like her. Since the first Style Challenge in 2014, over 24,000 women in 20 countries have rediscovered their style, regained their confidence and made new friends in our vibrant community. 

Get Your Pretty On® has grown so fast that Alison can’t do it all by herself. Over the years, she has gathered an entire team of talented individuals whom assist in the day-to-day operations, provide customer support, write fresh content and make the dream work. Keep scrolling to meet some of them!

The TEAM
Alison Lumbatis

Alison Lumbatis

Founder

Alison is a wife, mom of three, entrepreneur, INFJ, coffee worshiper and goat lover. Yes, goats. At the heart of it all she’s truly a jeans and tee kind of girl who loves spending time with her family and exploring the best tex mex restaurants in Dallas, TX. She’s an accidental minimalist when it comes to fashion and style, mixing tried and true closet staples with a few seasonal trends. Her goal is to provide the inspiration, tools and support to make it as easy as possible for our readers to feel pretty every day.
Lauren Smith

Lauren Smith

Business Manager

Lauren helps keep the wheels of the GYPO train on track. She may be in her mid 30s but this plus size pretty is embracing her granny status in more ways than just her grey hair. You’ll find Lauren gardening, crocheting, and bird watching. No, seriously. She’s a #dogmom to Copper, obsessed with Instagram Stories and is currently surviving on iced coffee. 
Kathryn Buchanan

Kathryn Buchanan

Tech Support Manager

Kathryn hides behind the scenes at GYPO, making sure our systems run smoothly and nobody is caught pulling out their hair. As a busy mom with children always in tow, you’ll find her somehow creating events and maintaining her social life, along with volunteering for her community. She’s quite the workaholic, but if she isn’t glued to her computer, you’ll see her pretending to be a guest on ‘Nailed It!’ baking away in her kitchen. Don’t be fooled, the delicious dessert smell is just a candle. A girl can dream right?! Tag her in the Facebook group, say hi and share your favorite baking recipes!
Jessica Pigza

Jessica Pigza

Editorial Coordinator

Jessica keeps the GYPO blog fresh and pretty whether she’s writing it herself or bringing you the wisdom of others. After having three kids, she still finds herself in the occasional mom rut but rediscovering the playful side of hair and makeup has helped. She loves trying new products and applications tips, as well as applying the current trends to real life use. With a little research and a lot of practice, she is eager to pass on what she’s learned. When Jessica’s not researching for GYPO she enjoys cooking, catching up with friends and spontaneous road trips with her husband and kids.
