Tiffany Egbert is a local designer, photographer, and owner of online vintage clothing store, Kitten Paws Vintage


At 26 years old, Egbert hasn't wasted any time in the creativity department; she uses her keen eye for unique style, savvy social media maneuvering, and talent behind the camera lens to naturally make a name for herself around The Valley.

Her reputation for being the adorable girl with the awesome flower headband, cute shoes and killer dance moves, well, just comes along with the Miss Tiffany territory.

We caught up with Egbert on our most recent Wingman venture. Read on about our Friday night out on the town, after the jump.

The Meetup: 

The night started at Sidebar, where Egbert and her darling posse gathered to sip martinis and/or Shirley Temples, before rallying the troops to The Party Foul Reunion at Apollo's in Central Phoenix.

Wearing her ubiquitous handmade floral headband, rad tights and a retro vintage baby-doll dress, Egbert tells me about her Phoenix upbringing and introduces me to her creative friends, many of which she met while studying graphic design at ASU.

The Company:
In attendance was Egbert's boyfriend of five years, Andre Bunnit (who might just be the nicest and coolest cat I've ever met), local hip-hop emcee (and shirley temple drinking badass), Gospel Lee, Matt Klassen, Cody Nelson and Lance Linderman of local folk band, The Cold Desert, Johanna Ingram of local jewelery store, Harold Studio, and a few other sweetheart gal pals.

Favorite Spots: 

Sidebar's delicious drinks and a relaxed vibe make the Downtown Phoenix hotspot a definite fave in Egbert's hangout repertoire, as well as places like The Rogue in Tempe and coffee joint Solo Cafe in Gilbert. 

Heading over to Apollo's Lounge for the reunion of reputable Phoenix dance night, Party Foul, Egbert tells me her favorite places to dance the night away

are ever-changing, especially since nights like Party Foul and Shake! at the Rogue have come to an end. Sharing a mutual longing for the days when local dance nights had more authenticity, we're eager to make our way to the sweaty and crowded dance floor of Apollo Lounge to flail our limbs in the midst of the typical Party Foul debauchery, complete with a few drunken shirtless gay guys, and of course, Craig Citizen rockin' out next to the DJ booth.

Hanging with Egbert's crew is a breath of fresh air; full of energy, good-intentions and fancy footwork, these funloving folks know how to have a good time without getting shnockered. 


When the time hit  2 a.m. and the party fouling hit its max, Egbert was eager to get home and chug a gallon of water, ending the night with a round of hugs.
