Alice Carey Knows It When She Sees It

Meet Alice Carey, Author of “I’ll Know It When I See It,” Online Writer, Style Icon

Delighting in all things creative to cultivate her personal style, Alice Carey shapes her own destiny – one fearless fashion choice at a time. As an only child of Irish immigrants, Alice often assisted her mother, a maid for a reputable theatre producer on New York City’s Park Avenue. This exposure to affluence aroused Alice’s sartorial curiosity early on and led to a love for beauty.

Through the years, this aesthetic explorer has continued to immerse herself in a cultured life – books, art, the pulse of NYC – whatever sparks her passion for sportswear infused with an air of modern-day sophistication. It’s what captured the attention of Ari Cohen, photographer of the wildly popular Advanced Style blog and book, making her style an inspiration for the masses.

Alice Carey is one of the few Lincoln Individuals featured in the Lincoln Motor Company’s current print campaign for the 2013 MKZ.

A sturdy teacup filled every day with honest to god Irish tea.
