How did you develop your personal style?
It happened over time, and yet my style is ever evolving. I try to expose myself to a ton of different aesthetics. By doing so, I find out what I like, as well as all the things I don’t like.
If you could describe your personal style in three words what would they be?
Feminine, playful and classic.
What are some must have items in a women’s wardrobe?
Sharp blazer, striped shirt and a pair of comfy flats.
Was there anyone who greatly influenced your style growing up?
My mom was and still is my style icon.
Do you have a fashion philosophy? If so, what is your fashion philosophy?
I try to focus on conveying my personality where the truth is elusive, just in the manner of Coco Chanel.
Are there any style guidelines are rules that you adhere to strictly?
I don’t believe in strict guidelines when it comes to fashion, however, the prerequisites of wearing socks with sandals are a big “NO”.
What style guidelines and rules do you break?
I like to mix and match, hence, you’ll often see me pair high-end with low-end fashions.
Do you have a signature that you incorporate into all your looks (i.e your hair a certain way, specific jewelry, or wear certain colors)?
I like to curl my hair a lot which could certainly be considered one of my signature looks.
What tips would you give women looking to elevate their style?
If you’re looking to elevate your style I believe in starting with your beauty rountine first. Clean skin with mascara and a touch of blush can be all that’s needed to look polished if you’re more of a natural make-up kind of girl. For that something extra, wear red lipstick.
If you could give only one piece of fashion advice what would it be and why?
Be authentic and have fun with fashion!
What stores do you recommend to women looking to elevate and grow in their personal style?
I love Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Forever21 for their everyday street style fashions.
