Your style defined in 3 words
Casual Trendy Chic
Do you prefer timeless classics or cutting edge trends
I prefer a happy marriage of both classic pieces and edgy trends. Mixing trends with classic pieces allows you to explore your style more.
Your style icon
What inspires your personal style?
The life around me has inspired the evolution of my personal style. I realized that as I’m going through different phases in my life, my style changes accordingly to match it.
Current trend you are embracing
Skirts: full, midi and leather. I love them ALL.
If you could trade closets with anyone for a day, who would it be?
Nicole Richie & Olivia Palermo
Best style tip for petite women
Highlight your best assets and always elongate!
What are the 3 items every girl should have in her closet?
A good pair of denim that will make you feel amazing even on bloated days, classic pumps that will go great with everything and a maxi dress because some days I just don’t want to wear pants.
One fashion item you can’t live without
Strawberry Carmex. Chapped lips are totally not fashionable.
What do you prefer – dressing up or dressing down?
I prefer dressing up my casual outfits. Comfort is key to my fashion success.
Where do you shop?
Anywhere and everywhere. Malls, outlets, online retailers, boutiques, thrift stores, etc. If they carry cute things, I’m there!
