How do you describe your personal style?
My personal style goes through phases! Right now though, I'd describe it as girly-classic with a touch of bohemian, and gypsy accessorizing tendencies.
Where do you find/pull inspiration from?
I find inspiration everywhere- from magazines to music- but I mostly pull inspiration from the curvaceous screen sirens of the forties and fifties (think Marilyn Monroe in today's trends- I love all the curve-excentuating clothing!), as well as images of exotic places, old Bollywood films and fashion spreads.
Name one you can't live without?
One fashion accessory I can't live without are earrings! Earrings can change an outfit in the most dramatic way, as well as perk-up your mood. (They can easily take your look from drab to fab, and transform it into a completely different style).
I never break this fashion rule....
I never break the rule of fit. It's extremely important to wear great fitting clothes, no matter what your size and shape. Wearing the right fit and can make you appear 10 pounds lighter than form-fitting in the wrong places. For me personally, I prefer almost everything nipped-in at the waist.
Your next must have purchase?
My next must-have purchase is this amazing pair of Jessica Simpson, strappy espadrille wedges in cream/nude (imagine the outfit possibilities!) Nude heels are timeless, but roped, espadrille wedges make a statement.
Most underrated item in women's wear?
I think the most under-rated item in women's wear is the tailored blazer. Funny I'm referencing a menswear inspired staple, right?! But it's so true- most of us forget the power of tailoring, and if you have a great fitting blazer that accentuates your waist, it can not only be paired with almost anything, but it will also last you a lifetime without ever going out of style.
For all the fashionistas, provide one piece of invaluable fashion advice.
One piece of fashion advice I always give is don't fall for trends unless they speak to your personal style. I do believe in incorporating trends, but not always completely adopting them. If you stay true to your personal style, what looks good on you and what you feel good in, your look will speak volumes more than the current trend you're wearing.
